How far are you willing to let the A's go?



The responses to the Contraction posting yesterday got me thinking. Many people expressed their feelings that they'd root for the A's no matter where they moved, IF they moved, rather than the team being contracted. Others did not care if they were contracted or move as it was seen as the same basic fate as far as they were concerned and won't root for them if they leave the Bay Area. Others are of course the oft discussed "Oakland Only" partisans. I'm curious how far people are willing to go to root for the A's if the A's move farther away.

 

I know for me personally it's the Bay Area or bust option. I consider the A's home to be the Bay Area as a whole regardless of what some MLB brass hat says. But if they were to leave the Bay Area I'd be done with them, but I'm curious what others thoughts on the issue are...
