ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- The pre-season is over and the 2015 NFL season has begun. On Sunday, the St. Louis Rams will take on the Seattle Seahawks at the Edward Jones Dome in the season opener. But there are lots of questions about the team’s future here in St. Louis. Will this be the last season opener here in the Gateway City?

Tailgaters began showing up early. Some expressed optimism that a solid 2015 season would bring fans back to the Dome and keep the team in St. Louis. Others said they were concerned that the team would leave, but said they would support a new team coming to town.

The Rams and owner Stan Kroenke are reportedly one of three teams considering a move to the lucrative Los Angeles market, the others being the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders. Discussions about the possible move on top of poor team performance in recent seasons, have led to some season ticket holders giving up those long held seats.
