"The Edward Jones Dome saga continues. I previously blogged about this topic and there is a new development. It seems the St. Louis Rams have rejected the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission (CVC) plan (price tag: $124 million, of which the Rams will pay $64 million) to renovate the Edward Jones Dome. The Rams have until May 1 to offer a counter-proposal on what they would like in regards to renovations to the Dome. Does it strike anyone as worrisome that in economic times such as these, public officials are scrambling to work out a way to funnel public money into a sports stadium housing a team that a billionaire owns and is in the process of trying to acquire another sports team?"
