“We want them to stay, we want them to be here,” said CVC President Kitty Ratcliffe, “But there’s a price point there that doesn’t make sense. This community has a lot of needs.”

Ratcliffe says all told it would cost $900 million to make the improvements sought by the Rams . She says Governor Nixon is now talking with the team to see if there’s anything he can do.

Barring some deal, the Rams lease on the dome is now year-to-year, and the team could leave after the 2014 season.
