07:31 PM ET 02.11 | The St. Louis Rams are in an interesting situation and it has their fans very nervous about the future of the Rams in St. Louis. The team wants either a new stadium or significant upgrades to the current stadium they have right now, the Edward Jones Dome, or they're going to find a city that will satisfy their needs. St. Louis officials scored a major victory when it comes to getting the Rams those updates, but the decision to upgrade the Edward Jones Dome is ultimately up to the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission and they haven't officially signed off any any upgrades to any stadium yet. But while that's cause for concern, officials are telling fans to take a chill pill, because even if the team does leave they can't do so until 2015.

I've read before that their dome has recently gone major renovation including an increase in luxury suites.

Nothing will satisfy the owners until st louis agrees to build a new tax payer funded stadium. Once all the owners get richer b/c of the ticket increase, the rams will win a Super Bowl.

The rams should be headed to l.a. It's the only relocation that makes sense. l.a. already has history with the rams. Jeff Fisher is a USC alum, and finally the rams don't even change divisions. Another San Francisco- l.a. rivalry and big bucks for everyone.
Except you of course.

Good. Leave. The amount of Rams fans to Chiefs fans in the state is nearly 10-1. Only those in St. Louis like them. Get them out of our state. There are no rams in Missouri anyways.

As if another team won't be in St. Louis 10 years later.
