Cubs fans banned at Busch Stadium wearing "Try Not to Suck" t-shirts


by - Senior Editor -

Cubs fans have been denied access to Wednesday's game at Busch Stadium that wore the "Try Not to Suck" charity T-shirts.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the following comments to the media on Wednesday about the controversy.

"It’s much better if the fans make a big deal out of it," Maddon said. “Let someone blow your horn, and the sound travels twice as far.”

"The message to the ushers is, Why do you think it's dirty?," Maddon said. "I'd love to know the definition of why they’re offensive in any shape or form."

Maddon went to say that the ushers have a dirty mind if they think the shirts are not in good taste.

"Whoever thinks they’re offensive has a dirty mind. The fans are responding. That’s the best way to indicate how (wrong) it is."

“It’s got to be an edict among the powers to be,” Maddon said. “I think it’s interesting and speaks to the politics of the area a bit.”

The t-shirts are part of Maddon's Respect 90 foundation, and t-shirt sale proceeds go directly to charity.
