OAKLAND (KCBS) – The Oakland A’s have rejected a deal to play at the Coliseum, after being offered a 10-year lease extension by the Oakland Coliseum Authority.
Late Tuesday night, team officials released the following statement. “The A’s received the Oakland-Alameda County Authority’s proposal earlier this afternoon. While the proposal was for 10 years, it did not address all of our issues. Consequently, we cannot accept the terms of the offer. We have tried to negotiate in good faith for the past several months. As the Authority knows, it is still our preference not to negotiate this agreement through the media.”
