NFL Commissioner Goodell Says Oakland Must Find Long Term Stadium Solution (NFL Draft coverage sponsored by Zeal Wine Imports at http://www.zealwineimports.com )

At the NFL Draft Town, and just before he entered the Sweetness Simulation (named for Walter Payton), NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took time to address the matter of Oakland and the Oakland Raiders need for a new stadium.  This has caused the Raiders to seek a possible new stadium in Carson, California, and to the anger of many Raiders fans - save for those few in Southern California.  

On Oakland, Commissioner Goodell said "Weve been very clear.  Theyre not new issues in Oakland. Theyre not new issues in our other cities. Long Term Stadium solutions. We have to find those. Otherwise teams cant continue to compete, or be successful in those markets.  So thats the real key issue."

By saying ""Weve been very clear," Commissioner Goodell was referring to NFL EVP for Business Ventures Eric Grubmans comments that Oakland is behind schedule in coming up with such a solution.

Coliseum City Origins: Coliseum Stadium Plan For Oakland Athletics Revealed
Oakland Coliseum City: Frank Dobson, Bob Leste, Steve Lowe Had Oakland As Stadium Plan Before Coliseum City  http://www.zennie62blog.com/2013/10/07/frank-dobson-bob-leste-steve-lowe-had-oakland-as-stadium-plan-before-coliseum-city-56582/ -- The Commissioner of Baseball on Monday announced a new committee devoted to determining the viability of baseball in the East Bay.  In his statements Commissioner Bud Selig said that the As owners have exhausted their efforts in Oakland. But really, they have not.  Heres an example in this plan for a new Coliseum baseball stadium on the parking lot land of the facility.  

The plan, created by architect Frank Dobson and Retail Leasing expert Bob Leste with Oaklander Steve Lowe was first introduced in 2004 and while it was presented to the then-new ownership group and As Managing Partner Lew Wolff, it went largely ignored by them.  Wolff was known to be in love with a concept called a baseball village and needed a lot of land to make that work, hence the Fremont land chase.  

But the idea called for hundreds of acres of land, more than the As organization could afford given the economy and so needing public money turned to Fremont, which turned a deaf ear to their request.   

Wolff has not wanted to be in Oakland, but the Mayors Sports and Entertainment Task Force wants to maintain the As here in Oakland.  To that end, it supports the plan youre about to see in this video.   

The plan needs to be upgraded for 2009 and a financing plan developed.   It also lacks an economic impact analysis and a job development report.  But just eyeballing the plan I can say it can generate about 10,000 construction jobs and 4,000 permanent jobs.  It calls for a new stadium, a parking structure, and a retail structure at the Coliseum as well as an enlarged BART bridge.   The total cost is about $440 million but we at the task force understand that was a 2004 estimate.  

The video shows much of Bob Lestes presentation to the task force last Thursday and the discussion as well as the plan itself.

Fantastic Negrito is a man’s truth told in the form of black roots music. Each song is a real story about a musician from Oakland who experienced the highs of a million dollar record deal, the lows of a near fatal car accident that put him in a four-week coma, and is now in the phase of rebirth despite his playing hand being mangled. Negrito’s music emphasizes rawness and space. Slide guitar, drums, piano. Rather than update the Delta Blues, Fantastic Negrito leaves the original sounds of Lead Belly and Skip James intact, building bridges to a modern sound with loops and samples of his own live instruments. But the primary element that drives Fantastic Negrito’s music is uncut realness and zero concern for “pop” anything.

Fantastic Negrito’s song “An Honest Man” will be featured as the opening credits to a cable series that premieres in August 2014.
