RUMOR DU JOUR: AL DAVIS TO SELL RAIDERS FOR HOLLYWOOD PARK
Published October 30, 1997
Al Davis' "contract as the Raiders' president of the general partner expires after next season," according to Randy Harvey of the L.A. TIMES. Harvey: "Speculation persists that he'll resign before then and sell his 27% interest in the Raiders, then take over an expansion team that would begin play in a new stadium at Hollywood Park in 2000 or 2001. That could all be part of a settlement in Davis' latest lawsuit against the NFL" (L.A. TIMES, 10/30).
