When you think of the San Francisco 49ers during the 80’s and 90’s most people think of the championships. For 49ers fans they remember the family aspect of the organization
Eddie DeBartolo brought more than championships to the organization. He brought the feel of love towards people. The 49ers State of the Franchise event brings the fan base closer to what the organization is doing new each year — not to mention introducing some of the new rookies and vets on the team as well.
Last year, the 49ers introduced the State of the Franchise event, and it was back this past Wednesday. You can watch the whole video here, but I was on hand and have put together a photo gallery of pictures.
The one thing that is very apparent since Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch took over is that there is only one voice and one common goal. Rumors are not coming out everyday. As a season ticket holder I have seen a complete 180 since they took over the organization. That feeling of family is back, as is a feeling of appreciation from the organization.
Levi’s Stadium is a work in progress, but I like that the 49ers are listening to the Season Ticket Holders and are taken action to make a better fan experience.
The players new and old have a better chance to succeed when the egos are checked out at the door. Judging by the vibe and body language I witnessed on Wednesday that has happened. We are watching something special being built.
