ST. LOUIS BOARD APPROVES RAMS LEASE; MUHLEMAN BATTING 1.000?
Published February 7, 1995
The St. Louis Convention and Tourism Committee voted unanimously to approve the 30-year lease for the Rams in the city's new downtown domed stadium. The question of who will pay for a practice facility for the team is still under negotiation, as the Board of Alderman recently voted to limit the city of St. Louis to a payment of $5M for any such facility (Fred Lindecke, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 2/7). THE MUHLEMAN DOCTRINE: Max Muhleman, the "patron saint of the personal seat licenses," is profiled by Lorraine Kee in this morning's ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Muhleman is in demand, as over six pro teams have approached him about PSL's. Muhleman: "Where people try to do this as a profit for the team, I would question that. You have to take care of the fan first. ... Sports fans have ... been left out of the sports partnership." Muhleman sees PSL's as a way for teams to stay in their community and not put "such a strain on the taxpayer" (ST. LOUIS POST- DISPATCH, 2/7).
