It's funny how people b*tch and moan about how our crowd is too soft, but then when something like this happens they b*tch and moan about not having class. You get one or the other. The whole "our fans have class" crap is bogus. Every team has rowdy fans that will cause fights now and then. That's the way it is with ANY GATHERING, not just sporting events. If there's 50,000+ people at an event, only an ignorant fool would expect everyone there to be "classy." The fact of the matter is the loud-mouth, rowdy fans that are susceptible to fighting are the same type of fans that cause other stadiums to make ours seem like it's full of deaf and mute people. Our crowds SUCK, but not because there are a few rowdy people, it's because of all the whiny ass fans that complain about EVERYTHING. As long as the fight has nothing to do with me, I really don't give a damn. You people should stop worrying about the stupid whine and cheese image our crowds have maintained because trust me, NOBODY ELSE GIVES A SH*T ABOUT THE CLASSINESS OF THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS FANS. NOBODY!

I've been to sporting events for all sports all around the country. you are wrong. I understand your statement about our wine and cheese fandom, but come on. THIS IS THE BAY AREA. I noticed that fans kinda take on a persona of their city (I.E. GB=cheeseheads). but that has really nothing o do with being passionate fans or loud supportive fans. you know that whole 12th man s**t in Seattle? loud rowdy fans right? well, they fans are some if the nicest people I have met, and I have been to many games up there-in niner gear. anyway, sporting events should really be about supporting your team, not bashing the opponents fans.

Well said Digger.

Come on, people! Fights in the stands are not the way we handle fans of the opposing team!

We wait until they aren't looking and chuck some Duracell's at them.
Wow, I remember that hearing that chanting, and I was like all right!!! Some spirit.

Lol, next time, I'd like to hear some chanting WITHOUT a fight being the cause.

This fighting in the stands is stupid childish crap.......make it MANO E MANO and take it away from other seated fans who have paid to see a game ...... not two clowns pumped up with testosterone...... and please literally kill eachother so that the rest of us can enjoy the game.

It's just being caught up in the moment with a couple of beers in you. You get mouthy and go all in, you feel obligated to redeem yourself. The best bet is just to say screw it and tell them f*** you and sit back down. If they get in your face, an usher/security guard is usally right there to calm things down. I've almost been in two scufles in the stands before; once with a cowboy fan at a Titans game at our stadium and once with some Raider fan at a Rams game at our stadium????????? but it never really got serious...just a little s**t talking. Moreover, about 15 9er fans stood up immediately and silenced the two a-holes.
there is always fights at football games... preseason games can even be a little roudier at times...
