On this date in 1982, the Raiders defeated the NFL in court allowing the team to relocate to Los Angeles. Probably the only time you root for the Raiders is when they are competing against the league in court. Too bad there aren't any Raiders fans in the court room to take out a league employee or two.
Well, they are in court, but are typically shackled to a desk.
This story does have a happy ending as the Raiders occupation of Los Angeles finally ended in 1994. Funny, and Al Davis thought they would be greeted as liberators but everybody was happy to see them leave.
