Raiders Working On Oakland NFL New Coliseum Stadium Cost Study Many of you have asked about the meeting that took place between Oakland City Administrator Claudia Cappio and new Oakland Raiders business affairs representative and point person Larry McNeil that took place three weeks ago now, and where the news about that was broken here at Zennie62.com. Well, after conversations this week and on Thursday, I can now tell you that the Raiders are working on a new stadium cost analysis study for a facility at the Coliseum. The news of that study work by the Raiders was told by Ms. Cappio to Oakland officials and County of Alameda Officials and Coliseum JPA Officials last week. I was told by several leaders that they don't know when the report by the Raiders will be finished. This also does not clear up the new problem where the Oakland and East Bay Officials learned the Raiders duped them into thinking they were just waiting for the NFL's LA decision in January, and were not going to meet on any plans for a new stadium in Oakland until after that January Houston meeting, and after a new Coliseum lease was signed. That was done on April 27th of 2016. But the Raiders Las Vegas stadium plans had gathered life and steam between the time Oakland officials were told to wait and the April 27th date. Now, this news of the Las Vegas plans being set in motion as far back as perhaps December of last year brings up a new set of issues regarding good faith bargaining. While Oakland public leaders are not pleased about that news, and NFL guidelines clearly prohibit such behavior, they are also now obviously working with Mark Davis and his people on a new home in Oakland - as well as one in Las Vegas. Let the games begin - well, they really already started.
