Rams to be Sold to Central Illinois Buyer

Great News for St. Louis Rams Fans Today

Chip Rosenbloom and his sister have agreed to sell their 60% share of the team to Shahid Khan. Khan the owner of the Urbana company Flex-N-Gate Corporation. Sources say that he may also be interested in buying Stan Kroenke’s minority 40% share.

Khan is described as a avid Rams fan who has attends many games. And better yet, he is determined to keep the team in St. Louis.

The sale must stillĀ  be approved by the NFL but if this goes through then it is great news for Rams fans and the city of St. Louis. There is reason to have some concern about the sale not being approved. It’s been reported that Khan has been accused by the IRS of sheltering millions from from income tax. Last year he and his wife paid$68million in back taxes but are determined to fight the charges and regain their money. Additionally, people are going to bring up race. Race should not be a factor but you just never know. Hopefully the NFL owners will not act like good ole boys and keep Kahn out of their club just because he comes from a different background than them. I really don’t think his ethnicity will keep him out of the NFL but people are going to talk about the subject.

Kahn, has the financial resources to be an owner plus he’s a football fan. I believe that he’ll be a great addition to the NFL. Rosenbloom and his sister Lucia Rodriguez deserve a lot of credit for sticking to their word and selecting a buyer that has no intentions on moving the team. Hopefully, the “move the team to LA” trolls that seem to find their way on to every Rams message board will now go away.
