    According to Balzer: Checkett's Group NOT top Bid

    Per Balzer, the leading offer also covers the 40-percent stake held by Stan Kroenke, and the bidder is prepared to pay $725 million in cash for the team.

    KTRS radio in St. Louis reports (via Balzer) that the bid currently under consideration did not come from the group led by Dave Checketts, owner of the NHL's St. Louis Blues.

    Prior reports have indicated that three bids were submitted, and that Rosenbloom and Rodriguez ultimately could decide to keep the team.

    Some of our Cali friends might know this one......isn't Roski's interest in a team come with a swap for stadium rights? That is to say, not 100% cash?

    Seems like I heard that somewhere on here, but I can't remember who said it.

    Checketts not the high bid? That is so NOT a huge surprise.

    I read somewhere that the highest bidder is the ClanRam group consisting of AvengerRam, RamDez, HUbison and Nick.

    Can't remember where I read it though.....

    I heard it was going to be a de-commissioned North Sea oil rig with a stadium/casino/resort built on top, towed from port to port. Keep everyone happy & spending their money & the Clan braintrust from paying taxes.

    Actually...that's not as silly an idea as I thought it would be.....Cruise the Caribbean for a week this fall with The Cunard Rams.....The NFL announced the next twenty superBowls will be played at The OPEC Rams ( how about that for deep-pocketed new owners) floating stadium in Bora Bora, Tahiti, Singapore,Amsterdam,Rio,Venice.....

    OK...it's time for bed...
