During Tuesday's owners meeting, NFL general counsel Jeff Pash informed the owners in attendance of the the move which reportedly left them angered and stunned.

The Rams and NFL owners have been dealing with a four-year lawsuit from the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority. It argues that the NFL misled the city on the team's plans to leave and cost it millions of dollars in revenue.

As part of the team's relocation to Los Angeles, Kroenke agreed to pay the bulk of the legal fees from the lawsuit. He, along with the owners of the Chargers and Raiders, agreed to an indemnification agreement years ago when all three franchises were planning their relocation. Kroenke's lawyers reportedly informed Pash that he was challenging the indemnification agreement.

He addressed the room of owners arguing that the lawsuit was not his fault and he did everything the other NFL owners asked of him. He was then asked to leave the room by commissioner Roger Goodell.

It doesn’t sound like he was that impressed with the noise level from Baltimore Ravens fans, either. © Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow Burrow and the Bengals dominated the Ravens en route to a 41-17 victory. The former LSU star threw for over 400 yards and had three touchdowns. He told Peter King of NBC Sports that being a former LSU star has helped prepare him for playing on the road.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was supportive of Kroenke and said he had done a lot for the NFL. Robert Kraft, the owner of the Patriots, said Kroenke's position was unfair — something most of the owners felt. Giants co-owner John Mara called the new stance ridiculous and added that the only reason the other owners agreed to the relocation was because Kroenke agreed to indemnify the league, per ESPN.

The lawsuit is due for trial on Jan. 10, 2022. Super Bowl LVI is scheduled just a month later at SoFi Stadium where the Rams call home.
