Fans And The Mayor Of St. Louis React To The Possibility Of Rams Leaving
ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – News of the Rams possibly leaving after 2015 was heartbreaking for many fans, including Mayor Francis Slay.
“We want the Rams to stay, but not at any cost,” he said.
Slay added that any plan for a new stadium involving tax payer dollars would have to be put on a ballot.
“This is a collaboration between everyone,” he said. “Right now there are no city tax dollars that can go to a new stadium.”
He is not the only one who feels that way.
“As a single mother it is hard, so I can’t justify more tax dollars for a stadium,” Elizabeth Deweese said. “But I really want the Rams to stay.”
She also said that the team was “on the rise,” so it would be tough to see the Rams go to another city.
“We are just now getting a good team,” she said. “A real winner.”
She said she “fell in love” with the team back in 1999.
That is the year quarterback Kurt Warner led the team to a Super Bowl Championship.
“That was a great thing to see,” she said. “I’d love to experience that again with this team.”
At this point, no decisions regarding the Rams staying or leaving St.
Louis have been made.
