The problem with the zone is, we will hype someone up as the next great 49er but the moment they fail, we turn on them as if they just killed a bunch of kittens/puppies.
There is hardly any loyalty here on the zone. We got people on here who want to replace our HC and we are only 6 games in the seaon. Whatever happen to supporting the team? I guess I'm just too loyal because I rarely bash anyone on the 49ers.
You don't have to follow like a blind sheep in order to be "supporting the team." I support this team. I've supported this team for over 20 years now, but these past 6 seasons not many players have given us a reason to be loyal. We've been in rebuild-mode now for quite some time, and we're still sorting out who we want on this team and who we don't. Do you see anyone bad-mouthing Frank Gore? Patrick Willis? You come out and you play hard, as long as you're productive, we'll support you. I'm an extremely loyal person. But don't expect us to follow the team like sheep and root for people who we feel aren't getting the job done. Shaun Hill ring a bell? I'm not going to be loyal to a guy who I think is a back-up QB, when we have someone better making millions with a stronger arm on the bench. Common sense. I'll root for Hill, but if he isn't producing, I'll root for someone else to take his job. Last time I checked, the back-up is also part of the team. Hence, I'm still supporting the team. Again, I want the team to win, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with every decision that's being made.
If you had a manager at work, for example, who was making horrible decisions and potentially destroying your career, would you be "loyal" to that person, when you know there's someone out there that could do a better job, help save the company, and potentially save your job? Or would you just put all your faith into that person, because you're on his team?
