I am so sick and tired of Mike Florio articles being posted here. Hey mods, why don't you just stop posting this 40er-hater yellow journalist's stories?
In his latest piece of tripe, this piece of refuse from the National Enquirer school of yellow journalismcontinues to harp on Jim Harbaugh's contract. He writes that numerous UNNAMED sources (which he then indicates are accurate sources even though he refuses to produce a single name of anyone who supposedly said what he claims to be true) have confirmed that Harbaugh wants to be paid like a Super Bowl winning coach, even though Harbaugh has clearly (not obtusely, like Florio writes) said that he has never told the front office that he wants to be paid that way, nor has he ever said he wants to be the highest paid coach in the NFL.
Florio writes that if that were true then Harbaugh would already be signed. He suggests that his (Florio's) reason is the only reason why Harbaugh has not signed the contract that was offered to him last year. What nonsense!
As one of the more intelligent commenters on Florio's article states, there are many possible reasons for Harbugh not signing a contract yet.
Considering Florio's decided lack of credibility as a sportswriter, and also taking into account his history as a 49er hater, I choose to believe Jim Harbaugh's clear statements concerning his contract situation rather than Florio's unsupported statements that are clearly designed to foment agitation and discontent among the 49er faithful.
I would lay money that Harbaugh will be signed to a long-term extension and new contract well before his current contract expires. I suspect Harbaugh will wait until next year's off-season, just to avoid any distraction from his dedicated objective to win the Super Bowl.
Florio needs to find some other line of work; perhaps at Starbucks or maybe serving food at McDonald's. What a creep!
Mods - seriously, please stop posting this hack's stories.
