  • The St. Louis Trail Blazers?

    St. Louis might get a NBA team!

    A wild card name to buy the Portland Trail Blazers is David Checketts, according to's very informative Blazer mole. Checketts would probably want to move the Blazers to St. Louis. In September of last year, Checketts signed an agreement to purchase the St. Louis Blues.

              I would absolutely love this! I have been a diehard Blazers fan since the late '80's and would love to see them in person.

                Well, at least I'd have something to watch from January to April.
                The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                    The Chicago Group Has St. Louis ties
                    by Guest

                    My hope still resides with Checketts group but its nice to hear that the Chicago bid has some St. Louis ties.

                    Hopefully the team is sold and kept in St. Louis within the next month and maybe down the line moved to another division/conference for new rivalries.

                    1999 St. Louis Rams: Now that's a blueprint
                    by RamWraith
                    By Jim Thomas
                    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

                    Late in 1998, in a nearly deserted locker room at Rams Park, defensive linemen Kevin Carter and D'Marco Farr mentally surveyed the wreckage of what became a 4-12 season.

                    They made a succinct and almost desperate plea for help in 1999.

                    "We need help on offense."

                    Someone must have been listening. Little more than a month later, at a trendy South Beach restaurant prior to Super Bowl XXXIII in Miami, team executives John Shaw and Jay Zygmunt quizzed a couple of reporters.

                    "Who would you rather have at quarterback? Trent Green or Rich Gannon?"

                    Both soon would be available in free agency. One reporter answered: Gannon. The other preferred Green. The Rams went after both.

                    On the heels of the franchise's ninth consecutive losing season, a period that included the first four seasons for the Rams in St. Louis, team ownership and management attacked free agency like never before. Just three years earlier, then-coach Rich Brooks and then-vice president of football operations Steve Ortmayer had spent the opening weekend of free agency on a fishing trip.

                    Not this time. In what at that point was the Rams' quickest strike ever in free agency, offensive guard Adam Timmerman was signed away from Green Bay just three days into the free agency period. Today, Timmerman's five-year, $19 million contract seems relatively modest. In 1999, it made him the highest-paid player in Rams history.

                    Just a day later, the club added Green from Washington (four years, $16.5 million) to replace Tony Banks as the starting quarterback. In terms of average pay per year, Green surpassed Timmerman as the highest-paid player in franchise history.

                    The Rams had never done business like that before. Before the start of the '99 free agency period, they established priority positions, and priority players at each position. And once free agency started, they attacked several fronts simultaneously.

                    At quarterback, for example, by the time Green agreed to contract terms, the club already had:

                    Made a contract offer to Gannon.

                    Was working on a visit by Jeff George.

                    Had talked to Minnesota about a trade for Brad Johnson.

                    The offensive rebuilding job took on an entirely new meaning two days before the draft, when the Rams traded second- and fifth-round draft picks to Indianapolis for the Colts' Pro Bowl running back, Marshall Faulk. Miami and New England offered more, but Indy did not want to trade Faulk anywhere inside the AFC East.

                    Coach Dick Vermeil knew what he had in Faulk from Day 1. "He takes a play beyond the design," Vermeil said. "There's not many kids that can do that."

                    Just like that, the Rams were out of the market...

                    Rams owe reimbursement to St Louis PSL buyers
                    by ramsanddodgers
                    ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - They no longer call the Gateway City home, but Monday the Los Angeles Rams appeared to suffer another loss in St. Louis.

                    Court documents show a judge has ruled original owners of a St. Louis Rams Personal Seat License are owed a refund. The PSL contracts were originally for 30 years, but the team left St. Louis 9 years early before the 2016 season.

                    Now, a judge has agreed with attorney A.J. Bruning that fans are owed a pro-rated refund for those remaining years.......
