Texas Rangers owner Greenberg says Yankee fans were 'awful'

11/1, NY Post: "Don’t expect to see Chuck Greenberg joining the Yankee Stadium bleacher creatures any time soon.
  • Greenberg, the Rangers CEO and part-owner, ripped Yankees fans for their actions during the ALCS.

I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful,” Greenberg said on ESPN Radio in Dallas. “They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I've seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment."

  • Greenberg’s response came when he was asked about how the Rangers fans have been throughout the playoffs.

"I think our fans have been great. I think particularly in Game 3 of the World Series they just blew away anything I've seen in any venue during the postseason,” Greenberg, who led a group that purchased the Rangers in early August, said before ranting against the Yankees faithful.

  • Last week, Cliff Lee’s wife, Kristen, complained about taunting, cursing, spitting, and having beer thrown in her direction while sitting in the family section at Yankee Stadium.

"The fans did not do good things in my heart," Kristen told USA Today. "When people are staring at you, and saying horrible things, it's hard not to take it personal."

Cliff Lee said that would not affect his free-agency decision, which is expected to come between the Rangers and Yankees."
