The L.A. Or Oak-Town Way?

Shawn DieboldContributor ISeptember 2, 2009

As I was researching the football history in L.A. for a newspaper class a thought came to mind, what happened with L.A. and our Raiders? Al apparently thought the NFL had a part in the failure to refurbrish the L.A. Coliseum so Al moved the team back to Oakland.

Why do I bring this up now? Because there may have been fans who were ecstatic when they heard Al won the battle with Rozelle to move the team to L.A. Of course on the other hand I would guess the people in Oakland were disappointed.

For the people in L.A. or around the So Cal area what do you think when you hear L.A. Raiders? Do you feel disappointed or do you not mind as long as they remain the Raiders?

Also the people in Oakland, how did you feel when they left and how do you feel now? This article may be and most likely is irrelivent now that we have a season to prepare for.

However it would be cool to discuss how the Raider Nation feels about the L.A., Oakland Raiders deal, even if you dont live in CALI.

 

please comment :)
