Billion dollar settlement? Woo. Good for St.Louis, I guess. They did deserve better, especially with the Rams finally having pulled their shit together there, getting it done in '99. Best show in the NFL at the time, heading into the new millennium, they really had it going at a peak moment. Of course, ultimately, they'd go on to blow that opportunity..not that it was Kroenke's fault with him not owning the team at the time, but it was a hell of an opportunity. And then the sale of a NFL team generally reflects weakness in a brand, so 10 years later they'd hit rock bottom in relevance. Credit Kroenke for seizing the opportunity and even trying to resettle in a fickle LA market. Chances of the Rams failing in LA are probably 50/50 or 60/40, but you take those odds if you have as much scratch as Kroenke/Walton. A worthwhile gamble. As for the RAIDERS not landing in LA, yeah, it really is L.A.'s loss. But I mean, beyond the bad feelings about Al, they couldn't allow their guest to outdraw them in Inglewood, so the Chargers were the only play. Like Mayweather avoiding Pacquiao for years, that wasn't a fight Kroenke needed or wanted. Go fight Maidana/Chargers. Of course, as mentioned, the RAIDERS are still in Kroenke's backyard, but at least the fuckery won't be happening under the same roof. At the very least, SoFi Stadium can serve as a nice monument for LA football fans to swing around and check out before heading for Vegas. At the most, Rams cash in on the Dodgers' failure and slide in behind the Lakers. Think Inglewood/Rams will serve a purpose either way. Although, if the Clippers win big on their way to Inglewood it could serve as another hurdle to clear. Ballmer is arguably the best owner in LA right now.
