If you build it, they will come!

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke is taking a page out of Kevin Costner's book and building a field of dreams!

Only, in Kroenke's case, the field is a football stadium in the middle of Inglewood, California — not a corn field.

Kroenke and his partners Stockbridge Capital Group are planning to build a stadium, along with a 6,000-seat performance venue on the former site of the Hollywood Park racetrack, next to the Forum. That's convenient since Stockbridge owns the property, and Kroenke bought 60-acres next to it.

They've projected that the 80,000-seat stadium will open by 2018, and are already seeking signatures to get it on the Inglewood municipal ballot in 2015.

So, what does Inglewood mayor James T. Butts Jr. think of this? He said:

We had a feeling some people wouldn't like this.

Yesterday, before their home game against the Oakland Raiders, some of the St. Louis Rams players came out onto the field with their hands up, silently and peacefully protesting the Michael Brown shooting decision in nearby Ferguson.

St. Louis Rams Enter The Field With A BIG Statement! Watch Their 'Don't Shoot' Tribute To The Michael Brown Protests HERE!

Filed under: ZportzFootballNFL

We have a feeling their message was heard loud and clear.

Throughout the months following Michael Brown's deadly shooting, people have been peacefully protesting police violence with their hands up in a 'don't shoot' stance.

Some of the St. Louis Rams players continued this silent protest on Sunday, after former officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for the shooting last week.

Stedman Bailey, Jared Cook, Chris Givens and receivers Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt were among the Rams who entered the Edward Jones Dome with their hands up as they jogged onto the field before playing the Oakland Raiders.

After a touchdown in the first quarter, the silent protest was seen again.

You can watch just how powerful it was (above)!

Nooo!!!

When we heard that Michael Sam had been cut from the St. Louis Rams’ roster, we were still hoping they’d keep him on their practice squad!

But it just wasn’t to be, despite all of the nice words that coach Jeff Fisher had to say.

However, his skills didn’t quite live up to expectation, and the St. Louis Rams had to cut him, in favor of undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks.

Now, Sam is on waivers, but if no other team picks him up, the Rams would love to keep him in the organization on the practice squad!

Coach Jeff Fisher talked about Sam at a press conference, saying
