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."

OverTheCap.com updated its salary cap space page, and the San Francisco 49ers saw a jump in available space by about $11 million. That's good news for a team that was expected to have trouble re-signing some of its key impending free agents, let alone do anything of significance to add to its roster. San Francisco was previously estimated to have about $12.5 million in salary-cap space heading into the new league year. That is based on a salary-cap figure of about $180.5 million per team, which has not been finalized. Still, it is a good starting point for an estimate, given the NFL and NFLPA recently notified teams that the floor had been raised from $175 million to $180

NBC Sports' Peter King offered some scheduling insight into what will likely be a 17-game season in 2021. The NFL continues negotiations with broadcast partners on a new television deal, and the networks and league are working on the assumption that the regular season will increase by one game. Until now, there has been speculation on where those 17th games will take place. We already knew that each NFC West team would be matched up against the AFC North opponent with the same spot in its standings from this past season. That means the San Francisco 49ers taking on the last-place Cincinnati Bengals in 2021. King is hearing that the AFC will be hosting all 16 of the
