    Stan has been a familiar and respected figure in the National Football League for more than 15 years, said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. He is a proven businessman and has experienced success in all of his sports franchises, as well as serving as a responsible com-munity leader. We look forward to him continuing to uphold the goals and values of the NFL as he becomes the majority owner of the St. LouisRams.

    Prior to becoming the majority owner of the Rams, Kroenke was the minority owner of the team. He was vital in the effort to bring professionalootball back to St. Louis in 1995. With his real estate development expertise, Kroenke was instrumental in the building of Rams Park, now

    nown as the Russell Training Center.We are delighted with todays vote by NFL owners. It is one of the very high points of our long association with the NFL, Kroenke said last

    Wednesday. We look forward to working with our fellow owners and Commissioner Goodell as the transaction is finalized and in the yearshead.

    The Rosenbloom family deserves our thanks for all their efforts on behalf of a great football organization and a great city.

    Building organizations that win consistently is a challenge that we understand. We are excited about the opportunity as principal owner of thet. Louis Rams.

    Fifteen years ago, my family entered a partnership with Stan Kroenke and it has been a wonderful relationship, said Chip Rosenbloom.Although today is an emotional day and the end of an era for our family, it is also the beginning of a new chapter in the rich history of the St.

    Louis Rams. We look forward to Stan continuing the great tradition of the organization. On behalf of my sister Lucia and our entire family, weongratulate Stan and the Kroenke family on becoming the majority owner of the Rams.
