I have said it time and time again our home field is a joke sometimes when I go to games. Old people complain about 49er FANS BEING LOUD AND CHEERING like wtf give me a break. We let half of the other teams fans in the stadium like we did on sunday with packers and always do with cowboys fans. If you dont go to be 100 loud and cheer on your team then why go. I cant wait to move next year hopefully some of those soft ass older fans ( No offense to older people or people around during the 80s runs) but you and you whining have to go.
Half the stadium? That's crazy, I've been a STH for a long time and out of all the 49er/Packer games I've been to at the Stick, I was surprised by just how FEW Packer fans there were Sunday.
The Packers are one of the legacy NFL teams, a huge nationwide fan base, plus their fans travel well...they probably had at least 25% of the crowd at the 1997 NFCCG. But wasn't the case Sunday. The majority of their fans were down low in the end zones, and while they were vocal, I can't speak to how it sounded on TV, but at the stadium they were quickly drowned out by Niner fans. Multiple times they'd try starting a "Go Pack Go" chant, and it was almost instantly killed by very loud booing from 49er fans. I'm not saying 49er fans will be mistaken for the 12th Man anytime soon, but gotta give credit when it's due and Sunday they turned out and were loud.
Interesting what you hope for the new stadium...my hope is that most of the d-bag element who think a game ticket is their free pass to act like a belligerent a** and has become more prevalent at the Stick will have their herd thinned out.
