I was, for a few years, when they were the "dream team" of the 1980s, and won 3 super-bowls, what would be called a "fair weather fan." It was a bit of an "experiment" to see what was going on inside the minds of such fans. (My youngest even performed at the super bowl held at Stanford--she was in the San Francisco Girls' Chorus at the time, and they along with a couple of other kids choirs sang the national anthem.)
Truthfully, I'm not that much into sports--or at all--and I really am disgusted with the obscene salaries they all make for just playing a game! Imagine if they got paid commensurate with that fact, and our teachers got paid the kinds of salaries awarded to sports players!! Wouldn't that be far better for the country?
No, the sports are a mere distraction from the political mischief that goes on daily, much as the gladitorial games were for ancient Rome.
I really don't give a rat's patoot--and if I am curious about who won a game--the results will be on the nightly news. I have better things to do with my time than sit watching grown men chase each other and a ball up and down a field or court.
It will be tough to win in that division to begin with never mind all the losses between the retirements, coaches, and now Aldon Smith. I do not see them having a good year but hopefully they will not be worse than the Browns.
