For several years, LA businessman Ed Roski has been pushing for a stadium in Los Angeles. The goal is to eventually bring a NFL team to the area.
More recently, another group has popped up proposing a LA stadium. The group, led by two businessman, includes a familiar name.
It turns out [Stan] Kroenke is a member of the league's Los Angeles Stadium Working Group committee. Roll that one around in your mind a few minutes. Everyone I mentioned that to Thursday was silent for a few seconds, and then said, "Oh, my God."
The thinking is that Kroenke, who is trying to buy the Rams, would try to bring the Rams to LA.
If Kroenke gains control of the Rams, he's sitting in a very nice place. He can either be the one that brings football back to LA or he can use the LA stadium as leverage for the best possible deal to stay in St. Louis.
