Sharks don't want A's in San Jose Downtown

Article from Mercury News, "Ballpark impact analysis elicits many complaints"

Many in San Jose including Sharks Officials complained that a downtown ballpark will make transportation, traffic, and parking crazy, and want San Jose city officials to re-evaluate their $700,000 analysis of the area. San Jose would be a great place for a ball team, but it seems that many citizens of San Jose and businesses question a ballpark, for various reasons; transportation, traffic, parking, etc. being some of them. The citizens San Jose would also have to vote on a ballpark unlike Fremont, which can by-pass a vote. Also keep in mind that the Giants do have territorial rights in San Jose and moving any team to that area would mean dealing with Selig, who has said numerous times that he is against challenging the Giants. A ballpark in San Jose seems even less likely than one in Oakland.

Also an article was written today by Dave Newhouse, who reiterated Oakland Mayor candidates opinions on the A's stadium situation.

Thank goodness that the Sharks and other residents of San Jose are oppose to a ballpark there. I wish this story got more press. Those boosters in San Jose might not having a good day after reading this story. Also Drummer, follow up story about the mayoral candidates are good to read their opinions.

Sooner or later, San Jose citizens are going to get awfully PO'd that the city is spending so much effort to get a stadium even though BOTH the A's and MLB say that it's not going to happen.

Now, between not trusting Bud Selig and Lew Wolff's San Jose connections, we here in "blogland" know the story isn't over. However, your average SJ resident doesn't care about "reading tea leaves" and would rather see realistic ideas about redeveloping Downtown.

Amazing that San Jose residents have a lot of the same concerns that Oaklanders do?
