Generally your first claim to a team is to be from the area. I'm from SoCal...so you could probably have called me a bandwagoner when I first became a fan. The things is though...that I stayed a fan, through the thick and thin....all of the 23 years since.
opposing fans hate harbaugh and want nothing more than to see him fail. he ran his mouth when he was hired at stanford and people told him to stay quiet and all he did was take a terrible team and whoop everyones ass. the more teams you beat, the more hatred from fan bases youll get, and boy does that feel goooood :)
The media and many coaches hated Walsh and Eddie D, just as they hate Harbaugh now. The difference is that Jed is not hated and Harbaugh is a magnate for hate.
The players are generally not hated and weren't in the 80s. This team is not arrogant, but the coaches are/were and that's what makes them targets. Should they care? No, most coaches are arrogant or they wouldn't be HCs...or successful HCs. Would I rather have Singletary back...argh! NO!
