One of the most exclusive clubs in Amercian sports added a 32nd member on Wednesday in Stan Kroenke, new majority owner of the St. Louis Rams.
The man that Kroenke outflanked for the job, Shalid Khan, was gracious upon learning the news.
“I have nothing but best wishes for Stan Kroenke as the new controlling owner of the St. Louis Rams,” Khan said in a statement. “I have gotten to know Stan very well this year, I admire his success and I am certain he will be an excellent owner for the Rams, the National Football League and the St. Louis community.
“I’ll always appreciate the trust Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez put in me, and I thank Commissioner Roger Goodell and team owners for their professional approach in everything related to the sale process. This adventure didn’t turn out the way I had hoped, but it was otherwise a worthwhile experience in every respect and I’ll always be a fan of the St. Louis Rams.”
Kroenke responded by sending Khan an email detailing all the team’s available luxury boxes.
