The A’s Get No Respect In Oakland, And Deserve None Either

They have tried to bully Oakland even after Oakland told the NFL to take a hike. Owner John Fisher doesn’t exist as an ethereal face of venality without the power to achieve actual evil, and his spokesman, Dave Kaval, is mostly a shouty carnival barker trying to lure people inside his company’s tent with rancid popcorn and flat beer. Fisher is a trout-impersonating failson whose only tactical play is, “Yeah, but I’m me, so get lost,” and Kaval is Fredo Corleone with a wind-up toy of a circus monkey playing cymbals where his relatability and improvisational skills should reside.
