Raiders Won't Return To Oakland In 2019 Amidst Lawsuit

"'The lawsuit will not ask the court to prevent the Raiders" move to Las Vegas or keep the team in Oakland'.

The team has been on a year-to-year lease agreement with the Coliseum.

"Emotionally, I would say, why would I give them $3 [million], $4 [million], $5 million in rent that they're going to turn around and use to sue me?" he said. He has since walked back those statements somewhat: 'I personally want to play in Oakland. "But when that time comes, we will enjoy it". I can't do it. "It just seems different to even have to think that way, because I've spent five years playing in this stadium".

"The defendants brazenly violated federal antitrust law and the league's own policies when they boycotted Oakland as a host city", Parker said. "But, if in fact it does get ugly, and can't be bridged, we do have options".

She sued Trump for defamation after he responded to the allegation by tweeting: "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man". Daniels is locked in a legal battle against Trump and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen .

The league announced Wednesday at an owners meeting that the city where the Raiders will begin play in September 2020 will host the draft that April.

Parker alleged that the NFL's demand for the public to bankroll new stadiums under threat of club relocation has pushed cities like Oakland out of the marketplace for professional football teams, caused skyrocketing ticket prices, and enriched the NFL owners.

This season he has watched Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper - both thought to be cornerstones of the Raiders' future alongside Carr before Gruden was hired - traded away to the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys respectively.

The federal antitrust and breach of contract lawsuit names the National Football League, the Raiders and each of the other 31 National Football League clubs as defendants. The city is demanding that the Raiders' name remain in Northern California. In a move that was widely expected to be done at the season's end, the Raiders fired Reggie Mckenzie in what is another step in the overhaul of this team.

Locations like San Antonio, Reno, Santa Clara, and Fresno have also been discussed as temporary landing spots for the Silver and Black.
