Any time Williams mentions the word "fans," the same people keep whining that he's blaming them.
How many of these times have you interpreted his comments as so without him actually blaming the fans?
The Sox attendance this year was awful for a team in first place for the majority of the season. It doesn't matter who is to blame, and what the reasons were behind it. He is stating a fact. Less fans in stadium does take away an energy that is simply impossible for 15,000 die hards to create. He then states this an issue that needed to be addressed, and now it is being addressed.
What is the problem here? Should he act like everything is perfectly fine so he doesn't hurt some fans' feelings?
