Oh, I agree, it's only part of the picture. We all know about the Sox losing a generation of fans with the ill-considered Sportsvision pay-TV venture, etc. That generation now has children of their own that are being raised as Cubs fans as well.
However, it's part of the picture that needs to be pointed out to the media when they ask. Their role in it should be shown to them.
