Updated to correct date of arbitrators' action, and again at 4:45 p.m. to include official letter.
The discussions between the St. Louis Rams and the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission over the Rams' place of play, the Edward Jones Dome, have come to a crossroads - one that may leave St. Louis without an NFL team after the 2014 season.
Updated 5:29 p.m. with comment from the CVC and addition of full arbitrators' report.
According to the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, arbitrators have chosen the plan put forth by the St. Louis Rams for the revamping of the stadium in which they play, the Edward Jones Dome.
A panel of arbitrators in St. Louis is now weighing the future of the St. Louis Rams and the Edward Jones Dome.
The team and the owners of the dome, the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, agreed to arbitration over plans to renovate the dome. The lease agreement requires the dome to be among the top quarter of all NFL stadiums by 2015 or the Rams can break the lease, raising concern they could leave St. Louis.
