Very well said. It's always easy to blame the fan base but the fact remains the White Sox are still the ONLY original major league franchise to have never made the postseason in consecutive seasons and MLB has had expanded playoffs since 1969.

Never...not in over 100 years.

I understand why fans are skeptical when a particular team comes out of nowhere for a season (or less than a season as has usually been the case since 2003.)

Again it's about ticket prices, it's about the economy, it's about on-field performance, it's about recent history on the field, it's about advertising and marketing, it's about walk-up sales, and yes to a small extent it's even about the fan base.

There's no one single factor. That shouldn't be hard to understand.

Trying to place blame or zero in on "the reason" is foolish and counter productive. It's a combination of things...some outside of the Sox control, some in their control and some because they have shot themselves in the foot on more than one occasion.
