>Sacramento Kings should've moved to Seattle
>Oakland Raiders should've moved to Los Angeles (what the fuck? The NFL really fucking gave up two great markets in St. Louis and most likely San Diego to keep a 2nd team in Northern California)
>A's should move to Portland
What the fuck?
Pennsylvania has the same population as Northern California and has less teams (7 in the big 4 sports in NoCal vs. 6 in PA).
Why hasn't anyone fixed this? The Raiders definitely should move. And so should the A's
The way the NBA conducted the Sacramento Kings relocation is borderline collusion
They gave Sacramento a shot that Seattle never really fucking had even though the Kings are 88 miles away from Oakland. The nearest team to Seattle plays more than 150 miles away in a MUCH MUCH smaller city
I want Whinerland to lose all their fucking teams. Fucking Mexicans don't deserve shit.
I live in shit hile california.
>90s everybody is a bulls fan
>00 omg guys kings competed with lakers
>bulls jerseys transform into kings jerseys
>2016 golden state jerseys everywhere
>no sign of kings
>nobody could decide giants or A's
>go figure everybody a giants fan today
>49ers fans only come out if the team is winning every 3/20 years
>raiders fans only legit fans in nor cal
I seriously hope all these teams leave this fucking armpit.aside from cheaper cost of living, this region is boring and flyover state tier
>2 of them were won in LA
Fucking moron. Not to mention most Raider fans live in SoCal
Stay mad, PNW faggot hipster.
You can have the Raidniggers though.
THREE YEARS LATER AND COUNTING, AND YOU ARE STILL THIS MAD
that's not what that map means anon, it's just that in the red counties, the niners have a stronger presence than the raiders. the black ones are counties where the niners presence is weak enough that the raiders can be number one. there's still a lot of raiders fans in norcal, it's just a matter of pecking order in each region. same thing with how the jets have no counties on that map, it doesn't mean they have no fans, they're just not the #1 team anywhere.
Professional sports teams are just businesses. They are motivated by money, not fairness. If there's more money to be made somewhere else, they will go there. Otherwise they stay.
Arguing about fairness based on geography or population means nothing if there's no economic incentive (read: worth the effort) for a team to relocate to >your city.
If you don't like it, why stay? I mean it's not like rent/housing is cheap... you could save money by moving somewhere you'd presumably like better anyway.
I hear Texas and Oregon love California transplants, they'd be happy to take you in.
>Why hasn't anyone fixed this?
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ the bay area has a shit ton of huge companies with a lot of money. corporate sponsorship is the most important thing to sport franchises
There's a reason why the A's and Raiders are worth the least amount of money
The NBA had very little to do with the kings relocation saga.
The maloofs and Chris hansen fucked that up so hard the NBA had to side with Sacramento. If the maloofs woulda just went to sell when trying to move the team the first time Seattle would probably have them now. Instead they dicked around the city for years and gave them time to put together a comprehensive counteroffer. If they sided with the maloofs after all the shit they turned down by the end of it they could kiss any chance of getting public money from any NBA city goodbye.
