    Will they stay in St. Louis or return to Los Angeles?

    LA has real finicky fans and honestly, its more a Basketball and Baseball town. Lakers and Dodgers own that city.

    Whoever it is that goes there should have to sign at least a 50 year contract instead of leaving every 20 years or so

    I can say as a Dodger/Laker fan living in So Cal this is the truth.

    Most of us are transients coming from other places. Couldn't see myself giving up my family's Wisc roots just to become a fan of a local team.

    Rams is a bad nickname for a St. Louis team. There are no rams in St. Louis except maybe in the zoo.

    Just like Tennessee Oilers was a bad name.

    No kidding. The Cardinals pretty much own baseball, with all due (recent) respect to the Giants.

    Yes.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. Seriously, what the NFL is looking at is the population of the greater St. Louis metropolitan area (including 8 Illinois counties) is about 2.8 to 2.9M. The population of Missouri is about 6M. The population of the greater LA metropolitan area is about 18.5M. From the NFL’s viewpoint it doesn’t make sense not to have a team in the country’s second largest metropolitan area, particularly from the perspective of their next negotiation with the TV networks. IOW it doesn’t matter if the NFL team in LA is in “third place” since third place in LA beats first place in St. Louis. BTW, I’m not saying population is the end-all, be-all: The population of Wisconsin is about 5.8M. But the tradition and success of the Packers is what attracts world-wide fans. That’s the exception and not the rule.
