“Oakland Needs A Football Team” Says Raiders John Madden’s Wife Virginia At Coliseum Celebration
And she is right.
This is written in large letters for all to see and memorize.
OAKLAND DOES NEED A FOOTBALL TEAM.
OAKLAND HAS LARGE SCALE EVENT CENTERS, BUT NEEDS TO UPGRADE THEM.
– OAKLAND COLISEUM STADIUM LAST UPGRADE WAS 1995 FOR OAKLAND RAIDERS, THAT WAS 28 YEARS AGO.
– OAKLAND COLISEUM ARENA WAS REBUILT FOR GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS IN 1998, THAT WAS 25 YEARS AGO.
– THE OAKLAND ATHLETICS STILL DON’T HAVE A NEW BALLPARK, AND THE PLANNED HOWARD TERMINAL FACILITY IS STILL BEHIND SCHEDULE.
– OAKLAND DOES NOT HAVE A TRUE, LARGE, CONVENTION CENTER OF 1 MILLION SQUARE FEET, AND SEEMS TO WANT TO LEAVE THE CONVENTION BUSINESS TO SAN FRANCISCO.
OAKLAND HAS A SHORTAGE OF HOTEL ROOMS TO HOUSE CONVENTION GOERS.
“Oakland keeps making these lists of cities where hotel demand far outstrips the supply,” said Mark Everton, general manager of Oakland’s Waterfront Hotel. “We’ve seen a nice upsurge for demand in Oakland in general and with Salesforce putting compression on (San Francisco), we get a lot of that (business).”
Oakland must build. And not wait for a team to create a stadium, just plain build one. We’re short and need upgrades and can do it, if we want to. Along the way we will create thousands of jobs that have left Oakland with the Raiders and Warriors. Are the A’s next?
Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the YouTube video search for “oakland athletics” videos causes the uploads of video, which is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
