Are the San Francisco 49ers the most hated team in the US?

Aug 2, 2014 at 10:06 PM--


San Francisco 49ers fans love their fiery head coach, Jim Harbaugh. However, the rest of the NFL may not feel the same way. Or maybe it is the fact that for the span of nearly two decades, starting in the 80's, the 49ers beat up on -- well -- just about everyone.

Whatever the reason, if the below maps are correct, the 49ers are one of the least liked teams in the United States.

Reddit user KMHokie35 asked Reddit users who their least favorite team was. He then gathered the information based on region/state and created the maps below to give you a better visual of NFL hate.

Let's start with the regional map of the United States. A lot of this is not surprising. Seahawks fans hate the 49ers. 49ers fans hate the Seahawks. Cowboys fans are not big on the Eagles. The Cardinals are still holding a grudge for Super Bowl XLIII. There is nothing terribly surprising here.



What gets interesting is when KMHokie35 displayed the data based on continent. There is some serious USA hate for San Francisco's home team, the 49ers. Seriously Mexico? Oh, and Australia -- what gives?!



PS - Kudos to you Africa!

GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss. So we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to see what questions you had about the team. Let's jump in and take a look. Who are you hoping for (as defensive coordinator)? - Brian J. I think we are all hoping for some big name from the outside, but I don't expect that to

49ers DC candidate is brutally honest about team's Super Bowl defeat, Wilks firing

Kansas City Chiefs defensive backs coach Dave Merritt clearly has no qualms about speaking his mind. He is a candidate to replace former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who was fired following the team's Super Bowl defeat against the Chiefs. Wilks spent just one season with the 49ers. Merritt recently participated in a radio interview on "The Sports Show" and attributed at least part of the blame for San Francisco's crushing defeat to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Their offense went 3-for-12 on third down," Merritt said, per Niners Wire. "Our offense went 9-for-19, but if your offense

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
