As for as the Cardinals' fans...I don't care what sport you're talking about, claims of "we have the best fans in all of the sport" always rub me the wrong way, and that has been a frequent claim by Cards fans over the years. It similarly used to tick me off to hear the Cowboys fans claim the Cowboys "are America's team."
Good rivalries comes from competing for the playoffs, and certainly the rivalry between the Reds and Cards had heated up only over the past few years. Let the teams settle it on the field.
Leave the postulations about having "the best fans in the sport" out of it.
That annoys me as well, being a Cards fan. I said it here before (I wish I could dig up the thread) that the Cardinals fans cannot consider themselves the best fans in baseball since Jack Buck died. He set the class and tone of Cardinals nation and we have been missing that. As much as I pride myself in saying Cardinals fans gave the Red Sox a standing ovation when they swept us in the WS in 2004, I'm not sure today's fan base would do the same thing in 2013. You will never see me type out here that we have the best fans in baseball.
