And this guy needs public funding?

The owner of the St. Louis Rams is making news this week, but not for anything regarding the uncertain future of his football franchise.

Forbes ranked Stan Kroenke the 92nd richest American in its annual ranking of the super rich. According to the current issue of the magazine, the 65-year-old Kroenke is worth $4 billion. In addition to owning the Rams and the pro basketball and hockey teams Denver Nuggests and Colorado Avalanche, Kroenke is chairman of THF Realty, a development company that builds strip malls (many of which are anchored by Walmart stores).

Kroenke's wife, Walmart heiress Ann Walton Kroenke, is actually worth more than her hubby, according to Forbes, with a net worth of $4.5 billion ranking her as the 79th wealthiest American.

In a separate article, Forbes also names Kroenke as the tenth largest landowner in the United States. Kroenke owns some 750,000 acres of land -- mostly in Montana and Wyoming.

Hmm, so if a stadium deals doen't work out in St. Louis or Los Angeles. There's always Big Sky country. The Missoula Rams, anyone? The mascot certainly makes more sense.
