I dont know why all you guys are so happy, it's not like you're gonna see any of that saved money.....what a joke.


The more I read the contract the more pissed off I get. Is this really the way to treat a player like Gore....the dude puts his body on the line and is on this s**tty team and this is how we pay him??? Give me a break. He would of been better off not getting a deal and just hitting the FA market next year. I hate this cheap ass orginazation....

So would rather have them pay a RB who is no longer productive. Its not about being cheap, its about being smart with your money.

This just shows Gore is a 49er thru and thru. He would rather play for his money then just have it handed to him. That alone should have you pumped. This guy is going to play hard this year.

I'm pumped for his love for the game, but it's a stupid move.

Your a big Gore fan right? We'll are you going to be there to help him get out of bed when he's 45? Are you really even gonna give a s**t about him when someone like Hunter comes along in a year or two? I'm in the camp that players should do what's in their best interest, because at the end of the day teams done really care about you, only your prodcution (see. Jerry Rice, Joe Montana).

IMO, the team just royally screwed Gore and all you guys are happy as if it makes any material diffrence that the Yorks saved a buck. I guess Jed will be a little more comfortable order a 500 dollar bottle of wine instead of that cheap 300 dollar stuff....

Gore was happy enough with it to sign it. It is his bussines. Why get so upset?
he still gets guaranteed money if he's injured, so that's good. If he breaks his body for the team he should still get compensated, and it sounds like he will. If he just loses his game, then he doesn't get the money. Kind of cruel.

I liked the contract before, and I figured there would be lots of incentives and stuff. I like it more for the 49ers and less for Frank Gore now. I'm surprised how many "incentives" and loopholes and stuff there are; surprised Rosenhaus would agree to it. But I think it does show that Gore wanted to be a Niner for life, and the team got a very friendly deal to make that happen. If Gore stays healthy and productive, everyone wins big time.

Because IMO, he should be rewarded for his dedication to the team and what he has brought to the niners.

In addition, thats not even a fair contract. At least give him something fair.

Gore seems happy with the deal. So WTF? He didn't have to sign it if he didn't like it. He's already made about $20 million and stands to make another $10-20 more depending on performance. I fail to see ANY reason to b***h, other than enjoyment.

He already has been rewarded by getting paid millions. Also the redid his rookie contract early and gave him a raise. And what has he really brought to the niners, he has never led the team a winning a season.

It must be fair to him if he signed it.

Contracts are all about what you did, not what you will do unless you are a rookie or a 32 year-old vet.

Gore has 2 or 3 years at the humph of his career which means 2011-2013 should be 4+ average yards per carry years. His contract is a very "fair" deal for both sides. What will be the most interesting situation will be when he is in his 3rd year of the contract and still within a reasonable age to be a contributor.

Personally, if Hunter show some really good things this year, we trade Gore prior to his contract year.

Gore put his signature on the dotted line. I'm sure Rosenhaus explained the entire contract to him. So if he was willing to sign it, then it's on him. Simple as that.

I dont know about that.

If Gore isn't productive, he loses.

If Gore is productive enough that they want to keep the next 2-3 years, then he was seriously underpaid.

Some call this smart, I just think it's cheap and disrespectful. The team has more than enough cap space to bare some of the burden of risk.

Mark this post, Gore will not be on this team by his 30th Bday.

There is nothing fair about his deal. Its a what have you done for me lately contract.

That's fine if you want to take the stance that all that matters is what's good for the Yorks, but dont come crying the next time a player holds out because he wants better for himself. Moreover, I dont want to hear any more b******t speeches (from posters, not you personally) about team loyalty. Honestly, what does that get you? Nothing.

Mark this post, Gore will not be on this team by his 30th Bday.

If he stays healthy and productive, he will be helping the team be successful, and will get the maximum out of his contract.

Not sure how you can see that as anything but a win-win, in that scenario.

I definitely hear you that the deal is not very good for Gore. I think including the salary from this year as guaranteed money is sneaky s**t; that doesn't stay true to the idea of an "extension." But even if he suffers a horrible injury, he is still guaranteed to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 or 9 million. As much as I love Gore and wanted to take care of him, realistically, what could a RB with his age and injury history expect? He would not get anywhere close to that on the open market. He wasn't going to get a deal at all without some protections for the team.

The NFL is a cold dog eat dog business. There is no team loyalty, the minute your play drops your done.
