This should serve as a vital lesson to all of us, don't ever let anyone tell you there's a surplus or logjam at any position and that platooning is a bad idea.
SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Some of the A's fans that I've encountered seem to like hating the Giants more than they enjoy watching the A's.
How much money did the A's invest in San Jose before they gave it away and how much have the Giants invested since? Serious question. I don't know the answer.
A few things....
One....I too would really hate to see them leave the Bay Area. I love baseball and when the A's are in the playoffs, not only do I try to go to a game or two, I actually root for them.
Two....The Giants are trying to "force the A's out of the Bay Area?" Can you provide a link? I know we are trying to prevent them from moving to San Jose, but I have never once read anything that says the Giants want them gone completely. I think them building a new stadium in the East Bay would be more than fine. But hey, if you can show me something that proves otherwise, I am all ears.
And three....fans of the Oakland A's have hated the Giants and our fans FAR before this whole stadium thing has happened. So while that MAY be the case that YOU hate the Giants strictly because they are blocking the A's from moving to San Jose, please dont act as if that is the primary reason A's fans hate the Giants/fans. Because it has been going on for far longer than this stadium debate has.
Why I hate Giants' fans:
I hated how, back in the early 2000's, Giants' fans were more concerned about bragging about how many HR's Bonds was hitting as opposed to the concern they had about their team winning games.
I hate how all of these Giants' "fans" appeared out of nowhere around October 20, 2010 and again around October 20, 2012. These people don't watch baseball, don't watch a lick of baseball, but feel that they have "bragging rights" over legit A's fans. Like... you think you're so cool because you conveniently started rooting for a local baseball team when they were up 2-0 in the World Series? Then they have the nerve to claim that the Giants' are their team. Sorry, but you don't have a team. You don't watch baseball.
But most of all, I currently hate EVERYTHING about the Giants' organization because they are cock-blocking the A's from getting a ballpark in Santa Clara County.
I don't like the city of San Francisco. I think it's dirty, and I hate the hills.
If it were up to me, the Warriors would get the new Niners' arena in Santa Clara, and the Niners would get the Warriors' future arena.
Of course more people go to Giants' games when they're playing poor. Why? Because they have a nice ballpark and these corporations buy out the seats. Their park is like Staples Center during Lakers' games... 60% of the people there don't know **** about what they're watching, they're just there so they can tell Carol and Steve that they went to the game last night.
