ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Passionate fans packed the Peabody Opera House Tuesday night for an NFL hearing on the Rams possible relocation to Los Angeles.
They were spirited, boisterous, even rowdy at some points during the hearing. Their goal was to make sure the league knows they love their team. Those in attendance did not shy away from showing their disdain for Stan Kroenke and other Rams officials.
About 1,500 people filled the building to make their case on why the Rams should stay in St. Louis. The new riverfront stadium task force leaders were present, stressing that Kroenke and the Rams have not worked in good faith to try to stay in St. Louis. Several fans echoed those sentiments.
Not everyone in the room was pro-football. One group chanted and held up signs that read: "Fund schools, not football."
NFL executives reminded everyone the final decision on a team's move is up to all 32 NFL owners and Rams fans aren't the only ones getting to say their piece.
The NFL has two more public forums like this. One will be held in San Diego Wednesday night and the final hearing will take place in Oakland Thursday.
