    Yes, and also Golden State fans.

    I am a sports fan who is a fan of 2 sports radio shows. They talk about sports topics and they take phone calls from passionate sports fans. If you are interested to call their sports radio shows than feel free. Call their morning show, and the afternoon show at 704-332-0173. It is Monday to Friday, 7am ET to 9:55am ET. Also, 3pm ET to 6:55pm ET. They would talk about any sports topics of your choice, and also if you have questions in sports or anything in general, feel free to call them.

    You could call in another sports radio show Monday to Friday at 12pm ET to 12:55pm ET, 502-571-1080. They would talk about any sports topics of your choice, and also if you have questions in sports or anything in general, feel free to call them.

    The Bay Area still has the SF Giants, SF 49ers, SF Warriors, San Jose Sharks, and the San Jose Earthquakes. The A's do not draw a lot of fans. Even during their world championship days in the 1970s, they often drew about a million fans or less per season. The Giants draw bigger crowds ever since they built their downtown stadium. Currently, the most loyal fans are probably Warriors fans, followed by the Sharks, 49es, and Giants. The Raider fans are not very loyal.

    The Raiders had trouble selling out the stadium after they returned to Oakland in the 1990s. Many Raiders fans (me included) had switched to supporting the 49ers after the Raiders moved to LA in the 1980s. The Raiders had to draw new fans. I did not root for them at all. In fact, I am happy when they lose and happy to see them leave.  In fact the Raiders covered up a section of the stadium with tarp to reduce capacity. That section was built for a lot of money to lure the Raiders back. They did not always sell out their stadium and there were often local blackouts until the courts ruled that those blackouts were not legal.

    Raider fans were the most loyal fans in the bay area the city let them down. The mayor of Oakland does not care about football and because of that she will soon lose the A's just like how she lost the warriors. It's a shame a mayor can destroy Oakland's whole economy in such a short term. Once she is replaced expect the them to get another football team through expansion or the Raiders moving back.

    The A's stadium is typically on filled on average to 40% capacity and consistently are at the bottom of the league attendance numbers so I'm not sure how they can be considered that loyal. Yes, they aren't a good team, but their loyal followers are lacking.  

    Of course, the Giants still average 90% capacity with about twice as many fans per game.  Sure they have a better stadium and location, but we're talking season average not just a few random games.  Likewise, the Sharks are near 100% capacity for, well, decades.

    Maybe, but they're also a rather old franchise...
