The St. Louis Rams owner is very committed to the Los Angeles area, but the Rams and their fan base are not too committed. According to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis stadium task force co-chair Dave Peacock suggested that the Rams might need a new owner. Could the Stan Kroenke be willing to sell the Rams and pursue a new team in Los Angeles where he is building a stadium?
“It’s possible we have different ownership of the [Rams] because I think [Kroenke] is really committed to Los Angeles,” Peacock said at a Commercial Real Estate Women of St. Louis breakfast. “I’m not against Stan going to Los Angeles, I just don’t want our team there. This is why we’re spending most of our time with the league — we think this is an NFL issue.”
I am sure the Rams fans wouldn’t mind this, but how would that work? Would we need another expansion team? How would Kroenke make this happen?
