This is really not a discussion that he can have with the current 49ers organization that has all but isolated itself from its history. The current organization has not earned; or maybe even deserve such.
So just because they were hit by a beastly hurricane 5 years ago everyone has to kiss their ass now? I felt sorry for them and all but f**k that, I don't give a crap about it in relation to football. Guys like Rod Woodson have been more helpful recently to our org than a guy like Lott has, and Rod only played here for 1 year yet he was here giving our DBs tips and speaches and talking to guys. Lott was a great player and did a lot for the 49ers but the 9ers did a lot for him, obviously Eddie was there and Jed is pretty close to him so to say that we haven't earned the right or deserve the right for these guys to talk to our team is BS. He might not be a traitor but that doesn't mean I have to like him pumping up the OPPOSING TEAM.
