The winless San Francisco 49ers asked fans if they actually care that much about winning.

A survey sent to fans was tweeted out by Twitter user “BozTank,” who wrote, “I’m a lifelong @49ers fan and that doesn’t change when they are 0-7, but this survey they just sent me hurts. ‘So, if we lose, do you care?'”

It is never, and I mean absolutely never, a good idea to ask football fans if they care about winning. Fans of football are rabid animals. They will tear people apart if it means their team can pick up an extra yard. Do they care about winning? This is one of the worst questions I’ve ever seen asked in sports.

Whoever is responsible for this should be fired on the spot, and then publicly shamed for the rest of his life. The 49ers are a joke of an organization asking dumb questions of their fans. It’s simply shameful, and any fan who answered anything other than “very important” should be banned from the stadium for life.
