    Update: Fisher meeting continues/only hang up possible move to LA

    Per tony softli

    Meetings with Coach Fisher and Rams continue here at Rams Park. The longer he stays the better!
    Per Jim Thomas

    Looks like only possible hangup for Jeff Fisher and the Rams are concerns about team moving to LA.

    Concerned? ...or anxious about a possible move? I doubt that the possibility of moving the team back to his old stompin' ground would be a negative. In fact, I'm betting he would hope for such a move and probably wants the inside "truth" about it. Getting back to the larger TV market and a brand new state-of-the-art stadium would be an incentive, I would think.

    I dont think would care if they moved or not as long as he gets the power and control he wants.

    ...alternatively, having already been in charge of one team that needed rebuilding and also moved cities, he'd prefer the security and stability of knowing the franchise was staying put?

    If you're looking to build a side and settle into a new city, you probably don't want to hear that you'll be moving all over again 24 months down the line. Won't make recruiting fas any easier or be any more enjoyable on a personal level, imo.

    I bet Fisher is hoping for some assurances from Kroenke, that he wont have to work out of a portacabins. The Houston/Tennesee relocation was awful for Fisher remember.

    Aside from the Fans perspective, whether it moves or not wont affect the organisation as much as some think, same owner, same coaches, same players ... only in different uniforms. there just moving offices ... To bigger, flasher newer offices & facilities ... sounds terrible right?

    Per Jim Thomas

    .
    Looks like Rams Park visit is breaking up soon.

    QB Sam Bradford has left Rams Park.
    Hope we don't let him leave without a contract. I won't feel as optimistic if we do let him leave without a contract.

    So the players all live in LA already? Some have kids at school there? Friends, family, networks? Same for the coaches or admin staff?

    And how do you sell a city to a free agent when you're going to be leaving it in just over a year? 'Come and bring your family here...then move halfway across the country in a couple of years'.

    Sure, California's warmer, has better beaches and might get a shiny new stadium, but I don't think such a big move is quite as appealing as you paint (which is not to say LA isn't appealing, more the mass uprooting).

    I don't think they will break that news today... they have not started negotiating as of yet.

    But with all the people at Rams park today we should get some good vibes.. or not

    I'm saying in the sense like a free agent. Sure you make the contract offer but usually if they leave without officially signing the contract you don't get the guy. So when I said don't let him leave without a contract I mean an actual deal not an offer
