It's official for the former St. Louis Rams. They have become the Los Angeles Rams once again as the NFL owners have given a majority vote to the Rams owners for their relocation efforts.
It's DONE. 30 yes, 2 no.— Sam Farmer (@LATimesfarmer) January 13, 2016
And the vote was just 30-2.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 13, 2016
With just two owners voting against the relocation, it was an overwhelming victory for owner Stan Kroenke in his bid to move the team to Los Angeles. The last time the team was known by that name was 1994. Though there is no timeline for the Rams actually transitioning over to their new market or even when they will establish themselves in their new town.
While the team waits for it's new stadium to be build in Inglewood, there are a few existing stadiums that could host the franchise until things are officially ready to move in. The Los Angeles Coliseum appears to be the best and most likely choice for the Rams, but logistics will have to be ironed out when it comes to the team's schedule and the Coliseum's schedule of events all on it's own.
With the scouting combine and the NFL Draft coming in the next few weeks and months, it will be interesting to see exactly where the Rams settle down their main offices to continue scouting and perform prospect visits. Of course, we'll know more about that in the coming weeks as details come out.
It's definitely a heart breaking and exciting day all the same today for fans of the Rams.
