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?

Joe Staley: Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance

By Marc Adams
Oct 12

Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle, Joe Staley, went on KNBR Radio on Monday to discuss the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As expected, the conversation went to the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, including who Staley believed would be under center in two weeks when the 49ers play the Indianapolis Colts. "I think he made his decision before the season even started," Staley said on the Papa & Lund show. "If Jimmy's healthy, he's going to be our quarterback this year. They want to use it as a red-shirt year, almost, for Trey this season. I was encouraged." That seemed to be the plan in the offseason, to have Lance sit and learn. Even after the game on Sunday, Kyle Shanahan continued to hold his ground that

John Lynch says 49ers believe in Brandon Aiyuk but need more 'urgency' from receiver

By Rohan Chakravarthi

Brandon Aiyuk has been the talk amongst 49ers fans after his slow start to the season. He has only caught eight passes for 90 yards over the team's first six games, despite breaking out as a rookie, having caught 60 passes for 748 yards and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three of those categories in 2020. Last week, John Lynch spoke about his second-year receiver and stated that Aiyuk "hasn't made the strides [the 49ers] have expected him to," sparking a controversy about whether the team's been misusing him, or if there's really something different about Aiyuk. Still, Lynch, who spoke with NBC's Matt Maiocco, has given his utmost confidence in the 25th
