ESPN drills down on the owners' meeting that resulted in the Rams getting the green light to move to LA.  Roger Goodell may prattle on about the sport being all about "values" but make no mistake - it's all about the Benjamins

The Wow Factor

Few could have guessed that the league's return would become so bloody, bitter and, most of all, emblematic of how power in the NFL truly works....

Going into the meeting, most believed Carson had more votes. But one moment, many would later recall, seemed to halt its momentum. Michael Bidwill, president of the Cardinals and a Carson supporter, argued that the NFL doesn't exist just to make rich owners richer. Owners needed to consider what would be best for the league, and ...

Jones cut him off: "When you guys moved the team from St. Louis to Phoenix -- it wasn't about the money?"

As Bidwill tried to answer, Jones moved in for the kill: "You did it for the money."
