In effort to win St. Louis lawsuit, NFL disavows its relocation guidelines

Aug 27, 2021

When it comes to the lawsuit filed against the NFL in the aftermath of the relocation of the Rams from St. Louis, the NFL is arguing (among other things) that the relocation guidelines can be ignored whenever the owners feel like doing so.

And so the league is disavowing the relocation guidelines as to the departure of the Rams from St. Louis. Years earlier, the league adopted the relocation guidelines as a tool for preventing teams that it doesn’t want to move from moving.

The NFL’s lawyers made that argument in court this week, via TheAthletic.com.
