Looking for a good sports bar in San Francisco, please

Some friends will be in San Francisco over Super Bowl weekend and they would like a couple of suggestions for some good sports bars to watch the game. They will have a car, and anything in the greater San Francisco area should be fair game.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need any additional information. Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply. I appreciate it!
P.S. This is my first venture out of the Spirits board, so please move this thread to another location if needed.
Try The Republic. It's relatively newer so the TVs are great and the space is comfortable.

I've been going to 4th Street Sports Bar for years and years. It's attached to the Marriott and close to the Moscone Center. The food is middle of the road burger and fries stuff. They have a decent selection of beers, clientele is sports savvy, staff is reasonably attentive. Sightlines are pretty good and the chairs are not too uncomfortable.
Green's Sports Bar in Russian Hill can be real interesting: cheap beer, rowdy but plenty of screens. No food, you order from a bunch of menus at the bar and it gets delivered. Parking is a total pain.
At the end of the day, I'd probably ditch the sports bar concept and just pop over to Pier 23 on the Embarcadero. I watched the AL playoffs there and liked the vibe. Good beers, good booze, good people. They have a real kitchen. It's not fancy, more of a honky tonk with a view.
yeah, you need to be more specific in what you're looking for in a sports bar.
it doesn't have food, but i've always enjoyed danny coyle's in the lower haight; it shares the general unpretentious vibe of the lower haight.
