Rams owner buys stadium sized lot in Los Angeles

Rotoworld-

"The Los Angeles Times reports Rams owner Stan Kroenke 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 owned the land since at least late 2012. 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."

The Rams moving back to LA would be interesting.
I really hope they move back. We're SF and our big rival should always be in LA.
Welp, no more jrg then

Yup. Plus it's an easy trip to see the Niners on the road.
He's bluffing so they upgrade the dome to potentially host a Superbowl. It's a nice trump card to have though.
Make it happen, 49ers can be only a 2 hour flight away from every team in the division.
St.Louis will have to call or fold.
He'll yea!! LA is only a 2 hour drive for me. Lol there would be more niner fans there than rams fans

So if you live in LA and want to support a team, bad luck there is no team. Lol Strange that a major US city has no football team.
