IF the Rams do move back to LA, then I will have to renovate an entire corner of the fun room. Bascially, the entire room is decorated in vintage sports teams....Baltimore colts, Washington Senators, Seattle Pilots, St Louis Cardinals etc
If they become the LA rams again, then my 50's and 60s memorabilia, while vintage, would not fit in with the "defunct teams" that are represented.

Well this is very encouraging news. Wouldn't mind seeing the Los Angeles Rams/San Francisco 49ers rivalry once again with both teams being just a few hundred miles apart versus several states. There is no reason why the Rams couldn't be as successful in L.A. as the Lakers or Dodgers. In 2014 the Dodgers ranked 1st in attendance in all of MLB. The Lakers have the largest average TV audience per game in the NBA per the latest stats. If "done right" the Rams can be very successful in the L.A. market, especially with a state of the art new stadium. Its been two decades that Los Angeles has been without the National Football League and right now the timing couldn't be better with fans salivating for a team to go watch in sunny southern california.

I'd love to the Rams back in LA. Never got used to them in St Louie.

Yeah... and LA Rams sounds better than St Louis Rams. However, they'll need to play like Rams, and not like Lambs!

This needs to happen. The move to St. Louis has proven that the grass is not always greener. The Rams are dead last in just about everything. From value to attendance. The only reason they even make money there is due to revenue sharing and a lop-sided given up by a desperate city.

I seriously doubt the Rams move. The NFL uses Los Angeles to shake down other cities and get tax dollars for new stadiums. It has worked well over the years. Why move a team here and mess it up now? The Rams will spend the next year going back and forth with the city of St. Louis until they ultimately get what they want. This is much ado about nothing. Just like when the Raiders were supposed to come back. Just like when the Vikings were supposed to be coming after their roof caved in. Just like the Jags were supposed to be coming. And the Chargers are supposedly moving up here every off season. It's all smoke and mirrors.

I could see why you'd think that.

I recall during the back and forth, last ditch attempt the Vikings had during the MN legislative session when they got the stadium approved. At one point the Wilfs corporate jet was suddenly spotted at an LA Airport the day of, or right after a key setback occurred. Not as bloody as a horse head in your bed, and there's some doubt as if the plane even came to a full stop, but things did start moving in their favor right afterwards.
