IF RAMS ARE WORRIED ABOUT NFL APPROVAL, IT DOESN'T SHOW
Published March 6, 1995
While there is speculation that NFL owners may make the Rams "sweat a bit" before approving the move to St. Louis, the team is showing no signs they are worried about getting the 23 necessary votes. Last week, the Rams gave the Angels approval to sell luxury boxes at Anaheim Stadium -- boxes they previously controlled before waving their rights. In St. Louis, Bernie Miklasz asks, "Does that sound like the Rams are concerned about getting the go-ahead to move?" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 3/4). But in Atlanta, Len Pasquarelli reports it is the owners' "desire to share" the $60M the team will receive from the sale of PSLs that may make the vote tight (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/5). Eagleton stressed that PSL money would not be shared: "There's no rule for it to go to the league. The precedent is to the contrary. The Charlotte PSL money went to Charlotte. It did not go to the league." Eagleton added that the team, not FANS, will pay a relocation fee (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 3/5).
