    Would you ask me why the Red Sox Nation still harbor bitterness towards Bill Buckner? Your team won two championships in the last four years, but the anger towards Buckner continues. Why? What did Buckner did to you? So Buckner could not catch the ball. Have any of you realize the guy was playing with pain back then? Let's see you guys do that.

    Buckner was not the reason why your team lost to the Mets in the 86 World Series. It was Mike Stanley and Calvin Schilardi who screwed up not Buckner.

    It's amazing how Stanley and Schilardi gets lack of blame, but it's all Buckner's fault. I don't blame him for never stepping foot in New England. I don't blame him for even attending a Sox reunion. It's amazing that he got booed when the Sox mentioned him last year to commerate a 10-year reunion.

    Why don't you guys let it go and try to treat Buckner like a human being?

    This is another black eye for one of the worst behaved fanbases in America.

    I was not at the game in Week 1.

    I am not a Jets fan.

    Jets fans were cheering because they wanted to see Kellen Clemens. It was not a diss at Pennington. They did not cheer for him to get hurt. Jets fans respect Pennington's body of work to pull a stunt like that. This was a bad misintepretation from the media.

    Its unfortunate 'cause I agree Buckner's error has taken more blame than it deserves and puts an awful spin on an honorable and long career ; but he had an equal chance at being remembered the same way Bucky Dent is remembered in NY and the way Dave Roberts will always be remembered here in Boston. Its the risk you take playing pro sports.

    Only in Boston does athletes get vilified more often than not. It's just a game. You guys over there call yourself a great sports town, but in my mind, you folks are beyond psychotic to go treat someone like garbage never mind it's been 21 years now and you guys can't forgive Buckner. You guys still hate him. This quote by you says it all. Instead of insulting my intelligence about how it's unfortunate and then come up with this stuff about how it's just pro sports say awful lost about Boston sports fans. It wasn't Buckner's fault for the last time. The guy was playing with bad knees. What part of it don't you understand? I am still wondering why Bob Stanley and Calvin Schilardi has not been called out.

    Like I said, New York sports fans don't go on long harbor hatred, which is why I am proud to be a New Yorker.

    Lol who the #@$@ is this new york retard, yeah what about you and every Yankee fan that just ran the best player the Yankees had out of town.Yeah yeah he sucks in the post season along with every other turd on the Yankee roster but without a-rod those frauds would not have even made the playoffs, so take your new york hypocritical bs pride and shove it straight up your a@@!

    Real sox fans know who to blame and that's the manager for trying to give Buckner the spot of helping end the series instead of replacing him for someone capable to play good defence at that position. Instead he elected to stick with Buckner and the rest is history, that you worthless bandwagon new york fans need to keep bringing up to try and make this almost decade long draught of not winning s##t make you feel better.

    Karma is a mother #@$@er which is why every team in new york sucks at this point and time, so enjoy being second fiddle to Boston sports for years to come, hell we even whooped your ass in soccer :D !

    Jets fans were cheering for the arrival of Kellen Clemens. It was not a knock on Pennington at all. Jets fans respect his ability to play the game. They were trying to support Clemens. It was misinteprted about how they were happy to see Pennington go down.

    Yankees fans hate A-Rod because he comes off very disingenous and he does not sound like a guy who play for the love of the game. He is more for himself and he does it for money. That won't fly well in the Northeast.

    As for Buckner, how come Bill Buckner is still bitter at Boston fans and how come he never came to the Sox reunion.

    Where did this come from? Who is still mad at Buckner? Because a Yankees fan says it is so?

    And guys, the proper response to a Yankees fan is "were you one of the Yankees fans at Yankee Stadium booing Derek Jeter?"

    Buckner's off the hook as far as I'm concerned, and he took way too much blame for that.

    I wish every Red Sox fan would share your opinion.

    Sadly, all Sox fans still have it in for Buckner never mind they won two championships in four years.

    No one is blaming Buckner. Because an assinene NJ fan said so? Heck, Buckner is even in a comedy movie in which he plays first base. Most fans acknowledge that he wasn't the reason the Sox lost the series. More of a knee jerk reaction and the media looking for a story. This story was over a long time ago, but some sobbing NY Yankee fan saw that the Sox won another World Series and wanted some attention. So here it is: YANKEES SUCK.

    Then how come Buckner has yet to arrive at Fenway Park for a reunion with the 86 team? How come Buckner has taken shots at Sox fans when he had the opportunity? How come he got death threats and how come his kids got harassed at school so often back then?

    He has been forgiven for a long time and has been invited back to Fenway many times. The fans were angry after the incident but it was the media that kept this issue alive. He would be welcomed back with open arms by most of the fans in Boston. GFY
