Shahid Kahn has reached an agreement to buy the St. Louis Rams.
Any thoughts on this move? Is this what the franchise needed?

I like the move because Kahn is tied down to the area. However, Im still a little dissapointed Checketts' group didn't get it. I like what Checketts has done with the Blues and believe he could brought to life a dead franchise. However, Kahn is loaded, so all we can do now is the waiting game.
The St.Louis Rams is not a dead franchise in my opinion,just not Super Bowl contenders.People always jump ship when things aren't bright.The "Greatest Show On Turf" is long gone,but things tend to play out better down the road.For example the Chicago Bulls haven't won a NBA title since Air Jordan,but a new dynasty is in the making.The New England Patriots seemed to be unstoppable at one point,but now they are a decent team,soon they may find another element to add to their chemistry.In the Rams case,they need several elements to mix in their chemistry,it just hasn't happened yet.Oh,and spending bookoos of money want fix it!!!!Any one can own a team,but wins are made by a roster of hungry men,from little league to the pros,money and white collars are destroying professional sports period!!!
I hope they get Vick!
I am not saying that I have, or had, given up on the team. But in the past 3 years the team had a combined wins total of 6 (3-2007; 2-2008; 1-2009). And in case you haven't noticed the Rams are seriously having trouble getting fans to come out to see them. Who wants to watch a massacre every Sunday afternoon? I would whether just stay home and watch it on TV because, sad to say, the outcome has pretty much been the same the past few years. So yeah, if the franchise isn't dead, which I believe they are not, they were close to it, which they were. As for the point that "money wont fix the Rams problems!!!!" money never hurts. What the Rams need is better college scouting (instead of relying upon what the jokers at ESPN have to say) and pro scouting, which costs money and a good deal of it. So yes while money does help, and it helps a lot, I dont care who are, it all depends on how Mr. Khan spends that money and my money says he will spend it wisely like history has showed. He is a business savy man who does not like failure.
