Bernie: Rams/NFL people were "pleasantly surprised" by the CVC's proposal.
He made it clear this is still just a starting point, the Rams will almost certainly reject as part of the ongoing negotiation process, etc.
But he said 'people in the know' were impressed by its comprehensiveness.
Also, he said it's not really true that it's going to come on the voters to put up money. He mentioned groups like the CVC, RCGA, and others related to the revenue generated by the Dome and Rams games having stockpiled money for many years now, and that they could pay the 60 million right now.
He made it clear Kroenke will still squeeze the best deal he can and extract every dollar he can, obviously.
But, he said he's comfortable where things are, because of the above reasons.
And you should be too! It's gonna be an interesting year with all of this.
He is NOT predicting success and makes no claims about the endgame. He is entirely unsure if the Rams will be here in three years.
But, it's a good starting point.
