  • ST. LOUIS CLUB SEATS REMAIN POPULAR

         The St. Louis Regional Commerce & Growth Association (RCGA)
    used 100 volunteers over five days to contact club seat holders
    from the city's '93 NFL expansion effort.  Around 96% of those
    contacted renewed their committment to club seats in the new
    domed stadium, should the Rams move to St. Louis.  273 names
    remain on the list, but once contacted, FANS point man Tom
    Eagleton said "we'll certainly get 90 percent of the whole list."
    FANS, the non-profit group trying to attract the Rams, hopes to
    have at least 5,200 seats sold, at $700 to $2,200.  RCGA callers
    also encouraged club seat holders to write to Rams President John
    Shaw, and "many did."  RCGA President & CEO Dick Fleming: "There
    is a real depth of support for an NFL franchise here."  Fleming
    led the Greater Denver Chamber of Commerce during that city's
    successful MLB expansion bid (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST
    DISPATCH, 10/21).
