    There has to be a reason no teams stay in LA. Why would a team move from the #2 market LA, to St. Louis that is not even in the top 25 cities for population?

    The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana (California) area has 12.8 million people, the St. Louis area has 2,600,000 or 20%. Who moves a business to place where your market share will decrease by 80%?

    Maybe it's because nobody in LA wears a mullet?
    How's that 348 that turned into a TR doing?
    You ever read the multiple user ID rule, JVBJR?

    The Coliseum (and the yahoos that run it) have effectively run off the NFL. It has the worst:

    Parking
    Concessions
    Restroom
    Seats
    etc....

    I'm sure that it was a "Spirited" negotiation. If it flies...kudos to the new Mayor!

    I think it's a great idea. The problem in the past with football in LA was that they hadn't come up with neat things like those inflatable sticks to bang together, and RALLY MONKIES!!

    Because Georgia Frontiere got a new dome stadium and several million dollars in her pocket. While probably a secondary factor, Big Fish/Little Pond comes to mind as well.

    The taxpayers of the metro St. Louis area spent millions building the dome without any promise of a team. When they lost out on the expansion teams, all that meant is that the Rams were worth more to a city hungry for football. All told, the city had spent well into nine figures by the time the Rams played the first game in the Trans World Dome.

    Honestly, if LA does not get an expansion team or Saints, it would not suprise me if the Rams or Cardinals ended up there someday.
