PSL'S SELLING STRONG IN ST. LOUIS
Published January 26, 1995
FANS, Inc., the civic group in charge of selling Personal Seat Licenses (PSL's) for the Rams, announced yesterday they have received between 13,500 and 15,000 applications. With officials stating that each application yields an average of three sales, FANS "could be closing in on its eventual goal of 46,000 PSL's after just two weeks on the market. The team wants to sell at least 40,000 PSL's by March 10, with the revenue paying for the team's move and other expenses. St. Louis County Exec George "Buzz" Westfall: "So far, we have had an overwhelming response" (Lorriane Kee, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/26). FIGHT THE RAMS: Paul Wollam, a Newport Beach lawyer, filed a class-action lawsuit in Orange County against the Rams, according to this morning's ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER. Wollam alleges the team broke an implied contract by not telling season ticket holders they were leaving and by "playing at a very poor level." Wollam filed the suit on behalf of a new group called "Fight the Rams" (Barbara Kingsley, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 1/26). MR. HUNT VOTES YES: Chiefs Owner Lamar Hunt said he will vote to approve the Rams move to St. Louis, even if it means losing a portion of the Chiefs fan base. Hunt: "On having a team in St. Louis, I would be very much for that. ... The gain from having more people talking about professional football and thinking about professional football throughout the state far outweigh any loss of ticket sales we might have from the St. Louis area" (Doug Tucker, AP/ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 1/26).
