L.A. STORY, PART II -- DAVIS IN CATBIRD SEAT IF RAMS MOVE
Published November 8, 1994
A spokesperson for the Raiders declined to comment on reports that Orioles Owner Peter Angelos had made a bid for the team. ESPN's Gary Miller said Angelos is in a "wait-and see- mode" on an NFL move to Baltimore, but that his offer to Raiders Owner Al Davis "reportedly mirrors his offer to the Rams" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 11/7). CNBC's Sue Herera said Davis is waiting to see if he has an NFL "monopoly" in L.A. before making a decision on whether to sell his team ("Sports Business Minute," 11/7). In Baltimore, Ken Rosenthal writes that Angelos' offer to buy the Raiders is "classic grandstanding," adding that Angelos' "chances of stealing the Rams appear to be fading, so he's trying to create the illusion that he has other options" (Baltimore SUN, 11/8). Today, the OAKLAND TRIBUNE's John Hickey speculates on "what if" the Raiders didn't leave Oakland in 1982. Hickey: "If the Raiders remained, it is likely that one of the Coliseum's other tenants -- either the Warriors or the A's -- would have had to leave" (11/8).
