EARTH CITY, MO (KTVI)- Some St. Louis fans are not happy about NFL owners siding with Rams owner Stan Kroenke, allowing him to move the team to Los Angeles. FOX 2’s Seth Lemon is live outside Rams Park in Earth City with more.
Rams fans, or former fans, are purposely driving past the park to throw out unwanted jerseys and team gear. One jersey hanging on the gate reads, “Take this with you. Don’t come back.” An autographed jersey, allegedly signed by Hall of Fame member Jerome Bettis, was also left behind.
All 32 NFL owners met behind closed doors Tuesday night in Houston for nearly ten hours. The committee on relocation to Los Angeles voted five to one to recommend the Carson, California project of the Raiders and Chargers. The vote to approve the Rams move was 30 to two.
Although fans in St. Louis don’t seem to be very happy, those in L.A. are celebrating the team’s return.
The memorial is still growing.
