We all know the Giants have the superior fan base right now
It wasn't always like this.. I remember rubber saying it was the opposite in the past, the A's had everything and the Giants had nothing.
What annoys the hell out of me is the Giants would've moved out of California if it weren't for the A's giving them the territorial rights(for free). Im not saying I wanted them to move, but I hate that the Giants won't help us out now.. So annoying
If the A's ever get a new stadium in San Jose (they probably won't) fan attendance would probably be the same as the Giants. Look at the Giants attendance numbers before and after their new stadium.
Giants average attendance 5 years before AT&T opened
Numbers are pretty similar to the A's today, who averaged 22k i think
And when Pacbell/AT&T opens
Sadly Bud Selig doesn't give 2 s**ts about the A's and basically ignores the issue. Been going on for what, 4 years? And still has the same answer. he wants the Giants and A's to solve it themselves and says he shouldn't be part of it. He's the f**king commissioner of the league, if the issue hasn't been resolved in 4 years.. do something dip s**t
My point is it isn't about the fans not caring about the A's, its that the general public would rather go to a nice park like AT&T rather than that garbage dump stadium in oakland. I won't even argue that the A's have a superior or equal fan base to the A's right now in the bay. Sadly, its not even close..
