Considering the people that built the Superbowl teams are either long gone or dead, I'd say it's pretty irrelevant at this point. But I do think it speaks to the expectations among some that every year is going to be the year the Niners come back.
I didn't know what you meant which is why I inquired to what you actually did mean. The phrase "for years" is ambiguous.

Regardless of the recent downfall of the franchise, it's still not enough for me to wish for current success now for past decades of consistent losing. The legacy of the 49ers is still intact...for now at least. If they were to lose consistently for the next twenty years or so, then it would be quite daunting.

It's not an issue of legacy. Historically the Niners are unquestionably a storied franchise.

It's a question of operational efficiency, and since the ownership/structure change the Niners have been a bad franchise.
