The idea is not to keep the name. The names: Rams, the football Cardinals, and the NFL, are symbols of St. Louis' sports past that should always be remembered, if only to motivate us to continue to move forward. There will be a contest in early summer 2018 to vote on the 3 Top Names for a St. Louis Football Franchise, that uniquely and distinctly represents our city, region, culture and heritage. Thank you for you input.
I agree. A name that represents St. Louis and its people would certainly have more meaning.
I think the CFL is developing a good fan base in the U.S. and would be very welcome in St. Louis. The Edward Jones dome is probably too large for a CFL team though. Most CFL teams average around 20,000 per game or less. The costs associated with playing in the dome would be very expensive. I would love to see a team here in the future but they seem to be ready to add Halifax and other Canadian markets before returning to the US. The ESPN deal is a real plus though for future expansion.
Understand where you are coming from about the team names. But the NFL had took two teams away from the STL. So it will be great if we keep the name Saint Louis Rams.
