Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis finds the “Fight for L.A.” between the Rams and Chargers rather comical — because he thinks the NFL’s two Los Angeles-based teams are in a fight for second place, anyway.
“You know, it’s kind of funny,” Davis told the L.A. Daily News. “They’re talking about the fight for Los Angeles. And Raiders fans have been telling me we already won that fight.
“A good portion (of Raiders fans) have come from Los Angeles and Southern California. Without stepping on any toes, we’re going to market ourselves in (the) Los Angeles area. And San Diego. We’re reaching out to Raider Nation in Southern California.”
The Raiders, who spent more than a decade in Los Angeles before moving back to Oakland in 1995, are slated to move to Las Vegas in 2020, making the trek for fans in Southern California much more manageable. The Rams returned to Los Angeles from St. Louis in 2016, and the Chargers moved from San Diego to Los Angeles this season.
