Sando: Will Rams Regret London Move?
The Rams' agreement to play three games in London has drawn criticism. Mike Sando wonders if St. Louis will regret its decision. Blog
The deal announced late Tuesday allows the Rams to play the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28. The lease had required the team to play all home games at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.
In exchange, the Rams agreed to increase the number of football season weekends that the dome can be booked for other uses. The team will also pay temporary employees the wages they would have earned by working the game in St. Louis.
The Rams also want to play games in London in 2013 and 2014. No deal has been worked out on those games.
