HOLLYWOOD PARK DECISION IS NOW UP TO RAIDERS
Published June 12, 1995
Raiders Owner Al Davis and Hollywood Park officials "are finally 'on the verge of a final agreement' that would result in the construction of a new stadium in Inglewood and a permanent home [in L.A.] for the Raiders," according to Bill Plaschke of the L.A. TIMES. Davis was given a final proposal by Hollywood Park officials on Friday, a proposal that they "expect him to accept" (L.A. TIMES, 6/10). The deal, however, is reportedly being "held up" while Davis "seeks assurances from the architect and contractor that the facility will be completed on time" (Tim Trepany, L.A. DAILY NEWS, 6/11). Hollywood Park Chair R.D. Hubbard said that Davis "has to have confidence" that the stadium will be built by 1997. Hubbard: "Basically, the ball is now in the Raiders' court and we will see what their decision is in the next few days" (S.F. EXAMINER, 6/11).
