NFL owners will hear testimony in Dallas today from the Rams and Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's "fact-finding team" regarding the team's impending move to St. Louis. Owners will not officially vote on the move until their March meeting in Phoenix. Two items that owners are "expected to address" are the "preservation of the television contract" and the compensation the Rams would pay the league for moving the team to St. Louis. Regarding TV, NFL owners "are expected to seek assurances today that the Raiders will continue to give the league" a presence in L.A -- the nation's second largest TV market (Michele Himmelberg, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 2/16). During ESPN's coverage of the expansion draft, Chris Berman reported that the Rams' move is not a done deal (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 2/16).
