Thoughts on this? As a Rams fan, I have a bad feeling. MIllz theorized that it could be more to do with negotiations than we'd think, but…I have a bad feeling.The Los Angeles Times reports Rams owner Stan Kroenke recently purchased a 60-acre lot in Inglewood, Cal. that "could potentially be a used for an NFL stadium."
According to reporter Sam Farmer, Kroenke appears to have bought the land late last year. The terms of the Rams' St. Louis lease allow the team to move penalty-free beginning after the 2014 season. In and of itself, the purchase isn't a smoking gun that the Rams are L.A. bound, but it certainly ups the stakes in the team's St. Louis negotiations. Acquiring land is just one in a litany of hurdles any team would have to clear before packing up and heading to Hollywood. Local laws and regulations have made it nearly impossible for a viable stadium deal to emerge. That being said, owning both the team and the necessary land puts Kroenke way ahead of past failed suitors. It's not a good development for fans who want the team to stay in St. Louis.
