Here is Georgia Scalping SB14 tickets.

UPDATE!!!!!! Georgia will have her an armband and a few tributes at Ram home games. Something CR SHOULD OF HAD.

Condolences to the Frontiere and Rosenbloom families


The 1973 to 1978 Los Angeles Rams media guide has Georgia's name mentioned in it only once.

It would say "CR is married to the beautiful Georgia".

That's it.

In the 1979 Ram media guide there is 3 full pages about Georgia

How she is a poet, singer, is a 2 handicap from the men's tee

How it was CR and her as the brain trust behind the Rams



You have these fans that want concrete evidence georgia was involved in the ticket scalping.

Dominic Frontiere was living in the bel air mansion. Georgia states under oath she gave him 2500 tickets.

She said she thought dominic was going to give them away.

2500 tickets.

You can't be that ignorant and believe over dinner 2500 tickets wouldn't come up.

One more thing ignorance is no excuse.

Isn't it funny with some "ramfans" that give georgia a clean ride.

When things go good she is in charge.

When they go bad she didn't know about it.

Any fucking inbred with an ounce of common sense knows she is responsible.

She owns the fucking team...


April 2nd, 1979 CR "drowns" in the atlantic ocean.

Georgia was shopping. When she got back and was told her husband is dead her FIRST call was to the Attorney about the Will.

Not family but to the attorney.

She is over an hour late to her husbands funeral.

Wanted to sing at the funeral but talked out of it.

Within 5 weeks every office worker (many who have been with CR for over 20 years)is fired.

Within 6 weeks of CR's death, Dominic Frontiere moves into the Bel Air mansion.

Within 9 weeks CR's son is fired.

When the Rams make the Super Bowl in 1979 no tribute for CR. nothing!!!


This webpage is for the fans of Georgia Frontiere. We will keep you up to date and only state facts. Enjoy.

By Doug Krikorian Long Beach Press-Telegram

Well, crime -- err, greed -- does pay.

The Rams, those carpetbaggers from Los Angeles who descended on St. Louis in 1995 when they were able to fleece the city for a public-subsidized stadium, are undisputed champions of the football universe in a development that's an apt reflection of the mercurial financial climate of modern-day America.

By winning the Super Bowl, the Rams assured their lovable caretaker, Georgia Frontiere, a place in the sporting pantheon. She now holds the distinction of being the first female NFL owner to accept the Lombardi Trophy, much to the delight of the good citizens of St. Louis, where this hometown gal has become an overnight icon because of the thrilling heroics of her team.

And, oh, did she take this opportunity to crow. And, oh, did she mock LA in another classic display of her charming nature and sterling grace. "This proves we did the right thing in going to St. Louis," she said.

This former nightclub singer isn't revered in Los Angeles, where she scandalously mismanaged the Rams franchise for so many years and became such a despised figure that she was forced into having her financial guru, John Shaw, go through the ungodly spectacle of hustling her team around the country to the highest bidder among NFL-starved cities.

St. Louis turned out to be the biggest civic spendthrift, and it's ironic that this fine hamlet next to the Mississippi River is in a position to celebrate only because of Frontiere's shameless corporate bungling in Los Angeles and because the Missouri politicians weren't shy about sticking their constituents with taxes that would cover the Rams' expenses.

Ah, those old Rams loyalists in LA would have had a passionate fondness for this Rams team that exorcised so many playoff demons. But these Rams aren't like their failed predecessors.

Georgia Frontiere was bitterly booted out of LA, but that made no difference. She's on top of the world.

And that says a lot about the world in which we reside

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Life isn't fair. Or at least the NFL isn't. With one more victory, Georgia Frontiere and Bud Adams will be in the Super Bowl. That would be like Bonnie & Clyde becoming bankers of the year.

What did Frontiere and Adams steal? Not their teams. Adams had as much right to move his Oilers, now Titans, to Tennessee in 1997 as Frontiere had to move her Rams to St. Louis two years earlier. What they stole was the joy from football fans in Houston and Anaheim that was sapped by inept ownership.

Frontiere and Adams are almost as reviled in their former hometowns as Art Modell is in Cleveland. But at least Modell is a nice guy. Adams once declined to leave his seat to greet Modell when their teams met at the Astrodome. No offense intended, Adams said, but he hadn't yet broken in his new pair of boots.

You know all about Frontiere.

The Super Bowl ticket-scalping scandal that landed husband No. 7, Dominic Frontiere, in prison for tax evasion; the gift of Cabbage Patch dolls to the players after a 51-7 playoff drubbing by the Washington Redskins; the Halloween trade of Eric Dickerson; her appeal to fans to come to games because, "Why shouldn't they suffer with me?"

"What did I do wrong here?" she asked, en route to St. Louis after the Rams had failed to advance to the playoffs for five consecutive seasons in Anaheim.

"She ran that franchise into the ground," Jack Youngblood said.

They were so turned off by him that they don't want the name Oilers for their new team. We can go them one better. We were so turned off by Frontiere that we don't even want a new team.

she ran that team into the ground. that's not me saying that but JACK YOUNGBLOOD.

GREG COUCH She is the former showgirl who climbed the ladder through seven marriages, taking ownership of an NFL team when one rich husband died. She is the one who fired her stepson shortly after, apparently against her late husband's wishes.

She is the star-hugging Los Angeles socialite who arrived late for her husband's funeral, then organized a roast-like wake that included Jonathan Winters telling jokes. And she is the one who tore out the hearts of a city for a new stadium and millions of dollars. But this week has proved one thing about Georgia Frontiere, owner of the St. Louis Rams: She wins.

The Rams will play the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in the Super Bowl. Game, set, match. It's all over.

Frontiere has owned the team for 21 years. Today, that team has a new stadium, a city that loves its heroes, millions in profits and the most exciting product out there.

"The Rams had not done well for 20 years before that," Steve Rosenbloom, the jilted stepson, said Tuesday night. "That's not a good track record.

"But (Rams coach) Dick Vermeil is a guy of great character, and obviously he has control."

Yes, Frontiere is a hands-off owner. She moved the Rams from Los Angeles to St. Louis and gave Vermeil great powers to run the team. But any business professor will say a great leader surrounds himself - or herself - with great people.

The issue with Frontiere, though, is how she got where she is.

"Here's the question I'm phrasing," said Donna Lopiano, executive director of the Women's Sports Foundation. "Who is more idiosyncratic than Ted Turner, George Steinbrenner? But they are given respect because they're men.

"When are we going to get past this? This is a successful business. Give credit where credit is due."

Idiosyncratic? Frontiere's birth certificate says her name was Violet Francis Irwin. That name was scratched out years later with the name Georgia Lee scribbled in.

In Los Angeles, she pronounced her name Fron-tee-air-a, but since arriving in St. Louis in 1995, it is Fron-teer. "It's easier," she said. Late on a stadium payment in Anaheim, Calif., before moving the team, she told the Los Angeles Times, "I don't sign checks when Mercury is in retrograde."

The Rams' media guide in 1979, the year she took over, listed her as 42 years old. She was 51. When the Rams lost a playoff game 51- 7, she gave her players Cabbage Patch dolls.

On the other hand, when Frontiere, now 72, walked into St. Louis' trendy Tony's restaurant recently with her usual entourage, she received a standing ovation from the diners. It was the type of moment she lives for, as she once told Sports Illustrated, "Packaging is always the most important thing."

How is she being packaged today? When she was in the public eye in Los Angeles, she was not well-liked. Fans used to fill the stadium with signs begging her to sell the team. Today, she rarely grants interviews. And it is now that her image is growing.

Her marriages started when she was 15, to a Marine she won't identify. She married again at 18, but that husband died in a car accident. In 1949, she married again, then got a job as a $40-a-week chorus girl. When the 10-week show ended, she asked for a divorce, then married her stage manager.

She danced in the Silver Slipper casino chorus in Las Vegas, sang in nightclubs and got a job as a weather forecaster at WPLG-TV in Miami. She married again and divorced again, leaving that marriage to be with good friend Joseph P. Kennedy, father of John F. Kennedy.

That fifth husband was crushed. Ruth Wyler Plaut, who later became his sister-in-law, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "It wasn't until later that we discovered the series of husbands. In retrospect, we figure that's how she got where she is."

Through Kennedy, she met Carroll Rosenbloom, owner of the Baltimore Colts. He eventually would own the Rams. Carroll's son Steve was groomed for years to run the team, starting as a water boy. He learned from Carroll, who lived for one goal.

"When we made decisions," Steve Rosenbloom said, "I'd say, `How about this, Dad?' He'd say, `Well, Steve, let me ask you one question: Will it help us win?' "I'd say, `No, but . . .' And he'd cut in and say, `Not interested.' "

Meanwhile, the Rosenblooms broke into the Hollywood scene. Georgia would sing at family parties. As she told the Post-Dispatch: "Jimmy Stewart used to come play the piano. Ricardo Montalban, Jack Benny, Cary Grant. They were lovely people who were good friends."

Carroll drowned in the Florida surf April 2, 1979, leaving 70 percent of the team to his wife. This is where Frontiere's image troubles began. She arrived an hour late for the funeral, then had the star-studded wake.

"Dad wasn't dead 15 minutes, and she was in her glory," Steve Rosenbloom told the Post-Dispatch four years ago. "The big event was a Hollywood coming-out party."

The will put Steve in charge of running the team. But two games into the exhibition season, Frontiere fired him.

"I was called in, and she had some lawyer do it," Steve said. "They wanted me to quit, and I said, `No, you can fire me.' So that's how that got wrapped up.

"I've never been more pleased to have been fired. I was around that business and in it since I was 12 with my father, with his attitude and his character and his way of running an operation. But the way she wanted me to do things was totally different, and I didn't want any part of it. It was eating me up."

Steve Rosenbloom said his father willed Frontiere the team only to dodge tax laws that would have sent his fortune to the government and possibly cost his family the team. Steve said his father meant for Frontiere to pass the team to him.

Frontiere took her current name with her seventh husband, Dominic Frontiere. The Rams went to the Super Bowl in 1980. But Dominic pleaded guilty to tax evasion in a scandal involving the scalping of Super Bowl tickets. The Frontieres since have divorced.

On Sunday, Carroll Rosenbloom will look down and see his Rams in the Super Bowl. Representing St. Louis. While his son watches from his home in Louisiana. Carroll, Steve said, will be looking only at the field, watching those Rams uniforms play for a championship. He will be smiling. But Steve?

"They may be wearing the same uniform," he said, "but they're strangers to me."


"They deserve each other"
The St. Louis Fans say "leave Georgia alone". When you hear that statement only one question comes to mind. It is "I thought back east schools were superior to the west coast schools. Then why are these fans so dumb and gullible?." This is column two of a demonstration in the use of tables to construct newspaper style columns.
