Re: “A’s Win as Oakland Fans Shrug Off Critics

Nice that the Express allowed this perspective some space, but it really doesn't make up for the yellow journalism the Express was happy to devote full issues to when the A's were exploring the Peralta stadium site. I even recall something in recent weeks casting the Coliseum re-development as harmful to the East Oakland community.

Re: “Fans Exploring Legal Options to Keep Raiders in Oakland

@ Acronym, every thing you raised is literally a non-issue.

Re: “Peralta Faculty and Laney Students Vote to Oppose New A's Stadium Plan

A belated congratulations to the Express. You've successfully convinced the Peralta board to act entirely against the interests of the College, the City, and longtime Residents of Oakland.

Re: “Fans Exploring Legal Options to Keep Raiders in Oakland

Raiders are gone. Done. Too late.

You know what the Express *can* do, though? Help keep the Oakland A's in Oakland by at the very *least* not spreading blatant NIMBY fear-mongering and ginning up local activists over non-issues on the Peralta plan.

I put the blame for the Raiders move squarely on Mark Davis, but if you look at how hostile the climate is for any kind of development in this city, even when the A's are fully funding their project, you can see why a lot of teams would just give up and move out.

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

So, the birds who stop by a man-made lake and fly to an estuary next to I-880, a major multi-lane interstate that sees heavy traffic pretty much all day with the noise and pollution associated with it, will be endangered by a baseball stadium?

Nice try. NEXT!

Re: “Laney or Bust!

"The As, of course, could have avoided most if not all of these headaches by selecting either of the other sites. In fact, there likely wouldve been no political or community opposition to either of them. "

That sound you heard was absolutely everyone reading this article laughing their asses off. Absolutely no major development in the Bay Area occurs without a cacophony of opposition.

The Jack London site would've incurred most of the same complaints about PTH: Parking, Transit, and Housing, except that it would actually have been further from a BART station. Any development would've required an EIR, and the Howard Terminal site (what people call 'Jack London') would've required hundreds of millions in clean-up after decades of heavy industrial use.

Nice job trolling. I hope the traffic helps keep the Express going, as I still really enjoy it as our local alt weekly.

Re: “Poll: White, Affluent Oaklanders Happiest. Black Residents Least Happy. And Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis.

It's great how the East Bay Express publishes articles like this that dive deep into the topic of the rich diversity in Oakland... by only talking about its Black and White residents.
