    when someone says

    "I'm going to attempt to do everything that I can to keep the Rams in St. Louis," Kroenke said in a phone interview Tuesday night. "Just as I did everything that I could to bring the team to St. Louis in 1995. I believe my actions speak for themselves."

    In the early 1990s, Kroenke became the lead investor in a St. Louis group that unsuccessfully pursued an NFL expansion franchise. But Kroenke later purchased 40 percent of the Rams from owner Georgia Frontiere as a precondition of the franchise's move from Los Angeles to St. Louis before the 1995 season.

    "There's a track record," Kroenke said. "I've always stepped up for pro football in St. Louis. And I'm stepping up one more time."

    I know you like to dis the st.louis area and the local sports teams Wally, but Kroenke is a POS.... The Dome was not a Dump... it sucked for football, but it 100 times better than the stadium the raiders currently play in, the one the Chargers left or the current Rams home.

    The reason it sucked for football is the team sucked. from 1999 to 2006 it was rocking and was known as a tough place for visiting teams to play. Actuallt, from 1999-2004 it was the loudest stadium in the league. There was 2 seasons that Rams won 1 home game. Thats 1 out of 16.... so it wasn't the dome. It wasn't the city, it was the greed of a lying POS.
