There is one thing in common between sox and and stankee fans and what is that you might ask?
We both have very high expectations of our teams and sure we bitch and moan over every play and every game but don't you think we have the right after paying so much money to sit in a stadium that the seats are so small and the traffic is so bad and not to mention the years of dissapointment.
The stankees on the other hand are used to winning and this is why you have so many fans. As long as you win you will have a high fan base. Who would have thought the Pats would be two time superbowl champs 4 years ago? I did. But now all of a sudden the fan base has risen to an all time high, just because they win. I'm not saying thats a bad thing, I'm just saying. Stankee fans have also come to expect more from their teams, to a certain extent they are even worse then sox fans, and you also have a right to that.
So what is there to do when you can't bash your own team, bash the rival fans
Its all in good fun, though some fans do take it a little more serious then others. Case in point, that melee in Oakland the other day. That was horrible.
I have several friends who are stankee fans and we bash each and its all in good fun. We all realize that in the end its just a game and there is no reason for the hatred we've seen.
