SEGMENT 1 – The Rams released their reasons for relocation that was sent to the NFL and it was basically 29 pages of Stan Kroenke taking a crap on St. Louis, Tim thinks the document sounds desperate so he’s actually optimistic after reading it, Doug wonders if this precludes Stan remaining as the Rams owner if the franchise isn’t awarded Los Angeles next week, lots of listener reaction to this topic as it owned Twitter last night, Tim still doesn’t understand the urgency to decide something this year because San Diego can’t even vote until this summer, expansion could still be a factor down the road as well still, it’s really irritating that the Rams proposal include shots about attendance when the product and ownership in general have been so subpar, Tim is still of the opinion that the team staying and being committed to the city would lead to a football renaissance in STL, there are still questions about the state and city financing for the Riverfront Stadium, Daniel Kaplan told Frank yesterday that the Chargers could afford to do Carson on their own and that scenario woud be easier to get 24 votes.
SEGMENT 2 – Ween Wednesday is a little embarassing to Doug when we have an in studio guest, Post-Dispatch reporter David Hunn has been working the #STLNFL story to death and joins us to discuss how he obtained a copy of the Rams relocation proposal, the document was pretty damning with it’s commentary on the region and on the Riverfront Stadium plan, Hunn’s heard that the Rams wouldn’t mind a year delay but he hasn’t been able to confirm that rumor, David explains how the deal-making could begin at the NFL meetings next week, Kroenke is liked well enough by other owners but Mr. Hunn still says Dean Spanos engenders much more sympathy, David thinks St. Louis County being released from the deal could still be a pivotal moment, he hesitates to make a prediction about what the ultimate outcome of this process will be, discussing the potential for a lawsuit by St. Louis if Stan is allowed to leave.

SEGMENT 3 – Listeners text and call-in with their reactions to David Hunn’s appearance and the Rams relocation proposal.
SEGMENT 4 – Doug isn’t so sure that Stan Kroenke himself is a brilliant business man, Douglas also draws ire from his cohorts by saying that the AVN’s aren’t that important, Tim is disturbed to hear baseball writers speculating that Jim Edmonds won’t even stay on the Hall of Fame ballot after the first year, comparing James Ballgame to Ken Griffey Jr., more #STLNFL reaction, Plow Boy is active on Twitter right now with Kroenke Mario Kart complaints, discussing Darin’s favorite frozen pizzas, Tim changes his theme song, Email of the Day.
