SOURCES SAY RAIDERS CLOSE TO OAKLAND AGREEMENT
Published May 17, 1995
Officials close to negotiations said yesterday "the Oakland- rooted franchise is close -- but just short -- of an agreement to return north," according to David Li in today's OAKLAND TRIBUNE. Coliseum President George Vukasin and City Council member Ignacio De La Fuente said the East Bay offer to the Raiders "is gaining serious consideration," but both officials have denied that Raiders Owner Al Davis had accepted. The fate of the Raiders is expected to be decided next week at the NFL owners meeting in Jacksonville, and although he would not comment on "specific stadium issues," a Raiders spokesperson "hinted" yesterday that the meetings "could help settle the issue" (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 5/17).
