I fully respect the 49ers as one of the most celebrated, and all time great NFL franchise.
That being said. A good majority of 9er fans with use it randomly in an irrelevant situation " WE WILL WIN SUNDAY BECAUSE 5 SUPERBOWLS SAYS WE KNOW HOW TO WIN" Well those WERE 20 years ago, and worth every bit of praise they get but mean absolutely nothing in the current situation.
I can understand if someone says something like " the niners are garbage and always will be" i understand that context to bring up the superbowls.
But a good majority of people bring it up in irrelevant situations and a lot of people who use it never even saw the niners win those.
