What happens following the Rams arbitration victory over the Dome?

Does the St. Louis Rams arbitration victory over the Edward Jones Dome lease mean the team will leave town? Not necessarily.

The Convention and Visitors Commission has until mid-April to respond to the ruling. The Rams could then begin negotiating for new stadiums and new cities. But officials say that doesn't mean they'll leave St. Louis.

This isn't the first time the Rams and the CVC have dealt with the "first-tier" issue. The lease actually required that the dome be one of the top eight NFL facilities in 2005. After four-years of negotiating, the Rams eventually waived the first-tier requirement in exchange for $30-million in improvements that included new turf and scoreboards.

CVC officials have said they don't plan to ask taxpayers for the $700 million renovation the Rams proposed, so building a new stadium will likely be the new focus.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that possible sites for a new football stadium include the shuttered Chrysler plant in Fenton, farmland in Maryland Heights, or the mostly-vacant Bottle District north of downtown.

Rams officials aren't commenting.
