    As everyone here knows about me,I was the happiest man alive when the Rams moved back to LA where they belong but what I was NOT happy about,was the WAY they did it.They LIED to the city about their intentions of wanting to stay in stank louis to work out a deal and get something done there which was a violation of NFL relocation rules ESPECIALLY since stank louis officials had to spend a lot of money in their planning to try and get a stadium plan to try and keep them there.

    Stan Kroneke lied when he first bought the Rams saying he would try and get something done to stay there but he ALWAYS had his eyes on LA from the very get go when he first bought them.The fact he lied to them and was not upfront and truthful about his intentions is one thing i did not like about in the Rams move back to LA.

    To avoid court,the NFL and the Rams reached a settlement to them and awarded them money. The corrupt NFL fought tooth and nail to try and keep this lawuit from happening but they failed.Cool to see the NFL NOT getting their way for once like they have in their whole existance.:abgg2q.jpg::clap2::clap2::clap2::clap2::dance:

    Rams agree to pull out checkbook, pay $24 million to 'St. Louis' PSL holders

    The thing i just dont get is WHY wont the fucking Oakland officials sue them as well as keeps getting reported for so long that they plan a lawsuit.It does not make sense because they have an even MUCH stronger case against the NFL for violating NFL relocation rules.:rolleyes:

    Thier case is airtight against the NFL. The NFL would so much lose their asses in court if THEY sued them as well.:mad:

    They would more than likely retain their name and logo just as cleveland did when THEY threatened to sue modell and the NFL when he planned to take the name and logo to Baltimore but in a settlement,to avoid a lawsuit and going to court,he left the name and logo in cleveland. The only thing that makes ANY sense WHY the oakland officials have STILL not filed is the oakland officials have all been bought off by the NFL.:mad::rolleyes:

    As an Oaklandtown Gal, I will be ecstatic to see the backside of the Raiders and hope their flabby asses are quite bruised when the door hits them. The Raiders bled out Oakland; I wish they had never returned from LA.

    Good riddance and time to move on. Endless litigation is not going to do the city any good.

    These greedy fucks will go wherever someone will build them a free stadium. They are all billionaires. They should build their own stadiums. Not only do the local taxpayers foot the bill for the stadium, but once the thing is built, the ticket prices are so astronomical, no one can afford to buy them except corporations. $24 Million is a pittance to these people. The constant threats to move amount to extortion and blackmail.

    that is WHY i am proud of stank louis,san diego AND Oakland for standing up the corrupt NFL and telling these asshole owners-build your own fucking stadium.:clap:

    I am VERY dissapointed in Minnesoto for wanting to keep the vikings so badly that they gave in and gave those greedy fucks in the NFL like you said so brilliantly:thup: their money so they could have their new shiny stadium. shame on you minnesota and NOW vegas for caving into these greedy asshole fucks.:mad:

    The NFL, as in all professional sports alongside it, serves as a bottom line and nothing more. Don’t ever let these owners try and convince you that they give a damn about the community in which their team is located. It’s all hoopla.

    If team A is unprofitable in location A, they will jump ship to location B on a whim without any regard for the people at A.

    The NFL is probably the worst of the four major NA professional sports, however. The Rams and the Raiders dicking in and out of L.A., Art Modell and Baltimore, the original Baltimore Colts being whisked away to Indianapolis in the dead of the night. Shameless shit.
