The St. Louis Rams are canceling a series of events for fans and season ticket holders, including the popular Fan Fest held in August and the Cheer for a Cure breast cancer awareness fundraiser held in October, sources confirmed Thursday.
Rams staffers were recently notified that the activities were canceled via internal memo on Feb. 12. The team is not expected to officially announce that the events are canceled, opting instead to move Cory Harkey Youth Jersey forward with a reduced promotional schedule.
The Rams have not responded to SB Nation’s request for comment.
Fan engagement has been an important part of the team’s marketing efforts in recent years, with an increasing number of events added to the calendar. One of the more popular events, Fan Fest, began in 2012. Free and open to the public, it’s centered on the team’s intrasquad training camp scrimmage that includes an autograph session with players afterward and other activities. Last year’s Fan Fest drew more than 15,000 fans.
Harvin was traded to the Jets from the Seattle Seahawks in October, yet was far from impressive in his eight-game audition with the team. He caught 29 passes for 350 yards and one touchdown, and added 110 yards on the ground. Harvin is signed through 2018 with a cap charge of $10.5 million for next season. All of that money is in his base salary, so the Jets would save $10.5 million against the salary cap in 2015 if they release Harvin this winter.
So when League Official 2 came in, he tried to replace that football, League Official 1 Coty Sensabaugh Youth Jersey noticed the ball was missing, noticed that people knew, he brought the ball back into the game. So there were then two different league officials handing balls to Jim McNally for use in the game. And so it sounds like a very unique, murky, cloudy situation.
Peterson has three more seasons left on the seven-year, $96 million contract he signed with the Vikings in 2011.
