The St. Louis Rams have a lot going on, with the top pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, and now part-owner Stan Kroenke, who is a billionaire from Missouri, wants to purchase the last 60 percent of the organization.

Kroenke made his intentions public on Monday, which was the last day that he could make the decision and decide whether or not to proceed forward.

Currently, Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez own that percentage of the team, and Kroenke had a 60-day period for which to make up his mind.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

The announcement came unexpectedly.

“We are pleased to announce that we have exercised our right to purchase the remaining interest in the St. Louis Rams football team under the terms of our Partnership Agreement,” Kroenke stated. “We have enjoyed our involvement in the National Football League since our original expansion efforts beginning in 1993 and our subsequent 15-year partnership with the Rams.

“We look forward to working with the Rosenbloom family and the NFL. We will respect the league and its processes in our efforts to complete this transaction,” Kroenke remarked.

Rosenbloom did not have many extended comments beyond what was announced by Kroenke.

“We and our advisers will work with the National Football League as we move forward with the objective of completing a transaction for the sale of our interest in the Rams,” Rosenbloom stated.

On the field, the Rams have been at the bottom of the league, tabbing a 1-15 record last season and generating only six wins to 42 losses over the last three years.

With the top pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Rams are expected to select Sam Bradford, the quarterback out of Oklahoma, however the staff has kept mum on the issue despite analysts believing to to be a foregone conclusion.

The attendance at the Edward Jones Dome has also been at record lows and has only gone downhill as the play on the field got worse and worse.

St. Louis has already seen one team pack up and leave town, in the Arizona Cardinals, and potentially face another move if things do not improve in the near future.

Online Sportsbooks have the Rams as one of the least favored teams to compete for Super Bowl XLV, currently going off at 100/1.
