    Not saying they would have for sure,the key word there is COULD. Had fucking free agency never happened there is an excellent chance they could have pulled it off though.We'll never know if they would have won that many in a row but I guarantee they would have gone to the world series a lot more often after 1974 and would have won a lot more world series games than they did had that fucking free agency never came along.

    Fucking free agency is what broke up the dynasty.They Lost Reggie Jackson,Catfish Hunter,Gene Tennace,Joe Rudi,pretty much everybody in the entire starting line up starting in 1975 when they won their last division title in the 70's after dominating everybody in the american league west and winning three world series titles from 1972 to 1974, A;s fans really got robbed back then.

    as i have said so many times,fucking free agency is what has ruined this game. as long as we have it,the A's will never have a shot at greatness again as they had back then. they will never have the chance to achiever greatness like the teams from the late 80's at LEAST were given the chance back then since it wasnt until the mid 90's when free agency started being such a disadvantage for small market teams like the A'S.:mad:

    Those Oakland A's before free agency took away all their players,were one of the very most talented group of teams ever in the history of the game.

    So free agency ruined baseball? One team was winning and the rest had to live with it, but free agency ruined baseball? The players, who were the ones actually creating the winning, had little or no control over their careers. The bulk of the money went to the owners of the teams. But free agency ruined baseball?

    It might have ruined things for Oakland. But that is it.

    damned right it ruined it. strange that you would thiink this is the only time i have talked about it.:cuckoo: this was the thread where i explained in detail how it destroyed the game,the logic and common sense people agreed with me as you can see by the likes given to me.:rolleyes:

    you want to discuss it more.pm THEM,dont expect me to go any further with you since my experience is people that can hide behind the net cant ever admit when they have been proven wrong.

    I am not much of a baseball fan. I may go to a Braves game every year or two, so I rarely read baseball threads.

    The OP in this thread was about how free agency ruined your favorite team by allowing the players more freedom to decide where they play. I addressed your comments here, not in another thread.
