St. Louis Rams Owner Buys Land in Los Angeles: St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has purchased 60 acres of parking lot in Los Angeles between the Hollywood Park Racetrack and the Forum, reviving chatter about the NFL returning to town. Hey, Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, isn't he just doing this to extort more money from the taxpayers of St. Louis? "Yes, he wants the city and state to make a more competitive offer to keep the Rams. The sides are now $600 million apart on their bid and ask. But Kroenke isn't bluffing, either. He loves LA, and a stadium in that area was already approved for Davis before he moved the Raiders in 1994. This is no joke."
