Raiders Owner Mark Davis Calls Relocation Lawsuit 'Meritless and Malicious'

Share

The NFL has not directly commented on the lawsuit.

The team, which plays at the Oakland Coliseum, does not have a confirmed lease for a home next season, and team owner Mark Davis warned previously he could boycott the venue if the city ever filed a lawsuit.

Reggie McKenzie seemed damned if he did and damned if he didn't as the Oakland Raiders' general manager.

In addition to the Raiders, the city is naming the National Football League and all of the other 31 teams as defendants in the federal antitrust suit. Oakland City Attorney Barbara J. Parker said the lawsuit seeks financial compensation because of the move and "Oakland taxpayers invested in the Raiders and other costs".

"I think there are some logistical challenges in our bid that the league would have to work through with a multi-site bid between us and Canton", Jenkins said.

The suit could accelerate the timeline for the Raiders move elsewhere before the new stadium in Las Vegas is ready. "I want to play in Oakland and I'm real sensitive like you would expect".

"The NFL Draft is one of the most-anticipated events of the year and we are excited to take it to Las Vegas", NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said.

ALAMEDA, Calif. - What had been threatened since the first week of the season became reality Tuesday when the city of Oakland announced it has filed a federal lawsuit against the Raiders and the NFL.

At the National Football League owners meetings in Dallas Raiders owner Mark Davis called the lawsuit against his team "meritless and malicious".

"I've had like 27 different people in the locker next to me in five years. The fact that it could be the last is insane, but when that time comes, we'll enjoy it".

The decision by the team means that the Christmas Eve game at the Coliseum against the Denver Broncos could be the last game the Raiders play at the venue.

"I think it'll be somber; it's going to be hard for me", said Kugler.

"Everything's an option right now", Davis said.

According to ESPN, potential home cities for the Raiders in 2019 include San Diego, Santa Clara, Reno, Las Vegas, and Glendale, Arizona.
