PostSubject: Rams pull out of 2 International series games at Wembley   Mon Aug 13 2012, 20:17

So much for the St. Louis Rams becoming a regular visitor to London.

In a surprise move, the team announced Monday it is withdrawing its commitment to play overseas in 2013 and 2014.

"In an effort to focus on the Edward Jones Dome First Tier Process with the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, the St. Louis Rams are withdrawing their commitment to play a home game in London in each of the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

"The St. Louis Rams will play the New England Patriots on Sunday, October 28, 2012 at London's historic Wembley Stadium as previously announced."

Rams Executive VP and COO Kevin Demoff said that the team "worked closely" with the NFL in making the decision and remain "key supporters" of the international series.

The "First Tier Process" the statement refers to concerns a piece of the Rams' lease. The Rams and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission have to make the Edward Jones Dome a "First Tier" stadium or the team can leave the lease after 2014.

This news comes as a disappointment to the NFL's efforts to expand the games overseas. It's unclear if another team will replace the Rams by committing to multiple games in London.
