In a matter of hours, residents of St. Louis and the state of Missouri will get their first look at the St. Louis Rams' counter proposal for the Edward Jones Dome. That plan, along with additional documents related to the ongoing negotiations between the Rams and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, are being released Monday by Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster.

TST will be receiving a copy, and will make those available to readers.

We know that the plans call for a retractable roof on the Dome, which translates to a significantly higher price tag than the $124 million fix up offer presented by the CVC to start the process. Beyond that, specifics are unknown.

Beyond the details of the roof, the most important item in the proposal will be the cost and how it gets divided between the team and the public. Expect discussions to center on that, for obvious reasons.

Talk about a vacant Los Angeles market will also bubble up around the internet and talk radio. Regardless of where you stand - I know we have a ton of LA folks in our community here - it's important to remember that there is a long way to go on this issue. The Minnesota stadium negotiations went down to the absolute last minute. Negotiations between the Rams and the CVC are likely to do the same, even with an end-of-the-year deadline for non-binding arbitration over Dome plans.

In Los Angeles, a dedicated and active group of Rams fans are working hard to blow up the myth that football lacks support for a team there. I wrote a profile of Bring Back The Los Angeles Rams for SBNation.com today. I encourage you to go give it a read, and discuss.
