What do I do SP? Literally thought about this every day since the move was announced. Do I still follow the team or say fuck that because of how the owner treated the city?
Will we ever get another team?
st louis will never get another nfl team again in your lifetime. it's time to let go and come hop aboard your last salvation.
IMO if your team moves that far you owe them no loyalty and no one can judge you for dumping them. Its not like the Raiders moving within the same state, the Rams moved a couple thousand miles. Find a new team, bro.
Stan Kroenke seems like a piece of shit to me, and he certainly took a huge dump on your city, so no, you don't have to support the Rams anymore if it doesn't feel right, and it probably doesn't. Jump on the Chefs bandwagon while you can.
>Ramsbro is thinking about the jags
Welcome aboard my friend there is always more room in this train
Fellow Ramsbro here. Supported the team since their first game here 21 years ago. Despite everything that happened, I get it that sports are a business and both parties (Kroenke and the city of St. Louis) acted like shitheads over the last decade or so.
I guess I'll still put on my Kurt Warner jersey and root for the Rams whenever they're on TV. Can't throw much more support than to any other team or the NFL as a whole these days. Life goes on.
Perhaps, but I think London or any other European team would be a complete disaster. The NFL should stay in the U.S. simply to minimize jet lag and scheduling issues. If they want to expand to Europe, they should just bring back NFL Europe.
London and Toronto are two big ones. I really don't understand how people don't think it can support an NFL franchise. The Cardinals are ranked 2nd in attendance per game and the blues aré tenth. When youre bad for a decade seats aren't going to sellout anywhere but Cleveland.
St Louis will probably not get another team in the next 50 years.
They've lost 2 teams in the last 20 years and shown that if the cardinals are even remotely competitive they will not show up to football games.
There are plenty of other markets the nfl will explore first: london, san antonio, portland, toronto, etc.
It really is a non issue. When the GSOT was rolling the Dome was sold out every game. Not until like 2007 or 2008 did it get to where not as many people were going.
The baseball season can go into november, faggot. November is is two months into the NFL season.
I went to a game there in the fall of 2006 and there weren't many people there.
It's okay that you guys don't support them like the tardinals.
You did win by having them leave town so you don't have to pay for a expensive and sad new stadium, while still paying for the dome.
Either way, the Cardinals aren't there every single year. And not every game of the postseason or world series is played at home. Really isn't a factor if both are playing at a high level.
In the same spot m8. Blues games help soften the blow but come August I don't think I can bring myself to root for a team that shat on my town and left.
I get that it's all Kroneke and I wish most of the players well but if they're traded away or didn't sign them back I'd love nothing more than to watch it catch fire and blow up in Kroneke's face. I don't think they're ever coming back but I doubt LA will hold them long.
Who I'll root for pretty much depends who's on my TV come August, smart money is on the Chiefs.
Reminder that the alternative to the Rasm moving was infinitely worse than Stan Kroenke could ever be
How is this even a question?
If you're a homo you'll follow Kansas city
If you're cool you'll follow the Bears. Even if you're a Cardinals fan, whatever. Chicago is cooler than kc will ever be just think about that. Plus it's only like an 8 hr drive to Chicago. U can still catch a few games every season
>be from L.A
>born 1994 the year both teams left
>grew up without a team to call my own
>decide to be a pats fan because they're fun to watch
>been a fan for almost a decade now
>will never support the rams
who else /bastardfan/ here?
>tfw don't know the feel of having a team relocate
>rasm and the Aids Raid both leave before I get out of diapers
>no team in LA to bandwagon due to proximity
>root for the iggles because I liked a QBs hair
>you're not gay if you switch teams
>you're not gay if you become a fan of bears
what ever happen to loyalty?
>i stopped supporting a team because they moved away from my general vicinity
bunch of bandwaggon faggots in this thread desu
Toronto is just a pipe dream at this point though, the canadian parliament has actually passed a law that would ban the NFL from the nation if they tried to expand or move there, in order to keep the CFL from getting overrun.
oakland may be in the same state sure, but calling it "local" is a stretch.
You've been given a free ticket to root for any team you want now. Or you can just walk away from this sport because 31/32 teams end every season in ultimate disappointment
The Rams sold out the dome from 1995 - 2006. Even when they were bad they were selling out. It wasn't until they hit the worst 5 year stretch in NFL history(and combined with coaching staffs that literally banned former GSOT players from the building) that attendance dipped. They ended up last in attendance a grand total of once, this year. When Kroenke made it clear he wanted nothing to do with staying in the city.
I live in Toronto and on local news whenever the topic of a possible NFL team comes up the big reaction is muh CFL so I'd say a Canadian NFL team probably won't happen for a while.
