While last night’s game ended well for fans of the San Francisco 49ers. However, for some within Candlestick Park, they did not get to catch the end of the game. According to the Associated Press, 92 fans were ejected last night from Candlestick Park during the San Francisco 49ers 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Furthermore, another 25 were arrested for public intoxication and another 62 people were treated by the stadium’s medical staff.
Two other people were arrested for trying to break into a car in the stadium’s parking lot.
Of course, an NFL playoff game is going to get rowdy regardless of which city it is played in, but this is the second year in a row that 49ers fans have been accused of being abusive to the other team’s fans.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, last year, a divisional-round game at Candlestick Park led to numerous complaints from mistreatment by Saints fans. Local authorities responded during the NFC title game with undercover officers dressed as Giants fans.
While fans of the Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles seem to garner the most attention for being the worst fans, it is starting to look like the San Francisco 49ers fans could be trying to take the crown.
