OAKLAND STILL HOPEFUL OF A RAIDERS HOMECOMING

     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).
