REPORTS OF RAIDERS RETURN TO L.A. CALLED "RUBBISH"
Published January 22, 1998
Rumors that the Raiders "are contemplating" a return to L.A. "are groundless -- not to mention ludicrous," according to officials in both L.A. and Alameda County cited by Rick DelVecchio of the S.F. CHRONICLE. L.A. City Councilmember Nate Holden, who said only that he was holding a press conference to discuss pro football in L.A., is being branded "as at best ill-informed and at worst a flake who could land the city in legal trouble for interfering with the Raiders' contract to play in Oakland for the next 13 seasons." L.A. City Councilmember Mark Ridley-Thomas: "On no occasion has [Raiders Owner] Al Davis or the Raiders organization indicated an imminent return to the Los Angeles market" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 1/22). NFL President Neil Austrian called the report "a lot of rubbish and rumor" (L.A. TIMES, 1/22).
