There are many White Sox fans who seem proud to be negative under the guise of keeping it real.
I will agree that White Sox fans can be a bit cynical and also can be a group of fatalists, however, I've never felt our fans disrespect the players. If you play hard here and play well, White Sox fans are extremely loyal. Heck, sometimes all you have to do is play hard and not be that good to get our loyalty. (i.e. Aaron Rowand)
