Tim Leiweke of AEG said that the Raiders were “certainly” among the teams they have spoken to about purchasing and moving to Los Angeles. It should come as no surprise the Raiders quickly released a statement saying this wasn’t true.
“The team is not for sale. It will remain with the Davis family,” CEO Amy Trask via Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.
The wording is interesting, perhaps an indication that the organization will stay in the Davis family even after Al is gone.
Compared to the Vikings response to the AEG report, however, the Raiders response doesn’t leave any room for interpretation. Very Raiders-like.
