Football fans in St. Louis set out to make a point during the BattleHawks’ home opener on Sunday.

It started with fans of the team absolutely trolling Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke years after he relocated the NFL franchise from the Gateway to the West to Southern California.

As the XFL game continued between the BattleHawks and New York Guardians, fans inside The Dome at America’s Center were absolutely rocking the joint.

Check out this video.

I’m pretty darn sure this is louder than anything we have heard in the Rams’ first four seasons in Los Angeles since Kroenke’s decision to relocate the squad.

It doesn’t hurt that St. Louis held a 23-3 lead at the half, including the first kickoff return for a touchdown in XFL history.

Great stuff for the startup league right here.
