Anyone who thinks it's out of line or that we're "above it" is crazy. This team has been the laughing stock of the league for going on 8 years now. Players asked to be released, information leaks reveal PR scandals, pants dropping at halftime, mumbled offensive playcalling, defenses calling out our offensive plays.
Face it.... I love the Niners and support them game in and game out, but they are an utter embarrassment. Bags on the heads doesn't mean you don't support the team. If you didn't, you wouln't go to the game in the first place.
Bags on the heads simply says this "I support this team but I'm expressing my extreme discontent with the state of this organization". It makes our voices heard and perhaps, if it gets airtime, ownership will react and try to make things right.
Players/coaches get paid to be caught up in this hoopla. As fans, we spend money on food, beer, tv packages, (in my case, trips across country for games) gear etc.
FOR WHAT? To watch this joke of a team bumble year in and year out? We're the ones who are truly being screwed in all of this, so it's up to us to let ownership know that it will not be accepted.
By all means, if you want to look like Fools then do it.
I can voice my displeasure at the stupidity of wearing bags on your heads at the SECOND Home game. 4th or 5th and we're winless is fine. But doing so now is frigging disgracefully showing your ass to the rest of the NFL.
Hell even in Detroit they did not do that as a whole. Theyshowed their displeasure by wearing orange. Made signs etc.
Bags are meant for fugly tw@ts that you end up having to chew your arm off the morning after so you don't wake the beast.
You guys can do it if you want but that's sh!t is completely uncalled for this f**king early in the season. Like it's going to change how our season shapes up anyway.
The Ain'ts did it cause they were PERENNIAL losers and were on a hell of a winless streak. You guys want to do it because you think you're smarter than the powers that be and that's just not true.
If you don't like how the season is shaping up and you have tickets, THEN DON'T GO TO THE f**kING GAME AND DON'T SELL YOUR TICKETS AND DEMAND REFUNDS!!!
They may not be refundable but when you get enough people on board then the organization HAS TO LISTEN to you. A bag on your head only shows how Fools go to something they don't like.
I would wear a bag if I had to attend an Ex's wedding. I would wear a bag if someone I hated was dead and I had to attend their funeral because I was pressured to attend. I would wear a bag if I had to attend a town hall meeting where you people whined about the 1st four games being Losses.
You people make me
AND IT IS
BENEATH YOU!!! HAVE SOME f**kING PRIDE!
