Just buy another team. Yeah, I'm sure it's that easy.

Especially when neither the Raiders or Chargers owners were selling, and such purchases have to be approved by the current owners.


He was already in the ownership group of the Rams. It was his team.



Frankly, the Rams should've never left LA. That just never should've happened.

But where were they gonna play the last 20 years? The Rose Bowl? The Coliseum? The Angels' Stadium? They had no choice.

The Raiders and Chargers had a bogus Carson stadium plan that they couldn't have paid for.

Only Kroenke had the money to get a new LA stadium built and financed, so he had the leverage. The NFL's only alternatives for LA were (a) Kroenke goes to LA, or (b) No NFL in LA.

Vegas was always going to get the Raiders once Nevada put $750 million in tax money on the table. No way the NFL was going to walk away from that, because it sets a new dollar figure that NFL teams can now use to extort more money from local governments.

Good. I don't want NFL team owners building private stadiums.

I want public facilities, built by and for the people. NFL just rents out the facility 8-11 times a year, anyway.

I pray they at least know what to do with these stadiums once they're done serving pro sports. The Astrodome is a joke right now.

I read that someone wants to designate the Astrodome as a historic landmark and keep it there forever.

Well whatever they do, they need to do something to it. It's like that car sitting in the driveway that never gets used as it sits next to Reliant/NRG.

I wish they had made the silverdome into a driving range of sorts, historic places like these could be nostalgia hotspots for other uses.

The formerly named Edward Jones Dome is connected to the big convention center in St. Louis and is involved for a decent number of events there, so it'll be used for the foreseeable future. We're seeing the Qualcomm drama play out in San Diego right now, who knows how that'll end up. Oakland has been tossing out renovation ideas for the Coliseum now that the Raiders are gone and the Warriors have one foot out the door across the bay, but in case the A's leave there for a different stadium site it's difficult to see it sticking around for much longer. Land in that area is so expensive that even in a dumpy part of town like that it'll get turned into something at some point.
