The Raiders Lose Bid to Move to LA

After a failed bid to move to LA it appears the Oakland Raiders will likely remain playing in Oakland at least for now. Last night the NFL owners met and voted on proposals for moving teams into the LA market. The second largest city in the U.S. currently has no foot ball teams, but the owners decided to offer rights for building a stadium in Inglewood to the Saint Louis Rams with an option for the San Diego Chargers to join them. The Raiders leadership has shown little desire to stay in Oakland, their options at least for next season may soon be running out if they want to move. Pacifica's Mike Kohn files this report.
