If I were Brooks, I would eat up all the PR this video is getting. Who would think a video to a popular song would generate so much negative feedback . You'd think the Sox did something wrong.

But for those that hate it, keep gabbing. It's giving the Sox a lot of PR.

On what planet is this a "popular song"? It's not even recent. The Sox probably didn't want to pony up the licensing fee for a more current, hip, band like Limp Bizkit (teal implied).

Brooks Boyer has to rank among the worst marketing guys in the business. He's the anti-John McDonough. The fans are ultimately to blame for Sox attendance woes but their marketing department sure isn't helping. A chimpanzee could have generated some sustained excitement and ticket sales from a World Series Championship but not Boyer. He continues to play the sports marketing equivalent of 'small ball.'

For the poster that got a response from Boyer, can you paraphrase?
