Protest strategy if we don't land Harbaugh

wtf u guys

york is doing a hell lot hes offering to pay him more than at least 60% of the nfl coaches and hes never coached in nfl before and offering him a lot of power more than any coach in nfl maybe

if he doesnt come here its not because of york but because he didnt want to come here
Let's wait and see whether Harbaugh signs with Miami first. And if he does for how much? Then talk about we can talk about protesting.

We should all feel like idiots for believing him.

Dude...it doesn't mean that he will make Harbaugh, a guy who has never coached in NFL, highest paid coach in NFL.

Only thing that will really work is if fans stop buying tickets. Then there are blackouts so TV money goes down, team sales go down, etc. Anything else won't really work...

God I hate the Yorks

Oh, really? Is there another meaning for "money is no object" I wasn't aware of?

Stop banging that head, you need those brain cells.

It's a figure of speech.

Yeah, I know, and it usually implies "money ain't going to be what dictates this situation".

Dude IMHO, our fanbase is really showing it's colors.... and you wonder why 49er fans are hated. There are franchises out there that haven't won anything and people are acting as if this, tonight, is the end of the world... literally. You would think someone broke into their homes and robbed them or the 49ers levied a tax simply for using the word "49er Fan" in posts here. I've never seen anything like the level of gross hyperbole I've seen tonight EVER as a 49er fan.

Unprecedented.

For me, it's not so much about Harbaugh as it is about the message the Yorks are sending.

Honestly, we can probably get similar results with other head coaches. But in the organization's eyes... Harbaugh was the best candidate for the job. If they feel he's the best candidate for the job and the team is COMMITTED to winning a Super Bowl, they'll go after Harbaugh with force.

Yes, it's absurd to pay a rookie Head Coach $8M when he hasn't even held a major coaching position in the NFL. It's just that we are so disheartened by the lack of COMMITMENT from ownership. It's more that we want to see action in order to believe the owners want to win.

The Yorks have been criticized for not caring about winning. They've been known as cheapskates and for trying to go for the easy-fix. I'm not saying they should throw $8M out there. But I'll be upset if they don't at least try to raise their offer.

If they say to Harbaugh, "We really want you for $6M, but that's our final offer. We don't think you are $2M better than some of the other guys out there, who are all very good coaches as well..."... I would respect that. They made a modest offer to Harbaugh, from what I hear. $4.5M is a reasonable and fair offer. But it's not the type of force, power, and commitment to winning you'd like to see. If Eddie DeBartolo wanted a Head Coach, he'd up the bid to a certain point.

We'll see. I'll just be disappointed if they just give up easily.

"And while several people close to Harbaugh have advised him against going to the 49ers because of their front-office structure, he has received more favorable reports on Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland."

and it gets better....

"However, sources close to McDaniels think is virtually certain he would not go to the 49ers given their current front office strucure and would be far more likely to wind up with the Falcons as their offensive coordinator should Mike Mularkey land as a head coach elsewhere."

Source Article

As I stated in my previous post, our front office is so awesome. McDaniels would rather be an offensive coordinator than be our head coach.

Trust me, one doesn't need brain cells while posting in NT.

When you say money is no object, it doesn't mean you act retarded and pay $100 for somethin' that's worth only $50. Only an idiot will do that.

I don't agree with protesting but I agree with the bolded. Don't say "money is no object", then make it apparent that you want Harbaugh only to offer him less money than a COLLEGE. A COLLEGE!

Give him $5.5-$6M at least. This guy is the hottest potential NFL coach on the planet and they low-ball him after making it apparent that he is the first and only choice? Ridiculous.
