SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: Interesting news broke late last night as the St. Louis Stadium task force has inked a naming rights deal with National Car Rental which is owned by STL company Enterprise, this bodes well for the city’s ability to support an NFL team but Tim wonders if it really has an impact on Stan Kroenke and the Rams, we don’t have to kiss the ring of the task force like perhaps some in the local media do, The Cat wonders if Kroenke would even be interested in National’s $158 million considering how much he could get in a stadium naming rights deal in Los Angeles, Doug is still hoping that Stan won’t be allowed to move because he never made a good faith effort in St. Louis, Tim cites Ray Hartmann’s article from yesterday which says that the proposed stadium could cost taxpayers millions more than previously expected, Sports on Earth writer & Deadspin founder Will Leitch checks in to discuss the stadium saga and preview the Cardinals playoff run, Colby Rasmus’ tattoo is Tim’s avatar for Fantasy Sports, the Blues Jays finna rake, Jerry Jones said the $158 million Enterprise deal would only buy a lobby in Los Angeles which causes Doug to call him a blowhard.
