Our scoreboard situation is a joke. For a team that plays in a park that has struggled for years to overcome a reputation of blandness, it doesn't help that the scoreboards are undersized, hard to read, and gives the impression that it was cutting edge for the 1990s.

The ad space would pay for it in no time.
The current ribbon boards at the park are a joke. Unlike ribbon boards at other parks, it's 100% ads and silly graphics. Sure, other parks' boards have this too, but they at least also put in some game stats on those boards some of the time.

White Sox Baseball
# of teams with a longer playoff drought = 3:
San Diego (2006), Miami (2003), Seattle (2001)

# of teams with fewer playoff appearances since 1995 = 5:
Kansas City* (2), Toronto** (1), Miami (2), Washington (2), Milwaukee (2)

# of Sox seasons in the this decade that were arguably dismal failures = 4:
2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

Conclusion: Blame Sox fans for not showing up to enough games

* back to back AL Champs, WS Champs
** advanced to ALCS this year
