    Many St.Louis football fans feel the same way you two do. I dont put all the fallout on Kroenke though, even if he is the most convenient to blame. The city so wanted to get the Rams that they agreed to things they either werent worried about because it was so far down the road or they never had any intentions in living up to the agreement from the start. Compared to the rest of the league, the Edward Jones Dome was and is a dump and the city wouldnt get serious about a new stadium until it was 5 minutes past zero hour. Kroenke did claim he would like to stay but that was only to keep interest with the fan base and attendance until he could get the hell out of here
    Kroenke may be a shyster, but the city tried to hold him hostage and the fans got caught up in that struggle. In the end the city lost yet another NFL franchise and i doubt they will get three cracks at it. The fans can blame whoever they want, the end result is that Kansas City has a football and baseball team and St.Louis does not. St.Louis does have hockey and that is going to have to do.
