St. Louis Rams won’t have to worry about Stan Kroenke moving his football team so it plays in the same town as his baseball team.
That’s because Kroenke’s bid to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers has fallen short. Kroenke was one of three finalists to buy the team but it was announced this morning that a group including Magic Johnson has been selected with a bid of $2 billion, according to the Los Angeles Times.
So, Kroenke will not have to navigate his way through cross-ownership rules in the NFL. He also won’t be building an NFL stadium at the site of Dodger Stadium. But this doesn’t mean there isn’t a chance Kroenke moves the Rams, particularly if his stadium desires in St. Louis are not met. Of course, one possible destination could be Los Angeles.
