    Re: My experience at Candlestick as a Saints fan

    Cool story bro. Proof? maybe some pics of you there? This story is such B.S. I'm sensing a bitter saints fan trying to make SF look bad. You giants fans seriously believe someone would TAKE OUT THEIR GENITALS and wave them at an elderly woman? That won't even happen in Philly. And Usher laughed and said to leave before u get stabbed? LOL. Get the fck lost troll. Get over the loss already you aint fan.

    Re: My experience at Candlestick as a Saints fan

    Unfortunately, you have to expect that going in to an opposing teams field. Now, to say a cop laughed and didn't help you and an usher saying hope you don't get stabbed is a little ridiculous, especially with what happened in the preseason game. Sports gets people heated, just asked the Saints fan who shot two 49ers fans in Atlanta. I am a Niner fan and went to the Baltimore game on Thanksgiving. I got heckled, taunted, etc. but you have to go in expecting that. I actually had fun getting into it with the other fans. You are going to get some bad apples at any place you go to. I just think that some of those things you mentioned are a bit out there.

    all kiddin aside, sorry to hear that ... all i can say is you would not have that same experience at the Met (for a Giants game ... Jets game diff. story) ... sure you'll see a drunk or two get escorted out, but overall our fans are pretty classy

    I have lived in CA about 10 years and I can tell you being an east coast transplant, CA is not what it cracked up to be. Essentially the entire state is living on wellfare and has been over run with degenearte and their families looking for the "best" handout and CA offers is on a silver platter. I digress....

    Dennis Miller said it best, "CA is a state of losers run by losers.." and so right he is. I ask you directly about the type and background of the typical fan in Candlestick as being lower class, probably with a boat-load of illegitimate kids, the whole family travel by Honda Civic....tattood with every gang -sign and drinking a 40 of Old English?? You get my drift?

    The weather here is great but the collective class of its citizens (sorry about the stereotype, but its true) is not. Anyone considering going to Candlestick, save the $350 and watch it on TV, I promise you it will be a better experience

    Re: My experience at Candlestick as a Saints fan

    I joined just to comment on this post... I was born in SF, live in Silicon Valley and am a lifelong Niner fan. That kind of BS is NOT indicative of Niner fans. Sure, we have our fair share of ne'er do wells, as I think all fan bases for all sports do... But most Niner fans are cordial, kind and decent. It bothers me a little when a group of individuals act like this and then people think, well all Niner fans must be like that, and even worse, the area is like that. It's simply not true. We are really passionate right now, after years of not doing well, after years of watching Saints, Giants, Patriots, Steelers and Packers super bowls, and the intensity out here is unlike anything I've seen since the 80s. That's no excuse. But we are not all thugs. Most of us are respectful and decent, and love our team just like the Saints fans love theirs and the Giants fans love theirs. It's a damn shame you had that experience. If you had been sitting next to me, I would have said good luck and given you a cheers. The Saints are a great team and played an awesome game. Please know, those are individuals that acted like that. Human beings with shirts on. They don't represent me, my family, or the Niners.
    Here's to a great game on Sunday between two great teams - and let's hope that all the mean-hearted ugly BS can be left on the side of the road, and fans can watch this game with mutual respect for their teams and each other.

    Re: My experience at Candlestick as a Saints fan



    [quote user="NOLAfan"]Hello all,
    I'm not sure if this is the section to be posting this, so mods, feel free to move/delete this thread if it's in the wrong spot.

    I just wanted to give y'all a heads up about what to expect at Candlestick should you arrive wearing your NYG gear. First off, I fully expected to be shouted at, smack-talked to, harassed, and even pelted with a peanut or two. It's a playoff game and I was in hostile territory representing the opposing team; I get it.

    However, there was hate behind the fans' actions. They wanted to fight. There was no line they wouldn't cross. There is a huge presence of gangster thugs. I spoke to several women who were groped and fondled while standing in line for refreshments. Here is a brief grocery list of things that my group of 5 experienced:

    -Stepping off the bus, we were surrounded by 7-10 SF fans who got within 1'' of our faces, yelling like they were drill sergeants. Saying things like "Suck my ****" to my 57 year old mother as well as my girlfriend.
    -Slapped on the side of the head from behind prior to entering the stadium. An usher saw this and laughed, saying we might want to leave before we get stabbed
    -My mother had a beer poured on her head from behind while in our seats.
    -I was shoved INTO a urinal from behind while relieving myself at halftime
    -Girlfriend was groped several times while in line for refreshments
    -Thug took out his genitals and waved them at my mother after the game.
    -Asked 2 cops for any help they could provide getting us to our bus, as were were threatened by a group of fans saying they were going to jump us - they told us that we were on our own and recommended running.

    There was minimal usher/security presence within the seating area of the stadium, so do not expect to have any security watching your area. Ushers that we did see were mostly female, who wouldn't be able to stop any physical altercation should it have ensued.

    I would STRONGLY advise against walking into the tailgating area. This is where it was the most hostile. I was shoved and slapped several times here. Retaliating was out of the question (I am 6' 2'', 215 lbs), as there were huge groups looking for fights.

    Good luck, keep your heads down, and if you are there with your girl or mother, STAY NEXT TO THEM AT ALL TIMES. Do not let them go to the bathroom or concession stands alone. These classless thugs are just that - classless.

    Good luck, and GO NYG!

    SF's finest:

    That's disgusting and someone else posted a link to the Saints board with other Saint fans' similar complaints. The give away that Candlestick and their fans are garbage -- apparently there are signs saying "Mutual Respect." If you've got to put up a sign because your fans all act like out of control kids, then that says a lot.</P>


    I'd love to see Harbough and the 49ers say how they love these wonderful fans of theirs. It should be brought up to them for comment. </P>


    I never understood starting something with the fan of another team -- it's a game. Give me a break. I understand thatthere are garbage "fans" everywhere, but that is the mostamount of complaints that I've seen since our last game in Philly. And that's mostly verbal abuse. </P>

    Re: My experience at Candlestick as a Saints fan

    Had a similar experience in Philly this year. I was there with my buddies and a couple of their wives. I'm 6'6" 254 lbs. I Played rugby in college and still do recreationally, and have been doing MMA and martial arts since I was young. These ***le fans were throwing **** at me taunting me and stuff. So I turned around and pointed at 5 of them. I said "come down here and do this to my face you filth". My friends who were there with me are about my size, if not bigger. So when they wouldn't stop, all 4 of us got up and walked up the stairs towards them. Their eyes got HUGE as they saw the 4 of us walking up to them. My friend said "We aren't asking you to stop, if you don't, we are going to break you neck." The rest of the game we were treated like royalty. When the Giants won, some other drunk filthy scumbags singled out my buddy's wife as she was coming out of the bathroom. We went up to them said "is there a problem here?" They said "yeah you're in our territory and we are going to kick your ***". Needless to say, they regretted that decision. Moral to the story is, ******bags even try to mess with me. I don't understand why, but they do. And idk if there is any NYPD on these boards, but in my experience, the majority of cops are jerks, thus explaining your SF predicament.
