The CVC speaks! But, it is looking like the St. Louis CVC is not going to take my advice, bow out gracefully, and just let the Rams move home to Los Angeles sooner rather than later. I suppose I cannot blame them because once they lose this team, the Gateway City will more than likely not get a third NFL franchise. The CVC recently made it clear that the Rams MUST play all of their home games in the Edward Jones Dome in response to the news that the team will be playing 3 home games at London’s Wembley Stadium over the next 3 seasons. I wonder what their response will be when the Rams say that they want to play ALL of their home games in Los Angeles? This whole situation makes me believe that the St. Louis CVC is quite delusional and that it is smart to annoy the Rams and Mr. Kroenke just days before the “first-tier” deadline on February 1.
I cannot imagine that the Rams and Kroenke are going to see this move by CVC in a positive light: the Rams have a potential to make a good chunk of money playing those three games in England. This clearly illustrates how far apart the Rams and the CVC are and it makes me think that maybe the CVC is just trying to antagonize Kroenke because they already see the writing on the wall. Whether or not they are just delusional or purposely being antagonistic, there is no way that when things get ugly, the CVC will come out on top. Stan Kroenke did not become one of the richest men in the world by being stupid and being bullied around by some no-name council in charge of a third-rate
warehouse stadium. He will not be pushed around by these people and this little stunt may end up making Mr. Kroenke want to get out of St. Louis as fast as possible. There will be no problems with the Rams playing a few games in London while playing the rest of their games at the Los Angeles Coliseum or Rose Bowl, I am sure that there will be 90,000+ screaming fans in attendance in Southern California for their seven games here. Los Angeles will not try to pull this kind of crap Mr. Kroenke, please bring our Rams home soon! 🙂
