Was tonight the loudest booing that you have ever heard at Candlestick? I have been watching the 49ers since 1995, and I remember some loud boos that came out during the "Rattay Years", but I have never seen Candlestick boo someone as loud as they did Alex tonight.
I only started watching in '95 as well and don't remember hearing boos this loud. Would like to hear the responses to this as well...
I imagine the boos Steve Young got were worse though. Back then, I'm sure the fanbase was even more... electric... given how high-profile our games were at the time of the early 90s.
I don't recall anyone booing and chanting for a player by name though.
That was a disgusting display on the part of 9er fans as far as I am concerned.
Smith on the other hand to his credit said "the fans have a right to boo since they pay the costs" and also said "I don't think I could boo myself" or something to this effect.
At least this shows he gets it.
Still I don't believe that fans should have been such asses about it.
I think we are the worst by default and that's only cause we have yet to play our Division games. The Rams lost to the Lions for cryin out loud.
