There were no Cub Fans at the game agitating and instigating things. And here, the SOX were racking their brains trying to figure out what the problem was

Today the Cubs play during the day and the Sox at night, hopefully the drunk sCrUBS stay in Wrigleyville.

A couple of diehard Sox fans were sitting behind me yesterday (I was sitting in right field) and they said that they were a bit upset at all the fights during the last few Monday and Tuesday games. They complained that the beer vendors were not coming by and that there was a one beer limit at the stands. It was towards the end of the game and one of them said, wow I guess this one beer policy worked. I turned around and said what worked is that the Flubs are at home so all the stupid Cub fans stayed at home tonight. They actually said they have seen it with their own eyes that it seems that most of the time it is ALWAYS a stupid Cub fan that starts the fights.

It was AWESOME to see such a big crowd last night.

I was about 98% sure that was the reason to begin with, but I think last night definitely proved it.

Were beer vendors even in the outfield at all, or just banned from the aisles? Sometimes they mill around out there for walk-up business. Anyway, The one beer limit might have worked LAST NIGHT, but I am still interested to see how it works the next half-price night that the Cubs are out of town. For one, people know about the one-beer limit now so they may take measures to drink more before the game, and I just can't see 10 guys standing in line to get 10 beers without a bunch of drunk Cub fans behind them getting pissed off that the line is so long. I'm glad last night was tame by half price night standards, but I don't think we have good example to go on until the north side team is out of town again.

AND IVE BEEN WAITING FOR am670 to Talk about this Fact ......
Remember last week, how the SCORE tried to PLANT the story that "Cell is getting too Violent" when the real reason was Cub Fans coming to the park and instigating things? Today.......
Nothing Mentioned. Of course

YUP! However, I figured a way around this, You'll only be able to do it once, because then they Write your number down
(555-111-9999 sox fan) and wont let you back thru.
SAY YOUR A CUB FAN, MAKE UP A CUB QUESTION, and watch
HOW AMAZINGLY FAST you get thru. They Screen the calls ...
why i hate that show

Was it no cubs fans - or no beer vendors? Hard to tell I guess.

I definitely attribute it to the lack of beer vendors. There were a couple of groups around me who were VERY disappointed in the lack of beer vendors, had to get up and wait in line several times, and didn't get nearly as drunk as they wanted to. There were PLENTY of cub-holes there, but the crowd was mellow, and the ribbing good natured. In particular, one guy in front of me chanted for the Cubs a couple of times, and some guys had some words for him. I have no doubt that if these drillrods had a few more beers in them, it would have gotten into more than words by the end of the night.

Good call Sox.

Good call Sox. wait a second! go back and read your post. was it the lack of beer or the fact that the cub fan wasn't heard by the type of sox fan (who i personally love) who, no matter if drunk or not, would have told him to sit down and shut the hell up? JUST BECAUSE YOU DRINK BEERS AT GAMES DOESN'T MEAN YOU WILL FIGHT! it depends on the people. the problem lies in the fact that the cub fan was trying to get a rise out of sox fans by cheering for the cubs, not the beer. if you remove the cub fan from any of the scenarios, there is no reason for sox fans to get upset, drunk or not! :angry:

while that is true - removing temptation is not always the solution to the problem. At games, as in life, temptations exist. You can not tell Cubs fans that they can't come to the park. You can't stop someoene from coming to a game and cheering for the Cubs. (although when they are playing 8 miles north and there were plenty of tickets GREAT SEATS to be had AT FACE VALUE in front of Wrigley, I don't know why they would) You can, and should, stop drunken aholes from pushing and shoving and throwing punches. If a Cubs fan cheers for the cubs in your section - regardless of if you drink or not - ignore him - who cares? Or have fun with him - remind him of his 4th place team. But the fights are ridiculous - beer or not.

Oh my what are you impling. That because the cubs were in town maybe thier fans went to wrigley field instead of coming to US Cellular , I don't think those upstanding, intelligent ,wonderful fans would ever do what your trying to make us believe.

MAYBE SOME OF THE SCRUB LOVING SPORTS REPORTERS IN THIS TOWN WILL OPEN THIER EYES AND CONNECT THE DOTS. Every time my wife & I go to one of the half price nights its nothing but fights and almost everytime you see some scrub loving idiot in a shammee jersey throwing punches or yelling at White Sox fans. But the next day White Sox fans are called bums by the media because of all the fights , that would also imply that our White Sox don't have to many chicago sports reporters at our games because they'd see the same thing we do SCRUB FANS CAUSING PROBLEMS!

I guess it would have been nice to test one theory at a time...but probably easier said than done!

Good call. A guy like that is just desperate for attention, like most of the "fans" at Wrigley on their cellphones hoping to hear they are on TV. Ignoring him will make him feel far worse than letting him know he's getting to you. Although, reminding him of his team's pedestrian status is also good.

Why don't YOU give it a second read. There were some young, dumb Sox fans going below his level with the taunting. Obviously all this woulda/coulda is idle speculation, but it wouldn't have surprised me in the least to see these guys get in a fight had any of them been properly soused.

I'm not arguing that Cub fans should come to our park to taunt Sox fans, but for anybody to take it to the level of putting somebody in the ER as they did last week is despicable, and any actions the Sox take to curb that are welcome.
