Clearly the idea is to create what the San Francisco Giants created when they built their new park in China Basin. Before then, the area was primarily a warehouse district that was thought to be one of the more seedy locations in San Francisco. Now, twelve years after the park was built, the area is a thriving economic resource for the city that has provided a ton of new jobs, places to live and revenue for the city."
Finally getting somewhere. Sharing with the Niners is still probably the most likely scenario right now, but the Raiders need their own stadium, and a proposal that recharges that neighborhood like what happened to China Basin certainly would help.

Wondering the contract language in all of those personal seat licenses. Gotta be some liability there.

Well, they might have to give those licensed seat holders first choice at the new stadium, assuming the team remains close to Oakland.

I can see some potential liability, but it shouldn't be a sticking point between reasonable people. Of course unreasonable people abound these days.

New NFL stadium isn't going to recharge any neighborhood at 10 days a year and all fans coming in to tailgate in the parking lot then drive away, but I guess it's better than abandoning the coliseum complex

Pretty much. It would be nice if such a large project could be more multipurpose.

It's a HUGE waste of money if that's their goal. But when has Oakland ever made a good decision regarding sports teams? Yeah, never.
