The lesson, as always:

Fark Bud Selig with a red hot fire poker.

I'm so glad the courts are finally involved, and those bumbling idiots Lew Wolff and Bud Selig can be shoved out of the way for people who know what they're doing.  Everything I've read about this Cotchett guy is positive, but I wouldn't even care if we had the lawyer from Idiocracy fighting for us; as it stands, Cotchett and San Jose are the first people with both clout and cojones to stand up for the A's in roughly two decades.

Fark Bud Selig.  Fark the giants.

That_Dude: PowerSlacker: Lifeless: TheJoe03: Fark the Giants.

For defending their business interests? Please.


Of course Selig farking dodged this. It's the weakest leg the Reserve Clause has to stand on. Blaming the Giants for not giving the territory up for free is like blaming Gary Bettman for Hamilton's retarded stadium plan.

The Giants chose not to build their stadium in San Jose.  They have no right to keep Oakland from moving there.  The Bay Area is plenty big enough to support two properly located teams.

Yeah, but Oakland still gave San Francisco the rights to San Jose.  Since this happened before the tech boom, Oakland yelling about getting screwed over is like a person giving their friend some land they don't want, then clamoring to get it back once oil is found on the land.


Oakland never gave San Francisco permanent rights to San Jose.

Selig said: "In 1990 when Bob Lurie wanted to move the Giants to San Jose, Walter Haas, the wonderful owner of the Oakland club, who did things in the best interest of baseball, granted permission. What got lost there is, they didn't feel it was permission in perpetuity. He gave Bob permission to go down there. Unfortunately or fortunately, it never got changed."

MLB will lose this court battle, should it go that far.

the bigger issue here for me is that no one seems to want to act in the best interests of the game, which is something a commisioner might want to look at now and again, particularly if popularity of your game is dwindling.

Yes, they're being dicks. I guess the South Bay jacked Frisco's football team, so I'm going to enjoy calling them the Santa Clara 9ers.

Peter von Nostrand: I've tried real hard to give a fark about this NorCal slap fight but just can't. Grow up and figure it out


Apparently, MLB doesn't give a fark, either.
