RAMS OFFICIALS VISIT ST. LOUIS
Rams officials, not including team president John Shaw, were
in St. Louis Thursday "as part of continuing discussions" about
moving the team to St. Louis. The city's delegation included
FANS Inc. point man Tom Eagleton. A source close to FANS Inc.
said it was the first time Rams officials had been to the city.
Before the Rams visit, Eagleton said that the two parties had a
"steady" exchange of dialogue and "didn't rule out" possible
face-to-face meetings. FANS presents its revised proposal to the
Rams in early November and hopes to hear a decision by
Thanksgiving. MO businessman Stan Kroenke and Rams officials
"continue to progress" in negotiations to have Kroenke purchase a
minority interest if the Rams move to St. Louis (Jim Thomas, ST
LOUIS POST DISPATCH, 10/28).
