Arsenal and NFL fans unite in rage as Stan Kroenke makes appearance at LA Rams match
NFL and football.Kroenke was in Florida on Sunday to watch the LA Rams beat Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-27 to reach the NFC Championship game.It took a dramatic late 30-yard field goal from Matt Gay for the visitors to knock out last year’s champions and clinch a dramatic win.Kroenke, who owns the Rams as well as Arsenal, will now see his franchise host the San Francisco 49ers at the SoFi Stadium on Sunday for a place in the Superbowl.A perfect weekend for the 74-year-old billionaire, then? Maybe, provided he doesn’t have the urge to search his name on social media.Kroenke has always been a hugely controversial figure in American sports, where he has alienated supporters of NBA team Denver Nuggets, NHL side Colorado Avalanche and Colorado Rapids of MLS, who all fall under his Kroenke Sports & Entertainment umbrella.LA Rams fans might not mind, considering their success this season, but in general NFL fans are not keen on Kroenke.There are multiple reasons behind that antipathy, but the biggest one is his decision to move the Rams from St Louis in Missouri to California in 2015.That was extremely messy, and what Kroenke might term his hard-nosed business sense, but what his detractors would call money-focused heartlessness, has made him the NFL’s bogeyman.It’s fair to say that Arsenal fans are also not keen on the American, who has left the running of the club to his son, Josh, and not invested as much as supporters would like.The 0-0 draw against Burnley, which left Arsenal winless in five games in 2022 and without a goal in four, heightened anti-Kroenke sentiment further.On Sunday those two sub-genres of unhappy sports fans convened on Twitter to berate Kroenke, who was pictured in Tampa in an executive box

Massive shark filmed lurking feet from oblivious surfers in exact spot where man died
shark lurking close to a group of clueless surfers in the dangerous waters where a bodyboarder was killed nearly 10 years ago.The apex predator was seen swimming inches away from the water sports enthusiasts close to Betty's Bay in Cape Town, South Africa.Greg Davies, who shared the footage on Twitter yesterday (January 18), can be heard talking to his friend while he zooms in from a high vantage point.A bodyboarder is seen paddling out towards their friend as the shark approaches from the left.The creature is filmed disappearing in the waves not far from the coast, where a group of swimmers are dipping their feet in the shallow water.Greg and his friends are stunned as they watch the predator swimming closer to the people, who appear to have no idea of the shark's presence."It's crazy, maybe it's just below the surface. They don't even know about it," he said.As soon as Greg posted the clip online, some viewers pointed out that the location was close to the spot where surfer David Lilienfeld perished after a fatal shark attack in April 2012.The 20-year-old Springbok bodyboarder was hunted by a 13ft-long great white shark when he was riding waves with his brother Gustav at Gordons Bay.He was hit by the shark three times and died with severe injuries after he was rushed to the hospital.One viewer said: "Shows that humans not natural prey.
