“It was great to see Mr. [Stan] Kroenke come in, talk to the team,” Rams running back Steven Jackson told long-time NFL writer Jim Thomas in today’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Talk to us about how he’s excited about taking over the ownership. He’s in it for the long haul. He’s been a part of the Rams’ organization for quite some time, and he just wanted to reassure us that he’s a big supporter.”
NFL owners voted 32-0 on Wednesday to approve Kroenke (right) as the team’s new majority owner. “For Rams veterans, the pending sale of the team has loomed in the background for the past couple of years,” Thomas writes. “Having closure on the sale had to be reassuring. And so was the sight of their new majority owner in Foxborough, Mass., with Kroenke speaking to the team before and after the Patriots game.”
Said Patriots owner Robert Kraft, “He’s going to be great for the fans of St. Louis. He wants to win, and he’s passionate about it. And he’s just a high-quality guy. We’re all very happy that we have him in the room with us as a partner.”
