St. Louis Rejects Rams' $700 Million Upgrade of Ed Jones Dome

11

The Rams have a unique lease with St. Louis, and one of the stipulations of said lease is that if the stadium where the Rams are playing (the aforementioned Ed Jones Dome) is not considered a "1st Tier Venue" -- which essentially means being just as good, or better, then the Top 8 stadiums in the NFL -- the lease can be broken in 2015. There are revenue projections that the Rams can use to determine what a Top 8 stadium looks like, but what the stipulation really means is that if the Rams organization and the city of St. Louis can't come to an agreement on either an upgrade to the current dome or the building of a new stadium in the next year-and-a-half, the Rams would be free to relocate to another city.....say, Los Angeles. The city and the Rams will next try to negotiate a compromise deal, but the Rams do retain the right to refuse and, ultimately, leave town (if they so choose). There's probably a lot of time left before a final decision will be made.
