Report: Rams owner has land in LA, team could move

Stan Kroenke, the owner of the St. Louis Rams, purchased a large piece of land in Inglewood, California which could be used as a site of an NFL stadium according to the Los Angeles Times.

Kroenke purchased a 60-acre lot located between the Forum and Hollywood Park. The land previously was owned by Wal-Mart but the superstore could not get public approval. Kroenke is a former Wal-Mart board member and husband of Ann Walton Kroenke, daughter of Wal-Mart co-founder Bud Walton.

The Rams are not commenting on the situation. There has not been a football team in L.A. since the Raiders left after the 1994 season.

While there are a lot of hurdles in addition to land, sooner or later a team figure to land in L.A. but that does not mean it will be the Rams.

The Rams are trying to get the Edward Jones Dome upgraded and suggest the renovation costs could be $700 million. This could simply be a way of getting action started.
