St. Louis Rams' London Engagement Caught In Lease Imbroglio

The stories about the St. Louis Rams becoming Europe's team look to be a little premature—Turf Show Times, who's been on top of this from the beginning, is reporting that the Rams' omnipresent lease issues might put the kibosh on their 2012 date in London, England. Ticket sales have stopped over the Convention and Visitors Commission's insistence that becoming British boarders violates the terms of their lease. No word yet as to whether Dave Cameron has taken the tags off his Sam Bradford shersey.

This is just the latest in a run of embarrassing lodging situations that have threatened to distract from the Rams' formerly impressive offseason—Jeff Fisher is nice, but the Rams have yet to prove up to the task of proving to him—and fans skeptical after last season's supposed breakout potential—where he'll play and when.

Meanwhile: Season ticket holders are left to wonder just how many tickets they'll have to try to sell this year. That might be the most pressing issue, in the short-term: across St. Louis, StubHub tabs remain open for the duration of the schedule drama.
