I'm with you. In fact, I'm calling out every Sox fan who says that. IF the team decides to go into full tear-down-to-rebuild mode, will you support the team the same way during that time as you would if they were winning 90+ games a year? That means attending the same number of games, buying the same amount of concessions, buying the same amount of merchandising, etc. If not, I'm calling hypocrisy.
"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
