INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Stan Kroenke had dreamed of turning over this particular ceremonial shovelful of dirt ever since his first pre-dawn glimpse of this corner of Inglewood several years ago.The real estate tycoon relished the thought of filling the largest block of contiguous unused land in the Los Angeles area with a lavish, career-defining stadium for his Rams. Under a brilliant Southern California sun Thursday, the team owner officially broke ground on the project with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts at his side.This was so impressive, Kroenke said, recalling his initial late-night clandestine visit to the site. Honestly, I couldnt believe it existed. From my perspective, this should not exist. From our perspective at the NFL, (the situation) probably shouldnt have existed, either. There should not have been a market like the greater Los Angeles area with no NFL team. But both of them existed, and we were very excited, so we started working.The groundbreaking was merely ceremonial: Work has already begun on the estimated $2.6 billion stadium and surrounding entertainment district on the former site of the Hollywood Park racetrack, next door to the famed Forum.The huge construction site is buzzing with crews working toward the scheduled August 2019 opening. The first stadium to be built specifically for an NFL team in Los Angeles is already booked to host the Super Bowl in February 2021.The 69-year-old Kroenke, a billionaire developer married to a Walmart heiress, clearly sees the project as a centerpiece of his legacy from a career spent building less-glamorous projects around the nation.Its our goal to build the most unique and fan-friendly stadium in the world, Kroenke said. Were going to give you something to be proud of. Were going to build a global destination ... in the entertainment capital of the world. We think people from all over the world will seek this location out.While Kroenke finessed the Rams move back home from St. Louis over the past few years, his building plan eventually grew to the dimensions of a small city. The estimated 80,000-seat stadium will have 275 luxury suites and innumerable amenities, but its only the centerpiece of a 300-acre complex featuring 1.5 million square feet of retail and office space, 2,500 residential units, a smaller performance arena, a hotel and 25 acres of parkland.The NFL made several aborted attempts to return to LA during Goodells tenure in the league office, but the plans never gathered momentum until Kroenke presented a sound financial plan to build a stadium complex that could become the West Coast hub for the NFLs operations.We are confident that this is going to be the place to be in 2019 and beyond, Goodell said. Not just for football, but for entertainment, for events, for eating, for living, for working. Thats whats going to come to Inglewood and the Hollywood Park area, and we couldnt be more excited to have the NFL be a part of that.Kroenke has returned the Rams to the market after a 21-year absence, moving them out of his native Missouri and back into LA, where he lives for most of the year. The NFL bought into Kroenkes relocation plan in January largely due to his solid stadium plan, but also required the Rams to prepare for the possibility of an AFC team joining them.The Rams are still waiting to find out whether theyll have roommates in Inglewood. The San Diego Chargers are contemplating their future after their latest failed stadium ballot measure, with a January deadline to announce their plans.Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff said Kroenke speaks to Chargers President Dean Spanos regularly, but the Rams dont know the Chargers intentions.If the Chargers elect to take yet another shot at San Diego, the Oakland Raiders could have the opportunity to return to Los Angeles, where they were based from 1982-94. The Raiders are expected to file for relocation to Las Vegas in January, but the Chargers decision could clear the way for a more lucrative move back to Los Angeles.If they get their issues resolved in San Diego and the issues in Oakland, I think thats an ideal solution, frankly, Goodell said. Thats what we would all like to see have happen. Theres a lot that has to get done in those two communities to get there.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL DeMarcus Cousins College Jersey .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win.

At the height of Shane Warnes powers, one of Australias Ashes celebration rituals was to sing along to Midnight Oils Beds Are Burning - with a twist. The chorus belted out in unison went something along the lines of Poms are crap when the wickets turning. Whether Sri Lankas music scene has unearthed an Oils-style anthem is unclear, but the hosts had every right to mark their second-ever series victory over Australia in a similar manner.Like Alec Stewart and Michael Atherton climbing the Gabba gantry to watch Warne after being dismissed by him in 1994, the Australians are not falling short through a lack of desire to succeed. On the third and final morning of the Galle Test, almost everyone hit the nets and tried to find a way to negotiate the day ahead.The result of this last-minute cramming was a potpourri of batting approaches, and an equally diverse range of dismissals. In that sense there was the vaguest sense of progress: it could, at least, be said that not every batsman fell the same way.Admittedly, David Warner kicked it off with an lbw to a straight ball, but Steven Smith squeezed a short-leg catch coming down the pitch, Mitchell Marsh padded up to a sharp turner, and the last recognised batsman, Adam Voges, reversed swept his way to oblivion, sending his batting average under 80 for the first time.The replacement of monotony with variety did not do much to change the final result. Australia were still bowled out cheaply, the batsmen still fell short of meaningful scores, and Sri Lanka maintained their cavernous advantage in terms of knowledge and aptitude in spin-friendly conditions.Afterwards, Angelo Mathews offered that Australias batsmen look a bit lost, and delivered it with a tone verging on the sympathetic. One got the feeling Mathews might actually have preferred a closer contest, in which the opposition lasted more than 84 overs across two innings.Given that Australia were chasing a target so far beyond their current capability, their batsmen seemed to abandon whatever plans they took into the series and had a go at something new for future assignments. Never was this more evident than in Voges innings, a bizarre spectacle given the almost mystical calm he had managed to show at times over the past 15 months. After making a start in Pallekele, Voges said his plan was to occupy the crease. Three innings later, he was premeditating reverse sweeps with alarming frequency.This had started with Voges very first ball from Dilruwan Perera. While that initial effort brought a boundary, his timing and judgment deteriorated with each attempt until he was bowled behind his pads. Like Warners reverse sweep with the scoreboard reading 18 for 3 the previous evening, it all smacked of batsmen who had been very swiftly hollowed out by the Asian experience, to the point that their modus operandi resembled one of the maxims once beamed onto big screens of U2s ZOOTV tour: Everything you know is wrong.It is sort of instinct, Smith said of his batsmens methods. All the guys growing up in Australia, the majority of wickets that we play on, theyre pretty true. You dont often see too many spinning past the bat or the one that does go straight, it doesnt speed up off the wicket as such. So its certainly a lot easier to play spin in Australia. We have to find ways of doing it differently.The way we came out today and took the game on a little bit - a couple of the guys went over the top, showed a bit of courage, got the field back, a couple of sweep shots, reverse sweeps, it sort of unsettles the bowler a little bit. And youre scorinng at the same time, which is important in these conditions.dddddddddddd If youre sitting on the crease trying to defend, more often than not ones going to have your name on it. So you have to find a way to score at the same time as being out there. Smith admitted Australias plans were reworked after watching Sri Lankas batsmen who, with little Test-match experience or advance billing, had offered a variety of means to combat Australias spinners. The best and most contrasting exponents had been Kusal Mendis and the captain Mathews, the former sweeping Nathan Lyons spin consistently, the latter hitting out gamely rather than waiting around for the unplayable ball.I think some of the boys have learned a little bit from the way the Sri Lankan batters have played, Smith said. We saw a lot of sweep shots from them, reverse sweeps, so I think the guys have learned a little bit from watching them play and having their own plans and courage to implement them out in the middle. Its never easy when the ball is spinning and skidding and you dont know which one is which, with guys around the bat. Its difficult, but I guess you have to have the courage to find the way to do it.Such experiments, however, called into question the approaches taken into this series. These were supposedly honed over a period of up to three weeks for those squad members who spent time in India before arriving in Colombo. The coach Darren Lehmann has said that the batsmen were guilty of not sticking to their plans under pressure, but the grab-bag seen on day three was the strongest possible indicator that no one in this team trusts his earlier judgment.This calls into question the work of those around the team, whether that be Lehmann, the interim batting coach on this tour Stuart Law, or the man Law is temporarily replacing - the promoted former fielding coach Greg Blewett. The position of batting assistant has bounced around a lot since the exit of Michael Di Venuto earlier in the year, with Graeme Hick taking the reins for an ODI tour of the West Indies. Lehmann and the team performance manager Pat Howard have both insisted Blewetts promotion is temporary, but have not set a timeframe on a full-time appointee.Given the ugly extremes of this trip, it would appear essential that a full-time batting mentor with significant experience of playing and coaching in Asia must be hired in time for the home summer. The appointed figure - ideally a player and coach the calibre of Mahela Jayawardene or Michael Hussey - would need to work with the Australians, build relationships and also to ensure the players keep next years India tour in the back of their minds. To venture to India straight after a home summer of bouncier, pace-oriented pitches will be an even harder task than this one.Yet even if that kind of appointment is made swiftly, Australia seem likely to be facing the problems of Pallekele and Galle for some time to come. The selection chairman Rod Marsh and the commentator Allan Border can recall the indignities of the 1982 tour of Pakistan, when the touring team was thumped 3-0 and was never really in the contest. That trip was the low point of a 23-year span when Australia won only one Test match in Asia. With one win from 17 matches in the region dating back to 2008, and a live streak of eight consecutive defeats, Australia are again building a dynasty of the dreadful. Not even the England teams terrified by Warne did that badly.
