Why are Sox fans so bitter and angry?

Why are they so bitter and angry? Please don't answer a question with a question (e.g. why are Cubs fans gay? etc). Thank you. I'm curious, as an immigrant to the south side, I'm very confused.

Little known fact: Slowass was a Sox fan. It is true.

What made me sour?

Tore down a historic park.

Built a chacterless structure that Babe Ruth never played in.

Over-marketing. "Hey! Come to Comisky Park! We have batting cages, driving ranges, great food..." What about the 'baseball'?

The final straw? HOW SHITTY AND FICKLE SOX FANS ARE. I had the pleasure of being at Wilson Alvarez's history-making no-hitter: A no hitter he LOST. The Sox were so shitty that year, that they couldn't even support a no-hitting pitcher. Runs scored due to walks and errors. NO FANS WERE THERE TO SEE IT. I remember an EMPTY BALL PARK on hand for his big day. Nice guys. Real nice. Way to support your team.

Ditto, us sox fans have nothing to be bitter about. We won a world series within the 5 years. We have a better record with the remains of the players from 05. We have a better record than the cubs. Even though this for us is playing mediocre, the cubs are at the top of their game and still trail behind us. Id say we are pretty happy as fans.

Because this is a Cubs town and will always be a Cubs town. The Sox are second fiddle even after winning a WS.
Cubs are the favorite team.

From the Redeye, quoted from Forbes "The Business of Baseball", what each team is worth:
Cubs: $592 million
Sox: $381 million

The Cubs ranked as a top 5 favorite team all but one year since 2003. In comparison, the White Sox made the top 10 one year and tied that year with the San Francisco Giants.

Not to mention, it costs more to go to a Cubs game, so you don't see as many scum bags as you do at the Sox games.

im not bitter either.. i may be spoiled because my team usually plays better and they are not doing so well this year, im not about to celebrate that. im a bit disappointed in our relivers and our player choices, i.e. getting rid of garcia, but w/e.. i'll live, no bitterness just spoiled.

Well then why do so many of them care SO MUCH about the Cubs? Just live and let live! Again, growing up on the north side, I never heard anyone waste even a fraction of the time and attention Sox fans spend talking about the Cubs, and I guess as one with an advanced degree in psychology, I'm curious.

I'm still going with the latent class envy theory.

Huh, I have an office full of Cub fans and two of my buddies own Bars in Wrigley and are die hard N Siders and they all bash the Sox as much as humanly possible - If there is any bitterness, I would have to say it is with the Cubs fans for having to wait for soooooo long

That and they SUCK!!! (sorry, just has tah)

ya know... thats kind of bullshit. "class envy" im not low class, i may be broke because of a car payment now, but "class envy"? why are all sox fans automatically poor now? the president of the company i used to work for who made freakin millions of dollars a year after taxes was a die hard sox fan... and season tickets arent cheap, those seats are sold though... i dont understand? yes okay, white sox are south siders, but are all their fans on the southside living in the projects?? no.
its just a city with two teams, are you trying to say that cubs fans dont bash the sox?? even in this thread alone people are, its a rivalry, i dont seriously "HATE" the cubs or cubs fans, infact im in love with one! its like the blonde/brunette thing.. just something human beings do in our society..

Exactly, same here. My office is 80% cub fans and thats all they do is tear the sox and pay attention to our lose streaks if we have one. You guys are no better at the shit talking. Plus talking shit is what makes the game fun we all know that. Even cub fans talk shit to each other i learned at my first cubs game. I mean...who the hell yells at the other side bleachers?

You're still on the subject?

Sox fans can tell you sure don't have an advanced degree in English. "Latent class envy theory" ??

What you are trying to say is that your Theory (a belief, policy, or procedure proposed or followed as the basis of action) is that Sox fans Envy (a feeling of grudging admiration and desire to have something that is possessed by another) Cub fans that have a Latent( potentially existing but not presently evident or realized) Class.

I'm glad you know how to use the Internet. I made no spelling, grammar or word usage errors above. As a matter of fact, your little Google effort validates my usage of "Latent Class Envy Theory" and if you had been to college, you would know this. You even had to look up the above terms because your stupid ass didn't understand it. I'm taking issue with you because you're always the faggot starting shit in these threads. Steve G2G, for example, teases in jest (and actually is a friend of mine), but you act so stereotypical it's not funny.

You're a north sider. If you moved down to the south side, you'd see that it's a whole different thing/takes on a whole new level (See OldFool's posts in various threads).

I think the Cubs are a joke and a farce. It's the same old shit every year. Everyone wonders whats wrong with the Cubs. Year after year the same old questions and problems. You all know its true if you pay attention. I got so sick of listening about the Cubs that I don't listen to the Score radio station anymore. Have not missed it at all.

I always ask someone who is a Cubs fan, "what are you a fan of?"

[QUOTE=Slowass;807291](See OldFool's posts in various threads).[/QUOT

You are the one who had to create a new thread base on what was being said in another post. In the other sox/cubs post. cub fans were dishing it out because we(Sox fans) were down in the series. Sox fans were defending their team and the cubs fans started talking about who brings in more fans to the stadium..etc,etc. I dished it out back then you start on the whole "Class" bullshit and someone else even called you out on that one. Seems like you're the one who needs anger management counseling since you gave me negative rep with that comment. You have now moved on to personal attacks with the name calling.

If you can't take the whole sox/cubs debate with a grain of salt, that's your problem. Calling me bitter, faggot and oldfool just makes you look like the bitter one who can handle a little ribbing.
