thanks for the great games and superbowls Joe
True. But I think the point of the thread was the poster wishes that Joe did more -- and was a little more public-oriented.
I think that's a wish we all have. But --you're right. He doesn't need to be here. He earned the love and adoration eons ago.
I noticed he found time to make a little cash by doing a super bowl commercial the other day.
Anyway its not so much that I want to see him do more and be more public oriented....and if he has beef against the organization then thats fine as well. As a fan, I would like to see him publicly show respect at the biggest moments for the guys that I feel made him. In the last 15 years approximately, there are only 3 times that I wish I would have seen him
The day they retired Jerrys #80. I overpaid for tickets on the niners sideline as well as hotel and food for the weekend, and drove a total of about 10 hrs that day...not to see the niners play the seahawks (or whoever it was).
The day they dedicated the field as Bill Walsh field and drove Bill out in that convertible. Everyone was there....besides Joe. Knowing Bill was about to pass away and would certainly be his last time stepping on that field, he didnt show. That is the one that bothered me the most.
Finally....I think his last shot for me will be Jerrys induction later this year. There's no other big event in the future that I can see me really giving a $hit if he shows up to or not, but if he doesn't show for that, say what you will, I dont wear that #16 Jersey again.
Come on Joe
