Demolition of Edward Jones Dome being considered by St. Louis


ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Rams are gone, and the stadium where they played might soon be a thing of the past, too.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports one option being considered for renovation of the city's convention center is tearing down the Edward Jones Dome, home to the Rams from 1995, their first year in St. Louis, through 2015.

In January, NFL owners agreed to allow Stan Kroenke to move the team to Los Angeles, leaving St. Louis without a pro football team.

The dome is part of the St. Louis convention center. Officials there have long cited a need to improve exhibit space, expand the center's ball room and add loading docks and other support facilities. They say the dome as currently configured fails to provide high-quality, contiguous square footage.
