SHOULD THEY STAY OR SHOULD THEY GO? RAMS DECISION PENDING

     Rams President John Shaw said yesterday that the club will
choose from among three options -- staying in Anaheim, or moving
to Baltimore or St. Louis -- over the next two months.  Shaw:
"We'd like to accommodate the time frames Baltimore and St. Louis
have requested sometime between Dec. 1 and Jan. 1, although
there's no guarantee" (Jon Morgan, Baltimore SUN, 11/3).  Shaw
said, however, that the Rams are "aggressively pursuing" a move
to St. Louis: "That's not to say we will ever complete a deal
with St. Louis; we still have unresolved issues" (ST. LOUIS POST-
DISPATCH, 11/3).  Shaw acknowledged that Anaheim has "sweetened
its offer" to keep the Rams, but he added, "I feel that Baltimore
and St. Louis are offering something that Anaheim is not in a
position to offer to the team -- a new, football-only stadium."
Orioles Owner Peter Angelos said that he plans to meet with Shaw
tomorrow in Los Angeles and he remains convinced that the
Baltimore offer is better than St. Louis': "Baltimore is far more
supportive of football than St. Louis" (Baltimore SUN, 11/3).
