KEY ISSUES STILL UP IN THE AIR IN RAMS-ST. LOUIS DEAL
Published January 4, 1995
FANS, Inc. spokesperson Tom Eagleton confirmed yesterday that the same three issues that separated the Rams and the St. Louis group before Christmas remain unresolved. The issues, guarantees on permanent seat licenses (PSLs), guarantees on club- seat and luxury box sales, and practice and office facility sites, continue to prevent a Rams move to St. Louis. Eagleton said he remains optimistic that a deal will be reached, but he was concerned that the "prime selling time for PSLs is all but gone." Eagleton: "We've already passed up the best sales season of the year. Pre-Christmas, and then this time that we're in right now -- the playoffs, the Super Bowl. These are football- intense times ... and that would have been a good time to sell stuff." FANS hopes to raise $60-$70M through sales of PSLs (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/4).
