Raiders' Janikowski Denies Rooting Against A's

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has kicked off the infield dirt at the Coliseum for so long now that it's become almost second nature to him.

That's why Janikowski was surprised - and a bit angry - to read a published report saying he annually roots for the Oakland Athletics to miss the playoffs so the dirt can be replaced with sod.

The Raiders are the only NFL team to share facilities with a baseball team, having done so since 1995.

Janikowski normally makes it a habit to duck out of the locker room without speaking to reporters but was waiting in front of his stall when the media was allowed in. He only spoke for two minutes, but his message was clear: The kicker is fully behind the A's and their run to the postseason.
