Acoustics dont make you a winner. The 49ers are 16-3-1 at home under Jim Harbaugh. Our home field advantage is being really good.
1. I have probably been a 49er fan longer you've been alive.
2. What does being a fan have to do with liking/hating the stadium.
3. The stadium is unimpressive in comparison to the stadiums other teams are getting.
4. I am not the only one with this opinion (3).
5. Again, nothing about winning, or liking the team...the stadium still sucks.
Is critical thinking inversely proportional to homerism? Right now Candlestick Park is probably the worst NFL stadium in America...that doesn't affect winning though, because the Niners have huge winning legacy they established there, and many including myself love the Stick, not for what it is physically now, but for the legacy it symbolizes.
So criticizing the shortcomings of the stadium isn't a knock on the team, and it doesn't make me a "bad fan". It just makes me someone who has a different opinion than a blind clueless homer like you.
No, but it doesn't mean we are blind homers for actually liking the stadium design either.
Call me crazy, but I like stadiums that, you know, look like stadiums. They don't need to look like something that crashlanded in Roswell New Mexico (Arizona), a giant sphincter (Atlanta), or some crappy piece of modern art (Minn). Stadiums that look like stadiums don't go out of style.
I also really don't give 2 sh*ts what the damn thing looks like from the outside for froma blimp. What matters to me is the in-game experience. The design of the stadium is to be a open as physically possible. Unfortunately, that isn't something you can ever experience until you are actually IN the stadium.
Also....I don't need the fan noise.
Yes, its a nice homefield advantage...but teams that have that advantage tend to suck on the road and never win anything. Some of the loudest stadiums in the NFL...Seattle, New Orleans, Atlanta, Minn....a combined ONE SB championship.
