Protest strategy if we don't land Harbaugh

Unlike most of the Harbaugh homers here, I know that there are still several great candidates out there.

Winners, with tons of more experience than Harbaugh. Go figure.

Gruden has turned down offers to stay on TV.

He won't turn down an offer which is substantial enough. Money's no object, right Jed?

Except when you're outbid.
This is getting out of hand. Are the 49ers guaranteed to be contenders with Harbaugh as coach? I don't think anything is a given. If you want to protest if they don't get him, then do what you want to.

Money isn't an object unless a richer owner comes along with unrealistic offers that make no sense.

It is like we are about to buy a new BMW fully loaded for the list price and some dude runs in the dealership and offers way over the value of the car, you go find another car.
you guys are being ridiculous. you don't know s**t about what's going on and you already have sand in your vagina over it.

you want to pay the guy f**king $8 mil a year? sorry, bellicheck doesn't make that! i know harbaugh is the best candidate for us but its hard to argue with jed if he doesn't want to make harbaugh the highest paid coach in the nfl.

now if we're totally low balling him at $4 mil or something fine, protest. but gtfo of here with that if we're being reasonable. i doubt we'll ever know for sure

I think the Dolphins offered him $7 million (or so is claimed). Since he turned it down, there is no competing bid if Jed offers more.

Money's no object, right Jed?

This is the NFL, gotta pay to play.

Seriously. Too much of a knee-jerk reaction even if we don't sign him. Who knows what the details are? You're going to protest because Jason Laf****tfora said we proposed $4.5 million? This guy has been right WHEN? Never.

Both the Matts said that the 49ers were working off of Carroll's contract or are looking to get there. Relax, if we don't sign him it's because Miami is proposing crazy money that we smartly aren't going to match. Anything over $7/year for a first time head coach is absolutely ridiculous.

Who cares if the YORKS are paying him 7 million dollars for Harbaugh's services. ITS NOT LIKE WE PAY.

It doesn't matter if WE'RE paying or not. Why are you going to make a rookie head coach the highest-paid in the league? It's borderline retarded.

Saying money isn't an object doesn't mean you go out and pay 60k for a base model BMW 5 series. Harbaugh isn't worth 7-8 million a year. He should get paid less that Pete Carroll who had won National Championship and several bowl games AND had decent amount of coaching in the NFL. He def. shouldn't be the highest paid coach in all of NFL. We b***h about rookies gettin' 50 million dollar contracts - this is exactly the same thing.

If Miami wants to pay him that much money, and Harbaugh takes that - then good for him. We didn't lose anything. He is a coach - not Peyton Manning.

Doesn't matter. The opposite extreme of "blind trust" is "blind hate". You can't call them out with facts - they don't matter. You can't talk about what the actual history is, it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is something that will NEVER happen - in that the "Yorks" sell the team. It's just as unrealistic as Bellicheck himself resigning with the Pats at the end of the season and opting to come to San Francisco.
  • Money
  • Power
  • Pride

To really gain the attention, and better yet, change the actions of people in positions such as ownership, I think those 3 are areas which should be targeted.

The money is the probably the easiest to figure out.

Power comes in how they puppet the influence, money, control, hope, belief, and spirit of their audience. And, control over their opponents (other teams).

Pride can clearly be affected by envoking shame. To comparatively point out how they're poorer owners than their comrades, to amplify the disdainful words of hallowed 9er greats, to show how we the loyal fanbase would much rather have another Owner(ship team) come and take show the Yorks how it's done.

Clearly, much of this has been talked about many times before with many different words. But, that stands to show how rightful they are to say.

Again, I'm still cognisant Jed could prove that money is not the determining factor it's again, seeming to now be, and that we land a head coach that ends up being good for the team. This is simply seeming like yet another installment of the same set of happenings we've all seen happen too many times. And, quite frankly, I'm kind of tired of it.
Another dumb thread

I don't give a rat's ass how much we pay Harbaugh. If he is seriously the coach who will lead us to victories, I couldn't give a s**t how much we pay him. I'd rather win and make the playoffs than save a few nickles and dimes here and there. Us, loyal fans of the 49ers deserve better.

Real easy conclusion when it's not your money. LOL. I LOVE NT!!!

How do you know he's going to "lead us to victories?" How many games has he coached at the NFL level? Oh, that's right, none. It DOES matter how much the 49ers pay him. It's not worth getting strong-armed into making a first time coach the highest paid in the league just because someone else wants them. There are plenty of other PROVEN coaches available.
