ST. LOUIS STRUTS INTO L.A.
Representatives of St. Louis' proposal to lure the Rams away
from Anaheim will present their offer today in Los Angeles. FANS
point man Sen. Thomas Eagleton, St. Louis-based PR exec Al Kerth,
financial advisor Barry Blackwell, and attorney Richard Riezman
will present a plan for meeting the Rams' "wish list," including
retaining Charlotte marketing consultant Max Muhleman to raise
$60-90M in permanent seat licenses. Eagleton believes St. Louis
is "neck and neck" with Anaheim supporters trying to keep the
team in the area. Eagleton: "If the Rams in fact move, I think
they'll come to St. Louis. That's the big 'if.'" He added that
St. Louis' domed stadium will be completed for the '95 NFL
season, putting St. Louis "ahead of Baltimore." Eagleton
declined to discuss the specifics of the proposal but said he
thinks the Rams will make a decision by mid-November (Jim Thomas,
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 10/12).
