As the stadium dance continues in L.A., there’s some unfinished business in Missouri. St. Louis hopes to keep the Rams via the construction of a new venue, and the NFL seems to be interested in fully exploring the possibility.
Via David Hunn of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the NFL has sent a survey to 185,000 St. Louis-area residents via email. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Hunn that the survey has two goals. Initially, the survey is aimed at assessing the viability of a new stadium in St. Louis. Secondarily, the survey seeks information about the location, seating, and amenities St. Louis fans would prefer. (It sounds a lot like the survey sent earlier this year to fans in L.A.)
“Our role is to assess the viability of a stadium and inform how a stadium would be best built in a particular market,” McCarthy told Hunn.
A new stadium in St. Louis won’t necessarily house the Rams. There’s a chance that the Rams would move to L.A., and that another team (perhaps the Raiders) would relocate to St. Louis.
