    Oakland Athletics, staying or going?

    There is much debate over the future of the A's in Oakland, that has implications for the Raiders as well. The club wants a new field they don't have to share with a football team.

    I personally believe the A's will stay and the Raiders leave. I know Oakland fans are going to kill me for saying this but it doesn't make sense to have two football teams in the Bay Area...it barely makes sense for two MLB teams there.

    What are California sports fans thoughts? and IF the Athletics move where will they go?

    They are here to stay for this year at least but they need to go out and get one more SP.

    Unless they get a new stadium I think they move.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 49-62, games this week vs. Cardinals (3), Angels (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.

    It seems like this comes up way too much.

    The Bay Area is the smallest two team area in the country.

    The Raiders can leave whenever they want. They're on a year to year lease. If their latest stadium attempt doesn't pan out, they'll either go share with the 49ers or move to Los Angeles.

    The best place for the A's is obviously San Jose but the Giants have a say in that.

    Here is what I have heard and read=

    Wolff wants to move the team to San Jose but thats the Giants turff, and they aint havin it.

    The city of Oakland offered up a nice parcel of land on the waterfront for Wolff to build a new stadium, and even found a foreign investor to pay for it, but Wolff ain havin it.
