The same as any fanbase - totally agree. There is really nothing special about Sox fans in that regard. One could argue that the % of fans at a particular game that are there solely for the game and pay a ton of attention is higher at the Cell, if that makes one feel better, but I am not even sure that is true. Sox fans ripping on the Chads and Trixies at Wrigley is a good way to dig at die hard Cubs fans, but really, I don't see that numbers would support such contentions.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
