What's the REAL reason the Cubs haven't won the World Series in so long?

Curse? I don't believe it. Even if I WERE to believe it, the original curser allegedly lifted the curse long ago. Plus, the Cubs sucked long before the Billy Goat curse ever happened. And you can't blame Wrigley Field either.

But seriously, what has kept the Cubs from not making it since 1908?? "They suck" is NOT an acceptable response, btw, because that doesn't provide any real explanation; why is it that they make lineup changes, ownership changes, management changes, coaching changes, etc., and they still can't seem to get by. And players who leave the Cubs find great success on other teams...

Really, what does it boil down to??
