Rams to L.A.?

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke bought 60 acres in the L.A. area. Does this foretell the Rams move back to Cali?

I guess the Notorious BIG won't be the only one singing I'm goin' goin, back back, to Cali Cali. Sports team collector, Stan Kroenke recently bought 60 acres of land in the Los Angeles area – Inglewood, up to no good, to be exact – according to this report by Nick Wagoner over at ESPN.

Wagoner, who also cites the L.A. Times and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, states that the 60-acres tract of land is located between the old Forum – where the Lakers used to play – and the Hollywood Park racing tracks. This land could be used to build a potential NFL stadium for the Rams.

As previously reported before, the St. Louis Rams and the city of St. Louis have been at different ends when it comes to the current lease at the Edward Jones Dome. There have been mediated talks between the city and the team, but no agreement has been reached.

Stan has made his fortune through land development and such. This could just be Stan doing what he does – developing land. Or, it could be Stan buying some land to build a stadium, and then moving the Rams back to the L.A. area. Los Angeles hasn't had a team since both the Raiders and the Rams left, back in 1995 – when I was five years old.

Quite frankly, as a L.A. area based Rams fan, I'm pretty excited by this news. It would be great if I were able to see my team play live every weekend. But as mentioned above, this is also what Kroenke does as his day job. We'll see what this all amounts to.
