Would a player rather be booed, or play in front of empty seats?

Booed of course. At least they know that someone is paying attention. And then the player can try to prove they're worth cheering for. :D:

Is it when they are playing for a team like the Tigers,and know they have no chance,or playing for a team that might have a chance?

That is the real question,as I see it.

Correction: you contribute to their salary. JR pays them.

Do you think they see someone in the stands and say, well I better perform today or that guy won't pay me? Or do they look up in the stadium and see thousands and say, ****, I hope I perform well tonight? I say they see the thousands and want to perform for everyone.

They are still human beings, and they are performers. Basically every performer needs an audience. Don't tell me they don't play better in front of a packed house as opposed to a near empty one. Also, look at post-season baseball, where the play is usually better. Is that money motivated? They get a ring and a winners check which isn't even close to their regular salary........big deal.

Congradulations. You're very good at taking every phrase literally.

Not saying they dont care, but they might care a little more if those contracts werent guarenteed and they didnt have 10 mill in the bank.

No, I just don't like that people think they own the team. Niether you or I own this team. It is a past time for our play time, and yes we want every game to be to our liking always. It just isn't that way every game. Sometimes the guys in the other dugout play to win as well and our team gets beat.

How about this explanation? The fans are booing because promises from the organization have not been fulfilled. They are booing the players as a way to boo the organization as a whole. On the reverse, the players are upset by the booing because they are upset, again, with the performance of the organization. If the team were winning, fans wouldn't be booing so much and the players wouldn't care about the occaisional jeer because they are too busy winning.

Two constants exist in Chicago on the South Side: 1. Fans are angered by the way things are run and contemplate boycotts. 2. Proven players are upset with the way things are run and refuse to return, issuing their own personal boycotts.

Can't we all just get along??

here's an even more important question:

would a player rather run into a wall and be out for 6 games, or just be benched for 6 straight games by the coach who doesn't think a lot of him?

I think a player would rather make the out then sit the bench. If that means running into a wall so be it. I think it was a McRae who actually ran through the wall in the Minors. If a player wants to be benched, then they don't need to be on the team.

What is your obsession with empty seats and/or booing? This is something like your third post dealing with the subject.

Ditka would hit the storm in the eye with a wad of gum and then it would take seven years to settle in the courts...
