Sox Nation Citizenship Cards??

Sox Nation Citizenship Cards??

Postby RILefty4 » 09 Dec 2004, 10:13

First they were $5... fans were insulted.

So MLB comes back with the new price of $9.95 a few "perks". Seems to me like a shameless attempt to get all the money they can from the bandwagon fans. I can't see any self-respecting fan buying this.

Soxaholix put it best:
"the most heinous sumptuary tax since King George tried to F*$& us with our stamps and tea."

I don't need a $10 card to be a Sox fan.


Just a $20 hat. :)

Is anyone else sick of Major League Baseball hijacking the term Red Sox Nation? I will never pay Bud Selig $10 to prove I'm a Red Sox fan..."I feel very strongly about this"

Nation citizenship cards? Wow, that's just a retarded idea. Of course, if it was the team's idea and they got all the money, I'd prorbably buy one just to support them. But under no circumstances will I give Bud Selig more money on one of his ridiculous marketing ploys that he uses to take advantage of the fans.

I'm on the same page as you guys and the Boston Dirt Dogs, it's just a ridiculous idea. The excuse that they are using is laughable, at best. "They want to gage the amount of Red Sox fans outside New England", please. I've got an idea, try watching a few away games and seeing for yourself how many Red Sox fans show up. That should give you an idea. MLB, please stop trying to insult our intelligence.

Anyone who buys a Red Sox Nation membership card should be permanently banned from Fenway Park because they are clearly not a Red Sox fan.
Let me be very clear. I AM NOT A 49ers FAN!!!

Being a Sox fan is like being a Man. If you need to buy something to prove you're a Man, you're not a Man.

Lets not forget that John Kerry is a card carrying member of Red Sox Nation. That worked out well for him.

Give the guy a break, as soon as he said Manny Ortez he corrected himself. You hear "Manny Ortez" all the time because WEEI is a rightwing station, especially that neo-nazi Callahan.

lol, I'll take a guy who is willing to change his mind over a man who picks a direction (usually for selfish reasons, or worse, arbitrarily) and then charges full speed ahead and damn the consequences (cuz it's not like anyone he actually knows is gonna suffer them).
