On Dec. 17, the San Francisco Chronicle's Matier and Ross reported that Oakland A's Owner and Managing General Partner Lew Wolff was intending to meet with representatives of a proposed developer of a Southern California real estate company to discuss the A's interest in "a new coliseum deal".

For the record, Mr. Wolff never commented on any meeting and was not contacted to verify any reference to a meeting.  

"We are only prepared to meet with our landlord, the JPA, or elected and designated officials of Alameda County and the City of Oakland, to discuss any aspect of our venue or lease," Wolff said.
