So let's say you got DeSean Jackson on your fantasy team and he catches an 80 yard TD against us, you'd be happy, right? I'm sorry, but I personally just can't consider that line of thinking/mindset as representing legitimate "fanhood." I don't even care if you hope the Niners win- something that decreases those chances would cause happiness...in my mind that's casual fanhood at best.
way to take it too seriously...
If i have a player facing SF, like Witten last week, I hope for a Niners win and a big day for Witten. in the end all that matters is wins. The way i see it, its a benefit. Someone who had Miles Austin last week probably took the loss a little better than everyone else. If someone has to kill the Niners, it might as well be your guy.
it can be a weird feeling to not be super pissed when someone on the opposing team scores, but you get used to it. I remember years ago I had Keenan McCardell back when he was on the Bucs, and in a game against the Niners, he caught a 90+ yard TD pass, but we still beat them pretty soundly. it was win/win.
