The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports the "word" is that the 2021 Super Bowl will be moved from Los Angeles following the Rams' stadium delay, and that Tampa Bay is the favorite to be the new host.
Most assumed Rams owner Stan Kroenke would be granted a waiver — the NFL has already torn up every other rule for him — but the league apparently doesn't want to risk any mishaps with its big game. Per reporter Jeff McLane, New Orleans is also in the running to host. L.A. will undoubtedly get the big game sometime in the next 10 years. May 23 - 2:18 PM

The opening of the Rams' new stadium in Inglewood, Cal. has been delayed from 2019 to 2020.

The delay has been blamed on "record rainfall" during the "mass excavation phase" of the 70,240-seat stadium. It means the Rams will have to spend at least three more years in the crumbling Coliseum, while the Chargers will be playing in a pint-sized soccer stadium. Stadium construction is never straightforward, particularly in Los Angeles. Owner Stan Kroenke will be 73 when his palace finally opens.

NFL owners have officially approved the Rams' relocation to Inglewood, Cal.

The Rams' relocation bid won by a 30-2 vote. The Chargers have the option to join the Rams in Inglewood but have not made a decision yet. The Raiders have pulled their relocation request and should be compensated handsomely with money to build a new stadium and "favorable consideration" the next time they submit a relocation bid. Money was obviously a huge factor in the owners choosing Inglewood over Carson, but it wasn't the only one. Having the Chargers and Raiders share a stadium in Carson likely would have prompted division and possibly conference realignment, which the owners were not in favor of. The new stadium in Inglewood is expected to open in 2019.

The Rams and Chargers are expected to be approved for relocation to Inglewood, Cal.

Stan Kroenke's project is taking the day, with Dean Spanos and Mark Davis' Carson proposal dissolving as soon as the bargaining began. The expectation is that Davis will receive extra NFL loan money as he seeks a new stadium in Oakland, a development that is sure to gall Rams and Chargers fans. Official word could come as early as Tuesday evening. It's an exciting day for football fans in the nation's second-largest market, but an awful betrayal for San Diego and St. Louis.

The Los Angeles Times reports "a consensus is building" for the Rams and Chargers to share Stan Kroenke's proposed stadium in Inglewood.

To date, Chargers owner Dean Spanos has been reluctant to turn his back on Carson partner Mark Davis/Oakland, but it sounds like offers are being readied that can't be refused. Spanos has a sordid history with Kroenke, one that involves backstabbing from the Rams owner, but money appears ready to heal all wounds in this instance. It's looking bleak for San Diego and St. Louis fans. Each of Oakland, St. Louis and San Diego are NFL markets that deserve to keep their teams.

Updating an earlier item, Inglewood, Cal. mayor James Butts says there's "no certainty" Rams owner Stan Kroenke's stadium will be built if the league doesn't approve his relocation bid.

Butts was apparently misconstrued in an interview with InglewoodToday.com. Mercifully, the situation should have some sort of resolution in 10-14 days.

InglewoodToday.com reports Rams owner Stan Kroenke plans to move forward with his Inglewood stadium project regardless of whether or not the NFL approves the Rams' request to move to Los Angeles.

Inglewood mayor James Butts optimistically noted the venue could still be used for "World Cups, Olympics, award shows and other major events." While technically true, it's a pretty naked power play from Kroenke, who wants to signal his extreme desire to relocate to L.A. ahead of this month's vote. His project would almost certainly be dead in the water if the league chooses the Raiders and Chargers over the Rams for Hollywood.

The NFL announced that all three of the Rams, Chargers, and Raiders filed for relocation to Los Angeles on Monday.

This comes as no surprise, as all three clubs were fully expected to do so on Monday, the first day teams were allowed to file for relocation. All three clubs are aiming to move immediately for the 2016 season. Their applications will be reviewed this week and then presented for consideration at next week's league meetings in Houston. A team needs 24 votes from 32 of the league's owners in order to move. The Chargers might have the most support league-wide, but Rams owner Stan Kroenke could simply decide to move no matter what. St. Louis is the only city of the three with a realistic stadium plan to keep its team.

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen voted 17-10 in favor of a financing plan for a new stadium for the Rams.

Under the terms passed Friday, the city would contribute $150 million towards the $1.1 billion project with the state, the NFL and Rams owner Stan Kroenke fitting the rest of the bill. The NFL would provide $300 million under the terms of the plan, which is $100 million more than the league is willing to shell out. On Friday, Roger Goodell wrote the proposal "is fundamentally inconsistent with the NFL’s program of stadium financing." It is unlikely this plan is approved by the NFL or Kroenke, who is already planning a stadium project in Inglewood, but the good faith from St. Louis could persuade the other owners to reject Kroenke's relocation request in January. MMQB's Peter King reported earlier this month the Chargers' Carson plan had "more momentum" than Kroenke's Inglewood plan among the other owners.

Owner Stan Kroenke has proposed making a second team a full partner with the Rams in Inglewood.

Kroenke had previously rejected the idea of sharing his Inglewood stadium with either the Chargers or the Raiders, but now realizes he may have to be open to it in order to get his wish to get his Rams to California. The team that is expected to join forces with the Rams is the Chargers. Kroenke and Chargers owner Dean Spanos have a long history together and make a sensible match. The two teams coming together, with the Raiders, St. Louis, and San Diego left with nothing, is the latest expected outcome in the race to Los Angeles.

A St. Louis Circuit Court judge has ruled the city will not have to conduct a public vote on whether public funding can be used on a new stadium for the Rams.

A lawyer for the defendants called it a "terrible day for democracy." It's a hurdle cleared for the Rams to remain in St. Louis, but hardly a deal-breaker for owner Stan Kroenke as he seeks to return the franchise to Southern California. Kroenke's biggest concern is the NFL preferring Oakland/San Diego's L.A. plan to his own.

Rams owner Stan Kroenke's stadium plan in Inglewood, Cal. could come before a public vote in "mid-June."

The report comes the same day Inglewood mayor James Butts basically said he considered any vote a formality. Getting a stadium built in California is notoriously difficult, but at least so far, Kroenke is facing much smoother sailing than his Los Angeles predecessors.

Inglewood, Cal. mayor James Butts hopes to break ground on Rams owner Stan Kroenke's stadium proposal by next December, and for it to be completed in 2018.

According to Butts, Inglewood is mulling whether a ballot initiative would be necessary for approval. Either way, he anticipates "minimal opposition" to the plan, even though that's rarely the case in California. Butts also insists the town is willing to abide by the league's relocation guidelines. That's something Kroenke's anonymous sources have been saying in recent weeks, as well.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "people close" to Rams owner Stan Kroenke "insist" he would not move the team without the league's blessing.

Earlier reports had suggested Kroenke would move the team come hell or high water, but it seems he's ready to go the diplomatic route as he works on his vision for a stadium in Inglewood, Cal. Kroenke appears to have spent the past two months quietly lobbying his fellow owners. The league has insisted no team will be allowed to move without following the guidelines, which call for the approval of at least 24 owners. San Diego also has its eyes on Los Angeles, while St. Louis is scrambling to put together a plan to keep the team in Missouri. The league bylaws state teams must "exhaust" all options in their current market before relocating.

The Rams notified the Convention and Visitor's Commission of St. Louis that they'll go year-to-year on their lease with the Edward Jones Dome.

It's the expected procedural move, so this isn't earth-shattering news by any means. The Rams will remain in St. Louis for the 2015 season, but everything after that is up in the air. NFL Network's Albert Breer reported Monday that owner Stan Kroenke's stadium-plan designs in Inglewood, CA were met with "quiet applause" in the league office. St. Louis recently revealed its own stadium proposal, but financing the venue is a major hurdle. This story will remain an offseason headline.
