Even more reason to move to LA!
OMG. Dude, you just love to troll. You scower the boards for anything you can use in your pathetic argument, and then you post the same thing that you know has pissed people off before. This is just another reason NOT to move to LA. You see the Giants turnout for the parade? Now think of if the 49ers won the superbowl. YOu'd see that many people or more because football is a more popular sport. It proves that the problem is with the team and not the city, because NorCal fans support their teams VERY well and you can build a winner here. Giants are doing a hell of a lot better than that team in LA right now. Just because you're in LA doesn't make you good, just look at the Dodgers. Sure they're decent but they had the big money manager in Torre, the star player in Banny Ramirez+the big hitting line up, and they still haven't won s**t lately compared to the Giants.
If you can't rid yourself of this irrational obsession that the 49ers can't be the Los Angeles 49ers, can you at least learn how to spell "scour" correctly?
if the 49ers moved to LA theyd change their name, and possibly their colors. they would make no sense down there. the second they lose the "SF" logo, is the day the 49ers die as a franchise. the only people who want them to move to LA are the selfish fans who just want to have them locally.
the 49ers leave the bay area, theyre dead. they become the LA Hollywoods, and every real Niner fan on this board mourns the loss of the greatest franchise in NFL history. there were never any Cleveland Browns fans who sat in their living rooms on Sunday Morning with Ravens gear on.
They'd have to change the logo, sure, but that's about it. There's no reason they can't take the colors, history, and trophies.
I've said it before, if the Niners do decide to relocate to SoCal. I'm permanently disowning the team. This is coming from someone who lives in SoCal. And if I'm not mistaken, the gold in our colors symbolizes the gold rush of 1849, hence the name the 49ers. The gold rush didn't happen in Southern California.
And this is precisely the reason they can't take the history and the trophies or the team name. BECAUSE IT WOULD BE STUPID AND EVERYONE WOULD KNOW IT WAS STOLEN FROM THE BAY. But no, area69 will keep saying how there's no good reasons and blah blah blah blah blah and disregarding any intelligent argument.
Private organization can do whatever they want. They're under NO obligation to leave any name or any colors or any trophies here.
Just like the Baltimore Browns? Or the Tenessee Oilers? Or the Oklahoma City Supersonics? The LA 49ers wouldn't make sense, it'd be stupid and everyone would know that Jerry and Steve and Joe and Ronnie NEVER played for the LA 49ers, they played for the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers. The LA Cougars would make more sense.
The only reason Modell left the Browns' name behind is because the NFL was willing to step in. There's no guarantee that the NFL will do the same in our case.
As for the Oilers, they actually took their history and name and colors to Tennessee. For a while, they were the Tennessee Oilers.
The Thunder have the Sonics' history and trophy, albeit a different name and colors.
And then there's the Indianapolis...um...Colts.
Actually I'm pretty sure OKC left Seattle's trophy in Seattle but I could be wrong on that. Not to mention that if the NFL stepped in to keep the friggin name of the browns in cleveland, I'd venture to guess they'd do the same for the team by the bay that has 5 superbowls.
Seriously dude, you just come in an hijack threads that don't have anything to do with LA and make it about stealing the 9ers. Everyone is getting so sick of your schtick.
Nope. The Thunder kept Seattle's trophy.
And the majority of times, we've seen that the NFL does NOT step in to keep history and names behind. Cleveland is the exception, and that's only because their fan base is INSANE.
If the NFL can allow the Baltimore Colts to become the Indianapolis Colts, they can allow the San Francisco 49ers to become the Los Angeles 49ers.
you're wrong, the trophy is still in Seattle: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/jerrybrewer/2013265040_brewer27.html
You act like the 9ers fan base isn't insane. Sure, they're quiet and sit on their hands but those same people show up every weekend for a team that hasn't made the playoffs in 8 years and no black outs? That's friggin impressive. There is too much history in SF for the NFL not to do the same thing with the 9ers history. And you still didn't respond to my post about how everyone is sick of your schtick.
