Can someone fill me in since I moved to CA in 1993/4...why do the A's have such a complex with the Giants? Is it a big brother (market) / little brother thing?

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.  laugh.gif  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.

The condescension here is amusing.

I have a question: is it the opinion of most of you here that the Giants have ALWAYS been the more popular team in the Bay Area? It's obvious that's what they are now. But do you believe that was always the case?

Answer that and I'll understand where we stand.

No, but let's take it a step further.

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,.

I support both Bay Area Baseball teams


I agree, It is very one sided
post #1031 of 9786
So it's in your estimation that the Giants fans have been gracious and supportive when the A's have done well and the A's fans haven't returned that support during this current elite run the Giants are on?

What I'm saying is -

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.

I can understand your POV. I can think of a few Giants fans who are openly disrespectful of the A's, but know so many more who are supportive. And this is not a rivalry, I agree. The teams have had nothing to fight for since neither reside in the same city (which escapes most outsiders trying to understand why Bay Area teams don't generally dislike one another).

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 laugh.gif **** is wild in LA.
