(KPLR)– In her first interview since the city’s proposed improvements on the Edward Jones Dome were rejected, the head of the Convention and Visitor’s Commission is speaking out.
The Convention and Visitor’s Commission runs the dome. And CVC boss Kitty Ratcliffe echoes what we heard Monday from Mayor Francis Slay and from Jim Shrewsbury, the head of the Regional Sports Authority. All say one of the biggest obstacles to keeping the NFL in St. Louis is the silence of the Rams.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke, one of the 400 richest people on earth, has refused to take any part in any of the talks about the Rams future in St. Louis.
“There really hasn’t been a negotiation at all. So negotiation isn’t the right word,” stated Ratcliffe. “In order to have a negotiation, two sides have to want to come to some reasonable conclusion. And that’s not the process that we undertook.”
