This NFL relocation battle would a page turner if it were a novel. Here in St. Louis we all know the story of Rams owner Stan Kroenke who has won the most despised person of the year as he denigrates this city in his bid to move to LA. If you follow pro football you also know that two other teams want permission to move to LA as well-San Diego and Oakland. A few days ago I found it hardly credible that the owners would choose Kroenke or Oakland over San Diego because both these teams have moved back and forth a couple times already to no real purpose. San Diego has a built in southern California fan base and surely would be the best bet.
However, today I read that the owners have decided this: "The NFL has said it will support only one new stadium in Los Angeles capable of housing two NFL teams, so someone is going to lose this battle."
So it's not just one city vying for LA, it's two? This puts a whole different spin on who will get chosen or left out. You can read the two team stadium, three teams competing story here. It's as convoluted as you might expect. It's just hard for me to believe that Stan Kroenke is any more likeable to NFL owners than he is here in St. Louis.
