Do we have a bad fan base compared to the rest of the NFL?

Hey, did you guys know that the Jets and Giants play in New Jersey and not New York?

Actually, they play in the United States of America

Holy s**t no way?!?!?!?!?!?
I dunno, even going back to the 80's, it seemed like the fan base was strong in the outlying areas, but for the Niners that area is pretty big. I remember making trips to Southern Oregon and seeing Niner merchandise in the stores, so they have a wide "zone". If you think about it, there is nothing North of SF until you get to Portland and that is where Seachicken territory starts.

I would never want them to change the name though, that just seems wrong with our history.

I will take as many Niner fans as we can get, but it is kind of annoying sometimes when I run into a Niner "fan" in the Northwest and they do not know who Dwight Clark is, but they are sporting Niners gear like it is a gang uniform. That is half the reason why I joined this forum, I know I can find good fans in California and even Oregon, but up here it is like they do it just to be a nuisance, especially when their fondest memories are of Terrell Owens doing something odd. Rather than the 88 Super Bowl, but I am old and stubborn. While shopping and wearing my old Rice jersey I walked by a young fan, all gangstered up, wearing a VERY loud jacket that displayed all the Super Bowl years, in his baggies with boxers hanging out he just snubbed me. A real fan will call me out with the much appreciated "NINERS!!!" with a fist pump of pride. I aware that scares the hell out of people when it happens.
The 49ers are soooo cute! cuz they dance at kick off!
