Official 2016 San Francisco Giants Season Thread - NLDS (3-1 CHC) Congrats Chicago Cubs! - Page 35
My bad, just trying to start some friendly banter. I'll stay out of this thread from now on, I realize I'm not welcome. You guys will be alright, your division is buns.
Peace in the middle east.
I dont mind friendly banter. I have just come to realize that most of the time, A's fans are bitter Giants haters. No problem though. If you want to come in and be friendly thats fine.
As far as friendly banter goes....here goes mine....
You have some nerve to call the NL West buns. Not only is YOUR division god awful, but your division has been the easiest division in the Major Leagues to win since 1994. Three of the five teams in the AL West are at least SIX games under .500....which is the only division in the Major Leagues that is true for.
Answer that and I'll understand where we stand.
Even when the A's had a popular run, the fact was, hardly a SF Giant fan cared. By cared, I mean, throwing salt or being bitter. In fact, at least out of those I knew or went to college with, we'd support the A's.
I wanted the A's to beat detroit and boston. I didn't want Terrance Long to be the last out and the image of him standing in the box w/ three pitches going by and the bat not leaving his shoulder is still vivid.
That's why I called it a complex earlier. It's very one sided, in my opinion,.
If the Giant's are in contention and the a's are, most Giants fans either:
a) don't care
b) would root for the a's because it's the bay area
There's a minority of Giants fans who "hate" the A's. Using myself and my friends, people I grew up with since I moved, this has been my experience. It is NOT at all like the Cubs/White Sox fans. They hate each other and you hardly will find someone who likes both. Even when the White Sox won the series, Cubs fans were bitter.
My reasons for hating the Giants (and really, I'm speaking essentially only to it's front office) are much different from another A's fans reason, I suspect. I guess I just resent the notion that A's fans are this bitter lot that are envious of the Giants fans. Jealous of AT&T Park? Absolutely, it's one of the best in baseball, according to people who would know. Of their history? I'd rather have the A's past, thank you.
I've been to Dodger Stadium when the Giants were playing there, they definitely weren't popping off. Most were sticking together and being careful with eye contact **** is wild in LA.
Everytime I walk through the coliseum I always get some loud mouth in my face telling me about the 4 WS that he didn't witness
