HISTORY SAYS THAT DAVIS WILL RETURN FOR ANOTHER SEASON
Published April 14, 1995
Coliseum officials in L.A. "still harbor hopes" that the Raiders will be playing there for the "foreseeable future," according to Kenneth Reich in today's L.A. TIMES. If Raiders Owner Al Davis proceeds with a deal to move to a new stadium at Hollywood Park, "it would be the third time in eight years that [Coliseum] officials have been told the team is on its way elsewhere." Thus, officials hope Davis will agree to play there until a new stadium is completed. If he does, they plan to pursue improvements including luxury suites, more parking and a modernized Exposition Park (the area that surrounds the Coliseum). If Davis' Hollywood plan "does not materialize," Coliseum officials hope he will decide to stay. According to one official, if Davis does returns, it will not be under a rent-free deal, such as the one the team enjoyed last year (L.A. TIMES, 4/14).
