Why Did St. Louis Get Hosed by the Rams? We're Clueless Yokels, Exec Says


A new Deadspin article that calls the Rams' deal with St. Louis "possibly the most sweetheart lease of all time" asks a question city boosters would be wise to ponder:

"Why on earth," author Neil deMause asks, do city officials working on stadium deals keep "negotiating themselves into corners?"

The answer comes from St. Louis' tortured history on this stuff — courtesy of an expert in that torture: John Nagourney, a former sports management executive who helped the Rams get one over on St. Louis.

As DeMause writes of city negotiators: "They don’t know what they’re doing, and they won’t ask for help."
