Do you think the San Francisco 49ers made the cut?
No. And probably not even close. Keep in mind, this team is currently 1-11 and has an ownership group that has alienated its own fan base. Does one need reminding of the constantly empty seats at Levi’s Stadium on a week-to-week basis?
It’s not a shock. Why blame the Faithful for not wanting to partake in what has been an abysmal two-plus years in Santa Clara? And until things change with the 49ers, this is likely going to be the case for quite a while.
Other NFL Teams on the List
Sixteen NFL squads made Fandom 250. More than a few make sense. San Francisco’s cross-bay rivals, the Oakland Raiders are at No. 53. And the Seattle Seahawks come into play at No. 77.
But what’s a bit of a shock is seeing the Chicago Bears (No. 169), Cleveland Browns (No. 173) and New York Jets (No. 175) on there. All three of these teams stink too, and yet they make the cut.
Chicago and New York make sense, based off their respective media markets alone. But Cleveland?
At least there are some pretty good television and entertainment fan bases on Fandom 250 to get lost in, rather than watching the 49ers continue to wallow in mediocrity.
