This thing looks pretty cool:
The way MLBTR sees it, they may not be asking for public funding to build the stadium, only city leader assistance in acquiring the site. I'd guess they'd ask for tax incentives and infrastructure support as well.
If so, good for them and good for the city of Oakland. I know if this pans out my first thoughts would be based on jealousy in that my team's owner was able to gouge the tax payers for his stadium, but I'd be happy if the people of Oakland get a better deal. Frankly, that particular community has had more economic struggles than ours, they could use a break.
