The Oakland Alameda County Coliseum JPA and Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) are trying to put the best face on a bad situation. With the Golden State Warriors set to play at the new Chase Center Arena in Mission Bay, the Oracle Arena name was taken off of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena two weeks ago. But now, it’s called “Oakland Arena”. Here’s the press release:
