RAIDERS APPROVAL LEAVES RAMS ASKING "WHAT ABOUT US?"
Published July 24, 1995
Rams President John Shaw said the team may consider legal action against the NFL or "perhaps holding up and putting into escrow" a November relocation fee payment due to the league. Shaw said the NFL's lack of action in regards to the Raiders after they charged the Rams a $29M relocation fee and $17M in PSL money is inconsistent (Lorraine Kee, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 7/23). Bernie Miklasz writes, "If Davis had decided to move to St. Louis, would he be surrendering $29 million to the NFL? I think not. Davis terrifies the NFL boys." Miklasz calls for the Rams to "refuse to pay one nickel" of the fee (ST. LOUIS POST- DISPATCH, 7/24). In L.A., Mike Penner writes that Shaw "should have argued that the Rams aren't relocating to St. Louis, they're merely stopping over on their way back home to Cleveland" (L.A. TIMES, 7/23).
