        • MLB unanimously votes for the A’s to relocate to Vegas. However, current stadium plans do not have their new stadium being completed until 2027, and their lease runs out after this year in Oakland. Initial plans include rotating home games at the Giants stadium in San Francisco and their current AAA affiliate in Vegas.

            At that point just play in the AAA stadium; the lack of tickets will pique interest. Playing in SF will accomplish jack ****.

            • I love how we've reached a point where it's acceptable for "Major" franchises to play out of "minor" facilities (A's and Coyotes).

              Sonner or later this bubble is gonna burst.

              • Teams have played in smaller or worse environments before as part of expansion or relocation. The Titans/Oilers had a plan to play in Memphis for two years at the Liberty Bowl because it was a bigger stadium, but Memphis got such low attendance they played at Vanderbilt which only sat 40k for their second year before their stadium was built. The Pilots stadium was terrible their first season in Seattle (maybe not the best example since it played a part in their move to Milwaukee).

                The Coyotes are an extreme case because that's a team that was kicked out of their stadium and is still staying in the same media market without a plan. The A’s are also a bit of an extreme example in that the move has been approved and the stadium plans are technically approved but there are a lot of fights coming, so at this point I’d say they still don’t have a concrete deal in place.


                As an aside, I’ve seen a lot of talk of how it’s unfair to pull Oakland’s team away. And while the circumstances of how it’s happening is awful, if there’s a franchise that has to move, it’s the A’s. Their time in Oakland only just surpassed the time they were in Philly before moving to KC. Why not move the franchise that’s already moved twice before? It’s part of their lore now. Set the clock at 50 years and they can move from Vegas to Portland or Mexico City or whatever the new hot sports town will be in 2070.

                And the ironic thing is they’re only in this position because they tried to help the Giants, who probably have the most “what ifs” for relocation of any MLB franchise. The two closest attempts were Toronto before the city of SF filed a restraining order to keep them and then the Blue Jays were awarded as an expansion franchise soon after. Later they had a deal signed to move to St Petersburg and the NL voted it down for whatever reason. So with Candlestick being awful, the A’s said the Giants could have San Jose for territory to help with a new stadium. Of course, SF ended up building downtown, but kept San Jose as part of their territorial rights, so when Oakland wanted to move there a few years back, the Giants nixed those plans claiming encroachment.

                    I saw someone on Reddit claim the Athletics should have to change their name because the A’s are Oakland’s franchise. C’mon now. It sucks they’re leaving but if the Athletics name belonged to stay anywhere it was Philadelphia where Connie Mack was the franchise until the last few years before they moved.

                        When the NY football Giants announced they were moving to the Meadowlands, NYC kicked them out of Yankee Stadium immediately. They had to play for two years at Yale.

                          Wasn’t it because Yankee Stadium was being rebuilt? Didn’t everyone, Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, play at Shea one year?

                            A bit of both. Yankee stadium was to be closed for a couple of years, so the Giants were only going to be able to play there through’73, but I think NYC limited the Giants to just a few games there that season after the announcement was made.
                            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                            • The Giants played their games in Connecticut, at the Yale Bowl, in '73 and '74. After playing their first two games at Yankee Stadium they headed for Yale for the rest of the 1973 season, played all 7 home games there in 1974, and then shared Shea with the Mets and the Jets in 1975.

                                Let's just bring back the classic barnstorming teams from 100 years back, except the team is in MLB. No, I don't have any earthly idea how that would actually work in practice.
