The NFL's finance committee gave the big O.K to Kroenke taking over things after he agreed to give his stake in the Colorado Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets to his son Josh.
Here are the basics on the story from KMOX.com RIGHT HERE
A little more detail from KSDK-TV RIGHT HERE
It's interesting that Kroenke finally will be getting ownership of the team. Despite some consternation from the folks in St.Louis that the team could be a candidate for relocation back to Los Angeles, we don't see that happening.
Though Kroenke's other team holdings are in Denver, remember this. Back in 1994, when the NFL was going through the last round of expansion, Kroenke tried to step in and push the heavily favored St. Louis bid forward and very nearly walked away with the team. Having been at the aforementioned meeting, I can tell you he was close enough to getting it that there were t-shirts printed, I saw them.
Anyway, enough of my old war stories from TV...here is more on what happened today. Thanks fox2now.com:
