The NFL owners, especially Sofi Stadium owner Stan Kroenke, must have had a serious brain fart when it comes to their latest proposal. The Bleacher Report is stating the NFL wants the players to help fund Kroenke’s Inglewood stadium.
The NFL didn’t totally think through the return to the Los Angeles market nor did the Inglewood City Council in their haste to put a feather in the cap of Inglewood Mayor James Butts.
Not only does the city of Inglewood lack sufficient parking for Kroenke’s multi billion dollar stadium, and the Los Angeles Chargers inability to sell PSL tickets, the league has forgotten how it treats its players when they stand up for social issues, specifically the black balling of former quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Now we learn that the NFL is proposing that the players help fund Kroenke’s stadium. The answer should be a loud and resounding FUCK NO!
The city of Inglewood is proposing a people mover, to the Forum, stadium and possible NBA arena, to solve the lack of parking and during this week’s city council meeting, they are suggesting a developer to self fund the construction and get paid once its up and running.
Another idea was that property owners pay through it via their property taxes. Mayor Butts continue to laud the project as “totally self financed by Kroenke” which appears to be a lie.
Stockbridge Capital is responsible for investing government employees pensions, and have dumped all monies received into financing the Inglewood stadium.
The city and Kroenke have bitten off more than they can chew and are making the return a football to the Los Angeles region a nightmare.
If the players do plan on entertaining the leagues proposal, the only logical compromise would be the immediate return of Colin Kaepernick to a NFL team or Stan Kroenke can go fuck himself.
