The St. Louis Rams have seemed like a team in transition throughout their entire history. The franchise started as the Cleveland Rams in 1937 before moving to Los Angeles in 1946. They remained the Los Angeles Rams until 1995 when they relocated to the city of St. Louis. Fast forward to 2015 and the St. Louis Rams are debating a move back to the city of Los Angeles. Could 2015 be their last season playing St. Louis? Or will a team like the San Diego Chargers move to Los Angeles instead of the Rams?
On the field the Rams have been an average NFL team. They have made multiple Super Bowl appearances, but have only one title to show for it (1999 season). Since the “glory years” of the late 1990s/early 2000s, the Rams have suffered through numerous losing seasons.
With the multiple relocations throughout team history, the Rams have played their home games at numerous stadiums. In Cleveland, they played at Cleveland Municipal Stadium, League Park and Shaw Stadium. In Los Angeles, they played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Anaheim Stadium. In St. Louis, they have played at the Edward Jones Dome. The Edward Jones Dome is a 70,000 seat domed stadium located in downtown St. Louis. The stadium is a multipurpose arena capable of hosting concerts, conferences, soccer matches, basketball and football games.
