NFL Shock: RAMS to relocate

 

 


The St Louis RAMS are no more.

Instead,  the team is moving cross country - from St Louis  to Los Angeles,  where they originally existed in 1946.

NFL owners voted Tuesday night to allow the St. Louis Rams to move to a new stadium just outside Los Angeles, and the San Diego Chargers will have an option to share the facility.
    
The Oakland Raiders, who also wanted to move to the area, were left out of the deal, but could move to Los Angeles if San Diego doesn't, Commissioner Roger Goodell said.
    
The moves end the NFL's 21-year absence from the nation's second-largest media market.
      
The Rams -based in the LA area from 1946-94 - will play in a temporary facility - probably the Los Angeles Coliseum - until the new stadium is ready, most likely for the 2019 season
