OWNERS QUIET ON RAMS MOVE DURING SUPER BOWL WEEK
Published January 31, 1995
A random "straw poll" taken during Super Bowl week in Miami showed most NFL owners reluctant to take a position on the Rams move to St. Louis. "A handful refused to respond. A majority declined to comment saying they wanted to wait" for Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's report. The "most promising statement for Rams fans" came from the Cowboys' Jerry Jones. Jones: "When I'm looking at Los Angeles I'm saying where are our two teams? Yes, two. Los Angeles is huge for the NFL, huge. I am very sympathetic to the Rams' position and their circumstances. But this will have to be one in the best interests of the league, not just the Rams or Cowboys or any other team." 49ers President Carmen Policy said the league is "concerned the Rams have not done well" in L.A. and if the Rams meet the guidelines the league has set for relocation, "the NFL will be hard-pressed not to say yes" (Michele Himmelberg, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 1/31). In St. Louis this morning, the POST DISPATCH runs an extensive Q-and-A piece for fans interested in personal seat licenses (Tim O'Neil, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/31).
