The A's never filled their stadium.
You very wrong there, the A's use to be the Kings of the Bay Area. I remember being a kid in the 80's and that stadium was packed. It would be very loud and quite the place to be, at one point they were always near the attendace #s. Times changed, Mt. Davis was built, and ownership decided to gut the team and say they couldn't "make it" in Oakland. But, there was a time not that long ago the A's were on top and the Giants were the 2nd class citizen (before AT&T Park).
Sorry. Your memory is faulty. During most of the 80s, the A's averaged under 20,000 per game. They topped 30,000 per game in 89 and 90 but seating capacity at the time was over 48,000.
I stand by my statement.
So they never had a sellout in 89 when they won they won it all?
A single sellout? Who cares? The context is being KING. The Orioles sellout once every year. They are not kings of Baltimore. The Ravens are.
Here's the numbers: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/teams/athlatte.shtml
I am sorry I was at many of the games 87-mid 90's the A's were the team. Drew well over 2 million fans, 2nd team to pay a player big $$$ (R. Henderson). Things changed after the Raiders moved back and the family that owned the team sold to Schott and Fishher.
Okay. So feelings trump facts. Three years over 2 mil after and before decades of horrible attendance. Yup. THE team.
My Cincinnati Reds crushed the A's in the 1990 world series.
That A's team had like over half the American League All-Star team, lol.
No one thought the Reds would even win a game in that World Series, or even keep a game within less than 2-3 runs.
Four games later, sweep.
Reds outscored the A's something like 23-8 (runs), in all four games combined.
Haha, I live in Oregon and we have nothing. But its still better than the Orioles..
Back to PAC-12 please
I have the Pac-12 network on Cox cable, and so far its been pretty disappointing, the aspect ratio of the HD is way off, and video is very jittery. Its not on my end as both of my Tv's are displaying it the exact same way and when I adjust that channel to fix it, all of the other channels are messed up.
Could be a problem with Cox and not the network and i've asked Cox to look into it. (they'll probably want to send a tech out :hair:
Here's another article, courtesy of The San Francisco Examiner:
Im gonna go out on a limb and say... the channel will be in test by WEDNESDAY!!!
There was something in there I missed that prompted that tree climb?
Nothing in that article makes me think anything different about the situation. If the channel isn't added by the second weekend of games, then it will never be on DirecTV.
That if we get the channel, then the whole country can be bored to death by watching Cal vs Stanford?
I just tune in to watch the bands.
Thankfully, they show up early. :lol:
C'mon folks!! Let's be positive!! They are gonna work this out and sooner than later. These channels WILL come to the D.
My personal prediction is they will launch it on September 1st. I know it's an odd day being a Saturday, but that is college football day, so I'm sticking with it no matter how odd it may seem.
