Oakland Raiders Owner Mark Davis
Tuesday morning, Oakland Raiders Owner Mark Davis appeared on 95.7 The Game to talk with radio host J.T. The Brick. During his time on the air, Davis discussed a variety of topics, but focused on what ultimately went into the Raiders approval for relocation.
"We are going to be building a world-class stadium in the entertainment capital of the world, it's going to be great for Super Bowls and everything else," said Davis.
While the Raiders will eventually be relocating, Davis emphasized that the team will continue serving the community of Oakland.
"I still have a feeling for the fans in the Bay Area… it makes this whole thing bittersweet," Davis continued. "Even though we are leaving to play football games in Nevada, in Las Vegas, we're not going to leave the Bay Area. We're not going to leave that community, we're still going to work the foundations, we're going to work with the schools, and we're going to continue to give the Raider effort."
Davis concluded the interview by stating he understands the pain and hurt the Oakland Raiders fans are currently feeling. While he knows this is a difficult time for many people, he's excited about the team's future going forward.
"I understand that there's anger, disappointment, and I just think it should be pointed at me, and not [quarterback] Derek Carr, not [defensive end] Khalil Mack, and not the Head Coach, Jack Del Rio, because those guys want to bring a championship to the Bay Area," Davis added. "The Raider fans are the best in the world, the ones in Oakland are the best in the world."
