The Rams are threatening to move back to LA?
I just got used to them in Saint Louis.
As we’ve said before, for many pro sports is a religion. As such the fervor and irrational behavior of adherents to the creed are manipulated by the people who run the show. Just like any religion.
Don’t get me wrong this is not an indictment of religion (I am a Christian) or football per se. But it is an indictment of the insanity which surrounds professional sports generally. People lose their minds when it comes to “their team.”

Remember when teams used to play in the same building for 50 or 60 years? That was when team owners paid for their own buildings.
As of 2012, 125 of the 140 teams in the NFL, Major League Baseball, NBA, NHL and Major League Soccer, were playing in stadiums built or refurbished since 1990. Most, if not all of them, were paid for mostly with tax payer dollars at a cost of more than $30 billion.
