certainly crossed my mind.....

The fact that OP hasn't put up a paypal for this and is just trying to see if people want in or not tells me that so far this isn't a scam. If he starts a verified kickstarter account or has some other way to verify the dude in question is getting the money, before he asks for it (which is what he seems to be doing) then that leads me to believe it isn't a scam.

It's not like he was saying "here is a paypal pay me money now it'll get to him i promise" dude is thinking it out.

Hope you don't mean that.

I grew up in San Mateo, live in LA now. I see about one 49er game a year... last year it was Steelers @ 49ers when the lights went out.

I went down to San Diego to see Packers @ Chargers with my Packer-fan buddy as well.

My point is that I can afford to go to a game or two every year. Billy cannot. I wanted to see if we could get Billy a gameday experience. That's it.

This is me at the Pittsburgh game last year.

you need to shave^^^^^
Just so some of you know, the WZ has pulled together before to pay for a fellow WZer to fly from Missouri, pick him up at the airport, stay at another WZer's house, brought to the game to tailgate with us, paid for his ticket to the game, and sent back on a flight to Missouri. If some of you don't want to help, then don't. No reason to s**t all over this thing if you can't/don't want to.
Wow you play the banjo
Is that a Shawntae Spencer jersey? lol

Dude, people heard his story so they want to do something nice for him. He could be lazy as hell or he could just be a sad lonely die hard fan. Either way, the point is to help him out so he can have a good time because he is a fellow 9er fan. Are we supposed to be like "well this guy's story is sad, but there are people with sadder stories so we should just go help them out instead!"? BTW sending someone with cancer would be retarded. My grandmother just got over cancer and a person who has cancer can't go to a football game, they would be exposed to too many germs while dealing with chemotherapy and too exhausted to actually enjoy it. So the whole "WELL THERE ARE PEEPOL WIF WORSE PROBLEMZ WHO COULD GO 2 A GAME" argument is retarded IMO. The guy doesn't live close to SF, the cost for a trip+hotel+tickets is probably hard for him to afford, people want to help him, that's it basically. Dude didn't ask for this.

Thanks Willis.

The only Zoner I've met in real life is Burrito Smuggler (Greg), who also lives in LA now. He can vouch for me if necessary.

For real though, that dude stinks.....When I use to sit by the end zone he'd come cruising by. I like him much better from a distance..

Simmer down. No need to get yourself warned simply because you don't want to donate money.

To everyone that has such vitriol over the idea of contributing: There are lots of people here who don't want to donate, for whatever reason. That's completely okay. Do me a huge favor and just stay out of the thread. We get it, you disagree due to some kind of opinion or principle or whatever. Have a wonderful day on the many other threads we have here at 49erswebzone.

There is absolutely no need for you to sit here and take shots at Billy (who never asked for any of this, BTW). Just move along and let the people who want to contribute in some way do so. Not agreeing with the sentiment is one thing, but being a complete jerk about it is another.
I will be at the Jets game, I could confirm Billy is there and I will take a pic of his foot.

If all adds up, I will show him medicinal smoke for his foot.
