SLOW MOTION: CSNBAYAREA.com's Scott Bair reported Raiders Owner Mark Davis met with Colony Capital within the last two weeks "about developing a long-sought, state-of-the art football stadium." The meetings about the possibility of a Coliseum City project have been "long, but Davis generally leaves with a sense that progress of some kind has been made." Davis: "All the talks we have with them are positive, but there’s no progress after the talks" (CSNBAYAREA.com, 6/19).
FURTHER REVIEW: In DC, Michael Neibauer reported local officials have issued an RFP "for a consultant to perform a detailed review of all aspects of the intricate deal" between the District, D.C. United and landowners regarding a new MLS stadium. The report will be due to the DC Council by Sept. 12, "but the RFP suggests the consultant's contract will last 'up to one year.'" DC Mayor Vincent Gray and DC United "want the stadium legislation passed out of the council before the end of the year, when Gray leaves office" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 6/18).
SPRUNG A LEAK: Marlins President David Samson on Wednesday said that Marlins Park "had no damage after heavy rain Tuesday caused the roof to leak." The storm "produced around 2.5 inches of water per hour along with winds at 53 mph" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 6/19).
