OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 13: Oakland Athletics fans throw garbage onto the field after a reverse boycott game at RingCentral Coliseum on June 13, 2023 in Oakland, California. (Photo by Brandon Vallance/Getty Images)

On a day when the Nevada Senate approved $380 million in public funds for a new baseball stadium in Las Vegas, fans in Oakland organized a “Reverse Boycott” to show their support for the Athletics and their disapproval of (the worst) owner John Fisher. Despite the timing feeling particularly cruel, fans gathered in the Oakland Coliseum’s parking lot, wearing “SELL” T-shirts and making anti-Fisher signs. The game drew a crowd of 27,759, the largest of the season.

While the thought of a Major League baseball team being in Las Vegas is enticing, I gotta stick up for Northern California. My Sacramento Kings were almost shipped off to Seattle a couple of years back and thankfully the trash owners sold the team. While the A’s hopes look grim, there is still a chance that the billionaire scum will sell the team and/or keep them in Oakland.

After the final out, fans vented their frustrations by throwing objects onto the field. Naturally, losers on social media expressed their hate for people doing anything, seemingly lacking more fulfilling anything in their miserable lives. The primary problems concerning them centered around the notion that “The owner isn’t responsible for cleaning up the mess.” Now, I empathize with the individuals tasked with this cleanup duty, but it’s crucial to consider that if the owner were to sell the team, those very same individuals would find themselves very unemployed.
