Not sure if I am too late for this or not:

One question I have is do the Sox feel that the targeting of new fans, less passionate (Cub Converts), they are hindering the experience for passionate, long-term fans.

My biggest thought is back in 03-07, When the Sox would win, the Tunnels were roof shaking with chants of "Lets Go White Sox".... This seems to fade more and more each year.

What can the White Sox do to relight that fire, that passion?

I went to plenty of games during that stretch and I heard that chant on the walk out the park after a game... maybe twice. And even then, to say the roofs were shaking would be quite a stretch.

I won't lie, its been 10 years, I could be remembering this more around world series time, but I went to probably 15 games in 05, and then shared season tickets with a member of WSI in 06, and I remember the energy from those 2 seasons being totally unmatched. I thought I recall it prior to 05 and the WS run, but its been a while

Default Bill Gleason

Lip: Bill Gleason said alot of things. The night before the final vote in Springfield to vote for the funding of the new Comiskey Park, Gleason told me he was sick of the Reinsdorf/Einhorn ownership and hoped they would move the team to St. Pete. He said St. Pete would be a graveyard for baseball. He also said Chicago would get another American League team after the White Sox went to Florida. After the White Sox stayed in Chicago Gleason went on the Score a few years later and said the White Sox paid off the politicians to get the deal done here in Chicago. Gleason said alot of things, some of which were absolutely crazy. Probably the one thing he did that topped everything else was when he left the Chicago Sun Times because he said was being discriminated against because of his age and then becoming a has been in Chicago. If he would not of quit the Sun Times like he did the Sun Times would not of hired the one and only Count Dracula of journalism, Jay Mariotti.
