St. Louis Rams wide receiver Steve Smith says L.A. has a distinct appeal over the Midwest.

Ouch. Kind stings for us St. Louis fans, no?
Steve Smith on whether he'd sign with a Los Angeles team over a comparable Jags offer: "Yeah :)"— Jason Kirk (@JasonKirkSBN) January 18, 2013
Yeah, playing in LA would probably appeal to a former USC player, who obviously isn't going to be back with the Rams in St. Louis anyway.
I'm sure the Rams media and marketing departments will be thrilled to hear Smith's opinion on the matter.
