Could the Rams be making a shock return to Los Angeles just over twenty years after they left for St. Louis?

Well the actions of franchise owner Stan Kroenke have certainly fuelled rumors supporting the possibility.

The LA Times reported this week that one of the companies Kroenke has connections with bought up 60-acres of land in the Inglewood area of the city.

Plenty of room for a new stadium?

And with the Rams current 30-year stadium lease in St. Louis having an optional buyout in 2014, this has sparked rumours that the owner could be planning a sensational return for the franchise.

However, even if Kroenke was keen on another relocation for the Rams he still faces a number of issues before a move could take place.

He would have to file a transfer application with the NFL, and 24 of the league's owners would have to approve any move. 

Commissioner Goodell spoke today about the rumors:

"Stan is a very large developer on a global basis. He has land throughout the country and throughout the world," he told reporters.

And he is right. Perhaps this purchase is little more than a business venture for the tycoon. 

He was also keen to reassure St. Louis fans:

"what's necessary (is) to continue to support the fans locally, which the fans in St. Louis have done, and make sure we can do whatever we can to make sure that team is successful in the St. Louis market."

What do you think? Could the Rams ever return to LA?
