I don't believe that. Most folks here have forgot it.

Again 21 years ago. Your last playoff appearance.
Is this all you got?

Sounds like 250 mile thing is right.

The comments by announcers on STL Channel 11 during the game yesterday rang true.

"Where would the Royals be if they hadn't traded. Dye, Damon,
Beltran, a decent team"

But with Glass and his artifical $35M salary ceiling....
it will never happen.

Also Need Pitching to win.

Get a new owner.

You can go back to replacing the Red Sox as the biggest chokers in baseball. At least the Royals won it when we had our shot. You know I wouldn't give two shits about the tards if I didn't get so ****ing tired of hearing about their generation after generation of fan support and tradition from every douchebag from St. Louis. If they endured 21 years of not making the playoffs that tradition would shrink faster than an East St. Louis crack whore.

It's pretty pathetic. More than 20 years later, no matter how many times they beat us, they still feel inadequate.

Do you see Steeler fans still sniffling about how we beat them in the playoffs almost 20 years ago? Do Royals fans despise the Phillies? Are Yankee fans even hanging banners up <5 years later about how much they dislike the Marlins?

Bunch of crybabies. Projecting frustration about their perennial choke onto us for something that happened before many of them were out of diapers.

Hence the sign about KC 250 miles from baseball.

The Cards put up a good team, year in and year out.

When I meet one individual Cardinals fan, they will always claim they don't care and they don't even consider us rivals. But God forbid the Royals ever beat them, or even split a series or something, or you will see the waterworks fire up.

The relationship has a LOT in common with KU and MU relationship.

Mention of that makes Cardinals fans pretty angry, since most of them are MU fans and don't want to be likened to KU fans. But... the similarities are sometimes hard to ignore.

From the St. Louis Post Dispatch today - and this is exactly true - there is not a more insecure fan base than the one right here in St. Louis:

http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/sports/columnists.nsf/danoneill/story/6E8C63DBB1DBB6E48625719E00323302?OpenDocument

------------------
Baseball fans - There is a notion, created by the media and regarded as gospel by our more insecure locals, that St. Louis has "the best baseball fans in America." Based on what? Red shirts?

The Chicago Cubs play in a pint-size trash bin and drew three million with a fourth-place club last season. How are we better fans? The Cardinals have had six consecutive winning seasons and five postseason gigs in the same time. How hard it is to be a Cardinals fan?

You have to respect product awareness as well as product loyalty. The Royals lost 104 and 106 games the past two seasons. Who is to say the 1.37 million who showed up for that crud last summer aren't baseball's best fans?

Yup. Unfortunately the tards have multiple examples of postseason series where they had the superior team and got beat. Look at the Royals

1980 series they make a decent showing but lost out to a better Philly team. No shame in that.

1984 playoffs. No shame in losing to the eventual WS champion Detroit Tigers

1985 series Royals come up big against the Jays and come from behind to beat the Tards. This would begin the tards 20+ tradition of choking when they got to the post season.

You look at the Tards history since 85 and I'd say they are well on pace to eclipse the Red Sox as baseballs most infamous post season chokers.

No kidding. these Royals fans just need to move on.

Okay one more time for those who missed it or don't know. Most adults are fans of the teams that they grew up rooting for correct?

When you grow up in Springfield, Mo the vast majority of the people are St. Louis Cardinal fans and Kansas City Chiefs fans. They are loyal to the teams not the cities.
If we were to be loyal to the area we live in, then we would have had to have been Ozark Mountain Ducks fans. WTF is a Mountain Duck?

Yup. Unfortunately the tards have multiple examples of postseason series where they had the superior team and got beat. Look at the Royals

1980 series they make a decent showing but lost out to a better Philly team. No shame in that.

1984 playoffs. No shame in losing to the eventual WS champion Detroit Tigers

1985 series Royals come up big against the Jays and come from behind to beat the Tards. This would begin the tards 20+ tradition of choking when they got to the post season.

You look at the Tards history since 85 and I'd say they are well on pace to eclipse the Red Sox as baseballs most infamous post season chokers.
Well, having Marty, er, LaRussa as manager doesn't hurt. They blew the 85 series. In 87 they had a 3-2 lead, blew the World Series.

In 96 they had a 3-1 lead against the Braves in the NLCS, looked like they were going to the World Series... in the next three games they got outscored 32-1 and lost the series. That is pretty impressive.

In 2000 they had the Ankiel meltdown, one of the most famous playoff disasters in history.

In 2001 they lost 3-2 in the first round on a walkoff hit in the bottom of the 9th.

In 2004 they had the best record in baseball and looked great, then somehoow fell apart and got destroyed in the World Series. Same thing last year too, except it was in the NLCS. Pujols hitting a 500 mile homer off Lidge was about the only thing that saved that from being a bloodbath. Really when you look at it they might actually have a more painful playoff record than the Chiefs, if that's possible.

I doubt there are any towns that are Royals/Rams fans. That there says alot about the Cardinal fan base.

You have to remember a little history to understand. Stan the Man and Mickey Mantle etc. played on a minor league team in Springfield. KMOX's signal broadcast the games to 48 states at one time. I use to fall asleep at night listing to Jack Buck and Harry Carey on the radio telling me about what Gibson, Brock etc were doing tonight. My son is a 5th generation Cardinal fan.

From the St. Louis Post Dispatch today - and this is exactly true - there is not a more insecure fan base than the one right here in St. Louis:

------------------
Baseball fans - There is a notion, created by the media and regarded as gospel by our more insecure locals, that St. Louis has "the best baseball fans in America." Based on what? Red shirts?

The Chicago Cubs play in a pint-size trash bin and drew three million with a fourth-place club last season. How are we better fans? The Cardinals have had six consecutive winning seasons and five postseason gigs in the same time. How hard it is to be a Cardinals fan?

You have to respect product awareness as well as product loyalty. The Royals lost 104 and 106 games the past two seasons. Who is to say the 1.37 million who showed up for that crud last summer aren't baseball's best fans?

And, actually, I was hoping they weren't going to call the Springfield team the Cardinals. Just seems too copycat to me. Their logo is even practiaclly the same. Instead of one bird on the bat ours have two birds on the bat. I would still root for them though. I don't blame people for being fans of the professional teams in their area. If I was from KC, I would probably be a Royals fan. If I was from STL, I would probably be a Rams fan.

No kidding. You are supposed to support your home/nearest team, win or lose.

The Royals have a hardcore base that is still around even after 20 years of futility. Hell, at the old Busch on some days the fans couldn't sit through 6 innings of futility.

It isn't hard to be a fan by picking the best regular season team in a broad geographic region and designating that your team. For most of the year your team wins and you belittle all the other fans. Then on an untimely playoff exit you can switch over to "at least we're better than you". Not a terrible position. Not one that requires any effort or much loyalty.

Cardinals fans just know they're baseball's best
By JOE POSNANSKI
Columnist

ST. LOUIS - These here are baseball's best fans. I know this because there's a billboard beyond center field at Busch Stadium that says so.

This little fact -- baseball's best fans live in St. Louis -- was also prominently displayed in the city guide they thoughtfully left for me in my hotel room. And I heard it over the loudspeaker entering Sunday's game against the Royals. And I heard a couple of Cardinals fans praise each other for their general fanhood greatness, even after the Royals beat the Cardinals 5-2 Sunday and took the series.

"Moo!" one said.

"That's right," said the other.

Also, over the years, 1,473 conscientious St. Louis Cardinals fans have been kind enough to e-mail and alert me of their reigning status as baseball's best fans.

So, I do know for certain that Cardinals fans are baseball's best. I'm not questioning this for one minute. The only thing that confuses me is, well, forgive me here, I'm not quite sure how Cardinals fans became the best.

I had assumed it was because more of them go to baseball games that any other city. This seemed logical. But then I looked and saw that the Cardinals are actually fifth in attendance this year, which is good, don't get me wrong, please don't e-mail me, but unless my math is off, that doesn't make them the best.

So, I thought obviously this was just an off year for Cardinals fans. Hey, everybody is entitled to an off year. Harrison Ford has had a few lately. The only thing is, last year the Cardinals were actually sixth in attendance. And they were seventh the year before that.

At this pace, they will be No. 1 by 2007, which is quite good.
Still, the billboard doesn't say, "Looking forward to 2007, when we are projected to be baseball's best fans," or "Always among baseball's top 10 fans." And it also doesn't say "Baseball's best fans in 1987," which was the last time (and only time since 1970) the Cardinals actually led the major leagues in attendance.

So, obviously, there is something more subtle behind this whole "baseball's best fans," title, something that goes beyond those arbitrary and confusing "statistics," which merely show "how many fans show up."

But what? Well, you have to look at other qualities. For instance, there is general friendliness of the fans. I can honestly say that before Sunday, I had never had so many fans came up to me on the way to the ballpark to ask if I wanted to "buy or sell tickets." This shows you the caring nature of baseball fans here.

Then there is tradition. St. Louis is loaded with tradition. Many of the streets, for instance, have been under construction since 1922. Ha ha, just kidding there, I'm sure St. Louis has "construction's best workers," please don't e-mail me.

Fans here appreciate the great traditions of the game, such as singing "Take Me Out To the Ballgame," during the seventh-inning stretch, and also "Big Mac Land," and pretending that it hasn't been 21 years since they won and leaving in the eighth inning and mostly the grand tradition of driving motorcycles around the field before the game.

Yes, Sunday, more than a hundred Harley-Davidsons rode around before the game, making lots of noise and tearing up the warning track. Nobody ever fully explained why they did this, but I'm sure it was a great baseball tradition, dating back at least to Dizzy Dean, and, as you would expect from baseball's best fans, it was heartily done.

Most Cardinals fans will tell you that Cardinals fans are the best because they are the most knowledgeable. They understand the intricacies of the game. For instance, when Cardinals pitcher Cal Eldred walked Royals pitcher Jeremy Affeldt on four pitches Sunday, many of the fans booed. They knew, without anyone telling them, that this was not a good move.

Still, I have to admit, in three games, I didn't notice a whole lot of discussion about the wisdom of a pitcher bunting with runners on first and third. Instead, I saw a lot of people drinking beer. I saw a lot of kids eating cotton candy. I saw a lot of people shrieking after routine pop-ups because they thought they were home runs. I saw a lot of people screaming "balk," when the pitcher faked a throw to second, even though pretty much the first thing they teach you in kindergarten, before even the ABC song, is that it's not a balk.

I saw fans leave to beat traffic. I saw drunken fans stumble into bushes. Sunday, I saw all the people who had not yet left doing the wave in the eighth inning of a close game.

In other words, I saw Cardinals fans acting pretty much like fans in every other city in the United States of America. Now, maybe there was a level of sophistication I just missed. Maybe fewer fans per capita cheered pop-ups.

Maybe I just caught these fans on a bad weekend. The Royals did take two out of three.

Then, that shouldn't matter because Cardinals fans will tell you (over and over and over and over) that they don't consider this Royals-Cardinals thing a rivalry. The Royals don't even show up on the radar screen. My Post-Dispatch colleague Dan O'Neill even wrote a big story in the paper here, along with a huge picture and a chart, all about how this is not a big rivalry at all.

"Quick, name some Royals other than Mike Sweeney... name one!" he wrote. I'm not sure it speaks too well for Cardinals fans' celebrated knowledge if they couldn't at least come up with Carlos Beltran, but I guess the point was that we in Kansas City have a pitifully anonymous team, not worthy of rivalry status.

I guess we're pretty simple out West, because we do consider it a big rivalry. So, maybe these great fans don't care, but we do, and we can note that for the moment, the Royals lead the series, and they have a better record than the Cardinals, not to mention a better stadium and a more recent World Championship.

This weekend, the Cardinals will come to Kansas City. There are two things to remember: One, if you see any Cardinals fans, study them. They're the best, you know. And second, if you have a motorcycle, leave it in the parking lot. Driving on the field is strictly a St. Louis thing.

Even now I can see Lenny and Willies plays in my mind when I attend games as a season ticket holder.

The same passion that the Cardinals had in the 40's is present in the Royal present day fan base. In the late 70's the Cardinals sucked worse than any team but we still had 23K going out to the game. We never left the team. We were one of the worse teams in the baseball but then Whitey ball started and we no longer sucked. Maybe Moore baseball is getting ready to launch for Royals?

The ONLY reason I care more about the Royals series vs. Toronto or some other AL team is the FANS.

If they win, we have to listen to them gloat for the REST OF THE SEASON, even though those wins mean NOTHING and they'll once again finish 5th in their division (applies equally to the Royals and the Sucklones)...

:D

That's interesting.

Obviously Royals fans consider this a rivalry.

I don't know of many Cardinal fans who do.

Chicago is a rivalry. Houston is a rivalry.

The Royals? Meh.
When I was little, I remember my dad had a t-shirt that said:

I root for two teams.
The Cardinals and whoever plays the Cubs.

I think thats the point. The majority doesn't give a chit about St. Louis the city. Its about our beloved teams we grew up with and if you are from Springfield, Mo. that mean the Chiefs.

The same passion that the Cardinals had in the 40's is present in the Royal present day fan base. In the late 70's the Cardinals sucked worse than any team but we still had 23K going out to the game. We never left the team. We were one of the worse teams in the baseball but then Whitey ball started and we no longer sucked. Maybe Moore baseball is getting ready to launch for Royals?

You can be a fan of Chiefs football and Cardinal baseball.
I'm not an animal. Now give me a :grouphug:

BRC. Couldn't have said it better myself. Grew up in WC Ill. listening to
Harry Carey on KMOX. The rivalry was/is with the Cubbies. and now
the Astros.

We never left the Cards. They tried to get good players but had some not so good teams.

Went to several games 1978-81 and set right behind the dug out or lower level on day games during the week.
Still 15-30K folks showing up.

Maybe Moore can turn Royals around. Gotta pry open Glass's wallet.

The fan base may return and get energized about baseball there.

The Cards fans like to act like the Royals don't matter compared to other series. And I don't think it's as big as the Cubs rivalry.

But... this last Royals series was one of the hardest Cards series to get tickets to all year. It sold out as fast as any non-Cubs series, and the tickets were going for higher than normal prices on places like stubhub all season, and nobody was reselling their seats on the Prime Seat Club through the Cards website.

Now obviously the Cards sell out every night and getting tickets is not easy, but I can tell you for a fact this Royals series was really difficult to get tickets to, which is why I ended up having to go see them play against the Reds instead this last week. I wasn't paying 40-50 bucks for an upper deck seat. Pretty rough for a series Cardinal fans apparently don't care about.

Wonder how many folks were in from out of town for pre July 4th stuff.

Maybe the time of year and Weekend series.

Game during the week likely not a problem scoring tickets.

For me, it's not an act. I could really care less how the Cards do against the Royals. In fact, I root for the Royals whenever I can catch a game on the radio.

It's like Chief fans here hating the Rams. I just don't get it. They're in the NFC. It's meaningless, at least it is to me.

It's really a cross state thing. IMO

Much like waiting on metrolink platform after a game a Busch..

Fans on East bound platform (Illinois bound) saying 'West Bound sucks'

Fans on West bound STL County (MO side) saying 'East bound sucks'

Same sh1t.

Yeah, I don't know of any Cardinal fans that think the Royals are a maeniful game. We last played a meaniful game against the Royals 21 years ago. The Cubs are the Cardinals rivals. Houston is working its way up to being a good rival but the Royals? They aren't even on the Cardinals rival map.

Agreed. They aren't in the same division (though the Royals were offered to move to NL Central during realignment). If Royals had moved to NLC division we would have Rivalry. Why they didn't ask Glass.....probably didn't want to teach his pitchers to bat. :p

For a team you could care less about, you seem to love to talk about them all the time.

I wish. We might be in the pennant race if we were in the NL.
