Raiders won’t reveal their case for leaving Oakland

Stephen Sugarman interviewed by San Jose Mercury News, Jan. 6, 2016

Stephen Sugarman questioned the NFL’s interpretation of its rules but said that fans and cities such as Oakland had no legal standing to demand the Raiders release their reasons for seeking to leave town. “The whole idea of having a sensible criteria set out in advance is … to avoid another antitrust battle between the league and the team seeking to relocate — as happened with the Raiders in the past.”
