RAMS & FANS SPEND "EXCELLENT" WEEKEND TOGETHER
Published December 20, 1994
A "marathon negotiating session" in St. Louis over the weekend between the Rams and FANS, Inc., the civic group trying to bring the team to St. Louis, resolved many issues. FANS spokesperson Tom Eagleton: "They were excellent meetings involving a large number of people, representing different elements of our proposal." Eagleton called the lengthy sessions the most "productive yet in the ongoing effort to lure the Rams to St. Louis," adding that "a lot was accomplished." Eagleton would not comment on specifics in the negotiations, or when a decision by the Rams was expected (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST- DISPATCH, 12/20). In a piece called "Identity Crisis," Dan Bickley of the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES examines St. Louis' effort to get the Rams after losing the Cardinals in '88. The community is "doing everything it can to regain a huge source of self-esteem" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 12/18).
