I bought front row seats to a Red Sox game a couple of years ago. When my wife and I got to our seats there was another couple sitting in them and they refused to move. So we got an usher involved. They still refused to move. So the usher got a cop who threatened to arrest them. They got up, gave us the stink eye and the woman muttered "*ssholes" as she walked past us. I'm not sure who's worse: Texas A&M fans or Red Sox fans. But they're both among the worst in all of sport.

FTFG:  "Convinced that there must be a written rule that in order to be a Red Sox fan, you have to be a complete and utter POS. Wow!"

Who is actually disputing this characterization of Red Sox Fans? The post 2004 years make this a scientific fact.

*Profile check*
Yeaaaahhhh... sure it does.

It really does. I've been a rays fan since the team started, and after years of dealing with smug NY fans, I can honestly say that the vitriol spewed by Red Sox fans is way worse. Really, it's just a game. It's OK to be happy that you're good again after a hundred years, but you don't have to  hate absolutely everyone you play against. It's really ridiculous.


There's a shiatton of Red Sox bandwagoners who think Ortiz never tested positive in 2003 and that he tested positive for a vitamin (lol).

WinoRhino: Tman144: Uh-huh, think what you want, but I've never been in a verbal argument with anyone over sports, ever. This is all based on observation. Generally, the NY fans are the smug, "good luck next year, ha ha," while the Boston fans are "You suck, your town sucks, I hate all of you, blah blah." Also, my brother lives in MA and relays all the bullshiat that gets spewed on talk radio. I was going to wear my Rays shirt in Boston one day and my brother said not to, that I'd probably get shiat thrown at me if I did. Believe what you want though.

You're proving my point. Rather than reply to my completely reasonable post essentially saying that "every team has fans that are jerks" you double-down with the idea that every Boston fan is an asshole. Sure, your brother told you not to wear a Rays jersey. I bet. *roll eyes*. There are plenty of different fan jerseys at Fenway all year-round because baseball fans want to see Fenway. Oldest park, blah blah blah. It's not out of place. And I listen to radio up here all day long and there isn't much of any vitriol spewed about other teams or their fans. One station's afternoon drive guy is actually not even a Boston sports team fan. It's pretty enjoyable not having a homer opinion constantly. And as a side note, I'm a Ravens fan. I went to both Patriots playoff games last year (Texans and Ravens) and wore my Rice jersey. Know how many problems I had? ZERO. And frankly, there's plenty of overlap between the fanbases, and football fans have a reputation of being somewhat more rowdy.

So as I said in my previous post, it tells me more about you and your mindset than anything else. You have this odd persecution complex at the hands of Red Sox fans. You have your brother monitor radio phone-ins (the smartest members of any teams fan base!) and let you know what they're saying about you. Sorry you think every one of them hates you and wants to beat you up. But they don't. It'll be okay... really.


You mean your completely reasonable post where you said we have no fans and you called me a jackass? Keep up the personal attacks though, it makes you seem very reasonable. I also like the part where you have to say there "isn't much" vitriol. Why, it's only a little bit of seething hatred, don't worry. There's only a slight chance some jackass will start shiat with you for no farking reason!

Of course, I wore the shirt anyway and nothing happened, he was just warning me. Look, man, I'm not attacking you personally, I'm just saying, some Boston fans are way out of line and take it way too personally. I didn't even realize you were a Boston fan at first, Jesus, sorry I insulted your honor. Go back to believing your jackass are just as jackassery as everyone else and pretend this conversation never happened.

I can't tell you what your experience has been, but as someone who was frequently in St. Pete for business in the last 10 years and has gone to the Trop for a lot of games, I gotta say my experience has been much, much different. The very few fans that showed up for games at the Trop were, for the most part, pretty good people, but there were always a few who were complete jackasses. In fact, the one time I attended a Yankees / Rays game down there I had to move seats (and thankfully there were plenty to choose from) because the Yankees and Rays jackasses started jawing at each other it was interminable and annoying.

When I hear people complain about being taunted by opposing team fans, or how an entire team's fan-base is a group of assholes, it tells me everything I need to know about the person doing the complaining: they usually belong to the minority group of fans of their team that act the same way.

One time I had this anecdotal experience where some Red Sox fans were being total dicks.  Everyone else is cool, tho.
