Some people have short attention spans or need to qualify their lies, using terms like for the past 3 years, since 1999, in recent memory, or some bull like that.

The Bay Area in no way shape or form is the worst sports city or region.

NFL: Bay Area teams have a total of 8 superbowls. (more than any city or region in the country)
MLB: The Giants have an All-time record: 10184-8724 (.539) (most wins in MLB history) and 5 world series titles, The A's have 9 world series titles.
NBA: Warriors have 3 championships.
NCAA: Cal-Berkeley and Stanford field some of the most competative individuals and/or teams that have won literally hundreds of national championships in dozens of sports, including in the olympics.

Kings over Bulls and Sharks over Hawks, two nights in a row. It feels good to beat such a pompous city twice.

Oh yeah, and MLS Cup 2003 over the Fire. That was really good.

Bay area?
The 49ers fans most certainly do care what's put out there and the SF Giants fans do as well. Beside that, both the 49ers and the Raiders individually have had more success than the Bears at winning championships since the NFL merger (Raiders have only existed since 1960) so....who should be run out of town?

Superbowl victories:
Raiders 3
49ers 5
Bears 1

You would have also been better off picking on the Giants who have won zero World Series while in San Francisco. But the As?

Oakland A's 4 World Series titles while in Oakland (since 1968)
Cubs 2 (since horse and buggy days, zero since 1968)
White Sox 3 (since 1901, 1 since 1968)

If Chicago had any team with 4 World series titles since 1960, I sincerely doubt they would run them out of town.

Since you are ripping on the Warriors, I hope you are not a Bulls fan.

LOL cali haters get out of here. The Raiders and Niners are top 5 football franchises ever. Giants and A's are both respectable, although the A's have gone downhill the last few years. The Warriors are a joke but I don't care, I'm a Kings fan. The Sharks are great. Go pick on somewhere else. Cincinati anyone? No basketball team, but the last time the Bengals really did anything in the playoffs, Boomer was playing behind center, and the Reds are a joke every year.

As a lifelong A's fan I feel the need to point out the Giants have NEVER won a championship in SF and never will . But there are many cities that are much worse sports cities than the Bay Area, San Diego and Miami come to mind as cities that are definitely worse sports towns. Several teams have had lots of past success with winning championships, mainly the 49ers, A's, and Raiders. For how crappy the Warriors have been for a while they have great fans and pretty good attendance overall, just really bad management/decisions. When they made the playoffs a few seasons ago they had the highest average ticket price in the entire NBA and the arena couldn't be louder. Plenty of other cities are worse sports town.

Yup you are right, the Warriors are pretty crappy but they have a very loyal fan base here. When the Warriors made it the playoffs back in 07 it was insane here......many sports announcers kept commenting how they have never seen witness a NBA crowd so intense.

Yes, yes of course, by all means fixate on your one sentence that wasn't negative while bypassing all the other negative BS you wrote in there. There's an effective way to refute my point!

And once again you try and divert attention from the actual point here by suddenly playing topic-nazi. If only you'd take your own advice when the Bay Area doesn't need to be brought up.

Just b/c you said something positive about the only part of CA that you've deemed worthwhile (as you've explained in another thread), doesn't negate the fact that you have a hard on for CA and most particularly the Bay Area. Are you actually going to try and deny that the Bay Area doesn't occupy your thoughts for the majority of the time you spend on your posts here on C-D?? LOL go ahead and try, but the rest of us all know how full of it you are.

How about you call us when the raiders can actually acheive not having a homegame blacked out, or when the A's sell out one home game in which the Yankees or Boston do not come to town.

Bulls made the play offs last year(4 times this decade) by the way, how about the warriors?

And how about the Sharks(1st place regular season), lost to the anaheim mighty ducks(8th place) in the first round...WOW.
Doesn't look like I need to respond to any of this since everyone else already put you in your place. Consider yourself OWNED! Lol.
