Don't be so surprised if so many non-49er fans give "No-Respect" to our team. The 49ers dominated the NFL for a solid 16 years ( nobody before or since has ever done it like that) and left a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouth. Analyst who were once players and the enemies media still wear those scars and show signs of hate .Cris Collingsworth and Boomer are just a few of the obvious. People love to hate the Cowboys out-loud but the 49ers are not too far behind if not as even when it comes to hate. Seahawk and Cardinal fans along with Ram fans hate the 49ers more then each other and yet we have not been a threat to either of these teams for years.Read their forums. I enjoy reading the hate. It's funny in a pathetic kinda way.
I like Collinsworth. I think he's been pretty accurate with his criticism of the team and his compliments too. He's one of the better announcers/analysts out there in my opinion.
Except for Nate Davis being the next Elway haha
Collinsworth isnt too bad cause he admits his bias against the niners, and is actually intelligent (ie: law degree). The Dukes, Boomers, Sapps etc are dumb as f*ck and have huge ego's that wont let them admit they are wrong, it just shifts the blame.
Talking head-wise if you want to find people who generally know what they are talking about look to Shannon Sharp or Strahan, both are good tv personalities, have the body of work to back up their opinions, and aren't afraid to admit when they were wrong.
