More stadium smoke: Are the St. Louis Raiders a possibility?

Being that I live in San Diego, there is not a lot of coverage about the latest and greatest as it pertains to the Oakland Raiders. It would seem that the joint statement released by both clubs about sharing a stadium in LA really caught the fan bases off guard. Immediately after hearing that the Raiders and the San Diego Chargers had put forth a joint proposal for a $1.7 billion...

The big allure of the proposed St. Louis riverfront stadium? It’s outside!

For me, the people of St. Louis are hung up on two very negative things when it comes to the city’s potential investment in an open-air NFL stadium to be located on the west bank of the Mississippi River. Those things are Stan Kroenke’s presence, followed by the tiny fact that the team hasn’t finished above .500 since The Darkness believed in a thing called love. And while...

Dear Saint Lous, please let the Rams move to Los Angeles

I am not often a proponent of teams being relocated. Even those teams with poor attendance have die hard fans, and I hate to see teams wrested from them. In this case, however, I need to ask fans of the Rams to recognize that, indeed it is they who need to fall on this grenade. The Rams’ owner, Stan Kroenke is actually offering to build a stadium in Los Angeles. Not “split money...

Does Los Angeles deserve an NFL team?

The gold rush is back in California. Three teams in the National Football League are madly rushing toward Los Angeles, hoping to get a piece of the second-largest American city. On the surface, it seems ludicrous the NFL has been without a franchise in a market like Los Angeles. When you dig deeper, it begins to make sense. On Thursday, the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders...

Crazy scenario could see the Oakland Raiders in St. Louis

Jason Whitney It’s no secret that the NFL wants a team in Los Angeles and the two teams that appear to be a possibility for the move are the Oakland Raiders or St. Louis Rams.

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke fares only so-so in Power Rankings

In any business, success or failure tends to trickle down from the top. This is certainly the case in the National Football League. Teams with solid ownership are the ones that inevitably compete for championships year in and year out, while franchises with less stable structures at the top are typically mired in mediocrity or stuck in the cellar. That’s what makes cover32′s...

Top 5 ways to remove Stan Kroenke as the St. Louis Rams owner

Much has been written about Stan Kroenke over the past few months – mainly that he’s a villainous Mr. Burns-type recluse who doesn’t give a **** about St. Louis despite what he said back in 2010. Kroenke clearly has his sights set on Los Angeles and would like to move his St. Louis Rams franchise to sunny California as soon as he can. The NFL certainly doesn’t seem too interested...
