Mark Davis unloads on the A’s

Raiders owner Mark Davis did an interview with The Athletic during which he crapped all over the Athletics.

The transcript of the session with Vic Tafur contains enough profanity to make Raiders coach Jon Gruden think, “Man, that guy swears a lot.” And Davis directs some of it at the A’s.

“Unfortunately, there’s a problem there,” Davis said regarding the A’s effort to get a new stadium in the city from which the Raiders will be fleeing. “As far as the players and everybody, we love the A’s. We seriously do. But the front office has been real pricks. They’ve been really f–king around with us up there, taking advantage of the situation. Which, it is their right to do it, but it makes it hard. Again though, we love the players, we love the A’s.”

Asked about a conflict between the city and the county regarding the posibility of selling the land on which the Coliseum is located to the A’s, Davis offered this general observation: “They’re f–king totally dysfunctional. It’s that f–king bad over there.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Davis said that he’s been careful not to alienate the fans in Oakland as the Raiders prepare to leave for Las Vegas.

“I’ve . . . been aware of Oakland and not wanting to rub it in their face or anything else,” Davis told Tafur. “So we’re not able to celebrate everything, entirely, out of respect.”

Still, it’s clear that Davis is happy to be getting out of Oakland, and to be taking the team to Las Vegas.

  1. The athletics are prepared to fork out most of the money for there stadium, the complete opposite of the son of Al and the team he inherited

  2. To be fair, A’s front office was never the same after Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill left.

  3. Vegas is just a money grab by Davis….look for the black hole in the upper right end zone on the 4th level up….its all the “fans” could afford. The casino’s bought all the good seats, and will host those who fly in from Kansas City, Denver, So Cal, etc….
