The Oakland A’s, Lew Wolff and Bud Selig V. the JPA, Jean Quan, and the Oakland City Council

I had been vocal, against Selig and Wolff, and how they have treated Oakland. Here they were trying to throw the City a Bone. IE get some stability if only for 3~4 Years. I have been warming up to them recently. My Beloved City is doing what I think to be unfair… forcing a renegotiation after a deal was made. Instead of moving forward, we are getting an insight of Oakland City Politics, and why Al left Oakland in the first Place.   When Al signed the Deal, or should I say… After renegotiation, again the City forced a renegotiation, so as the Raiders actually played their First Game back, without a signed Deal.   There is a precedence in Oakland Sports Negotiation… This is common, it is not the way to do Business.

On the Coliseum, the difference from 1995 to now… Before George Vukasin and the Board were void of elected politicians, and in the complex consistently in the black. A business run for profit.
Since… The JPA. The facility is run Constantly in the Red, in need of public Subsidy on a growing yearly basis… A non-Profit. So… This time around, it’s not Wolff & Selig being unreasonable.

Added 7-23-2014 The A’s did agree to the changes. This will prevent Raiders to build

on property.
