( KTRS ) The cities of Oakland, San Diego and St. Louis made their pitches, yesterday, to save their teams from moving to Los Angeles.
Officials from those cities spoke to a number of the league’s committees about preventing the potential relocation of their teams, Gov. Jay Nixon and his stadium task force presented their plan for a new riverfront arena in St. Louis. The Raiders and Chargers have combined on a project in Carson, California, that would cost about $1.78 billion. Rams owner Stan Kroenke is pushing a rival project in nearby Inglewood.
The league has set a special meeting in Dallas on Dec. 2 at which substantial steps could come, including moving up from January the deadline for application to relocate.
