ONE REPORT SAYS RAMS DO NOT HAVE VOTES TO GET MOVE APPROVED
Published February 24, 1995
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the Rams do not have the 3/4 votes from NFL owners necessary to approve a move to St. Louis. According to high ranking NFL officials and owners, Mortensen said the Rams "just didn't prove their case" at the recent owners meetings in Dallas. Mortensen: "The initial finding being that the poor state of the Anaheim franchise has been exaggerated, the team has not been managed properly and the team may just be on a money grab that has complex revenue sharing issues." Mortensen said the Rams may be forced to share their "windfall" with the league in order to get approval. If Rams Owner Georgia Frontiere wants her "own personal fortune" out of the deal, the league may suggest she sell her share to Stan Kroenke, a "purchase the league would like done in a reasonable amount of time." If Frontiere "balks at such an arrangement," then "who knows what will happen" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 2/23).
