Do NFL teams matter?

Twenty years ago, St. Louis had the nice new indoor stadium and lured the Rams from Los Angeles.
Today, that dome isn't among the best.
The team wants a new home, and eyes a return to Los Angeles without a new deal.
St. Louis spent tons of money and prestige to get back in the NFL after the Cardinals left in 1988.
The dome they built hosted a Super Bowl championship season and several big basketball tournaments.
Some economists doubt sports teams bring that much positive impact.
Then why is Los Angeles spending so much to lure the Rams back?
