[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The media's treatment of this team is just not warranted : YOU HAVE IT COMPLETELY BACKWARDS!!!! The Red Sox have the money to field a great team because the fans care so much and are willing to buy the product with respect to, tickets, radio coverage, tv coverage, newspaper coverage, & everything RS paraphernalia! The players are able to make the huge salaries here STRICTLY BECAUSE the fans care so much, BUY EVERYTHING RS, make the ownership big $$$$$, making it possible to field a high $ team. This is not a difficult concept! With our big spending (by the fans), comes big expectations!!! Anybody who spends big on anything, has big expectations!!!! This is capitalist econ 101! When the brand / manufacturer you love puts out a lemon in any given year, the loyal customers raise holy hell!!!!! No matter what the product, there is hell to pay, & the media never sugar coats what happened to the product. They tell it like it is, or the customers stop listening to them. NOBODY is going to listen to "the media" if they simply become part of the PR department for said brand manufacturer!! WAKE UP! REAL WORLD!

Here's a good analogy.....
We all were sick of the GW Bush product. We switched our allegiance to the Obama Brand. It sure looked good!!! Flashy new product. Sounded great!!!
Now we've been driving this brand new Obama for 3 1/2 years, the wheels have fallen off, the steering wheels has locked to the extreme LEFT, the car has smashed through the guard rail for every Obama driver, & we're all about to crash on the rocks below..........
The MSM is still telling us ............. "we're driving the best Lexus to date! Any problems we might think we see are the fault of the Bush design & engineering! This car is still the best car ever made, & those unhappy customers who were hopeful really always hated Lexus to begin with. We simply need to give the Lexus another 4 years of driving so we can truly see how great this car is........"
Sorry! The majority of customers simply aren't buying it any longer. We've stopped listening to many in the MSM who are CLEARLY ACTING AS A PR EXTENSION FOR LEXUS! As a result, the MSM's ratings are crashing & burning! Their ratings are beyond pathetic, & many in the MSM are literally going under because NOBODY IS LISTENING TO THEM ANYMORE! Again..... Capitalist ECON 101!!!!!
Sorry to be political, but it is the best analogy I could come up with, and fits the OP perfectly!!!!
p.s. I contributed to Obama in 08! I simply won't get fooled again. If you want to listen to the Lexus PR extension team???? Good on ya! :)
