Do things like minor uniform tweaks and changing the intro video have a measurable impact on the team's popularity? I doubt it. But neither do they make the team more popular. So why spend time and resources on them when they don't serve to sell more tickets and merely peeve off a sliver of the fanbase?
This board fancies itself as a message board for diehard White Sox fans. Shouldn't diehard White Sox fans be complaining about Gavin Floyd et al rather than stripes on some pants and trying to find some deeper sinister meaning for the change?
