Let's see, sticking with this team through Joe Thomas, OJ, Pete McCulley,the recent decade of suck, getting in fights as a kid on the playground because the 49ers were horrible, risking the wrath of Drill Instructors to try to find out the scores of Niner games while in boot camp, being a STH for 20+ years, buying thousands of $$ worth of merchandise with that 'SF' logo on it, anyone with half a brain would concede that's being a true Niner fan...and if there's a 'B' team I like, it does nothing to change that.
Having just one team doesn't make one more a fan than any other.
Especially all of us on this forum. We are on here daily just hoping for a bit of news on our team.
I don't follow any other team like that.
But, when the season starts, I might casually catch a Chiefs game when the 49ers aren't playing.
Whether it be a morning/afternoon game of a bye week.
Or, if the games are at the same time, simply check a score in my iPad during a commercial.
Doesn't diminish my love for my team at all. Helps me to appreciate them more in some ways.
Definitely helps me enjoy the sport a little more.
