Newsflash: Raiders Not For Sale

It took the Oakland Raiders all of a few hours to refute rumors of the franchise being up for sale. Yesterday the OC Register ran a story about AEG’s desire to acquire a majority ownership of an NFL franchise in hopes of bringing football back to Los Angeles.

Amy Trask released a statement but I think Charlton Heston best sums up what Al Davis would say of those who have designs on taking control of his beloved franchise.

While Trask quickly refuted rumors of a potential sell off there was no mention of a potential move to Los Angeles. Safe to say that option is still on the table. Of course it would have to wait until the current lease with the Coliseum expires in 2013. After that all bets are off as it’s no secret that Mr. Davis wants a new stadium. If he has to move back to L.A. to get it then you’d better believe that will always be a possibility.
