Hilarious. This isn't one-upmanship, it's ten-upmanship. Guess that Cubby fan will think twice next time.

My favorite comment in the comments section is the cub fan that says something like,

"Sox fans are stupid the L flag is supposed to be blue with a white backround."

That just shows how much Cub fans know about the W and L tradition...

Cub fan got owned after starting the fracas. He admits to being owned; Cub fans posting in comments cry foul.

Which team was convinced "THIS" was their year?
Count the goats, realize you got owned, and shut up.

I will give credit to about half the Cubs fan comment posters who laughed and shrugged and admitted it was funny. Good to know some people can take a joke.

I like the "Cubs fans just don't care about the Sox" comments- to which I say "O RLY"? I'm not sure if they're illiterate or what, considering half the Cubs fan comments on that blog were disparaging and insanely idiotic insults directed at Sox fans. I'm not saying there's some cruel **** that gets said on our side, but at least most of us don't deny that our fans talk trash to Cubs fans, I can't stand the "Cubs fans are saints" myth. ****ing Eddie Haskell bastards.

A few weeks ago I got an email from a friend who has a Cubbie blog. He said that Cubbie fans are "fixated on the Cubs." He had no answer when I asked why then there were over 15,000 posts about the Sox on his Cubbie blog. There were even a few people on his blog who said that they, "Don't give a damn about the Sox!" The funny thing is that each one who said that had hundreds of posts about the Sox on that blog.

In general I think Sox fans are much more candid and honest. I don't think Sox fans would let it pass such hypocrisy as witnessed on that Cubbie blog w/o comment.

Also, Cubbie fans tolerate, accept and at the very least tacitly encourage hateful smears on Sox fans. When that Sox fan got his eyeball kicked out this year by Cubbie fans, remember it was preceded by taunts about Sox fans missing teeth. I'll tell you those smears are very common from the mouths and keyboards of Cubbie fans.

I agree and they call us "white trash" and "scumbags" and compare us all to William Ligue (I might've spelled that ****head's name wrong, whatever). And most of them will deny that the racial slurs and death threats directed at Jacque Jones, Corey Patterson, Dusty Baker, Kosuke Fukudome, etc ever happened. Still, that brawl was an isolated incident just as Ligue was an isolated incident. And as long as we're on the subject, sometimes I think our side takes things too far too; I'd rather be called "toothless white trash" than hear the torrent of homophobic **** that some Sox fans spew out at Cub fans. It's a shame, really and it embarrasses me and everyone else who's not anti-gay that of all the possible insults we could throw at Cubs fans (and there are a lot) people choose to go there. Gay or straight doesn't matter, they're just ****ty fans. Both sides need to clean up, but I believe and I hope that there are more people in the Sox fanbase who realize that than the delusional Kool-aid drinking Eddie Haskells in Wrigleyville.

I hope the mods don't take issue with that statement, it wasn't meant as a political comment- just one against prejudice.

Here's the thing, IF you post those types of homophobic comments about Cubbie fans here you will be banned. At the freewheeling, unmoderated White Sox newsgroup if you make those types of comments you'll be knocked down by Sox fans. On the other hand, the white trash (etc.) smears on Sox fans are laughed at and rarely, if ever, condemned by Cubbie fans and certainly no one gets banned.

Sox fans have little tolerance for that verbal intolerance. Such is not the case with Cubbie fans. But yet they are better than us...

Fair enough. Although, I think that's partly because this board is well-moderated and tends to attract more intelligent and open-minded people than your average internet forum. I was just bringing up a counterpoint.

You're right. Go to an unmoderated forum or, worse, in the outfield stands at a Sox/Cubs game and man, will you hear the homophobic and racist crap flying.

I actually almost got into a fight - one of the only times I have ever come close - with a fellow Sox fan in RF at the Cell for his ever-so-clever "nickname" for Magglio Ordonez once he was a Tiger. What a ****ing imbecile.

How do you take that much offense with somebody you don't even know calling somebody else you don't know a name?

Because calling someone "Fagglio" repeatedly at the top of your lungs and acting like it's the most witty thing ever is ****ing stupid and, worse, makes your fellow Sox fans look stupid. Just my opinion.

The first people I heard say, "Fagglio" were Cubbie fans. (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=569242&postcount=18)

And as far as homophobic taunts, I was at Mark Prior's first game at The Shrine sitting in the LF bleachers. Cubbie clowns in the bleachers were taunting the Pirates left fielder (Brian Giles?) with an endless torrent of hateful, homophobic taunts.

Not in my experience. In the wholly un-moderated White Sox newsgroup the only crap like that you'll find is from Cubbie trolls.

And go to just about any Cubbie discussion site or blog and you'll find bigoted remarks by Cubbie fans about the Sox and Sox fans. They don't usually use the N-word but everything short of that is fine in most Cubbie fan eyes.

These racist shirts are sold outside The Shrine, but I've been told by Cubbie fans that they are not racist.

This is all fine and good, and I agree, but don't pretend like Sox fans (or, for that matter, maybe fans of any team) are any better. You're really turning a blind eye (or ear) to it if you do.

Sox fans are better, in general, IMHO. And here's why, those types of taunts are not tolerated by Sox fans - in person and on discussion boards. On the other hand, Cubbie fans make the racist, bigoted comments in person and on discussion boards very frequently and rarely if ever does it get condemned by Cubbie fans. In fact very often it's just the opposite, it's cheered on. So in my experience, Sox fans are better because of the reaction when those comments are made.

Your experience might be different, but that's mine.

It's not a shrine, it's a dump that smells like a urinal. The most overrated venue in all of sports. Ivy on the wall? Big f'n deal. Any 1 of us can make our backyards look nicer than that.

I use the term, "The Shrine," in a sarcastic manner. A few years ago the Sox pre and post game host, Dave Wills, used that term in sarcastic tone.
