We'd probably only get Mr. Irrelevent for the lot.
I'll add this (and I know I'm a bit older than the average grade school fan).
Has anyone here ever heard of the Irsay or Bidwell families? Yes, they are NFL
owners who for years couldn't field a competitive team. Let's see I think there teams are the Colts and the Cardinals respectively. Anyone remember the Rooney teams of the 60s? Didn't think so, those teams were the Steelers. Anyone remember the Eagles pre-Jeffrey Lurie? How about Tom Benson who wanted to move his team out New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Those teams have the same owners, and guess what they are doing pretty well.
Just a stroll down memory lane for some of us, and ancient history that they don't teach anymore for most of you.
So, what you are telling us emotionally distraught, knee-jerk, over-reacting fanatics is that success in the NFL doesn't have as much to do with ownership as we think?
That changes in ownership, coaches and players does not equal success and the Yorks selling the team would only mean more drastic change?
That it is not science or a great intuition that makes winners, but finding the right combination of coaches, players and front office people to make it work?
That "going forward" we fans can only hang on to the hope that this ever-changing organism known as the 49ers hits a lucky streak and we are able to win for a few years in-between the long and painful dry spells?
The painful truth is, we pretty much know that. But it doesn't make us feel as good as yelling about getting new owners/coaches/players/GMs.
So yell, b***h, moan and complain we must!!
FIRE THE YORKS!!!!
