Al Davis Discusses New Stadium, Raiders-49ers Relationship

Between Raiders-49ers Is Misconception
NO CHANGES COMING: In Oakland, Monte Poole notes Davis in September said that the Raiders would "benefit from another authoritative voice" in the front office. But as Davis yesterday introduced Tom Cable as head coach, he said he is "just not ready" to bring in a new exec. Poole: "It has to be downright discouraging for those who wanted to think Al was ready to share high-level authority in hopes of forming a brain trust capable of leading the Raiders out of the NFL wilderness. It means the Raider Nation likely will be fed another bowl of what it has been served for years. It may not be what's needed or wanted, but it's what Al decides to give." The Raiders "have not addressed their biggest issue," they have "simply changed their appearance." The team has "put a different suit on a seriously ill man" (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 2/5).
