The Raiders Are In Las Vegas Because Mark Davis Did Not Want To Be In Oakland And That Is The Truth

ONN – The Raiders Are In Las Vegas Because Mark Davis Did Not Want To Be In Oakland And That Is The Truth

A number of supposedly Las Vegas residents are saying that the Raiders are in Sin City because Oakland did not want them. Not true. Oakland Raiders Owner and Manager of The General Partnership Mark Davis did not want to have his team in Oakland.

Mark lived in Palm Springs and as far back as October 9th of 2011, made media noise about moving the team to Los Angeles. Then, for most of the years from 2011 to 2015, there was another city Davis was flirting moving the team to, like San Antonio, Texas.

But, in 2012, Former Microsoft Chairman Steve Balmer’s purchase of the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion, shook up the sports world. It shocked NFL Owners, because suddenly the NBA was catching up in franchise value and did so via LA; the NFL had no team in Los Angeles. So, that started a flurry of moves that saw the formation of a competition for Los Angeles between St. Louis Rams Owner Stan Kronke and the dual team of Davis and San Diego Chargers Owner Dean Spanos.

The way Spanos and Davis spun it was that they were building a mode of a home stadium in Carson just in case they did not get stadiums in the home markets of San Diego and Oakland. But the truth was Carson was to be their new home. The Raiders had no intention of working out a deal in Oakland – it was a trick.

The Raiders brought in Larry McNeil to be their Oakland stadium czar but he did nothing other than exchange emails with then Oakland Assistant City Administrator Claudia Cappio.

But can anyone tell me what happened to Larry McNeil? All of a sudden, he was not heard from. No mention to this day. And the mainstream media never asked why.

Meanwhile Mark Davis lost his and Spanos NFL to LA competition, and along came Las Vegas Sands Sheldon Adelson to offer to help Davis build a new stadium in Las Vegas. Adelson spent millions to help Davis and engineered the Nevada Legislature’s approval of the $750 million subsidy in a close vote in October 14th 2016.

Meanwhile, Ronnie Lott led a group that was to keep the Raiders in Oakland, but Mark Davis reportedly never met with them. The reason was simple, Davis was headed to Las Vegas, both for the subsidy and for the promise of added revenues from sports gambling.

Stay tuned.
