Department of Irony Department

Not to put too fine a point on it, but people in St. Louis, who have a professional football team because the late, odious Georgia Frontiere ran the Anaheim Los Angeles Rams into the ground and then took a sweet deal from their fair city, shouldn’t be too surprised if and when those same Rams up and move somewhere else – whether it’s Los Angeles or some other city waving dollars in their faces.

I still remember when the Rams won their 2000 Super Bowl over Tennessee, and Frontiere thanked all the fans in St. Louis while ignoring those who had grown up with the team she had ruined and yanked away from them just five years earlier.

Classy.

Still, I know St. Louis has suffered before – Bill Bidwell spirited their beloved Cardinals out to Arizona. But really – live by the greedy owner, die by the greedy owner.

Here’s a hint: college teams don’t relocate.
