HE'S SHOCKED -- SHOCKED! DAVIS CALLS SUIT "UNCONSCIONABLE"

          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).
