ST. Isaiah Oliver Falcons Jersey . LOUIS - A former Anheuser-Busch executive and a prominent lawyer, both experienced in dealing with the NFL, have been tapped by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to consider options that will ensure the future of pro football in St. Louis.Nixon announced the appointment Wednesday of former A-B president David Peacock and suburban St. Louis attorney Robert Blitz to analyze the troublesome stadium issue that is threatening to send the St. Louis Rams packing, and to present options within 60 days.We are prepared to look at serious options to remain an NFL city, Nixon said.Rams coach Jeff Fisher was staying out of it, saying after practice Wednesday the team needed to prepare for this weeks game at Arizona. Fisher said the issue hadnt been discussed with players.Their focus, as well as the staffs focus, is on Arizona, Fisher said.Fisher had no reaction on a personal level, either.Again, Im focused on the game, OK? Fisher said. Again, Im in no place to comment. Im coaching this team, this teams playing the Cardinals, and thats where we are with that.Most players said they were powerless, that the decision was out of their hands, although one player said, not for attribution: Rams aint going nowhere.Middle linebacker James Laurinaitis said the news was exciting for a phenomenal fan base that deserves a winning football team and a first-class stadium.But we have no say in it, Laurinaitis said. Its a start, but our bigger concern is the Arizona Cardinals. They have one loss.The organization issued a non-committal statement Wednesday night that read, We have spoken with the Governors office and we will meet with the task force.Nixon said Peacock worked directly with the league on advertising and marketing while with A-B, and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame advisory board. Blitz was part of the legal team that helped bring the Rams to St. Louis and is legal counsel to the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority.The Rams moved to St. Louis from Los Angeles in 1995. Early that season, what is now known as the Edward Jones Dome opened. The stadium was built with tax money and is operated by the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.The 30-year lease between the convention commission and the Rams requires that the stadium be among the top quarter of NFL stadiums, and it clearly isnt. As a result, the team can break the lease after this season — and potentially move. Rumours of a return to Los Angeles have swirled.I let the guys upstairs take care of it, guard Rodger Saffold said. This is all I know, St. Louis is all I know, so it doesnt matter whether its here or there I play for the Rams.Negotiations about upgrades began in early 2012. The commission proposed a new glass addition, outdoor terraces and a huge new scoreboard — improvements of less than $200 million. It proposed that the Rams pick up half the cost.The Rams countered with a far more elaborate plan that included a sliding roof, reconfigured seating and other amenities. The Rams didnt estimate the cost, but city officials said it would be at least $700 million. The convention commission informed the Rams last year that the dome would not get the upgrades that the team requested.Recent speculation, including on TV and radio talk shows and in newspaper columns, has focused on a potential new stadium either in the city or St. Louis County.Its not clear how construction of either dome improvements or a new stadium would be funded. One option would be to extend the funding mechanism for the dome. Repayment for the 30-year bonds that financed it will total $720 million. The state of Missouri pays $12 million annually toward that debt; the city and St. Louis County pay $6 million each.We have funding streams that folks have gotten very used to, Nixon said.Michael Rathbone, policy researcher for the St. Louis-based think-tank Show-Me Institute, said additional public funding would be a mistake.Theres no justification on an economic basis to do so, Rathbone said. It wouldnt generate any economic benefit either through personal income growth or job creation.Nixon said the economic impact of having an NFL team extends long beyond Sunday afternoon, and sends a clear signal that this city is a worldwide player. He said the 60-day deadline for the analysis is important because he wants to communicate options to the Rams before Jan. 28 — the deadline the team set to provide notice of their intent to convert the dome lease to year to year.___Salter reported from Kansas City, Missouri.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Deadrin Senat Jersey .

He lined a game-breaking double. He worked out a key walk. And he ran through a stop sign to score the first run. Now that truly is a complete game. Niese threw a three-hitter and drove in three runs as the New York Mets put aside a devastating injury and a surprising trade, beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 Tuesday night to end a five-game losing streak. "It was an overall great win for us," Niese said. Thanks to a great overall effort by him. "One-man show by Niese," Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Pretty stress-free." Niese struck out five and walked one in his second career shutout in 112 major league starts. The Mets took advantage of several poor throws to win several hours after trading veterans Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. It was Byrd T-shirt giveaway night at Citi Field. Minus the teams RBIs leader, Niese (6-6) handled matters at the plate and on the mound. Good timing, considering ace Matt Harvey was diagnosed this week with a partial tear in his elbow. "They want to pick each other up," Mets manager Terry Collins said. Niese retired 17 straight batters and scored the first run by running through third base coach Tim Teufels late stop sign. "I had my mind made up," Niese said. Niese improved to 3-0 in four starts since coming off the disabled list because of a partially torn rotator cuff. "Its kind of rewarding to know Im 100 per cent now," he said. After Michael Young led off the second inning with a single, the left-hander didnt permit another runner until Young doubled to begin the eighth. Nieses other shutout came in 2010. He popped his left hand into his mitt after Chase Utley flied out to finish this one on his 113th pitch. Niese pitched his third career complete game. He also became the first Mets pitcher to drive in at least three runs since Al Leiter in 1999. Asked whether he was more proud of pitching or hitting, Niese said: "t;Both.

Then again, neither team had a player in the starting lineup batting above .276. Pitching a day after his 29th birthday, Kyle Kendrick (10-11) went six innings and allowed five runs, only one of them earned. He made a wild pickoff toss to second base, too. Kendrick had won all three of his starts against the Mets this year. But he hasnt done well lately overall, going 1-5 in his last seven starts. Niese toted a .162 career average to the batters box in the third and earned a one-out walk on a 3-2 pitch. He moved up on a bunt by Eric Young Jr. and then took off on Daniel Murphys single, easily beating an off-target throw home by right fielder John Mayberry Jr. A wild throw by first baseman Kevin Frandsen helped the Mets load the bases in a four-run sixth. Travis dArnaud lofted a fly to medium-shallow centre field, and Andrew Brown scored without a problem on Roger Bernadinas weak throw home. Niese came up with two outs after an intentional walk and lined a bases-loaded double to the gap in left-centre field. The three RBIs on that hit matched his combined total from the past three years. "He just got lucky," Kendrick said. NOTES: Phillies OF Domonic Brown was out with a sore right heel. He hasnt started since being pulled from Saturdays game. Sandberg said Brown "still feels it" but "seems to be getting better." ... The Mets said RHP Jeremy Hefner will soon have Tommy John surgery. He got a second opinion from noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews before making the decision. ... Phillies LHP Cole Hamels (5-13, 3.62) starts Wednesday night vs. Mets RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka, hit hard by Detroit on Friday in his season debut. ... Kendrick made his 150th career start and is 64-53. He has not pitched past the sixth inning in his last eight starts. ... The Phillies were shut out for the 13th time; only Miami with 15 has been blanked more.
