Fremonters protest A's stadium plans
A planned Oakland A's "information session" on their latest plans for a new stadium in Fremont turned into a protest on Thursday, as hundreds of local residents turned out with "No Stadium" signs and worries of horrendous traffic in their neighborhoods. Team officials responded, according to the San Jose Mercury News, by saying they have "proposed to pay for traffic monitors and security guards to keep fans out of surrounding neighborhoods." This doesn't seem like it's going to end well.
