Your team was founded in 1946, ours was founded in 1976. We were still in the early expansion years when you got your first SB, having had three decades to build a competitive team. And look now...we've got the inside track to win one in about the same time frame (the officiated-abortion that was XL not withstanding.) The NFL has more parity than any other pro sport, that's what makes it so difficult to win a championship even with a great team.
I used to be a 49ers fan (my NFC team of choice) back in the Montana and Young days. After Young retired, the whole franchise became as deplorable as its current fan base and I seceded from the NFC altogether. I never blubbered about dusty old trophies after 1995 because they don't mean squat; they were won by different players and coaches when the team had different GM's and owners. The only thing that matters is the present. Even if Seattle wins 10 in a row, you'll never hear me touting that tired old argument about The Glory Days. I bet I could name more players from those rosters than most 49er 'fans' these days.
Just thought it was funny that SF got their panties in a bunch about us flying a little plane over their park. They're as vehement as when they found out about our brick at the new yard, threatening to deface it. I don't know when the fan base got so insufferably bad, but it was never like this when I followed the team.
