What was the point of booing Everett? He did plenty for this team. The fans should have at least ignored him if they didn't like him. From what I heard there was plenty of booing for Crazy Carl. I think that's pretty low of our fans.

It could be due to the comments he made about the team after he left.

I agree, he helped us win a championship last year, guess some "fans" just have to boo at something. If Big Frank gets Boo'd I will be upset.

I don´t think you would have heard the boos were it not for some of the comments Everett made recently about leadership and how important Thomas, Everett and Willie Harris SUPPOSEDLY were to the team last year. Carl has been very critical of KW, and fans don´t buy that, as everyone 1) would have rather have Thome than Everett, and 2) realizes that KW really likes Everett, or he wouldn´t have traded for him twice. And, he specifically went after Konerko, who is one of the favorite players on the team for many Sox fans.

OG has also not exactly protected him in the media either, although most ex-Sox players are relatively respectful in their comments on his contributions, rolling their eyes at some of his other comments that are more provocative.

That's why Everett gets booed. Cause he can't keep his damn mouth shut.

Didn't hear it (MLB.tv crapout), and I'm really sorry it happened. You have to attribute it to bandwagon or casual fans; I would hope that any real Sox fans would appreciate Carl's contribution to the World Championship.

They just booed him very loudly just now in the top of the 8th. I can see they do it because of what he said about the organization, but I think that any member of the 2005 WORLD CHAMPION WHITE SOX, no matter who it is or how big their role was, deserves a standing o everytime they come back. period. It's going to be pretty interesting when Frank comes back in a few weeks......

Carl got some huge hits for the Sox last year down the stretch, starting with the two straight triples in Detroit. I could never bring myself to boo him...especially after he went after Garner.

So White Sox fans should boo Ozzie and Fisk who have said far worse about the organization over the years?

I would hope people would not be stupid enough to boo the greatest player in franchise history, but it's gotten to the point where some people will find an excuse to trash anyone just to make themselves feel better.

I think most Sox fans realize that leaving Chicago after sixteen years was difficult for Frank, and I also think that most people realize that it's impossible to compare Frank leaving to Everett leaving. Furthermore, since the initial incident with KW, Frank has kept his mouth shut.

Gotta say...

Anyone who boos Frank has no class and, in all likelihood, was not Sox fan until last October. I feel the same way about anyone who boos a player on the 25 man team from last year. I won't tolerate it.

Ef 'em.

Well you "edited" your post and why would you say what I quoted if you didn't mean it? You weren't out there booing and I am glad you don't agree with booing Everett or our other ex team members but I don't think a negative comment about the team that dumped you should result in fans forgetting their past accomplishments.

I thought Kenny crossed the line in his Frank comments but that doesn't mean I am going to boo Kenny either.

All I was saying is that I get where it's coming from - as opposed to a guy like Thome who basically got booed for not playing for the Indians anymore.

It's also pretty hypocritical of him to make remarks like that because after the Sox won the World Series last year, he told all of the doubtersduring the 2005 season to "shut yo mouths."

Carl needs to ****, but he shouldn't have been booed. I will stand up and cheer for every member of the 2005 team who comes to play the Sox in the future before their first at bat. We did something very special last year, and I don't think we would have gotten to the playoffs withour Carl.

As for his comments, he was dead wrong, but can you blame him? He is bitter as hell because HE WANTS TO STILL BE ON THE SOX. He knows that this team is great, and could win several more championships. Instead, he is toiling in Seattle, a going-nowhere franchise.

Carl's comments are just like the 8th grade boy making fun of a girl who turned him down. "I don't wanna date her anyway. She is so ugly and dumb."

DickAllen72
05-03-2006, 11:19 PM
Carl's comments about the Sox were very mild.

He said he didn't think they will repeat because the team with the best talent doesn't always win. True ( the part about the best team not always winning).

He said Paulie was not a vocal leader. True. He said A.J. would emerge as the team leader. Probably true.

He said he thought KW should have picked up his option. Can you blame him? He wants to be on the Sox. I guess that makes him a bad guy.

The real reason he gets so much hate from "fans" has nothing to do with baseball. It has to do with politics. Some people can't tolerate others with different political or religious views.

I'll bet a majority of those who boo Carl would be cheering him if either he believed he descended from monkies, or he was an advocate of gay marriage.

Booing a key member of the 2005 World Champion White Sox because you don't agree with his personal beliefs is petty and classless. Those who did so belong at Wrigley field.

It was pretty scattered and not really a passionate booing, but noticeable. We politely applauded him to thank him for last year.

Some drillrods behind us kept chanting "Carl Carwash" when he came up. Huh??

I was amazed by the fools booing Crazy Carl. My brother and I stood up and clapped for him at his first at bat and continued to cheer for him a bit. I actually yelled at people in my section for booing him. They replied back with he talks to much crap...be that as it may he still contributed to winning a World Series for us. These were probably the same people that got kicked out for fighting. I record 5 times security had to come escort people out of our surrounding sections for fighting. A few times there were 2 groups getting kicked out at the same time.....Simply ridiculous

05-03-2006, 11:33 PM
I was in the upper deck tonight and I don't know how it sounded on TV but from where I was, it seemed that there was a lot more applause than booing. Considering he helped us wind a World Series, I don't feel any booing was acceptable but I didn't feel it was that much and orders of magnitude less than what Thome got in Cleveland.

Why does booing someone automatically make them a bandwagon fan?

I respectfully disagree with a lot of you. Being a true fan does not mean blindly falling in love with a player just because he played on the Sox. I don't necessarily care if Carl gets boo'd or not. To me its a nonissue. Who cares? People have a valid reason to be upset with him.

I'm always proud that Sox fans Boo'd all the AL central teams, the cubs, and our own manager during the AllStar game we hosted a few years ago. I like some attitude.

If you don't preform, or put your foot in your mouth, you are open for criticism. This is the same guy who said that fans don't know anything about the game. I mean, its not like he was that beloved anyways.

Who makes the Boo-able and NonBoo-able list? I'd like to get my hands on it, cause when I come home from school, I plan on making it to a lot of games.

I don't understand these threads. There has been a lot of them lately too. Some people are upset with CrazyCarl..... why is this newsworthy?

05-03-2006, 11:49 PM
I don't usually boo former players because that's just not me. Here are some additional reasons:
- Magglio: he used to be my favorite player. Sure, he acted stupid and the whole feud with Ozzie was just ridiculous, but I enjoyed watching Maggs on this team.
- Carl: I didn't appreciate his comments, but he was part of the WS team. I mean, come on! I still remember him celebrating and looking for his wife after the final win.
- Frank - with the Sox for so long, never wanted to leave, he has a right to be upset. Pretty much the face of the organization in recent decades. Boo him? Never!

Pretty much it boils down to this: good memories. I understand that players move on. And while I think slamming your former team is dumb, I refused to be bothered by that. I would probably cheer Frank and stay quiet when the others are at bat.

I was in the lower deck, and I heard cheering his first time up. I thought it was respectful and appreciative -- pretty nice. This turned to boos in later at bats, but that was same sort of reaction that we'd have to any player on the other team who was hitting the ball well. And he was stinging it.

It wasnt that bad. I was anticipating more booing from drunken fans.
I just sat there when he came up each time as well as most of the people in my section as if it were Jose Lopez up to bat.

But crazy Carl can add Chicago to his ever growing list of ex-teams who could care less that hes no longer a member of.

05-04-2006, 01:21 AM
From where I was in 110 I noticed a good number of people cheering his first time up along with the booing. It was only in the 8th after we blew the lead and the mood in the place had turned rather toxic that I noticed the booing get intense. At that point I think the crowd would have booed Santa Claus after watching us lose that lead.

That said, I personally applauded his first time up, and then after that made the same sound I make for 99% of our opponents...the sound of silence.

Carl left with a ring on his finger, Magglio left with a huge pile of cash on the table (well it was there before he turned it down). That's a big difference.

Totally wrong. Carl left this place involuntarily. He's pissed he wasn't brought back. My feeling is he would have stayed for very little money because he loves the team and loves the situation. How would you feel if you left a World Champ to go to the Seattle Mariners when it's not really what you wanted to do??

Magglio left after everyone begged him to stay while throwing piles of money at him.

Ozzie is quoted as having said bad things about the Sox when he was let go because he really wanted to stay and was pissed of he had to go.

Carl's a good man and he'll have my total respect until the day I die.

Exactly. As long as the Sox remain a championship caliber organization with a GREAT clubhouse, when people are not invited back, they will miss the place. Everyone deals with that in their own way. Rowand is sad and has not said much or has said nice things, but some guys are hurt by it and say things they probably don't really mean.

05-04-2006, 02:43 AM
For what it's worth... My friends and I were in 115 tonight and made it a point to give Carl a standing ovation when he first came up in the second inning. Everyone on this board knows that he has a big mouth. He had it before, during, and after his tenure in Chicago. That hasn't changed. However, his big mouth doesn't trump the fact that he practically carried the team through the first month of the season last year, and that he was an integral part of the World Series championship that we've all got to relish in over the past six months.

Bravo Carl.

And PS, if anyone in that entire park so much as thinks as booing Frank on the 22nd, well...I'll leave it at that.

While I definitely did not cheer him last night, I was not going to boo him either. Though his stupid comments did nothing to endear Carl to me, anyone who gives **** to Phil Garner is okay in my book.

I guess the 14K bandwagoners in the stands felt it was appropriate.

A lot of booing is just young people having fun...they don't really mean it. Just like Everett and Frank running their mouths out of frustration.

Not good, but welcome to professional sports. He isn't here because his athletic skills aren't what Ozzie and Kenny wanted on this team. We don't have a 4th outfielder/dh type...we have utility players on the bench (all 4 of them, really). As it is, we rescued the man twice from losing situations and put him on a contender. Disappointed I can understand...but angry and bitter? That's his problem, because there's no reason for that attitude.

That said, he served the Sox well, played hard, did his best and wasn't disruptive (as best I can tell).

Booing is not bad, but it should be saved for people who deserve it. Carl Everett was a major reason why this team has a World Series trophy and represented this organization very well in his time here. Balanced against him shooting his mouth off a few times that should not merit a hostile response from a fanbase that supposedly prides itself on its baseball acumen. I have no problem with booing people. I spent 3 straight days booing Torii Hunter every time he moved a muscle. If someone attacks our team boo the hell out of them. But I just don't understand why you would go out of your way to show hostility to a guy who is a big reason that we all got to see our baseball dream fulfilled last October. It just makes no sense to me. If you don't want to actively cheer, I can understand that. But to boo the guy just seems silly.

But I just don't understand why you would go out of your way to show hostility to a guy who is a big reason that we all got to see our baseball dream fulfilled last October. It just makes no sense to me. If you don't want to actively cheer, I can understand that. But to boo the guy just seems silly. I personally would have done what you stated you did in your earlier post. Gave him the ovation for his first at bat and ignored him on the others. I really need to get riled up to boo, my vocal chords can't take it anymore. Definitely bad form by those booing his first at bat but after that I could care less if anyone boo's him. There's nothing wrong with it. The only booers I hate are the obnoxious swearing ones that ruin an entire at bat/inning/etc. doing it. But there's just as many obnoxious cheerers that do the same. Flailing around, spilling beer, bumping into you, ruining my churro.

99% of athletes love the boing by opposing fans because 99% of the time it's because you're doing something right. I loved being booed.

Carl has been boo'd every where he has played...I was at Fenway for the Sox game last year, WOW...granted he did spit in the face of the manager, but Carl rocks the boat everywhere he goes....I don't think the boo's were that bad and he didn't seem to care

People are always going to boo players, no matter what contributions that palyer might have made to the team. Sometimes people just don't like a certain player, and it has mostly to do with the attitude of the player or things the player has said in the past. I know Thomas is probably the greatest player to ever wear a White Sox uniform, but there are going to be people who simply don't like him, including long time White Sox fans. Sometimes a player's performance on the field cannot overcome the attitude he has or the things he has said. I have always said Thomas is a great baseball player, but as a person I don't care much for him. I wouldn't boo or cheer Thomas if I was at the game, I'd just sit there and watch him bat and probably cheer if he struck out or something because he's not part of the Sox anymore. I know my father and my Uncle have never liked Thomas and I know they both would boo him if they were at a game.

It never ceases to amaze me how some people liked Carl Everett on the Sox.

Carl was a big contributor to last years success and winning a world series puts a player in a special category for at least another season.

Carl is hurting us at the plate more than with his mouth. He had the only rbi last nite for awhile and in our two losses in seattle he played a big part.

I think booing him will just fire him up all the more.

I say we treat all members of last years team with respect, especially Frank.

Go Sox!

Carl's first at-bat lead off the second inning and it caught me off guard. Before I even had the chance to clap, the music was blaring and he was in the box already. I dont care who it is, if they were part of the team last year I'm gonna clap. Even Viz. I'm not sure how you can justify booing and not clapping for someone who was a part (big or small) of 2005.

I hated him more then I liked him...he was a servicable replacement for Frank when he went down....he had some big HRs and RBI's, but when he went cold, he went cold...how many times did he K in big situations?

I don't know if everyone heard these boos in the section that they were sitting or on TV, but where I was at (sec 161) I didn't hear any booing when Everett was up all game until the 8th inning - and that seemed to be more because the Sox had just lost their lead and wanted to take it out on Crazy Carl, so the knuckleheads around us now had a reason to boo.

Carl played hard, stuck up for his teammates (remember Houston?), and helped us win a ring. I may not like the ridiculous things he says, but I will never boo the guy.

What was the point of booing Everett? He did plenty for this team. The fans should have at least ignored him if they didn't like him. From what I heard there was plenty of booing for Crazy Carl. I think that's pretty low of our fans.

Well remember, our team sucks and wont go anywhere cuz we lost the chemistry of willie harris and Crazy carl

I didn't boo, I didn't cheer when came to bat. I was indifferent.

i gave him a standing o when he came up, and no1 around me did. in fact, it sparked a discussion with about 15 people in the surrounding area. those he booed and made fun just kept bringing up 3rd place and dinosaurs. i thought it was pretty classless, and rather infuriating..

I don't know how anyone could boo someone that was on the 25-Man roster last year, no matter what they said or did.I agree, I won't boo any of the players who brought the championship to our white Sox! Carl was a solid part of bringing it home, it's a shame.

It's absurd to boo Everett, considering he was let by the Sox and did not leave as a free agent. Same would go for Thomas.

If Rownd ends up back in the AL or the Sox mee the Phillies or in interleague, you couldn't fault him because he was traded away

Same reason some boo Magglio. Cuz he left this place in terrible form, and talked smack after he left. He deserves the boos for running his mouth off after being let go. Unfortunate or not this is it. Magglio, Carl and Frank when he comes to town. They just could not control their yappers. So they get boo'd. It is what it is. Cleveland fans must have boo'd Thome cause he left for the Philly money. He didn't say anything that could have caused it. They're idiots and that's why no more 10 cent beer nights.

But he did. "They're gonna have to tear the Cleveland jersey off my back."

But he did. "They're gonna have to tear the Cleveland jersey off my back." They (Philly) tore his jersey off with huge $. Maggs, Carl, Frank are viewed as yappers. Fair or not

Exactly. And when you put his personality in the mix, mediocre performance + a big yapper = boooooooo!
