The Los Angeles Rams held a press conference in Inglewood on Friday afternoon to greet the local community and talk about their future.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke, Inglewood major James Butts, Hollywood Park Land Company senior vice president Chris Meany, Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff addressed the crowd and then took questions.
“This is all about football, really,” Kroenke said. “This is the great history of the Los Angeles Rams.”
“It’s been a long road, but we made it,” the owner added.
The Rams are going back, back to Cali after 21 seasons in St. Louis, with the highlights of course being the Greatest Show on Turf era and the Super Bowl XXXIV victory over the Tennessee Titans in 2000.
The Rams will have plenty of questions to answer this offseason after not producing a winning season since 2003 or a playoff appearance since 2004, but both Kroenke and Demoff expressed optimism that the Rams are headed in the right direction under coach Jeff Fisher.
“We’ve got a great young team on the rise,” Kroenke said.
“We’re going to win,” Demoff said. “We’re going to play great football.”
