Ray Ratto commented on the A's broadcast the other night that neither the 49ers nor the A's would be able to raise the money to complete their proposed stadiums. This is certainly true as it pertains to the A's. There is not going to be public monies to support a new A's stadium in the Bay Area, or any where else for that matter, due to the economy. And private money is not going to invest the 100's of millions required for such a new stadium, realizing that it is a losing proposition. Hopefully the A's owners will catch on to this and change their direction. The A's will be in Oakland in this stadium for many years. So get rid of Lew Wolff and his inane commitment to a new stadium as the number 1 priority of management. Bring on a new lead owner who repudiates Lew's past, and commits to a winning baseball team in Oakland. Commit again to rebuilding a fan base in Oakland. It's the only logical strategy. How long will it take ownership to realize that?
