Re: “New Ballpark Could Devastate Lake Merritt's Birds

"team that does not black mail a small city"

The Raiders broke ground in Vegas this week.

You must be thinking of them, because the A's are *paying for their own ballpark*.

Next uninformed kneejerk reaction?

Re: “The Laney College Opposition

"Selling Laney College and its surrounding property off to build a stadium"

Okay, seriously now, where the F*CK do you people keep getting "Sell Laney to build a ballpark"?

THEY AREN'T TALKING ABOUT LANEY.

They want to move the Peralta Admin Center (and they will buy PCCD the new location), they'll cleanup the toxic plumes underneath that Peralta is so far behind on dealing with or even *monitoring* that penalties in the millions will rack up soon, and build a ballpark *not even on the same side of the estuary* as Laney.

"He is also interested in developing the area in order to increase rents and drive out low income communities of color."

Where is your backup for this allegation?

Don't bother answering, YOU DON"T HAVE ONE.

Re: “Just Vegas, Baby?: What Are the Odds that the Oakland Raiders Move to Sin City?

"Raiders and the NFL would cover $500 million of the stadium's $1.9 billion price tag, with private investors coming up with $650 million and the public forking over the rest. "

Incorrect.

Raiders give $500M, Nevada contribution specifically *limited* to $750m, *Sands/Majestic* covers all the rest, including overruns.

Tax Increment Financing demands from Sands/Majestic (to recoup investments) were eliminated last week, with the quid-pro-quo being Sheldon Adelson agreeing to buy ±5% of the Raiders for $100M (if plan is approved by Nevada & NFL).
