L.A. CITY COUNCIL TO RAIDERS: DON'T COME AROUND HERE NO MORE
Published November 2, 1998
The L.A. City Council voted 10-3 to adopt a resolution saying the city "never wants the Raiders or [Owner Al] Davis to darken the doorstep of Los Angeles again," according to Rick Orlov of the L.A. DAILY NEWS. But Raiders Dir of Football Operations Bruce Allen said that the City Council vote "wouldn't play a role" in Davis' decision on the future of the team, which won't be made public until after the season. Davis says he holds rights to the L.A. market. The vote "caused some concern on the part" of Council member Mark Ridley-Thomas, who is looking to land an NFL expansion team for the Coliseum. Ridley-Thomas and two others voted against the measure, "saying it should be studied further." Ridley-Thomas: "We're at a sensitive point, and I am very conscious of the downsides of any discussions that talks about a specific organization" (L.A. TIMES, 11/1).
