A whole lot happening in the sports world with the Oakland A's. Basically the franchise has done nothing to be legit contenders and they have the lowest payroll in the league for players. As a result, the Oakland A's games have been pretty much empty for the last few years. But now there's this entire fan movement that just started.


Oakland Athletics fans flocked to the Coliseum on Tuesday to hold a "reverse boycott" against the franchise's plans to move to Las Vegas ... and the movement got support from one major supporter -- Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong!!
More than 27,000 supporters -- the biggest crowd of the season -- filled the stadium to prove to A's owner John Fisher they still support the ball club ... and many wore shirts calling on him to sell the team.
Of course, A's fans have been fed up for years ... with the A's front office seemingly giving up on any hopes of being legit contenders by shipping away young stars and having the lowest payroll in the league -- resulting in poor attendance records at home games.
Now that Fisher has kickstarted the relocation process, the larger-than-normal crowd of A's fans showed their disproval as their beloved team played the Tampa Bay Rays ... chanting "sell the team!" and, at other times, giving the silent treatment altogether.
Armstrong -- an Oakland native and longtime A's backer -- was among the fans in attendance ... and he was all-in on the cause, posting his support on Instagram.
