St. Louis Football Fans Are Giving It To Stan Kroenke With Both Barrels
Andy Cohen is host of the Bravo TV show Watch What Happens: Live, as well as a radio host and executive producer of The Real Housewives. He was also born in St. Louis, and was not feeling very cheerful on his show last night. He had this pointed message for Rams owner Stan Kroenke.

As if you didn't know, the NFL is coming back to Los Angeles in 2016 -- as owners voted to let the St. Louis Rams relocate to Los Angeles. It's the second time a city has gotten their NFL franchise back, since Oakland pulled the trick with the Raiders in 1995. The San Diego Chargers have the option to follow the Rams and share a new stadium in Inglewood, which Kroenke will build for a mere $1.1 billion.
The Raiders had also applied to move to LA, but withdrew from the process on Tuesday.
Cohen's reaction was heat-seeking and on target, but please find below the best quote of all about the situation:

So now St. Louis loses an NFL team for the second time, and there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth there. But unlike other NFL relocations, this one has happened in the age of social media.
