OAKLAND STILL HOPEFUL OF A RAIDERS HOMECOMING
Published October 3, 1994
With the uncertain future of the A's, Oakland's pursuit of the Raiders has heated up. A member of the Oakland Coliseum's board of directors has "concocted a plan in which the city and Alameda County would issue construction bonds to improve the facility" to Raiders Owner Al Davis' specifications. The plan "could be floated before the Coliseum's board early this month." And, if they approve it, it "would be presented to Oakland and Alameda County, who would issues the bonds." The bonds would be paid off through revenue from football games and not from taxpayers, which led to a "protest movement against a similar effort" in '90 (Larry Slonaker, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 10/2).
