St. Louis Rams Owner Stan Kroenke Reportedly Harangues Steve Spagnuolo

For once, St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke is in the news for something other than wanting to move the team to Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it's because he's reportedly haranguing Steve Spagnuolo after particularly disappointing Rams losses.

It's a weird story—Kroenke never struck me as an especially hands-on owner, and if you were going to begin haranguing Spagnuolo now seems like an unwise time, considering the Rams' 0-2 record is more the result of some incredibly weird fundamental mistakes than structural problems. That's certainly the coach's problem, but I'm not sure it's something that will persist, let alone something that can be fixed by replacing him with somebody else.

I'm just hoping this is an uncorroborated tweet, and not the start of the Al Davis era in St. Louis. Does anybody know Stan Kroenke's feelings on fast, otherwise-unskilled wide receivers? Has anybody checked to see if he owns a James Jett jersey? These are my primary concerns, and not the haranguing in itself (with all apologies to Steve Spagnuolo's feelings.)
