This makes my blood boil, they literally put in maximum effort just to insult us. **** them in every possible way.

This is just more motivation for us to continue to make ourselves known in the sports world. We're not going away, ever, they have no choice but to get used to it.

Remember, when it comes to Chi town winning the WS in our lifetimes, we did it 1st, and we did it better. 11-1.

The fight continues...

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.

Not that it matters, but if this current crop of players lead the Sox to another WS, I think they'll do so with a little more fanfare.
I really think that it wasn't our personnel...for the ESPN guys it's personal! We beat their beloved Red Sox 04 World series team, so they will exclude the White Sox championship so people forget the Red Sox got beat so thoroughly that year by a clearly better team. But..but..but...we have Manny and Big Papi!

This is a trend. When the same "mistake" happens over and over again, you can't help but wonder if this is intentional. Still, many people around baseball (even fans of the Cubs) quickly called them out on it. Rightfully so; it isn't fair for any team's accomplishments to be forgotten.

It's intentional and they're getting the exact response they want....

Agree it's intentional. One of many reasons not to support their brand.

The ALDS with Chris Berman was particularly laughable. He sounded so unprepared. "Next up is Joe...uhhh...Crede? The, uh, (papers rustling sound) third baseman for Chicago...". And: "Neal Cotts is a local boy because he's from Belleville..."

I was listening to Waddle and Silvy the other day when Michael Wilbon was on and talking about the way Easterners think about the Midwest. Basically, we're another country to them. We're not thought about, they don't care, we're irrelevant.

In my opinion, the only time they do care..is when they have no choice because of what they might consider something extaordinary, such as when the Bulls had Michael Jordan, the Cubs, because of how pathetic they were for many lifetimes, the '85 Bears, etc.

They simply consider the Midwest "fly-over" country on their way to the West Coast.

It just isn't acceptable.

Look, the 2005 White Sox don't deserve to be fawned over like they're the greatest team of all time. And I don't think that anybody here wants or would ever ask for that.

BUT:

People fawn over how special the 04 Red Sox were for ending an 86 year drought, and the 16 Cubs for bringing a championship to Chicago.

The 05 White Sox did both of those things. They ended a longer drought than the 04 Red Sox, and beat the Cubs to bringing Chicago a championship--and were far more dominant in the process.

If you're going to fawn over those other teams, then the 05 White Sox deserve just as much credit and respect--really, more, if anything. That's just a fact.

Trying to pretend they never happened is just reprehensible. Whether people like it or not, it took place, and deserves credit. Nobody is asking for the over the top insanity the Red Sox and Cubs get, but there's a big difference between that and trying to will the 05 White Sox out of existence. The fact that is seems like it's asking a lot just to have people remember they exist is ludicrous.

Why not? Probably for the same reasons they constantly get stiffed by the national media.

This is true for the most part. In a broad sense, people are more self-absorbed out here. Unless someone or thing is a media darling, they won’t be on their radars. That said, what ESPN is doing is journalistic malpractice. No excusing it, really.

Yes, I agree. It is malpractice. Pure laziness.
