Owner Stan Kroenke took the decision to move the team to Los Angeles
Fans in St. Louis got the chance to see a few of their most iconic players take to the field in the team colours for one last time before the franchise ups and moves to Los Angeles.
In a special event, dubbed the "Legends of the Dome" and organised by former wide receiver Isaac Bruce, stars such as Kurt Warner, along with Bruce himself took to the field of the Edward Jones Dome.
Proceeds from the event went to Jones' charitable foundation, but for some fans, it was the one last opportunity they had to blast owner Stan Kroenke, who is also the largest shareholder in Arsenal Football Club.
The decision to take the team to Los Angeles has not gone down well with local fans for obvious reasons, and they decided to show their distaste for Kroenke both inside and outside the ground.
The move to Los Angeles had been mooted for years, despite the fact that the stadium there had been largely built inorder to lure an NFL franchise to the city.
Heard a loud steady chant of "Kroenke sucks!" while filing out of the Dome today. #LegendsOfTheDome— Robert Cohen (@kodacohen) 24 July 2016
St. Louis, who were known as the 'Greatest Show on Turf' in the early 2000s, will be missed in the city, and more than 10,000 showed up to celebrate the legacy that they left behind.
In a game of flag football, the players showed that their skills haven't left them just yet, including the old duo of Warner and Bruce.
