Sox go out and do something as trivial as limiting the role of the organ player or getting rid of a patch on the jersey or trying to change the pregame video and the fanbase FREAKS.
Your screwed no matter what you do.
Limiting the role of the organ player is not a "fresh idea"- it's just following the herd- after Nancy Faust was such a great tradition for 30+ years and created a very unique (and now disappearing) tradition of Na-Na after a big home run or knocking a pitcher out of the game.
The orginal pre-game video was widely praised- the new one isn't very well done- I don't think Sox fans are against GOOD new ideas- just against bad ideas or badly executed ideas.
Why eliminating the patch would be considered a "fresh idea" is beyond me (don't really care about that one much)
