Of course there have been serious issues with the franchise before then, with this particular ownership the first one was the SportsVision decision (a very good one, but ahead of its time and doomed to failure with long term implications.) followed by the "philosophy" espoused by Eddie Einhorn that the Sox were going to be "Chicago's American League team..." and not to even challenge the Cubs for a rightful place in their own market at a time when the Cubs were awful and all the momentum in the area was towards the Sox especially after they signed Fisk and Luzinski.

So many wasted golden opportunities through being short sighted, vindictive or simply re-active instead of pro-active.
