49ers Fans Express Displeasure: “Fire Nolan” Ad to Fly Over Stadium on Game Day

Dec 12, 2007 at 4:35 PM--


49er fan John Davis, also known on our forums as nflguy49, has had enough, and he is making his feelings known to anyone who can look up to the sky. John and other 49er fans all helped pay for a blimp with a lighted display. The blimp will fly 3,000 feet over the stadium during Saturday's game and read, "FIRE NOLAN." It will fly above the stadium between 5:45 and 6:00PM PST.

"We are tired of watching our team get out coached every week," stated Davis. "Nolan is a dictator. He acts as though he has already accomplished great things and thus everyone should worship his every word."

Davis cited several issues, such as Nolan's clock management, Nolan's relationship with Alex Smith, and his poor calls on 4th down spanning back to last season's game against the Rams where a 4th down call is believed to have cost the team the game. All of those issues, and then some, should be enough to signal an end to Nolan's tenure, contends Davis.

Nolan has come under fire from the media and fans alike after this weeks events. Quarterback Alex Smith's comments to the Mercury News indicated that Nolan was undermining him in the locker room. Mike Nolan, on his weekly KNBR show, responded by saying that it was a misunderstanding. Since then, Smith and Nolan released a statement saying that their relationship was patched up.

Add this weeks events to a 3 and 13 start and arguably the worst offense in 49er history and you have the basis for a fan uprising.

"As fans were tired of spending thousands of dollars every year to fly out and watch games and to watch the 49ers on the NFL package, only to see the poor product that Nolan has created.

"Nolan is an empty suit and we can't take it anymore."

Maybe 49ers Fans Don't Deserve Garoppolo

By Gilbert Brink

Face it, most of you don't deserve QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, you, the ones who spend your entire weekend pining over other QBs and lamenting the one the 49ers currently have as QB1. The spoiled, ungrateful brats of the 49ers fanbase who cannot find it in them to show any appreciation for the man they call Jimmy G. Fans like these make a situation insufferable for a player dedicating his life and body to the team. As Garoppolo spends his weeks working his way back from another high-ankle sprain, many 49ers fans are fantasizing about how to replace him. This isn't a foreign concept for the 49ers. No QB is ever good enough for this fanbase. Steve Young can attest to this from his experience in the early 90s. He was never going to be Joe, and that was a big problem for a good
