AdolfOliverPanties: More reason for the Rams to relocate. Come back to L.A! Georgia Frontiere is dead, all is forgiven!
hbk72777: In the mean time, start on buying old Los Angeles Rams gear on ebay before it becomes hot/relevant again.
FishyFred: The commission acknowledged that the Rams playing overseas would "elevate an awareness of St. Louis on the global stage." But it added, "Our lease with the Rams requires that the Rams play all their home games in the Edward Jones Dome.""Boy, we'd LOVE to let the Rams play in London for a few home games, but I mean look at this lease! It's just ironclad! Not that our deal couldn't be... altered... if we came to the right... arrangement."
konigsforst: Also, I'm not sure that I'd remain a Rams fan if they moved to London. Getting pretty bored with sports anyway . . .
madden101: konigsforst: Also, I'm not sure that I'd remain a Rams fan if they moved to London. Getting pretty bored with sports anyway . . .I'm pretty sure I wouldn't. I generally lost interest in them around 2005 or so, and while I started to pay closer attention last year, this year was a real kick in the gonads. If he wants to move 'em to London or back to LA, let him. It's kind of fun to watch games with no avid rooting interest. If Kroenke wants a sweet new publicly-funded stadium deal, he's sure as hell not getting one in Missouri (even Busch Stadium III wasn't built fully with taxpayer money, and the Cards are the most popular pro team in the state).
drunk_bouncnbaloruber: How much would Illinois pay for them to play across the river?
Lone Stranger: Screw them. I'm a London Jets fan!
JJRRutgers: Move to the London Rams to the AFC East and the Los Angeles Bills to the NFC West. There, perfect geographical symmetry.
Henry Holland: But...but....American football is the greatest sport ever, I've been told that for at least the last 20 years. If only those Russians or Indians or Hondurans watched American wankball a lot, they'd be huge fans, they just don't know the sport!
macadamnut: Leave England alone.
Ecliptic: macadamnut: Leave England alone.From Wikipedia, Attendence of Games at Wembley Field (London):2007: 81,1762008: 83,2262009: 84,2542010: 83,9412011: 76,981In the US the median of the average attendances at all stadiums for 2010 was ~67,300. Granted, they probably sell more tickets in England cause it's a once a year thing, but contrary to your statement there does seem to be a viable market for the game there.
