Oakland: New investor on board for Coliseum City
By Matthew Artz, Oakland Tribune

It seems like the city Oakland doesn't really care if the Raiders stay in Oaktown....if they did they would of got a new stadium deal built already....if they keep putting it off the Raiders just might be gone by then all L.A. needs is a HELL YEAH by Mark Davis, BOOM a stadium is built....:-[

I don't know how much it cost.

I know they still have 100m to pay off of Mt Davis.

I've also heard (via twitter from someone who knows a Coliseum Maitenance worker) *take info with grain of salt* but Mt Davis has been deemed unsafe to use because of cracks in the beam.

So whilst the media beats up that Raiders has an attendance issue and has to utilise tarps.. the real reason Mt Davis has been closed off is it's a liability waiting to crumble. (It kind of makes perfect sense because the A's don't even open up Mt Davis for the ALDS)

Actually don't quote me on that last bit.

I just tried searching for the tweet & unfortunately no such luck.

But sounded legit reasoning why we supposedly have an attendance issue.
