RAMS NAMING RIGHTS DEAL WITH TWA AWAITING TAKEOFF
The Rams are "relatively close" to a deal with TWA under
which the airline would pay "millions of dollars" for naming
rights to the new domed stadium, according to William Freivogel
in today's ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Rams President John Shaw:
"We have been negotiating with them, but haven't got a deal yet.
We could announce it anywhere from the next two to four days."
Shaw said the deal "picked up some momentum" after the airline
got out of bankruptcy court last week. Shaw declined to discuss
how much the deal could be worth or the issues which remain to be
resolved (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 8/30).
