The NFL season is now over, so it’s only right that we look to the future. The New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 21-17 in the Super Bowl, and speaking of the Patriots, they are in the middle of a little controversy that includes the Rams. Unfortunately, this controversy has nothing to do with video taping or cheating. This is the Rams/London controversy.
As you may know, the CVC has told the Rams that playing their Oct. 28 “home” game against the aforementioned Patriots in London is a violation of their lease agreement. That problem could be a thing of the past, however, as the organization and CVC are nearing an agreement that would allow the Rams to play the Patriots and games the following two seasons overseas.
Rams VP Kevin Demoff said the deal is nearing completion and tickets for the Patriots ame could go on sale as soon as this week. Tickets sales were postponed when the CVC announced the issue, so the fact that they are planning to go on with sales is a very good thing. I was afraid this was going to be the first major issue between the two sides, but the fact that they resolved this so easily and quickly gives hope that the two sides will be able to play nice in future negotiations as well. We still have a long way to go, but this is one crisis averted.
