City of Oakland Says Anyone, Including You, Can Submit A Coliseum Land Stadium Development Plan

The latest bit of news is an update from my previous post in a series on the matter of Ray Bobbitt’s African American Sports and Entertainment Group, and its endeavor to bring NFL Football back to Oakland. As you know, Ray’s group of black investors issued a formal bid for the Oakland Coliseum. Out of nowhere, came first Rick Tripp, then Floyd Kephart, to issue completing bids.

I was told that Oakland Councilmember Larry Reid played a role in getting both Rick and Floyd to the table. The problem is that both gentlemen have a checkered past in Oakland sports stadium development history. Kephart failed because, according to the City of Oakland, he did not have the capital he claimed to possess to start building a stadium for the Oakland Raiders. Rick Tripp could not provide proof his financing plan based on real-estate-transactions actually could work on paper or in the real world.

Now, an email to me from the City of Oakland said this:

Hey Zennie,

Technically yes, there’s nothing preventing you or anyone from submitting an unsolicited LOI to the City regarding the Coliseum site. However, the City still reserves the right to reject or dismiss any and all offers.

In other words, anyone, including you, can submit a plan or proposal. There’s no requirement for format or criteria, like how much capital you have, or anything. I do not believe this should be; there should be a website and a formal proposal format, and criteria.

This way looks too loosy-goosy for words. It leaves Oakland ripe for lawsuits and accusations of political impropriety.

Stay tuned.
