    I'm curious how someone who grew up in the East Bay becomes an all LA fan.

    while i thought you were done with this conversation, i will be happy to answer that.

    First of all i know a lot of people from the East Bay who aren't A's fans, there is nothing saying you have to like the local team. I was born in LA and lived in Long Beach until i was about 5 then my family moved to Milpitas which is where my dad grew up, we have lived in the bay area ever since, though i do have a lot of family from LA, and we would go back every summer and for Christmas etc, so i went to a lot of sporting events in LA, such as the lakers, raiders etc.

    lol winning did, because winning always does, which made the A's case to the commissioner look bad, i think that's why they refused to sell tickets up on the mountain in the playoffs.

    Well of course winning will sell more tickets, it's true of any team. Let us not forget that the A's still didn't draw too well when they were winning 100 games a year. But having more locals as fans would also sell more tickets. There are several factors that go into fan attendance: Winning, market demographics, stadium, local interest in the sport, stadium location, population density near the stadium, transportation, local competition, marketing, etc.

    You're entitled to your opinion, but there's no way to know if that was their real motive.
