    Rams sale

    There are rumors swirling at Rams park that the sale is much closer than ever. Bernie said he's been hearing rumblings about a local ownership group getting ready and Jim Thomas said he couldn't talk about it when asked. Chip has "gone underground" and isn't available for interviews.

    Could be all for nothing. My guess is Checketts is close to getting commitments on the required money.

    Re: Rams sale

    im not entirely sure whats gonna happen with free agency etc...with the salary cap business being up in the air..but if it turns into a feeding frenzy by team owners where the best talent goes to the most aggressive bidders..i sure hope Chip has sold the team to someone with a wish to keep the club long term by then.


    if its Checketts so be it..aslong as they are ambitious and will do all they can to help us win..

    i am grateful for what Chip has done in his "interim-ownership"...as interim`s go..he really has done a solid job and made lasting changes... but the sooner our long term future begins the better for all concerned methinks..

    There won't be any state in America (Maybe Michigan) more economically devastated than California will be, by then. That's my opinion anyway.

    He's taken the Blues from the worst in the NHL to a playoff team in a very short amount of time. Can't say I'd be disappointed.

    ive heard quite a lot of good things about him..the only thing that seemed to have held him back the past was financial backing..but if he`s got that now then im all for him becoming our new owner..
    also the Eddie DeBartolo ship seems to be a non starter..and im not sure id want a new owner that is about 65 years old and with a 49er heart anyway.
