What you are saying couldn't be further from the truth. IF you live in the East Bay like I do, a simple shot down 880 is much easier than getting across the bay to SSF. Anyone coming from the Stockton area can just as easily go south instead of getting across the bay and then up to SSF. If SF residents can't drive the 40 minutes like the rest of us have been doing all our lives, then maybe it's their fanhood that should be questioned.
As far as easy parking, it's way more than just that. Despite the fact that it is just a huge open space already waiting for something to be built on it, almost every single public transportation already goes right to the doorstep. I can literally walk 1/4 mile from my house and take a train there. It would take years and years just to come up with plans to get SF going, let alone getting them approved and voted on and built.
I couldn't care less about the city of SC. I'm SF all the way, but they are the ones screwing us here with their lack of serious effort to make something happen. I've had season tickets for over a decade and I'm tired of my same ol' broken seat with thin metal armrests that don't have a cup holder. When do people start to realize that we as fans deserve a better place to watch our team play?
