PLAYERS AND UNION WATCHING DISPUTE BETWEEN RAIDERS AND NFL
Published September 11, 1995
NFLPA Asst Exec Dir Doug Allen said they are watching the dispute between the Raiders and the NFL over the distribution of PSL revenue "with great interest," according to the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. Allen: "I think the NFL and the players association have a similar view of how this money should be treated. I don't think; I know." The union takes the league's side because only shared ticket revenue is used in calculating the salary cap. Raiders attorney Joseph Alioto says the owners knew Davis wasn't going to share the money when they approved the move: "Al made it clear he was not going to pay any fee for moving to Oakland, no matter what rubric or name it's put under. They accepted that commitment from him, and now they've repudiated that comment" (Barry Witt, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/9).
