No fan base is comprised of 100% douches.

Some fan bases come pretty close, though.

I'm personally loving the silence from my White Sox relatives about the Cubs.

Being by the Illinois border, we have a lot of Illinois co workers.  They hate when you ask "Why do you need two teams in Chicago... is one a spare?  What if they both suck that year?"

Season tickets up behind the plate gets you playoff tickets in the bleachers? The douches are in the fornt office.

And who ARE all the people in all those seats between their regular seats and the bleachers and how do they get them?

I used to laugh when I heard that because most of them were Brewer fans.

Every fanbase has its assholes.  Plus the Cubs have been especially visible over the years because of the "curse" and because there are a lot of us, even outside of Illinois, and so there's more of a spotlight when the fans do dumb shiat.  That may change, but I think there's still a lot of fans out there from when all the games were on WGN and you could catch the Cubs anywhere in the country.  That was great when my family lived in NV, MI, and AZ in the 80s and 90s.

What happened to all the national Braves fans from TBS doing the same?

I'M NOT A DOUCHE!

Okay, I am, but many Cubs fans are not.

Sports fans in general suck.

I worked as day of game staff for the Mariners for 8 years and saw fans from every team.  I found pretty much all of the Cubs fans I encountered to be friendly and pleasant to be around.  I have nothing but good things to say about Cubs fans.

What are the odds that Subby is a Cardinals fan?

I sit close to two Cards fans at work...the Cubs hate flows like wine when I'm at the office during baseball season.

1) To be honest, I don't remember meeting a bad one....and my childhood dentist was a huge Cubs fan.

2) My ex hated the Cubs and she wasn't into sports at all.  She hated them because a previous boyfriend was a fan, and they relationship didn't end well.  I wonder if she. Ow hates the Seahawks because of me.  :-)

The largest assemblage of baseball douches are currently Red Sox Nation, who took over the title of world's worst set of fans from Yankees fans.  I remember, it wasn't all that long ago that Red Sox fans were mostly a group of long-suffering losers who wallowed in their inevitable defeat.  But, that's what breaking a century's long curse and a decade or more of success will do for you -- turn you into a collection of douches.

How many games did they play the Cubs in those 8 years?  Couldn't have been many interleague between those two.
