I have no problem with honest debate concerning the Oakland Athletics moving to San Jose, but honesty seems to be in short supply. Proponents of moving point to possible increases in corporate sponsorship or luxury box sales as being some kind of revenue panacea. This completely ignores the fact that the current trend for teams is to supplant those sources of revenue with ludicrous TV contracts. The main problem in the bay area is that *all* television media is centered in San Francisco. Both Oakland and San Jose have the exact same disadvantage, and to say otherwise is folly.
When Pro-SJ fans post their never-ending stream of propaganda on message boards, let’s call this out for what it truly is: anti-Oakland fetishism.
