    Stan Kroenke begins backing away from relocation indemnity agreement

    Posted by Mike Florio

    St. Louis may be moving closer to a potential expansion team, if it wants one.

    Earlier this month, we outlined the factors that could result in the league throwing up its hands and accepting defeat in the Rams relocation litigation. One key ingredient to that specific outcome will be Rams owner Stan Kroenke successfully reneging on his promise to foot the full bill for the lawsuit and judgment, if any.

    - clip -

    Kroenke reportedly blames the current legal issues on the competing proposal to build a Carson stadium for the Raiders and Chargers. The Carson proposal supposedly outlined the various ways that allowing the Rams to move to Inglewood would violate the terms of the league’s relocation policy. Kroenke believes that proposal provided a blueprint for the St. Louis suit.

    ESPN Article :

    a source close to kroenke says now that the rams owner believes that some of the legal issues arise from that email, and that after building the stadium and agreeing to house the chargers as a tenant for $1 a year, he shouldn't be responsible for all legal fees.

    Jones and pash had a brief back and forth, and then jones asked pash if kroenke had tried to settle the lawsuit.

    Pash replied that he had, sources told espn. Jones indicated that kroenke's settlement figure was billions of dollars. Pash refused to confirm the figure -- a source with direct knowledge of the situation told espn it was less than a billion -- but told those in the meeting that it was more than the net worth of some in the room.
    Jones spoke and reminded his colleagues that Kroenke has been a good partner, engineering the league's return to Los Angeles after 22 years away and building a stadium that some involved in its construction refer to as "our $6 billion stadium."

    Next came Kraft, who sources said seemed to speak for many in the room that Kroenke's position was unfair. He mentioned all the legal hassle that he had gone through. In 2016, he had served on a six-person LA committee. He argued that if providing financial records as a result of lawsuits would be a consequence of serving on league committees, it would dissuade other owners from wanting to be on committees and making consequential decisions for the league.

    Raiders owner Mark Davis reminded the room that, in 2016, the LA committee recommended a rival Raiders-Chargers stadium project in Carson, California, by a 5-1 vote over Kroenke's project in Inglewood.

    Mara spoke next and said Kroenke's change in position was ridiculous, and that if Kroenke had not agreed to indemnify the league, the owners wouldn't have voted for him to move. He said anyone who was in the room in Houston when the vote was taken would know that.

    Mark Davis was the one owner that gave the testimony, as payback the league leaked snippets of those Gruden emails. Now Davis calls for release of the Washington Redskins investigation. This is all intertwined, don’t think it isn’t for a second. Mark is making dad proud and keeping us all entertained.
    yaaaaas

        I'm not sure there is much of an appetite for NFL football in St. Louis at this point.....They've been left twice and seem pretty happy to have a prime MLB franchise and the NHL Blues. I think the City would rather have the money....and I don't thinkthe NFL wants to add more domestic teams (or international right now either)

            It’s def not a good look. In the end chargers and Rams in one city is terrible.

          St. Louis never deserved the Rams in the first place. Really bad football town.

            It's beyond insane. I am curious to see if the NFL ever comes near St Louis ever again. They had multiple chances to provide a new stadium for the Rams.

              Wouldn’t shock me if they get an expansion franchise. Eventually the NFL will stupidly expand to 34-36 teams, probably with two teams in the UK.

                They should just push for as much money as possible but I expect the promise of priority for the next expansion franchise will get the NFL out of this.
