OaklandAthletics2013-Apr13vTigers-30I’m super surprised that I did not see this usage of one of my photos until recently considering I actually follow this website!  SFGate used one of my many photos from the Coliseum in an opinion piece about Aramark, the former concessions vendor, not backing up it’s staff during rowdy Oakland Raider games.  I’ve never been to a Raider game; this photo was taken during baseball season at an Oakland Athletics game, but it’s still iconic of the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Complex.

Fans get drunk in the parking lot before games and become unruly once inside, Robinson said. “It’s not a safe environment to be working at an Oakland Raider game.” He added a belief Oakland PD is nearly non-existent at games, especially on the second deck above the infamous “Black Hole.”
