Who Roots for Whom and Why

America’s Sports Fans and Their Teams: Who Roots for Whom and Why is an enlightening read into sports fandom. Sid Groeneman surveyed American sports fans to determine why fans choose to align the way they do. It’s no surprise that geography has a lot to do with it. In fact, 77% of sports fans chose their favorite team because at some point they lived near that team. After that, the next largest reason is the family tradition. Continue reading

SFC's Statement on President Trump's Comments

The heated conversation this season isn't who got traded to whom; it's about taking a knee. Ever since Colin Kaepernick took his knee last season and subsequently blacklisted, fans and players have been defending his constitutional right.

The team’s desired spot is a choice chunk of land in central Oakland, overlooking beautiful Lake Merritt and right next to Laney College. Actually getting the land will require convincing its owner — the Peralta Community College District — to sell, as well as getting the city of Oakland to help out with infrastructure upgrades. But, for the A’s, all that trouble may be very much worth it. The team is going to privately fund its new stadium, and it believes the Peralta location is its best bet to do so. Continue reading

Danifesto: It's Been a Rough Week for Snyder

Coming off a loss to the Eagles last week, Dan Snyder continued to lose when the Danifesto hit DMV. Fans across the region began to express how they really felt about the owner of the Washington's NFL team. Continue reading

A Bipartisan Defense of Fans

Congratulations, Cleveland
