The Los Angeles Rams came crashing back down to Earth after an impressive 3-1 start to the season. However, aside from their Week 1 debacle against the San Francisco 49ers, the Rams bounced back nicely and have remained competitive in each game since.
So far that competitiveness has sat nicely with team owner, Stan Kroenke. Although Los Angeles is still working through their fair share of on-field issues, the enigmatic owner is pleased with the direction his team is headed in according to Alden Gonzalez of ESPN:
“We’re young,” Kroenke said. “I think it’s the fifth year in a row we’re the youngest team in the NFL. We’ve been building this team.”
It is no secret this team is chalk-full of talent with players like Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley. However, Kroenke was right on the dot when he said the Rams are the youngest team for the fifth year in a row.
Kroenke is anxious the youth will pay huge dividends for years to come when the Rams finish constructing the Taj Mahal of football stadiums in Inglewood. Along with the stadium, it will include residential space, hotel, and office space, and a number of parks and playgrounds:
“We’re building a small city to the centerpiece of which is a great, big stadium.”
“Silent Stan”, as he is often referred to, has expressed his desire to build the Rams brand into a household name. With the Rams already scheduled to play in London and China over the next few seasons, Kroenke could be well on his way to seeing his desires come to fruition.
