    I dont get this super Harbaugh hate. People are always saying he is an overated bag. His teams are good. Real good.
    Its nice to have a new nemesis in the division. The winning Rams teams were good to finally take the division from.
    This article linked above I found when looking at a diff post. This is taking the reaction to the 12/23 game a bit far.

  • Harbaugh is a delta bravo. Yes, his teams win games but he's classless and has minimal sportsmanship.

    Exactly. How can you not hate this dickweed? I have to go to my mother in laws or I'd take the time to tell you all the reasons. But you do know he is the douchebag head coach of the team we hate?

  • I'm all for us being classy, taking the high road and all of that, but I'm confused as to the relationship between your subject title and the article you link. How is this article is any reflection of us here at .Net? (Your title implies that WE have done something less than classy.) Perhaps you meant to address Lowell Cohn with your subject title?

  • Harbaugh walked into a team that had been cellar dwellers for a decade, drafting in the top 5 for years. It's not like he had to "rebuild" much. The talent was there. He's won a few games with that crew, now let's see how he deals with some real adversity.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • Imagine you are the guy who wrote this article. Every press conference with Harbaugh is like going to the dentist, and you know that Harbaugh actually hates and resents your very existence. When he is down, you get your kicks in.

    Really, watch his pressers. He is the consumate asshole. And when times get tough, and they will (primarily because like Holmgren, he over plays his veteran guys and doesn't let his depth players get on field experience until he has to) the press is going to turn on him like wild dogs. Like this.

  • Ahhh. "Sportsmanship" is a good place to start. Where is the "bright line" here though? I thought Harbaugh honking at the team bus
    when the 9ers beat us at their house was funny and sportsmanlike. Sherman wrapping his birthday gift for Harbaugh before a
    national audience was sportmanship.

    From all the posts I am reading I am seeing everything Harbaugh does is an unsportsman like no talent hack douchebag move.

    To Edit: I am saying we should demonstrate the class we are capable of. Yes Harbaugh is terrible with the media. Its because of his ego.
    Think of it this way: at least he is real and interesting; minus cliches. What makes us different than 49er fans?

  • Digits fan believe they are justified in hating Carroll, too. I don't care. Let them hate. Personally, I don't get the whole continual hate thing (except for the rustbuckets -- I totally get that).
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

    Why not???, the 49rs have beaten the Seahawks three out of the last four meetings, and their fans, and some of the Media pundits even NOW, refuse to give kudo's to Pete, Wilson or the whole Seahawks organization for giving their all and returning the favor.
    I do NOT want to stoop to the level of most of the 49rs fandom, but because this kind disrespect is ongoing, I'm not just going to roll over and let them run off at the mouth without an answer either.
    The 49rs are a damn good team, BUT,their fans and some of the media pundits are trying to reseurect the Joe Montana, Steve Young era with Kaepernick at the helm, Kaepernick is no Joe Montana, and Harbaugh is no Walsh
    That respect thing?, that's a two way street

  • I can't stand Harbaugh, and people have asked me why.

    I disliked him at Stanford, but admittedly only because of the Carroll feud. I like Carroll, but again in the interests of full disclosure, only after he joined the Hawks.

    I disliked him more after he became coach of SF. I dislike SF, and I know more ahole fans of SF than any other team.

    I disliked him more after the handshake.

    I disliked him more after they went 13-3 and every Niner Fan acted like they had just won the last 20 Super Bowls straight. And now I had seen many times what an arrogant, immature jerk he acted like on the sidelines.

    I disliked him more after I saw a few press conferences. Again, arrogance is the word I would use.

    I disliked him more after I read the Sherman account of how he was treated at Stanford. Baldwin, who seems like a classy guy, hating him also gave me an insight. NFL players see College Teammates/Coaches all the time. The fact they loathe him speaks volumes to me.

    I disliked him more after his flat out BS about not pursuing Manning. A pattern had started to emerge of a man who believes his own lies. Pure ego.

    And does anyone believe he dodn't mock the Seahawks in SF earlier this year? Hard to take anything he says at face value.

    So I don't hate Harbaugh because he is the coach of a good division rivals as most SF Fans would dismiss it as. I believe within a year STL will be right in there with SEA and SF. But Fisher is a man I respect. The lack of respect towards Harbaugh has all been brought on by Harbaugh the man.

  • I can respect him as a coach, but I can't remember a coach I had as much venom for. It was pretty obvious hearing one of the 49er beat reporters interviewing on either KIRO or KJR this week what she thought when posed the question of what Harbaugh is like to deal with from week to week. Paraphrasing, she took a long telling pause and said, "He's...interesting to deal with." Realizing she was sort of throwing him under the bus, she backtracked to the tune of, "Once in a while he loosens up and he can be enjoyable." He comes off as a huge douchebag during games and during press conferences.

    I follow IU hoops, and the only negative of the Niners getting eliminated is that Harbaugh starts turning up at some Indiana basketball games since his sister is married to Tom Crean. It always leaves me shaking my head and going "Screw you, I don't want to root for the same team as you."

    Pretty simple really, just read some of the crap on the other post that was presented here for all to peruse.
    I think it's funny that the 9r's fans are pissed off at Wilson for being the gridiron ghost, but when they start talking shit like wishing the whole Seahawks team die in a plane crash, or that they want some 9r defender break the legs on Wilson, EVEN IF it takes a late hit to get it done, that's not funny, and that's how the Seahawks fans are different.

    Yes. All of that.

    My dislike for him goes back to the days when I was a young Packer fan. If there was a bigger crybaby ever to play the position of QB, I don't recall who that was. He was the Danny Ainge of the NFL. Worse, considering the Bears, even pre-85, always had reputations as being tough and physical players (think Butkus), Harbaughs constant whining on (and off) the field had him hated by Bear fans as well. He was a boob and now, like some evil scientist with an undeserved ego, he is exacting his revenge.

    Well, like the saying goes; be careful who you anger on the way up, because you're gonna' see them again on the way back down (down, down, down). Please keep bashing this clown, but do know that he's heard it all before.

  • Plus, the comments I read from 49ers fans during and after their assbeating was shocking to me. I know we ALL say some stupid things in the heat of the moment, but as a fanbase IN GENERAL, it's HIGHLY rare to hear Seahawks fans say they want the other team's coach to suffer a heart attack and die, and other ridiculous comments. It's a GAME douchebags. It's fun to smack talk all day long but be a human being about it, not an animal.

    Most these fans sounded like animals and it was disgusting.
