I'm still proud of our team......

I love Niners, but they are the new Eagles....aka Chokers. 1-2 in NFC Championship games is pathetic, not to mention losing the SB...if anything they will be remember for the unit that ended the perfect record in the SB. Love my team, but I don't like chokers. I think the window closed last night. 8 or 9 win team next season.

What i don't understand is why are there people who watch football and doesn't root for a team hate the 49ers? the 49ers have been sucking for so long until 3 years ago and now everyone is hating. why?

Glamour city glamour franchise greatest alumni greatest legacy 5 Lombardis Walsh Rice Young Lott. It is like we are the Lakers! Everyone from all the rest of these grab locales throughout this country hate on the 49ers and the Bay Area because they just don't measure up. Kind of like Oakland denizens hate San Franciscans. There is plenty of jealousy and envy of the 49ers storied history and San Francisco in general

Feel your pain, but you must believe.
Who is hating? I don't have many 49er friends here in illinois and they were overwhelmingly against the Seahawks. But understand 5 SB wins will get some resentment/hate
I think the window closed last night. We are the new Eagle's of the NFL.. going 1-2 in NFC Championship games is pathetic. Then losing the SB, very more embarrassing. I love my team, but let's be realistic we won't be returning anytime soon. Oh, and if Kap wants 18 million per, lethim walk. 6-8 million per

When you put together a run we had from 1981-1998 there is a built in level of hatred from around the league. Now add in the fact that harbaugh is generally not liked across other fan bases and it leads to the negative tones that get thrown at the niners. As a fan just disregard it and take it as a compliment. Usually fans don't waste hate on "nobodies".
winning = hate

Being over here on the east coast, just about every football fan I know is a fan of another team. The ones that hate the Niners tend to do so either because (1) we're good now and we've been a thorn in a lot of teams' sides over the past few years; or (2) they don't like the attitude of some of our players (Kaepernick is the most frequently mentioned) and/or newer fan base.

I was watching the game at beachfront 301 in hunthingbeach and man was there a lot of heartbreak there. I actually thought we were going to pull it off, Me in my kaep jersey and my girl with crab jersey on. I though we were going to be the best couple at the bar..... now excuse me while i have my glass of whiskey to ease the pain at least a little bit.
Look at it this way, Seattle just played in their third conference title game all time. Since 1988 there has been three times we've made it the 3 straight conference title games. Throw in 1997 and it's been 10 conference title games in 25 years. That in and of its self is impressive, but when you factor in we basically took a decade off it mind boggling.
i know a few people who don't root for any team but just hate the 49ers. just leave me scratching my head.lol guess they really like to hate.

I know a bunch of a*****e bandwagon type fans. Every year they start the season as Cowboys fans, Texans fans...when their team goes down the tubes, come playoff time they only thing they have is rooting for whatever team to beat the 49ers in the playoffs. They are totally ignorant as fans, know nothing about the teams they are supporting, they just want the 49ers to lose.
It's human nature.

Humans need to protect what is important to their self-concept (e.g., their respective team that they financially and emotionally invest in).

Some can achieve this by rationalizing their success, but in the event that a person's team underperforms, the alternative to protect what you value is to bring others down.
A lot of it is media driven.
