49ers accuse Jets of Tampering *Updated*

Why would the Niners make this kind of accusation if there was no proof of the Jets tampering? I mean, why the Jets; why not the Rams or the Bears? In short, why would we choose the Jets to pick on?

Any ideas?

I poised the same question in another thread as well. If you remember before we knew it was the Jets, everyone thought it was Jerry Jones who tampered after Deion made the statement that there were two teams willing to pay Crabtree what he wants. My reasoning at the time was there has to be some solid evidence pointing to the Jets otherwise why would the San Fran front office bring up tampering charges and risk embarrassement if it is proven to be not true.

Well the Jets have been accused of tampering with a patriots receiver and there was talk of Brandon Marshall. So it is possible if we were just throwing accusations around that the jets would be a good target since this is the third accusation of tampering, they will get in the last 6 months.

Ummm, you don't just throw an accusation out there with no evidence. Every single accusation, or seriously considered accusation, had at least some believed substance behind it to believe it in the 1st place.

That's about as good an answer as any of the Jets fans have given me. But, this still doesn't say why we would choose them over a team like the Cowboys (who most people were suspicious of).

IMO, the only logical answer is that we have some sort of proof that points to the Jets. Whether its enough, who knows...
According to Clayton on ESPN, the Niners had to present some kind of solid evidence to even get the ball rolling. So the Niners must have had something to hand the NFL to substantiate their claims, or else the NFL wouldn't even be looking into it. The fact that there is an investigation going on means there was enough evidence to warrant the investigation.

won't get swept under the rug. If anything Crabtree will disclose more information to put the nail in the coffin for the Jets. He gets his money and the niners get another draft pick potentially improving the chances of seeing the big game. Win win situation for Crabtree and the 49ers.

Don't forget about the potential for "Deions team #2", there may still be one more culprit who we couldn't figure out.

Packers filed tampering charges against the vikings in regards to brett favre. They had evidence and submitted it to the league.

right here

However, Favre was traded to the Jets and nothing ever came about with those charges. Im trying to find an article that the nfl did take action against either the Packers or Vikings, but I cant find anything
Right here

http://m.espn.go.com/wireless/story?storyId=3501459

this should have resulted in a fine or something

"The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday that according to a source, Favre continued to use a Packers-issued cell phone after his retirement announcement -- and that a team check of phone records showed repeated calls to Vikings coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell."

maybe the charges were dropped or the evidence wasn't sufficient enough. either way I think that Crabtree would disclose the information on the JETS and any other team that possibly tampered with him in a way to prove his loyalty to the team

There was less evidence against us and we got f**ked over

I agree, the most likely answer is that we have some evidence.

But I still think the jets are an easier target for the tampering charges than the cowboys, there have been no accusations of tampering towards the cowboys, most of it was just speculation that Jerry Jones has no problem overpaying players and would love to have a hometown star like crabtree playing for the cowboys.

Whereas the jets even if you couldn't produce any concrete evidence the fact that they have been accused 2 times already is a pretty big indicator they are up to something. Where there is smoke, there is fire.

That's because the NFL hates the 49ers
This place would most likely erupt if the Cowboys were proven guilty of tampering and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.
