ST. LOUIS STRUTS INTO L.A.
Published October 12, 1994
Representatives of St. Louis' proposal to lure the Rams away from Anaheim will present their offer today in Los Angeles. FANS point man Sen. Thomas Eagleton, St. Louis-based PR exec Al Kerth, financial advisor Barry Blackwell, and attorney Richard Riezman will present a plan for meeting the Rams' "wish list," including retaining Charlotte marketing consultant Max Muhleman to raise $60-90M in permanent seat licenses. Eagleton believes St. Louis is "neck and neck" with Anaheim supporters trying to keep the team in the area. Eagleton: "If the Rams in fact move, I think they'll come to St. Louis. That's the big 'if.'" He added that St. Louis' domed stadium will be completed for the '95 NFL season, putting St. Louis "ahead of Baltimore." Eagleton declined to discuss the specifics of the proposal but said he thinks the Rams will make a decision by mid-November (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 10/12).
