6:01 pm
accommodate two teams. >> reporter: which may mean both teams moving to the peninsula. it may be the start of the big sports move that we see in the coming year. the san francisco giants are already in talks with the city to build a new arena next to at&t park. >> that could bring the warriors back to san francisco in a new state-of-the-art arena. >> reporter: and, of course, there's also the as's hopes of moving south to san jose. >> that's an issue that needs to be worked out with the giants. >> reporter: so what we have is raiders and 9ers to santa clara, or maybe to oakland. warriors from oakland back to san francisco. and the as south to san jose or beyond. >> i think that's all going to finally come to a head in the next year. >> reporter: how does all this sit with the east bay folks? after all, they could be left with an empty arena, empty stadium and no team. well, there are not taking it very well. i spoke with alameda county supervisor scott haggerty today. he said, hey, maybe we should

6:04 pm
businesses that sell planned parenthood parking places complete with crowds and graphic images of abortions. >> because of them, planned parenthood would be able to open up in this site. >> reporter: they are just selling parking spaces. >> i understand. but if they don't get those parking spaces, right, they don't get to have their clinic here. right? >> reporter: the city is now requiring planned parenthood to prove that it has the parking before the project moves forward. enterprise based in st. louis has issued a statement saying, quote, the contract is nonexecutable because it does not have all the necessary signatures. planned parenthood says it's disappointed but will not leave redwood city. >> we're still in conversations with that organization or with that company. we're also having conversations with other companies and organizations to be able to find alternatives if that doesn't work. as i said, we're still committed to going into that
6:05 pm
