Coming in at #7 in the FanWide Top NFL Teams Ranking are the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers, also known as the Bay Bombers, have a history like no other. The 49ers have had two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history in Joe Montana and Steve Young. In addition, the Niners have also had two of the best receivers in NFL history in Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens. The star power of Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Steve Young, and Ronnie Lott are essential in why the 49ers have won five Super Bowls. Those five Super Bowls were all won between a thirteen year period (1981-1994). The Bay Bombers have a fan base like no other, considering the fans are still as passionate today as they were in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Even though the past five seasons for the 49ers have been underwhelming, the wit of Kyle Shanahan and the talent of Jimmy Garoppolo will scare many opponents in this upcoming season.
In the search for the top football fan club, FanWide has interviewed the leaders of several prominent football fan clubs across the league and across the nation. One such leader is Joe Leonor, a lifelong Niners fan and leader of prominent Niners’ fan club Niner Empire.
FanWide asked him the following questions:
You just moved to Seattle from San Francisco for work. On your to-do list is finding a new doctor, new restaurants to order take-out from, new grocery stores, a new cable provider, and trying to understand how the public transportation works. And the worst part: you left your beloved 49ers behind. In San Francisco, you could always count on catching the game with your friends or instantly making new ones since everybody in town was a 49ers fan.
