Stay home: St. Louis won't make stadium pitch at NFL meeting

SAN DIEGO -- The NFL's point man on Los Angeles says he's decided officials from St. Louis and San Diego who are trying to keep their NFL teams won't make presentations on their stadium plans at the owners meeting next month.

Eric Grubman says he felt the back-and-forth discussion the presentations might spark "usually doesn't happen at league meetings when there are outside presenters, and particularly when we have a full agenda."

Grubman says it's likely the NFL will talk to the cities directly during the next several weeks.

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has proposed a $2 billion stadium in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood. In response, the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders have proposed to jointly build a $1.7 billion stadium in Carson.
