As long as they're putting butts in seats they really don't care what we few in the Webzone think. And I'll bet that MOST don't even buy enough 49er's tickets to make a difference.
Keep in mind that this is a LARGE city (San Francisco) and the Bay area and there are a large number of businesses who buys season tickets as well a mezzanine areas (suites) for their employees and clients. This alone puts a lot of fannies in the seats albeit that most are not 49er's fans.
Also this is Jed Yorks 2nd year (if I'm right) and if the mom and pop did indeed gave him control, let's hope that he listens to uncle D and make things right.
Uncle D cared about having a winning football franchise and let's hope that some of that rubs off.
Quote from an article I read at SFGATE : "DeBartolo succeeded in a difficult business, he said, because "I had more than my share of street sense. It's important that you get bloodied a little bit. You have to take your lumps, then go right back
Does York have street sense?
"He's getting it," DeBartolo said. "This is something new to him." Unquote.
Singletary was his first choice and just like MOST of us, was fooled when Mike took them on a winning streak at the end of Mike Nolan's era. Let's see what happens next.
