Watching on TV, I was actually a bit disappointed that the booing for the Flubs involved in the game wasnt louder.

It was great to see the looks on their faces though.

That was South Side action at its best.
Berman can take his tired schtick to the Cubby Bear. where they might actually think he has some wit.

In person, the booing was much louder than the Fox broadcast would indicate.

Biggest cheers, IMO:

1. Loaiza
2. Maggs
3. Everett
4. Nomar

Biggest boos:

1. Dusty Baker
2. Kerry Wood
3. Mark Prior
4. Bonds
5. Giambi
6. Clemens
7. AL Central rivals
8. Jerry Manuel

Chris Berman isn't a Cubs fans. In fact, we told me personally that he would root for the Sox in Chicago because he likes the hard-nosed atmosphere.

Berman is a bay-area fan. He loves the Giants, 49ers, A's and Raiders.

Anyone who was surprised by the booing just doesn't have a clue about baseball in Chicago and the country as a whole,for that matter.I can't stand Berman and wish he would stick to football.He has been ripping Comiskey Park and the White Sox for years.
The look on Mark Prior's face when he got booed was priceless and i think he gets it.
I had the radio broadcast on as well as fox and you could hear much more over the radio.

Back when he used to do wednesday night baseball(about 3 years ago) they did a game for Comiskey and he spent nearly the whole game making fun of the scoreboard,the park,and the fans.I couldn't give you the exact game as my memory isn't very sharp anymore.Another time(during another wed. night game)he was doing play-by-play and they were talking about teams that have a great history with winning seasons and he made a joke about the White Sox not having much of a history.I assume he meant great players and winning the World Series.

He was on the radio before the game saying he expected to get booed because "I'm a Cub and this is the Sox park." He does get it, and I would even venture that he respects our passion. He laughed when he got booed in the introduction, so it's not like he takes it personally. Remember, he didn't choose the Cubs ó the Cubs chose him.

I root against the guy because he plays for the Cubs, but I still respect him, unlike a lot of the bums over there.

You want specifics?

Berman is the same guy who verbally castigated Sox fans for leaving in droves as the last of the 9th inning started in game #2 of the 2000 ALDS. He did play by play for that game and was spouting how "this is the offense that led the American League in runs.....yadda, yadda, yadda... how can the fans leave? That's awful..."

What Chris didn't know and perhaps was to lazy to find out is that this organization was in the process of losing it's ninth straight home post season game.

If Chris would actually spend some time at Sox games, (he hadn't been in the park since then until last night), perhaps he'd realize the anger and frustration.

Screw his fat ass.

Whether Berman likes the Sox better than the Cubs seems rather immaterial to me. He repeatedly showed me he has little knowledge of baseball, especially South Side baseball. He strikes me as simply one more "fan" waiting for the NFL summer camp to begin.

For example:

1. Doing Chimp Caray proud when referring to "White Sock player" Carl Everett.
2. Failing to pass himself off as familiar with South Side tradition (except to listeners equally ignorant) by imitating Hawk Harrelson's "You can put it on the Board--GONE!"
3. Failing to note the strong anti-Cubs booing that accompanied the entire team during the crosstown series, or the strong feelings of disenfranchisement (that even the Chicago media has finally acknowledged) as the source of Sox Fans' booing.

Berman needs to stick to football. He built his entire reputation on silly nicknames and imitating Howard Cosell. If that ain't NFL material, nothing is.

Finally, I personally don't condone booing all-star ballplayers. However, Berman going out of his way to criticize Sox Fans in the manner he did showed his utter lack of understanding for why it happened. There isn't one of them that did anything to deserve boos. If anyone deserved booing, it was Mike Scioscia for *picking* Jason Giambi to the all-star game over the greatest Sox ballplayer in franchise history, Frank Thomas.

The boos were misdirected, IMO. However I'm sure Berman wouldn't understand that either.

Amen. His hair is short and neatly combed on top but shaggy and a mess in the back. Also, could you imagine if this game was at Wrigley and the fans booed certain players(not that they pay attention to the game anyway). They would probably claim that they invented booing players and that its been a north side tradition forever.

It took Baker a while to understand the Sox- cub rivalry, but he gets it now.

Hangar we have to get you a WSI press pass so you can start educating guys like Berman and set the record straight.

Selig wanted the All-Star gave to be taken serious by the players, well Sox fans did their part and showed their true passion for their team and league!

Berman is an overrated loud mouth and just another national media member who is misinformed about almost everything. You would think everyone would be sick of his tired act already.

Berman is just another in a long line of so-called journalists who have slandered Sox fans. It has gotten so old, it doesn't faze me anymore.

From today's Cub-Times:

BOO BIRDS: Before leaving town, ESPN's Chris Berman created quite a firestorm locally when on the late edition of ''SportsCenter'' after Tuesday night's All-Star Game, he blasted the White Sox fans who booed everyone associated with the Cubs, Minnesota Twins, Kansas City Royals, New York Yankees and Sox manager Jerry Manuel.

Essentially, Berman said the boos were classless and out of place at an All-Star Game. On Wednesday, the sports talk radio airwaves lit up with local reaction to Berman's comments.

Much of the ranting was hypocritical. Apparently, Sox fans--or at least the ones voicing their displeasure--can dish it out but can't take it.

Yes, those fans paid good money for their tickets and have every right to boo anyone they desire. I don't dispute that. However, by doing so, you open yourself up to criticism of the sort Berman delivered.

To me, the boos sent a negative message--not to the recipients of the boos but about the fans themselves. It just came across as petty. It also confirmed the belief held by many that some Sox fans have an inferiority complex and need to tear others down to make themselves feel more important.

07-18-2003, 07:53 AM
Here is the text of the e-mail I sent to Jackson:


"Mr. Jackson:

You certainly are entitled to your opinion, but frankly, your assesment of the the fact that White Sox fans did some booing at the All Star game on Tuesday was entirely off base. You wrote:

"To me, the boos sent a negative message--not to the recipients of the boos but about the fans themselves. It just came across as petty. It also confirmed the belief held by many that some Sox fans have an inferiority complex and need to tear others down to make themselves feel more important."

So booing the team's bitter rivals (i.e., all of the AL Central teams and the Cubs) "confirms" that Sox fans have an inferiority complex and need to tear down others? That is perhaps the stupidest thing I have ever seen written in major news media. Gee, Dr. Joyce, do you think that maybe, just maybe, the reason that Sox fans booed those players from those teams was because they are White Sox fans who want to see the White Sox succeed and that those players from other teams are the Sox primary competition? When Cubs fans boo the Cardinals, is that because they have an inferiority complex and need to tear down others? No, of course not, it is because they like the Cubs and they don't like the Cardinals. Similarly, Sox fans like the Sox, but don't like their AL Central rivals or the Cubs. Get it? Your attempt at amateur psychology would be laughable if it weren't so offensive and condescending.

But since you're so into playing amateur psychologist, I think I'll give it a shot. Your patently offensive article confirms that you are either stupid, or hold a bias against Sox fans and look to impugn their every action with some sort of misguided or pathetic motivation. It ain't that complicated, Einstein, the Sox fans booed their rivals, juts like the fans of all teams do. The fact that Sox fans don't put their convictions on hold during the All Star game shows how deeply they want the Sox to win. Their actions at the All Star game proved just that. Sorry that your thickheadedness or your bias precluded you from seeing that obvious truth."

I sent the following to Mr. Jackson:

Mr. Jackson:

If you have ever watched an All-Star Game in the past (and Iíve been doing it since the mid-1950s) you might just have noticed as I have that there are often players who get booed.

Those players generally tend to be:

a) Players from the home clubs rivals
b) Players who have been traded by the home club.

In this regard Sox fans are no better or worse than the fans of any fans who have attended All-Star games in every major league city for the past 48 years that Iíve been watching them. In fact it is almost a clichť shot on TV to show the players being booed laughing about it, just as they did Tuesday night.

In fact, if you think about it, the greater the more boos you hear for rival players indicates greater respect for those players because the fans know they can hurt the home team.

As far as the booing of Jerry Manuel is concerned, I donít know if I would have done that if I had been there, but I can understand the reason, even if you donít. The Sox are underachieving and the fans are frustrated. They canít boo Kenny Williams who put the club together. They canít boo Jerry Reinsdorf who owns this mess. The only person they can boo who is in a position of responsibility is Jerry Manuel. Rightly or wrongly, Sox fans were venting their frustration.

The media in this city are hilarious. Sox fans have been portrayed as not caring and emotionless for close to a decade now. However, the instant they show some emotion (at least where more than a few beat writers can observe it), the media come down on them for being classless. I guess weíre all just damned if we do and damned if we donít.

Here's my letter:


You know what? I really don't care what an overblown, overhyped, overrated, obnoxious, and inherently unfunny windbag such as Chris Vermin (since he likes nicknames so much) thinks of Sox fans. The man has been passe' for 10 years now in my opinion. HOWEVER, I do take offense when being called a hypocrite by a local columnist as yourself who should know better. I've seen in the past where rival players of the host team gets soundly booed, and they usually laugh about it while waving to the crowd and joking about it with the players next to them. The players themselves USED to think it was funny! But now, the pampered, self-centered, prima donna athlete of today is too good for that? I was standing by Cub 'fans' who booed Pujols; why aren't they classless hypocrites? Is Vermin proud of them cause they actually know Pujols is a member of their biggest rivals? Have you followed the White Sox for the last 3 years? Manuel deserved to get booed! Louder than he did actually. You don't think the lemmings at that ivy-covered pisspot known as Wrigley field would have booed Frank Thomas every time he was shown on the big screen scoreboard, even if they had one? Let's see, we booed Twins and Royals, division rivals. We booed Cubs, local rival. We booed the Yankees, just like everyone outside of New York City and Bristol, Connecticut do. Gee, I hope when Soldier Field re-opens the Bear fans don't boo that quaint little Gold and Green team that plays in a cute little historic field that has actually seen a championship in the last 90 years! Oh, it's a national audience, us mean little ol Chicagoans better behave or Christ Vermin might yell at us again on NFL Primetime. I'm not even a Bears fan and I think the Packers should get booed at Soldier field. Well, I guess as a White Sox fan I owe you and Christ Vermin an apology; I am sorry for having a mind of my own and actually being capable of knowing who our rivals are and voicing my opinion as such.

By the way, Christ is not a typo, the man thinks he owns the world.

Here's a tip guys:

If you feel the need to write a letter, check your spelling, do not use any crude language, and never slam any other team in a crude way. That's the stuff they then just turn around and print to make us all look stupid -- they'll never print the eloquent letters that make a valid point.

All you need to do is point out the double standard of, say, booing in Chicago vs. booing in New York. No one would have questioned Mets fans booing the Yankees when they came out. They would have thought it was funny. And point out that, the cross-town Sox-Cubs hatred has been going longer than any other rivalry in baseball, and maybe all of sports except Harvard-Yale.

By the way, regarding Baker not understanding the Sox-Cubs rivalry -- I can understand him not getting it because of the Bay Area. You would think there would be a lot of Giants fans who hate the A's because of the 1989 World Series. But no, out here there are people who root for whoever is winning that day and only a handful of A's fans who hate the Giants. They actually sell hats that are half Yellow-Green A's and half Black-Orange SF -- and people wear them!

Here's mine:

John:

As always I enjoy reading your thoughts. I hope you'll allow me to express mine.

I've been a White Sox fan for 42 years (and have been in the media since 1979) and yes I DO have an inferiority complex. It's caused by an organization that has been to one World Series in my lifetime and hasn't done squat over the past 22 years particularly, while everyone else it seems in baseball HAS.

As far as Chris Berman...you might want to read some of Phil Arvia's comments about him in his column today in the Daily Southtown.

All I can say is that if Chris would spend more time on the South Side then once every three years, (he did play by play for both home games in the 2000 ALDS and hasn't been back since) he'd see how loyal Sox fans are to THEIR team (to the total exclusion of every other club and player) as well as how angry and frustrated they are over this perennial NON contender led by an organization that blames the fans and the Chicago media for the troubles that THEY created.

By the way may I recommend this web site: White Sox Interactive www.whitesoxinteractive.com

Your friend Ron Rapoport has written about it and was an interview guest of mine. These fans (including myself) spend our own money to produce it.

I strongly urge you to become a regular visitor. These are what the real fans think and this is how Sox fans show they care not by going out and supporting an owner perhaps more disliked then any in professional sports.

Thanks for your time.

I know what you're saying about him taking our insults and using it as 'proof' that Berman was right, but I don't really give a damn. Who's going to agree with him anyway? Cub fans? They'll forget what they read 5 minutes later so who cares?

My letter:

To the editors:

How ironic that Mr. Jackson's reference to Sox fans as "hypocritical" and "petty" reflects only on himself. If "booing" AL Central rivals reflects negatively on Sox fans, then, in his own words, Mr. Jackson's "booing" of the Chicago sports fans who pay his salary by reading your newspaper "confirm[s] the belief held by many that [he has] an inferiority complex and need[s] to tear others down to make [himself] feel more important." Pot, kettle, black.

An ASG is an ASG, which is why I added the NBA link. The other link has the writer expecting Mariner fans to boo A-Rod.

Also, the 2002 ASG had plenty of boo-birds directed at Bud Selig's decision to pull the plug... I didn't include a link, though there's plenty of them out there.

Maybe it had something to do with the fact that the manager sucks, the team in underachieving for the third straight year (how many coaches have been fired unde Manuel?), after making 2 big trades they go 2-8 a road trip, and the fact that Sox fans show a lot of passion for their team and absolutely hate losing.
