San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
The pre-game issue, available on Friday, Sept. 14, will feature a cover story by Pro Football Hall of Fame columnist Art Spander who profiles his nine toughest 49er players of all-time. Other features include The Gambler, which returns after correctly picking all three winners last week, with three more great picks, plus three games to avoid.
Other not-to-be-missed stories include The Contrarian, who checks out the social media buzz on the 49ers opening-week win against the Green Bay Packers and argues the other side by advising everyone to “calm down.” Plus, the weekly Fanning the Flames section of fan-centric content offers up a guide to attending the home opener, with transportation info, tailgating tips and a special adult beverage recipe in honor of the handshake that went awry in last year’s 49ers/Lions contest.
Other content features of 49ers INSIDER digital magazine include:
- Expert contributors from the world of sports, who cover the 49ers from a local, regional and national perspective
- Profiles and Q&A features from players and coaches
- Fan photos from tailgating parties and from the game
- Cheerleader photo galleries
