just took advantage of the fact that they had all this new stuff and they thought they would ride that. i think if they reach deep down inside, they realize they were not prepared. >> if the team had made it into the post season, extra game would have brought in extra cash to santa clara businesses. especially hotels and restaurants like benigans that benefit from game and parties. she works at levi stadium and said the niners' poor season will cost her. >> a sad, sad thing for santa clara. i work at the stadium as well. we won't have a lot of games anymore. so that's less work. >> and the kaepernick shirts she sells in the team store won't be flying off the shelves like they used to. in april his jersey was the number three seller in the nfl. now it doesn't even make the top 25 list. >> you never know what you're going to get. >> many fans say the new stadium met and exceeded their

one. the niners get shut out in the second half. 17-7, harbaugh, feeling the pain. san francisco. knocked out of the playoffs. >> we never get in. keep fighting. which our guys did today. >> i understand we're not eliminated from the playoffs. >> i think we're mathematically out of it. but you play this game because you love it. so we're not about to go out and lay down for anybody. as far as i'm kernel, we need to finish with two wins. >> it hurts. the 49ers have lost five of the last six meetings with the seahawks. colin kaepernick 0-4 with seattle. jim harbaugh's future with san francisco in serious doubt. i'll be back with more reaction coming up in sports. of course we'll have more later in the game. also tonight coming up. meanwhile let's get you to the protests taking place at the golden gate bridge. they're protesting the deadly shootings of unarmed black men
by police officers. today very similar to the protests nationwide. today the father of michael brown, the unarmed man shot and killed by a police officer in ferguson, missouri, came to san francisco to speak at third baptist church. nbc bay area's were christy smith was there and i'm sure so many went to hear what he had to say. >> reporter: it was an evening of speakers. michael brown sr. whom most people came to hear. what he said, well, they seemed to think it was exactly the right message. a large crowd gathered tonight at third bamt church in san francisco. speakers talking about what they see as injustice along racial lines. at the end, michael brown's father. >> we want to start by saying we really appreciate all the love and support. >> reporter: his comments were brief. his son, the unarmed 18-year-old who was shot and killed by a police officer in missouri.

is a lot of pressure on the prosecutors to either bring charges or not bring charges. when that kind of pressure is there, that's when they turn to grand juries and put all the pressure on these grand jurors so it takes them off them no matter what the decision. >> she went on to say they should be the last people. now to the continuing story in australia where a gunman is holding people hostage inside a chocolate shop. in the last few hours police say they have made contact with the suspect but they don't know his motive. in the last few hours five people have run out. police stay whole ordeal began this morning when a man entered with a gun concealed in a bag. the man forced hostages to hold up a black flag with arabic writing into the wend over. they are now looking at possible isis links.
