A’s reject 10-year Coliseum lease offer

OAKLAND, Calif. The Oakland As have rejected a deal to play at the Oakland Coliseum for the foreseeable future, saying the offer of a 10-year lease extension did not meet all their requirements.
The Oakland Tribune reports the teams rejection came just an hour after the joint board that runs the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex announced the extension proposal.
Team spokesman Bob Rose released a statement that the 10-year deal did not address all of our issues and asked that future lease negotiations not be played out in public.
Specifics of the lease proposal were not disclosed.
The lease expires after the 2015 season.
The As have been searching for a new home for five years, complaining that O.co Coliseum is dilapidated and not conducive to baseball.
