    That's why they play that week every year so that the kickoff is 5 PM and not 6 PM making it easier for people to get home after the game.

    The Rams had an average home attendance of 56,394 in 2011. The International Series games in London have averaged an attendance of 81,916.

    It's a no brainer.
    Yes, but don't you think this number would improve if the team improves?

    It didn't when the team went from 1-15 to 7-9

    When you've had an eight year run of futility, it will take more than one so-so year to win fan acceptance in a tough economy. But if a team shows sustained improvement over a period of time, attendance will improve, it's as simple as that. And if IT DOESN'T, then that city won't have a team for very long- and we have a very different conversation.

    So Stan figures the Rams are going to suck for the next three years? I don't care about promoting the franchise overseas, and Stan shouldn't either. His FIRST priority is to get support in St. Louis and this contract to play three home games away from St. Louis does anything but that. Sorry, this decision is ill-timed and it's no wonder why poeple are scratching their heads. Let's see what unfolds in the next few weeks around Stl.
    Faithful Rams fan since 1968
