Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

They've paid $140 million and then some for their team. When they travel to other parks since they erased the curse of the Bambino in 2004, bandwagon fans make up anywhere from a third to half of the crowd. Even when their team isn't playing, you can find Sox fans in any Major League ballpark in the country (and Toronto) sporting their Sox gear like Hells Angels sporting their colors. Red Sox fans will chant "Yankees Suck," at a Cubs-Cardinals game in St. Louis. I, for one, am getting pretty sick of the Bloody Sox, and I don't think I'm alone. In the comments section below, tell us your why you think the Red Sox and their fans have become the least tolerable in sports. -- Sean Cronin

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
