RAIDERS NOW IN DRIVER'S SEAT?
Published January 18, 1995
The Rams move affects the Raiders on "several fronts." Most notably, with a stadium. Raiders Owner Al Davis may be "able to use the loss of the Rams as leverage to better guarantee that" current negotiations on a new facility are successfully concluded. Davis has held talks about a stadium at Hollywood Park in Inglewood and the league had "already been working for some time to keep the team here." If the team reaches an agreement, they could stay at the L.A. Coliseum for the interim, or move to Anaheim, where Davis could take advantage of luxury seating the Coliseum lacks. A Raider official also noted yesterday that the club might increase "its advertising effort in Orange County to attract disenfranchised fans there." The Raiders will also benefit from being the only team covered by local print and electronic media (Steve Springer, L.A. TIMES, 1/18).
