Raiders owner Mark Davis is getting fed up with the Oakland A’s

With the organization dealing with the fact that owners around the league don’t want them in Los Angeles, they are now trying to get a new stadium in Oakland. But they are having a serious problem with the team they share the stadium with. Owner Mark Davis is getting fed up with the Oakland A’s due to them holding up plans for a new stadium.

 

“There’s an elephant in the room, and that’s the Oakland A’s,” Davis said after Thursday’s press conference. “They have to make a commitment to what they want to do.”

The Athletics signed a 10-year lease extension with the existing O.co Coliseum in 2014, an agreement Davis says has hurt development prospects on the Coliseum site. Davis wants the A’s to state their long-term plans for a new ballpark, and where that will be. Until they do, Davis says everyone is stuck in neutral.

“That’s the problem. They signed a 10-year lease while we were negotiating with Oakland officials), and it kind of put somebody right in the middle of things,” Davis said. “There isn’t much you can do. They’ve tied our hands behind our back.

“Now it’s up to the A’s to make a declaration of what they want to do. If they don’t do that, I don’t see how we can make a deal.”

 

Seems like Davis is getting impatient with A’s, who don’t seem like they are in a big rush to get a new stadium. It will be interesting to see how things turn out between the two.
