Default Los Angeles Rams

Quote:
ST. LOUIS -- The organization that runs the Edward Jones Dome has made it official: The facility will not get a publicly funded $700 million upgrade that the St. Louis Rams requested.

St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission President Kathleen Ratcliffe informed the Rams of the decision in a letter dated Tuesday.

It was no surprise. After arbitrators ruled in favor of the Rams' plan over a much more modest CVC proposal, the CVC said in February it was unlikely to implement the plan.

The decision allows the Rams to break their lease with the dome after the 2014 season, creating the possibility that the Rams could leave St. Louis.

The team's offices were closed Friday for the long Fourth of July holiday, and a spokesman was unreachable.

I'd want them to move back to LA if for no other reason than to take the league's favorite waiting-in-the-wings threat away from them. I'm sick and tired of hearing about how LA is eventually going to get a team. Send the Rams home and put this insanity to rest.

They'll just run them out again.

Screw LA, they don't really want a team anyway.

Training camp could return to San Antonio

April, 24, 2013
Apr 24

11:01 AM CT

By Calvin Watkins | ESPNDallas.com


The Cowboys haven't officially announced when training camp will begin in Oxnard, Calif., but it's the second consecutive year camp will start on the West Coast.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the organization hasn't ruled out a return to San Antonio in the near future. The Cowboys last conducted training camp in San Antonio in 2011.

"No one loves San Antonio more than the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said on KZDC-AM on Tuesday. "I think they may be a bigger percentage of the population that are Cowboys fans in San Antonio than they maybe are in the Metroplex. We certainly cherish our relationship with San Antonio, albeit we don't have a specific time (on a return).

"My money says we'll be back there again. We always have a great experience there and we certainly never take for granted our great following and our great fans there in San Antonio, and the city there has never treated us with anything but the best. We certainly look forward to coming back there in the future."


The Cowboys signed a five-year deal with the city of San Antonio to hold training camp practices at the Alamodome in 2007.

Last year, the Cowboys returned to Oxnard for the first time since 2008, when they had training camp in Oxnard because of an event in San Antonio.

The logical solution is to just move the back to LA, it would kill two birds with one stone.

I don't know the original reason but very early on they started doing it and it went on for almost three decades through the sixties to the nineties. It was a tremendous marketing move. Even though the Rams and Raiders cycled through LA the Cowboys were tremendously popular out there.

McNair needs to take notice of what Jones is doing in SA. He could win all those fans in & around SA if he would just fight for it.

If the Cowboys play themselves out of the play-offs one more time on the last game of the season...

& the Texans continue to push towards a SuperBowl, he'll get them. McNair is doing a fine job winning the football fans in the greater Houston area. No need to move training camp now.

The Rams, long rumored to be eyeing a move back to Hollywood, may get a chance to break its lease in St. Louis next year.
In a move that potentially frees up the Rams to move back to Los Angeles, the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission has informed the professional football team that it would not be making $700 million worth of upgrades to its St. Louis stadium.
Teams interested in moving to Los Angeles were told to submit applications.
Kroenke, a real estate tycoon who bought the team in full in 2010, has long been rumored to have strong interest in owning a team in Los Angeles. Although born and educated in Missouri, he owns various professional sports teams outside the state (Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Arsenal). He was once one of the leading contenders to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Rams played in Los Angeles from 1946 to 1994. They got the nickname the "Hollywood Rams" during the '60s/'70s heyday of the Fearsome Foursome and won the league championship in 1999 on the strength of the arm of Kurt Warner, now the host of a reality TV show on USA Network.

Fisher - winning percentage .542%

Head coach 18 years, winning record 8 years. 4 div. championships


Kubiak- winning percentage .527%

Head coach 7 years, winning record 3 years. 2 div. championships

And Kubiak started off in a much deeper hole than Fisher.
