After listening St. Louis Rams COO Kevin Demoff talk about the arbitration process for renovating the Edward Jones Dome on Monday, it was clear that the team is hopeful about finding a way forward for the future of the Dome. It was also a reminder that a new look Dome is still over the horizon. When and if renovations to the old place do go forward, the Rams could be playing their home games in a temporary location.
Where, you ask?
According to this report out of Columbia, Mo., the Rams could play their games at Mizzou's Faurot Field or at Busch Stadium.
The Vikings are going to share a field with the University of Minnesota while the Metro Dome is rebuilt. That comes with a cost as the team has to pay for the appropriate retrofitting to outfit the place for NFL football. That said, it could be a real boon (Boone County that is!) to the Rams' brand in a state that is mostly dominated by Chiefs fans.
As for Busch Stadium, the Rams played in the old one, Busch II, when they first moved to St. Louis, but you probably didn't see any of those games. Nobody did.
