The Los Angeles Coliseum Commission voted 8 to 0 Wednesday to support the concept of demolishing and reconstructing the Coliseum as a means of either keeping the Raiders playing in the city or attracting a new professional football team. The only commission member opposed to the idea, Los Angeles County Supervisor Pete Schabarum, left the meeting before the vote for another engagement. The decision cleared the way for the stadium's private managers, Spectacor Management Group and MCA Inc.

The city should have figured this out long ago. Instead, they've allowed the Coliseum Commission to chase away team after team--Lakers, Rams, UCLA football and now the Raiders. At any other stadium, any one of these contracts lost would likely result in the firing of the whole front office. The commission should be run in the private sector rather than by appointed officials who don't know No. 1 about running a business. RAY GLENDRANGE Santa Monica Editor's note: Since last year, a business partnership of two private firms, MCA, Inc., and Spectacor Management Group, has managed the Coliseum and has advised the Coliseum Commission on business decisions.

Reports about moves of the Los Angeles Raiders continued Thursday, as the Oakland Tribune claimed in a front page story that the Raiders "have all but signed a deal to move back to Oakland in the 1990 season." The story, by sports columnist Dave Newhouse, said that elements of the deal include enlarging the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum to 65,000 seats, building 100 permanent luxury boxes, erecting movable bleachers with 40 boxes, building a practice field and clubhouse for the team at the Oakland Port and making a cash gift to the team of $15 million to $20 million.

A spokesman for the private firms trying to keep the Raiders football team in Los Angeles on Monday disputed reports that millions of dollars would be given away to secure the team, saying the Raiders would earn most of the money anyway through normal revenues from a new Coliseum.

The Los Angeles Raiders would get a new Coliseum to play in, an immediate payment of more than $20 million and the promise of an additional $40 million over 10 years if owner Al Davis keeps his team in Los Angeles, under terms of an agreement currently in negotiation. Sources on both sides of the talks, who described the proposed deal, said chances that the team will stay in Los Angeles, rather than move to Oakland or Sacramento, seem to have improved in recent weeks.
