P.S. To all of you non-Zoners, it ain't whining if it is true... Now, go back into your hole...

Yea brotha...its whining.
We lost...its over...deal with it. The excuses sound like Seahawks fans did when they cried endlessly about losing to Pittsburgh...meanwhile forgetting that they couldn't run the ball and their receivers had a terrible time getting open. We had the ball inside the 10 4 times and gave it to Frank Gore none of those downs. That's our fault...not the refs.
We'll be back this year...no fret
Good for you brother.... I've been a fan for 43 years...just saying. BTW, I'm not fretting or freaking after last night's debacle...nor am I making excuses for the team. Seattle beat them badly and I will be the first to admit that the Niners lost their cool several times. The Hawks were definitely the better team last night...and also the dirtier. That hit which broke Ian Williams' ankle was definitely dirty.
All of that being said, the comments above were posted after the GB game not after the Seattle game so my comments about the officiating (i.e. Matthews not being penalized for hitting Staley, Staley being penalized for just talking, Matthews taunting Kap after a tackle and not getting penalized while Bowman gets a flag for doing far less on the GB sidelines to name just a few obvious blunders by the men in black and white) don't apply to the game last night.
Now, THAT being said, the officials were better overall last night than in the GB game but they still blew a bunch of calls too. At least twice that I saw, Seattle players would hit way after the whistle and not get called while ticky tack "hits" like Aldon Smith's get a flag. I'm just tired of the inconsistency. I see it every game and it is really beginning to bug me. I don't care if it is the Niners or another team, just get the damn call right!! If it takes putting an official in the booth who can both throw a flag or pick one up then so be it. The NFL just has too much money to embarrass itself game after game with poor officiating. The Super Bowl was an absolute disgrace! Fix the problem. I'm not asking for favoritism at all....just fairness. If you call that whining, then I guess we have different definitions of the word.
