The Rowand thing has only been around for 6-9 months, really. But the "JR is cheap" angle has been worked tirelessly for years.

I think this season, you could put all of the above and it would most likely win, and you could add, attendance and Green seats in that poll too.

ATTENDANCE! How could you possibly leave this off the list?

Good point - I missed it. can a mod add attendance to that?

JR is cheap, without a doubt.

What about the Sox fans obsession with the Cubs? Some of you have Cubbie on the brain.

How about all of the above. Some people would find something to complain about no matter what happens.

This is so true, I would like to vote for all of them, it seems like there is a new thread on each of these, plus attendance everyday.

I'm going to lump that with the media bias choice and vote for it. Good call!

I was going to beat that Dead Horse some more, when it Suddenly Came to Life and kicked some in the Media in the Crotch.
The horse is alive .............. many are going to say he never existed now :smile:

Done.

I voted for Frank at 1B. It's just not going to happen.

I think the attendance issue has been around longer. Although typically, they go hand in hand.

Looking at all the options, attendance has to be the clear choice just by how long it has been debated.

PK and Kock have only had there contracts for a couple of years.

Rowand has only been around for a few years.

KW has only been around for a few years.

Putting Frank at 1B isn't really brought up that much and not discussed as heatedly (is that a word?) when it is brought up.

The media bias has been around for a while but it has just been more magnified the past year or so because the Cubs finally put a decent team together and of course got the “messiah”.

JR is cheap just about goes with the attendance because that’s always brought up as a reason he is cheap.


What, nothing about the seats not being green?

Looking at this board alone, I have to say that the Rowand thing is ridiculously overblown. Why devote lengthy thread after thread to the defensive acumen of a minimum wage OF? The real issue is why KW throws big money at overrated players, preventing him from plugging obvious holes.

If you look outside of this board and consider the Chicago media, it's definitely attendance.

I agree with Hangar that the media horse is alive and kicking.

I think "green seats" is missing from the list of options. If we're gonna ignore it, then I'll go with attendance.

I have sympathy for those others like me who wanted more than one choice. I think this shows that as fans we should be more constructive about the team instead of going after the same dead horses in most threads.

I agree that the green seats would be my #1 choice as well. I voted for KW as a bad GM though because IMHO I just don't think it's true!

Gotta be attendance. Can we get that "Not Another Attendance Thread" being used put into general circulation?

Also, I've noticed the Wrigley shooting was hot and heavy for a week, and then it sort of dropped off the face of the earth (on the message board, not the columns).
