49ers Fans - Atrocious
So I have had a night to sleep off the upset. Going from England to San Fran to watch a heartbreak defeat does take its toll but we'll dust ourselves down, get on with it and we will come back stronger.

It's fair to say that my impression of 49ers fans was low before I even got here. Their conduct, language and general rubbish they chat on forums was by far the most immature and generally pathetic I had witnessed of any fans. I did however try to come here with an open mind.

Now bear in mind I have grown up with English football (soccer) notorious for its violence, conduct and generally being more like a warzone than a sporting event.

During the game, I expected abuse and got it in plentiful abundance. Name calling, personally offensive slurs against things like me wearing glasses (yes seriously!) but that was of little consequence. The thing that stood out for me here was more the whining (is that where they got their name from?) on every penalty call or ball spot. Literally every call that didn't favour them, they were at the referees with all manner of language and claiming the NFL was fixing the game.

If that wasn't bad enough, this really stood out for me. How quickly they all got on the backs of their own players after they did something wrong. I don't know who it was but he drpped several passes and he was getting destroyed. Even their defence was getting hounded when they let Brees make a completion. Absolutely pathetic!

So we lose, and then I'm outside the ground. As expected, all manner of abuse about 'F**king off home'. But what stood out here was fans body checking women to try and provoke them! That is unbelievable. It's pathetic against men but against women! Do me a favour! And the coup de gras...

One guy jumped in front of a kid (no older than 10) with his Dad and directed 'Who Dat now b*tch?' straight in his face. Absolutely disgusting.

No class in winning. No class with opposing fans. No ability to back their own team. Worst set of fans I have ever witnessed in pro sports. Any sport. I can only pray that this pathetic bunch of individuals do not end up with a Superbowl winning team.

End Rant.

They are a reflection of their team. I actually kind of liked the Niners before this game; you know, young upstarts, firey coach, all that.

Their conduct yesterday, though, was so classless it was absurd.

They are all hippies and all on drugs, i'd expect it from them. Dont worry we'll get a new D and show them up next time, their victory will be short lived

I may look at this through 'black and gold' tinted glasses but the conduct of our Saints with the Lions fans after the win in The Dome was superb. I had a great chat with one guy about Jimmy Graham and also about how the Lions are much improved. Very humble, lots of handshakes, very classy from both sets of fans. Nothing doing in San Fran. Horrible.

Hippies don't act like that.

I had a great experience in San Fran when I attended a game there back in 99 or 2000...forget when it was, to many coronas ago

They were just hating because you were a straight guy. ;-)

Detroit and New Orleans are the same type of people just differnet cultures. Both Blue Collar cities. Workin' Folks, if you will. Both cities gone through, going through and recovering cities.

San Fran and NOLA have only these things in common:

1. Both are States in the United States of America
2. Uh,..... I guess both have a "Rainbow District". Just San Fran lets it cover most the city.
3. I guess thats about it.

Sorry you had a bad time out there brother. But I know the team thanks you for representing the B&G on hostile ground.

Here is the problem; Bandwagon Raider fans jumped their sinking ship and hopped on the 49ers. I'm telling you right now, there is no way the 49ers have that many puke fans. They just adopted the puke fans of the Raiders who are known to be some of the most disgusting fans on the planet.

Oh yes they do too have that many puke fans. The bay area is chock full of thuggery. The mindset out here is just too damn liberal to do anything about it. Oakland is bad, but they have a devoted fan base that is there win or lose. SF is the epitome of Bandwagon. I'd say the SF fan base is probably worse than Atlanta's.
