A's co-owner Lew Wolff says team won't be affected by Raiders news
Lew Wolff, co-owner of the Oakland Athletics, went on record recently as saying "it would be nice to know" the fate of the Oakland Raiders.
The A's share O.co Coliseum with the Raiders, of course, and this week's big NFL news that the St. Louis Rams will move to Los Angeles with the San Diego Chargers having an option to join them in L.A. leaves the Raiders' fate up in the air yet again.
Will Mark Davis keep the Raiders in Oakland long-term regardless of this setback? And if so, where will they play?
Will the Raiders continue to share the Coliseum with the A's, or would a new facility be an option? All of these questions have yet to be answered, but Wolff issued a statement on Tuesday essentially saying that the Raiders news won't affect the A's decision-making about their own search for a long-term home:

Tuesday's news was a major development for the NFL and the teams involved, but (yet again) it leaves the A's in the same limbo they've been in for quite some time now.
