St. Louis leaders respond to Rams' 'cruel attack'
ST. LOUIS (AP) Civic officials are firing back after the Rams' application for relocation to Los Angeles questioned fan support and the economic viability of the St. Louis market.
The Rams' application highlights the potential benefits of owner Stan Kroenke's planned stadium in Inglewood, California. And much to the anger of St. Louis fans and officials, it is critical of the St. Louis region, even questioning if it can support three pro sports teams.
In a five-page response sent to the league Friday, the St. Louis NFL Stadium Task Force wrote that it was not prepared ''for the cruel attack and false claims'' that ''attempt to punish and embarrass St. Louis'' despite two decades of support.
