(3.)Then do not roll out the shock and awe campaign when other fans of other teams accuse our fan base of whining.
1. Yes, people do actually believe this and not every one who believes it is f**king stupid or some junky fan who's in denial and can't stand his or her team losing.
2. Kap had three chances to win this game, even with the s**tty calls from the referees, and blew it. Our team lost this game. Thinking the refs kept Seattle in the game with b******t calls is not the same as thinking SF had no chance because the refs stole the game. This game was certainly winnable.
3. Go around to other forums and you'll see a ton of people (with no affiliation to the 49ers) saying the league gave the game to Seattle. Saints fans, Cardinals fans, Rams fans, Falcons fans, Cowboys fans, Jets fans, have at it. Are they whiners too?
I don't see this as black and white, like you do. In my head, it's not so obvious that, if someone doesn't think the refs are impacting the game, I think they're a retard and will let them know it. I, and I'm sure others who feel the way I do have an open mind and am willing to consider all possibilities.
Can you at least admit this: The NFL makes a LOT more $ when a game is close. We're talking A LOT MORE $. There is, at the very least, motivation for the league to keep games close.
