Where did your hate of 49er fans originate?

Discuss any and all sports-related topics. From the College Sports to Baseball and everything in between. RATING: PG-13
  • Old NFC West days.

    Vic becoming SF's DC.

    2011 Divisional play-off game. Not the actual game itself, but how poorly and downright disrespectful our fans were treated in that cesspool you call Candlestick.

    Niner fans trying to compare the current LB's to the Dome Patrol. Not even close buddy.

    Where did my hate for 49ers originate? I'm not sure, possibly in a petri dish, but let me look around a bit and if I find out, I'll get back to you.

    Seatown81 had a nice run-in with the horde. He, Tech, BFS, Lymon, MysterMatt, PE, Hemifed, Riley12, L80 and others went down for the game (I was supposed to go but a new job at the last minute changed my plans).

    A whole bunch of us were there. Seatown, Myself, Hemifed, Yakimahawk, BFS, Lymon, Myster Matt, Riley 12, Dom, Nsport, King Grumpy, Pliny, Rockhawk, Pehawk. People in the stands were complete and utter douches of the highesst order, but in the lot tailgating all was totally cool.

    What sticks with me was the game and treatment there. I expect to hear some shit, but not having food thrown on you.

    Well that is unfortunate that you had that experience. Pretty sure that those type of fans are on every team though.

  • I had a group of friends from all over the West Coast who started going to the Hawks-Niners games in SF every year once we joined the NFC West. The treatment they got from 49er fans (and the complete indifference from stadium security) got worse and worse every year until they finally stopped going.

    Yes, every fan base has its share of @$$holes, but yours has been getting steadily worse for years.

    Have you and your friends attended other away games as well, not just at Candlestick to compare to?

    I personally haven't been to a road game since Indy in 2009--fans there were great. Arizona fans were never much of a problem; their heads got pretty big for a year or two after their Super Bowl run but those were just harmless idiots. Places like Miami and San Diego have always been laid back. Cleveland and Cincy were horrible and I doubt they've gotten any better since then.

    And as far as comparisons go, a trip to Candlestick in '02 and '03 was a lot more fun for everybody than going there five or six years later so yeah, like I said, your fanbase has gotten worse over the years. I'm hoping when you guys get your new stadium the higher prices will weed out some of the drunken riffraff.

  • I posted this in another thread with a similar topic......

    Look, I grew up with nothing but Niner fans around me...this has nothing to do with the internet or message boards. To me this forum is just a new way for them to spew their vile rhetoric. A new way for them to pass on the their bigoted arrogance on to their spawn. You had to have lived it, it didn't matter if it was football season or not. It was a year round thing, constant and unending. What I had to endure would be considered illegal now, simply because I was a fan of another team. I want nothing more than the absolute worst for that organization and their fan base.

    On 49ers.com a Niner fan that lives there in Seattle posted that whenever he goes to C-Link for our annual matchup he is treated to the type of treatment that you are talking about. Said that your fans even also make comments about his wife and kids who are right next to him.

    So it seems that Niner fans have the same reasons for hating Seahawk fans.

  • I'll admit, I don't hate the Niners, though they are probably my least favorite NFC West team. If the Cardinals or Rams were in the Super Bowl, I'd probably root for them. Not the Niners though.

    But that's about as far as it goes. I hate the Broncos, Raiders, and Chiefs much more than I'll ever hate the Niners. I just can't get myself to care about the new division the way I cared about the AFC West. The divisional games are just like any other games to be nowadays.

  • The worst I've seen at the Clink is a drunk Seahawks fan put his finger in a Niners fans face. Besides that, everything I've seen have been tame. For some reason, Bay Area fans, even in Seattle like to be obnoxious and taunt the homecrowd. To be fair though, the worst crowd I've seen has been Raiders fans this past season. And that was a damn preseason game. I've actually shook hands and hugged it out with Niners fans after the game. So there's that.

  • "I am curious as to where all of your hate for us originated" Hate is a little girl trying to create drama word, so lets use dislike.
    Where did the dislike of fan/49er originate?

    Fan - Internet action

    "But it seriously seems like a lot of hypocrisy is going on here."
    -It is a fact that you have heard the statement "If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all". Now with that great advise tucked away and others you the FAN went with the attack the poster strategy. So as a side liner member looking at fans of the 49ers you cats look like rule breaking, poster attacking trolls. My disliking originated in this thread. Thanks troll.

    "This is easy, your fans were nowhere to be found 2 years ago. Now your fans troll this board and repeatedly tell us how great your franchise is and how bad ours is. Get into any real discussion and they pull out the 5 rings like that matters today. Pretty much everything Seatown said. 49er and foreskin fans are the worst bunch at this, imo, by far."
    -Sums it up for me. Bandwagonville is san fran. I feel they are the most finicky fan base

    49ers - On the field

    "2 - Sharpie incident"
    -That was enough to dislike a team.

    "Well, one huge difference is that Seahawks fans aren't known for often stabbing opposing teams' fans"
    -Deadly funny!

    The Checkmate photo post above is not only hilarious it also exposes your rebuttal flaws - you are not hard hitting like your DBs

    It is not possible that our list of reasons for disliking are the same, you have no clue how long our full list is.

    This is one of the better "woe is me" "why do they hate me" sob threads I have seen in a while.

    Um, no. First off, even you admit that it's annoying for fans to constantly spout off about their history of championships. Seahawks fans don't do that for obvious reasons.

    Second, you found one guy on a message board who says that he gets hassled at Seahawk games. Several people here have spoken up about being hassled at Niner games, and when you throw in the Saints fan that's people from more than one fanbase chiming in about what a pain in the ass it is to go to Candlestick as a visiting fan.

    Third, others on this thread have talked about the general level of douchebaggery amongst Niner fans they have had to deal with and live with. You never responded to Blitzfan's post about what it was like for him or presented evidence that is is just as difficult living as a Niner fan amongst Seahawks fans.

    So no, we don't have the same reasons. Niner fans constantly throw their past championships in other people's faces, Niner fans are more likely to hassle opposing fans at a game, and Niner fans are more likely to be a pain in the @$$ in general. Not all of them, certainly, but you are more likely to find a idiot wearing a red jersey than a blue one.

  • When I was a kid, I when through a pretty strong phase of Bengals fandom. I liked the new tiger stripe helmets and they had players named "Boomer" and "Icky" (Again, I was a kid).

    TWO Superbowls of child angst. The come-from-behind one still leaves residual Niner hate in my mouth... what was that, like, 1985?

    HELL NO.

    As Doc pointed out, I was the one who almost got in a fight at Candledump. I had a good deal to drink, so didn't realize how far I ventured above our seats when I went up to tell a dude to stop throwing crap at us. Guy gets right up in my face and spits in it point blank. The rest of our group was too far away to do anything besides yell at me to come back and sit down. I had to use every ounce of restraint in my body to not deck the guy. But thankfully did, as if I had, I'd have been jumped by everyone around me. That was inside the stadium. Outside the stadium myself and 3 friends had beers poured on our heads while walking to the stadium and not saying a word.

    You asked another poster if he'd attended away games in other cities. I have. I have been to 11 different stadiums. San Francisco is the BY FAR the worst experience and worst fans I've EVER encountered. Any SF fan complaining about Seattle is just being an overly sensitive bitch. I've had season tickets since the Kingdome. Our fans talk a lot of crap. And you'll have a fight every once in a while (just like any stadium). But you do not even get to for a second right off SF fans as one in the same with Seattle. Our stadium has a "Keep it PG rated" behavior enforcement and throws out unruly home fans at the drop of a hat. At your dump, after getting food thrown at me for half a game and spit in the face, I tried talking to an usher and was told, "What am I supposed to do about it?" Your bad fans are Raider fans painted red. It's as simple as that. As pinksheets has said a couple times now. You guys have made a rep of stabbing people. A Seattle fan was stabbed that same day. SF is the only stadium I've visted out of 11 cities where I won't go back.

    MAYBE, just maybe, I'd consider once they move out to the suburbs. Getting away from that crap part of town, and hopefully pricing out your gang banger fans. But even then, I'd be very hesitant.

  • Please note, he still has nothing to say about my post. He doesn't even have the presence of mind to have compassion for another human being. He doesn't even show the slightest embarrassment for entity that he represents here, for what his brothers and sisters have done to another human being. Douchebaggery (as Shadowhawk so eloquently put it) abounds in that organization, from the top down.

  • Sadly, it has originated here on .net. I grew up a 49ers fan, living in the Sacramento area for much of my life, until I moved to the Puget Sound area in 1998. I still enjoyed rooting for both teams. Once the realignment took place, then of course, everything changed. But the truth is, I still can root for the 49ers as a TEAM, but I now have a difficult time rooting for some of the players on the team. I find Kaepernick very difficult to like. Vernon Davis too. I very much dislike Alton Smith. Anyway, I really have felt the pressure here to conform to being a 49er hater, but I'll continue to push back on that, since most of my family and many California friends still root for the 49ers.

    Can you please explain how I am being "passive aggressive"?

    What it seems to me is that you guys assume the worst in what us Niner fans post and interpret pretty much everything we write as negatively as you can. Not on purpose, but because some of you have a blind hatred.

  • That is a super easy question to answer.

    Back in the mid 80's, the Seahawks were still in the AFC West, but I lived on the central coast of CA. You couldn't
    throw a rock without hitting a Niner fan. They were as smug and entitled, even back then during the dawn of the
    Bill Walsh era, as the worst NFC East fans. They thought that any discussion of west coast football started and ended
    with their team. No one else mattered.

    I started watching football with Raiders fans in those days because my hatred of Niner fans outweighed my hatred of
    the Raiders - yes, even Bo Jackson, Jim Plunkett and Tom Flores - and they would at least talk about other teams.

    I can understand that. However the 80's did pretty much belong to the Niners (SB's= 1981, 1984, 1988, 1989...then 1994. Division Champs= 1981, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989). So it is easy to understand the pride that a fan base would feel during a period such as that.

    And apparently still do, as they mention it EVERY time they talk.

    Yup. And the true reason Ninerlifer is on Seahawks boards surfaces.

    You started this thread with a faulty question ... and (arrogantly) on a Seahawks board. Which also is the answer you need to hear if there's any hope for you whatsoever. I'll preface what I'm going to say by clarifying that this isn't life... it's a game. In terms of the topic being discussion about football... I could like you fine outside of all that (if I knew you in person.) It's possible because some of my best friends are Steelers fans, NYG fans, etc, etc, etc. Still, when it comes to football... I'm a Seahawks fan. The other teams are just necessary evils.

    (Now with that disclaimer out of the way) Perhaps the question you should ask yourself (and please do not share with us) is... why are you not a Seahawks fan? I have NO interest hearing about the 49ers (especially in a SEAHAWKS fan forum... unless it is of the 42-13 nature (the actual games.) After that clear statement, I'm sure "they" (not you) are working at trying to figure out how they're going to compete with the Seahawks this next season. Know your enemy, sure. But, fans are not tasked with figuring out how to convince 49er fans of anything. There's infinitely more important matters. You come in here like you're doing us a favor. What do you expect to accomplish by asking such a question? Get over yourself. None of us are dependent upon you to know what we need to know about the 49ers team. We stomach as much as we can to make thrashing them all the more enjoyable to watch.

    I can think of only one way a rival fan could exist on this or any other teams' board: go with compliments about the other team and let the fans of that board be the ones to say anything about your team. When you're too busy building your own case, you have no need to hear any potential compliment from any of us, right? You're already doing the job and you come across no different than all the other smug 49er fans that I'm certain we've all come across for years. Your question (no matter what you say is your reasoning) rings of you trying to "one up" Seahawks fans as if "we" are the problem on our own board. Too, some of the things you say in this thread about Seahawks fans and other NFC West fans are passively insulting. They're not quite even back-handed compliments.

    Again, no offense personally. But, you're barking up the wrong tree with your approach. If that's not helpful information... I can't help you and perhaps you should just go reside elsewhere. I don't come onto Seahawks boards looking for 49er fans to hear what they have to say. Sorry if that bursts your bubble. But, maybe it's constructive enough to see you approach how you post in here. I was hesitant to even bite and give an answer... but, after reading through some of the choice answers for some AM entertainment, thought I would chime in. Otherwise, when I see your avatar... I pretty much look to ignore what comments you might have. I've heard it all for years.

  • @NinerLifer
    I thought of another way to put it which might also appease your question to some degree. When hate for other teams began isn't even the question either. The game for fans becomes more enjoyable and satisfying rooting for your team when there are other teams you love to hate. Divisional opponents fit that because of playing them each twice a year. I haven't always hated the Cardinals, 49ers and Rams. But, it became obligatory after all the realignment. I probably hate the Cardinals the least of all the other teams (as I remember rooting for them against teams like the Cowboys when they had Jim Hart, Roy Green... that era. The St. Louis Cardinals.) The only time I remember having any like for the 49ers was when I felt sorry for them (Steve DeBerg years, etc.) I was pleased when they beat the Cowboys to get to SB 16, but was more rooting for Ken Anderson and the Bengals in that one. I always liked the uniforms of the Rams of the 70's with the yellow. Vince Ferragamo era was pretty cool. As a kid, I loved the NFL, so could appreciate things about some of the other teams perhaps more so then.

  • I appreciate your reply "Team of the century". After reading your post I can see now why how some of my own posts are perhaps coming off negative when that isnt my intention. I will try to tailor my replies to a less invasive approach in an attempt to actually accomplish why I came here in the first place.

    As stated when I first showed up, I find that there is no better way to find out information regarding a team than from the fans of that team on an Internet MB. As fans, whenever we come across something on the internet or any other news source regarding our team we like to post about it to share what we learned with our fellow board members in order to spark conversation and find out what others think about it whatever it may be. Easier than Google in my opinion.

    As my goal here is to keep up to date with what the Seahawks are doing, as I do with the other teams in our division, I will try harder to not come off as this "passive aggressive" person that I keep getting labeled.

    So I thank you for your informative reply.

    Your mission is accomplished. You've annoyed all of us.

    Wow. You really don't get it. Or you're just that big of a douche.

  • I can't stand them because 95% of them are fairweather douchebags. You couldn't find a 49er fan after the team was in rebuilding mode.. now they're everywhere.. reliving the great 80's when most of them were not even alive or like 4 years old when the 49ers were prominent.

    I used to think Cowboys fans were the worst, but the Niners took that baton and ran away from the pack with Usain Bolt speed.

    You watch, when the Niners have a let down year.. most of their fan base will disappear like roaches when a light switch is flicked on.
