Published December 5, 1995
Officials from the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, the Oakland Football Marketing Association, and the city's police department plan another meeting today on controlling fans at Raiders games, according to the OAKLAND TRIBUNE. Officials already have announced an extra police squad will be on hand during the game against the Steelers this Sunday, bringing the total to 60 police and traffic officers assigned to the Coliseum during Raiders games. On Sunday, 72 people were ejected from the stadium, 32 were arrested and 14 were cited by police, but police Sgt. Bill McFarlane noted, "We could have done three times the business if we wanted to" (Robert Salladay, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 12/5).
