HE'S SHOCKED -- SHOCKED! DAVIS CALLS SUIT "UNCONSCIONABLE"
Published August 7, 1998
Raiders Owner Al Davis called the City of Oakland's lawsuit against the team "unconscionable" in an interview last night on KTCT-AM, the team's flagship radio station, according to the S.F. CHRONICLE. Davis "covered little new ground" in the interview, and "expressed his frustration with lagging ticket sales." Davis: "The Raiders just cannot exist without a sold-out stadium and sold-out suites. I just want to be able to compete. I want to have the opportunities they have in Baltimore, Tampa, St. Louis, Nashville. But the first thing we want to do is get Oakland officials to make good on this promise to sell out the seats and the suites" (Ron Kroichick, S.F. CHRONICLE, 8/7).
