What did they change to the coliseum when the raiders came back to oakland? i used to go to A's games when i was visiting out in cali. i remember it was a sweet stadium before they changed it but i haven't been to an A's game since then.

Part of the deal to bring Raider football back to Oaktown was the addition of more seats. They added a nose-bleed section nicknamed "Mt. Davis." I'll be sitting in the left wing of those $41 cheap seats in a coupla hours - cheapest ticks I've ever bought. Usually I pay $71 or $81. The Raiders were not allowed to market the ticks, and the deal went to a totally incompetent group called the Oakland Football Marketing Association (OFMA). They get millions to market the Raiders, but they don't advertise, set sky-high prices - I don't know what they do to earn their millions. Their web site is still advertising last year's games. The Raider GM sent me a few emails when I complained, but he said there is nothing they can do. They have to stay out of marketing by contract.
