The Raiders have moved twice now looking at 3 times all because they wanted to. Was there any effort in Oakland at all?
The first move was a mistake but Al, among other things, saw greener pastures in the Los Angeles market. Ironically the same pastures Kroenke has now. One of Davis' problems was his lack of marketing, keeping the Raiders somewhat in a bat cave. The brand could sell itself for so much. But at least the Davis vs. Rozelle feud went down in football lore as a classic.
