Personally I like it when a fav team shows it's true colors early in the season. If they shine I am ho\appy to block off the time to enjoy the competition and excitement of a good season. If they suck big time then I am just as happy to write them off for the year and use that time for something productive.
With football they get the 3 game rule. Sorta like three strikes and your out. SF picked up one BIG strike last week so they better at least keep the game close or be banished from my house for another year…
