What difference does it make? If I say none, then you'll say I'm not a real fan and thus my opinion doesn't matter. If I say 81, then you'll say I'm a hardcore fan and shouldn't care what the uniform situation is.

Yes, a winning team on the field is what ultimately matters. But if the "little things" don't matter at all, then why do we have a marketing department? Oh, right, because the little things add up, and while one little thing here and there doesn't make or break an organization, a boatload of little things is the difference between an organization that the fanbase is actually proud of versus an organization that leaves its diehards constantly banging their heads in frustration.

I don't love my wife any less when she wears a T-shirt and a hoodie out on a date with me, but that doesn't mean I can't want her to dress nicer. I don't love the White Sox any less when they make dumbass marketing moves, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't want them to not be dumbasses.
