Also, if you find it hard to earn credibility here, don't take it personally. We literally had two 49ers fans on here for years, and that's it. Then, Harbaugh shows up in San Francisco, and now the place is filled with 49ers fans. You can guess what kind of impression that leaves on us, many of which have been here for a long time (this forum predates the oldest registration dates you see by years, but on another URL, by the way) and were sitting here talking about how much things sucked when we went 4-12 in the last year of Holmgren's tenure, and 5-11 the next with Mora, etc.
No worries, I've been on forums enough to know not to take things personally and to have a sense of humor, it's just the internet. Plus, I know I'm in enemy territory, so I've got to tread lightly. I've seen the threads that people have made about Marvin49 and whatnot haha.
I gotta say that the big upswing for both the Niners and Seahawks in recent years have brought out a bunch of irrational homers on both sides that make certain discussions embarrassing/irritating. Such is the case when the teams are winning, so I'll deal with it. Better than sucking and being the laughingstock of the league.
I actually venture into this forum more so than the webzone. I know a lot of posters here always berate certain Niner fans, and ask them "why are you here on another team's forum blah blah blah", and the same thing happens over on the WZ. It actually gets tiresome reading the same fan-boy/homeristic posts in the webzone, especially during the awful offseason, and it's nice to get a different perspective on things from another view point. Plus, I'm an NFL fan in general, so I like to know what's going on with other teams, especially a heavyweight in my team's division. Helps my fantasy knowledge as well haha. Although I gotta say, I read some of the posts that some people make here and it makes me rage
