49ers owe San Franciscans more than half a million dollars

May 28, 2009 at 7:19 AM--


As we reported about a month ago, the city controller contends the 49ers owe San Franciscans more than half a million bucks in miscalculated parking fees at Candlestick Park - $569,041 to be exact.

Yet despite the official report released Wednesday, the team continues to say the argument is nonsense.

The city contends that parking rent must be paid based on sold parking spaces, not on the size of the 7,000-space city lot. Invariably, parking pass holders don't show and then other fans pay to use those spots, but the team isn't giving the city a cut of that extra money, said Rich Hillis, deputy director at the Recreation and Park Department.

"It's not a gift to the 49ers. They sold parking," Hillis said. "They don't refund the money, they keep it. Whether people show up or not, they have to pay the appropriate tax and the appropriate lease payment."

The team called that argument "simply wrong."

"The city is not entitled to rent for prepaid cars that park in other parking areas, or that do not park there at all," Larry MacNeil, the team's chief financial officer, wrote to the auditor.

So, anyone want to build a new stadium together?

Maybe San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is just really unlucky. Or perhaps he is very lucky by defying the odds. I suppose it depends on your perspective. The NFL says a jointly appointed independent administrator uses a computer program to randomly select players before each game to undergo PED testing. Samuel continues to wonder how "random" the selection process is. The second-year receiver has appeared in four games this season and says he has now been "randomly" selected to undergo PED testing a total of six times. Here is his most recent tweet on the

49ers vs. Saints: Studs and Duds from San Francisco's loss to New Orleans

By Chris Wilson
Nov 17, 2020

After jumping out to a 10-point lead and knocking QB Drew Brees out of the game, the 49ers went "No Gas, All Brakes" in their 27-13 loss to the Saints. The San Francisco 49ers had an opportunity to stun the New Orleans Saints after jumping out to a quick lead, but a combination of turnovers, a lackluster offensive performance, and abysmal special teams play allowed the Saints to cruise to an easy victory over a mostly disinterested Niners team and coaching staff. Head coach Kyle Shanahan reached his Promised Land -- the team's annual bye week --
