Pay no mind to his antics as he is totally ignorant of Oakland, his own words condemn him.
you're "backing people into corners" online now? lol look at what i did to your life. days have passed and you're still emotionally affected by my words. this is what i did to you. you're a nobody to me, that's why i laughed at your demands. you = a nobody. that's why your demands went ignored.

but how you liking the warriors leaving your 2nd class city? hahahahhahha

people across the country know san francisco. good or bad opinions, but they know the city. more importantly, nba players know the city.
higher profile. better location. better city. hate it or love it ladies

I can actually see this move drawing more attention to the franchise overall. I don't see it as a bad thing. Whatever they are doing in Oakland is simply not working, so change is good.

How on earth can anyone claim Oakland has been "bad to the Warriors." considering the fans have been coming out to support a crappy product for 20 years.

The Warriors owe it to the Bay Area to put up a quality team that has a winning record and make the playoffs occasionally.

Moving to SF isn't some sort of panacea that will "save the team." The only saving will happen in the personnel office.

again, people making the mistake that people in oakland were supporting the team since they moved. from the times i was unfortunate enough to take bart to that awful coliseum bart station, i noticed tons and tons of people getting on bart going south to san leandro, hayward, uc, fremont etc.
and you're right, they owe it to the bay area, not oakland to build a good team. part of this is moving the team to the best city in the bay area. if oakland fans were so great they'd also be packing the coliseum for A's games, but they don't. warriors have tons of fans because they're the 'golden state' warriors and not the oakland warriors

That's true. When I was attending home games during the "We Believe" season, I'd say more than half the people headed for the BART trains after the game instead of the parking lots. That shows me a large majority of the crowd were out of towners, not people living in Oakland.

Your point about the "Oakland A's" attendance versus the "Golden State" Warriors attendance is also interesting to consider.

A's management should just cover more seats with tarps at A's games and only make 5k seats available on game days. Instant sell outs.
