Busted Coverage- A lot of people in St. Louis are pissed about Stan Kroenke relocating the Rams to Los Angeles, but no one is more pissed than podcaster Kelly Manno.
We’re sure of this because Kelly — and some donors — took it upon themselves to send Mr. Kroenke $250 worth of crap from IPoopYou.com, a “professional poop delivery service” based in the Bay Area.
A look into Kelly’s mindset from The Riverfront Times:
“St. Louis is pissed off,” Manno explained on her podcast, which dropped Monday. “And here’s one thing that I have learned about St. Louis through this whole debacle. St. Louis is like having a crazy relative that you can talk bad about — but nobody else can talk bad about them, or you’ll kill them. We can trash it all day long, but when Kroenke trashes it, you’re getting poop.”
Sending another human being shit in a box is so petty. It's so childish. It's so spiteful. That why - in this case - it's so perfect. Stan Kroenke didn't just steal the Rams from St. Louis. He didn't just make a frugal decision that came at the expense of his hometown fans. He tarnished their reputation to do so. He dragged the name of a beloved sports town -albeit not a great football town- through the mud on his way out the door. He's the one that started playing dirty so fans literally had no other choice of recourse then to stoop to his level. Hurt people don't take the high road after being kicked while they are down, especially when the high road would have proven Stan Kroenke's point entirely. Did you even love your team at all if you aren't willing to pay a company to ship poop to their owner when he unceremoniously uproots them across the country? Sending Stan Kroenke an arrangement of fecal matter was the closest that St. Louis Rams fans could come to smearing his face in shit like he metaphorically did to the city just one week before. There are a lot of things that wealthy old white men can ignore. Criticism is definitely one of them, but containers full of poop are unquestionably not. He may think his shit doesn't stink, but I'd love to see if he feels the same way about cow droppings. I hope that package does make it to Stan's doorstep. I hope he does lack the wherewithal to realize who it may have came from. I hope that horrific emanation does manage to hit his nostril because that will mean - if only for the briefest of moments - Rams fans will have gotten even. If may just be the smallest of moral victories, but when someone takes your football away from you you'll bask in whatever revenge you can get. Dinner is served, Stanley...
