CALIFORNIA IN BRIEF : OAKLAND : Officials Huddle With Davis on Possible Move by Raiders

January 13, 1990|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Oakland authorities, led by Mayor Lionel Wilson, met for two hours with Los Angeles Raiders owner Al Davis on Friday to discuss that city's bid for the football team to return to its former home in Oakland. Afterward, Davis called it "a good meeting" but gave no indication when he might decide between competing bids from Oakland, Sacramento and Los Angeles--all vying to be the future home for the Raiders. "The most crucial thing for me is the future and the greatness of the Raiders," Davis said. "I'm going to do what is best for the team." Wilson said Oakland expected to hear something in two weeks, but such optimism has been standard among officials meeting with Davis in a bidding process that has been going on for 2 1/2 years.
