OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Oakland Tribune picks Pac Bell #1 Sports Event
Does it bother anybody else that the local paper chose going to Pac Bell park is the #1 sports event out of 50.
It is called bad journalism.
The Oakland Tribune has become a friggin joke. Not the same paper I grew up with. Pretty pathetic when they continually give better coverage to West Bay teams over their own. Most of their writers suck too.
Lil, do you still have that Contra Costa Times article I let you borrow that polled East Bay residents asking them what sports events they had seen in a year.
I probably have it somewhere cheese. But I do remember when you gave it to me and you are right about that. I know I didn't throw it away and I have to do some filing of articles and columns such as those which I gathered along the course of time. If I find it I'll give it back to you.
We've written countless letters to the Trib, complaining about the A's coverage. If we wanted to read about the Giants, we'd order the Chron. This makes me sick.Aren't there ANY true fans of the A's writing for a paper?!
The sad part is, the Chronicle gives better coverage to the A's. Carl Steward this a.m., has written a marvelous column on Tejada and his contract. I sent him email complimenting him, but also took advantage of the opportunity to let him know that I'd like to see more A's coverage, being very disappointed in their coverage of the A's and the fact I often feel I'm reading the Chronicle. Anyway, for what it's worth.
dorrit, peep the CC times. it's pretty much 50-50 Gnats-A's but relative to other papers that's as good as it's gonna get. Trib's been whack as crack every since they were acquired by ANG.
World War III could be started but if Bonds hits a HR the Mercury will have him on the front page!
Classic! You guys complain and whine about getting your lack of press coverage! From what I read, I think that most people must agree that going to a Giants game at Pac Bell is the number 1 attraction in the Bay Area and going to an A's game ranks much further down the list. You need only look at relative attendance figures to see that the Oakland Tribune is correct. But leave it to you A's fans to assume that everyone is out to get you, you don't get a fair shake, etc. etc. Let's face it folks, only a handful of people like you care a lick about the pitiful travails of your franchise.

A hand full of us you bet...very pitiful travails indeed...
Seattle must be awfully boring...
If we're so pathetic and pitiful, what the hell does that make the guy that hangs around and bothers us all day?
