Rebuilt Retool

49er spring practices are over and there’s six weeks left until Training Camp opens and puts an end to this disastrous 2015 offseason. Still plenty of time left for more disasters, though, so stay tuned.

It will be interesting to see what happens in Philadelphia this year. Both Jim Harbaugh and Chip Kelly were highly touted college coaches when they came into the NFL. Each has enjoyed success, Harbaugh more so than Kelly, and after a couple years in the league, each crossed swords with their GM. San Francisco eventually canned the coach and kept the GM. The Eagles have done the opposite — keeping the coach and marginalizing the GM. Which franchise made the best choice? We’ll see this year.

The 49ers have moved Alex Boone from RG to LG, to better facilitate him sliding over into LT Joe Staley’s spot, should Staley get injured. Marcus Martin, drafted last year as a center, is currently playing RG. Erik Pears, the worst guard in the league last year, is playing out at RT. Not exactly Murderers Row.

It could also be that moving Boone to left guard better protects Colin Kaepernick‘s blind side. Which is good, since his attention is likely to be quite often focused on the right side leakage.

The team did make it through the practices without any injuries, which is already an improvement on last year. Let’s face it, good health for us and bad health for everybody else in the division is about the only way this team can be competitive this year.

Looking at the draft and the barely warm bodies Trent Baalke has dragged in this year, it’s hard not to draw one of two conclusions: either Baalke is an idiot, or he’s thrown in the towel for this year, despite his “retooling” blather from early in the offseason. It’s possible, I suppose, that he’s both. But, giving him the benefit of the doubt for the moment, it looks like he’s pointing towards the next two years as a complete roster rebuild.

Rebuilding the team’s championship mentality and confidence is a whole other chore. For that, we’ll need a good HC. And getting one to come here might prove more difficult than rebuilding the roster. The 49er FO would need to rebuild its shattered reputation, and that is not going to be easy.

    What a contrast between the Niners and the Warriors. Great coach in Steve Kerr, over here well we’ll see. I had really forgotten completely what it’s like to root for a champion. May be quite awhile for a repeat unless Ws repeat as I don’t follow baseball anymore.

    Back to the chain gang.

    Rumor Kaep to Jets for 3-4 DE Wilkerson plus a 1st and mid round pick

  3. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Kap to Jets would put a bullet in the pink ponies for sure. Join the real world we’ve been enjoying for the past year. Talk about a rebuild = yikes Gabbert.

    Have to think that maybe the Eagles would be better off. Balkey has his grand plan you know

    Unca_chuck says:

    “Didn’t hear you guys bitching when Kappy took us to the Super Bowl.”

    Chuck, please just stop! All your thoughts are just dumb and it amazes all of us that you actually have people who follow you and they think they’re having an intelligent conversation.

    Please listen carefully! No one knew Kaepernick just like when Steve Young would sub for Montana. After a few games and much needed game tapes and Kaepernick’s little Dog and Pony show was over. See with Elite Quarterbacks even if you have massive game tapes on them they’ll burn you no matter what you throw at them, you blitz or you don’t blitz they’ll carve you up like a surgeon. Kaps one trick “Jimmy Rayes Razzle Dazzle” type QB was figured out rather quickly and he was exposed as just a “Flash In The Pan”. I know mindless people like you still went ga –ga over him and supported his rather large ego that made it seem as if he won four Super Bowls but in reality he didn’t win Sh*t!

    Instead of putting his concerns into winning the Super Bowl he was too bust thinking about his Tattoo appointment he had the day after the loss. He disappeared in the game and then tried coming back in the end but it was too late, he already laid a big, fat, egg! Sorry winners never disappear on that stage and why I need to explain this to a clown like you is a mystery to all.

    He cost us our first lost in the Super Bowl and tarnished our great record forever. His me, me, me, it’s all about me inflated ego embarrassed us on the biggest stage where we once made legendary moments.

    Ding, Ding, class has ended again do you ever get tired of being tardy and having you’re a** handed to you?

    Let me guess V doesn’t like Kaepernick and Chuck does.

    From M Maiocco:

    Do you see any chance the Niners trade Kap next year? (Chris Standart)

    No, and here’s why: If the 49ers aren’t going to be willing to pay Colin Kaepernick at his scheduled contract for next year, I don’t see another team stepping in and saying, “Well, the 49ers don’t want him at that price and they know him very well, but we’ll go ahead and do it.”

    As things now stand, Kaepernick is scheduled to make $14.3 million in 2016. Offensive coordinator Geep Chryst likes Kaepernick a lot. Kaepernick is going to get every benefit of the doubt with the 49ers because there is genuine appreciation for how hard he works and how seriously he takes his job. Plus, the 49ers do not have anyone on the roster that is viewed as potentially a better option.

    I doubt they’ll move on from Kaepernick unless something dramatic happens. If the 49ers do not believe he’s worth his scheduled salary, they’ll probably first try to get him to accept a pay reduction before releasing him. But with the price of QBs these days, I don’t envision the 49ers moving on from a player who has his kind of skills. –Matt M.

  6. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Leonard Williams fell to them as BPA. They already had Mohamed Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson. Hope that rumor is true. Then we see what we have in Gabbert.

    So next year it is rivers or Manning with Gabbert or draft pick the heir apparent.

    Don’t worry fans Niners are ‘working on it’:


    Has anything so far with the Niners offseason programs made you gain any optimism for the upcoming season? (Chris Schmidbauer)

    Fans of the 49ers should feel good about all their concerns of the past are being addressed.

    The 49ers worked daily on the mechanics of getting the play called and breaking the huddle with more than 20 seconds remaining on the play clock.

    They’ve worked on their short-passing game with Kaepernick implementing more screens and swing passes into the offensive plan.

    They want Vernon Davis to return to being a factor on offense. They appear to be placing a lot of emphasis on developing their young players.

    The defense is almost certain to do more blitzing. Discipline and accountability – on and off the field – have been areas of focus for the organization, too”.

    Thanks Matt, I feel better now. Too bad ‘accountability’ only apples to players not York

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Maiocco’s being the good company man while playing to the bozo crowd that bitched about the way Harbaugh & Fangio won games. This year those boys will be able to bitch about the way we lose games.

  9. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Great, we get to see more of Vernon “Stone Hands” Davis.

  10. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    You want a TE who can catch balls thrown to him? You should have gotten Jimmy Graham. Oh wait, the Seahawks did.

  11. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, what does that moron Maiocco Know! We over here at the Outsider have it all figured out.

  12. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    MM’s not paid to do analysis. He’s paid to have access to 49er facilities and employees and report on what he saw and what the employees said. Should he go negative on them, he will lose part of that access. It’s just not in his employer’s or his best interests.

  13. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Why would you dig something out from the past and talk about it?

    “Didn’t hear you guys bitching when Kappy took us to the Super Bowl.”

    Because Chuckles doesn’t think his shit stinks and he’s the biggest idiot hypocrite on any blog. Only Chuckles can bring up the past.

  14. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    his is what I use to tell Unca_chuck about Kevin Lynch. No matter what transpired he always painted a rosy colored picture. This behavior while only benefiting the York’s did the fans a true injustice. We don’t need more Master Puppeteers, we need leaders that are going to tell fans the truth regardless of hurting their feelings or being concerned about their ratings.

    Chuck complained about Kevin all the time then put on an act as if he was going to be different. It was hilarious how he acted as if he was going to create a manly blog but just like Kevin his true spineless nature came out and he became irreverent very quickly. Some people like Chuck don’t believe but people respect the truth, they look for leadership in our programmed society. No legacy is so rich as honesty, that’s why every time Chuck opens his mouth I’m there to call him out. As Lincoln once said, “Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.” Or “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all the people all the time.”

    Truth is such a rare thing, it is delighted to tell it. ~ Emily Dickinson.

    See everyone knows who ever our Owner is, regardless who’s our Head Coach and if the first female QB happens to be the 49ers new Quarterback, one thing for sure it’s guaranteed that you’ll find Chuck there waving pom poms no matter what. There are plenty of sites out there reporting what the York’s want them to report, the only respected ones are those who are different and report the truth and that’s very rare.

  15. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    God forbid anything remotely positive is spoken of by anyone anywhere. That must be quelled at all costs. I mean that 25th ranked offense was awesome!!!!! Who needs a new offense when the old one was so, so, so … shitty.

    Chuck chuck chuck chuck chuck. I must haunt you every waking moments. Get a grip guys.

  16. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    I read today that Tomsula is cutting classroom sessions because players have a short attention span.

    So, did York say he wanted teachers or baby sitters?

    Does everybody get yellow and red stress cards?

    Did Lombardi have this problem?

    I hope they can pay attention past the first quarter when the season starts.

  17. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    See Chuck you need to play the wait and see game, intelligent fans will tell you we’re doomed and the seasons going in the shitter. Might as well put the season in Auto Pilot and throw in the towel because this shit is over and I aint playin ni…a! Try n tell Pinky that we have a shot at the Super Bowl. See I rather talk about this upcoming season in a comical sense rather than just another generic guy like yourself mouthing off the same words every year,…”Chuck has spirit yes he do, I think we’re going to the Super Bowl how about you?”

    I wonder what Pinky would say if you told him we were going to the Super Bowl every year.

    “Shut the fu… up chuck , did you say… Ohhh, ni**a! I’ll… oh, shit! Say something! Say somethang again.. Say something else, ni**a! and this sh*t is over!!!

    Do you haunt us Chuck? Hell yeah just knowing that there’s guppies like you in the world and you’re actually voting??? That scares the hell out of me!!!! LOL!!!!!

    Looked at ganggreennation.Com and in the comments it was John Clayton that suggested the trade. If this trade were to happen that 1st would have to be in it.

    Interesting approach.

    For those that may not have seen it…..

  21. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    What are the similarities between the Walsh era Niners and the current NBA Champs?

    (taken in part from anonymous blogger on CSN):

    Both teams had:

    1) an overall vision of a particular type of scheme,

    2) GMs who drafted players perfect for that scheme,

    3) a coach who knew how to keep the players focused on each step toward the goal,

    4) a functional, effective Front Office

    5) and both had owners who would do what ever it took to win.

    At best the current Niners have 70% of this formula, maybe far less?

  22. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Do you have a point, Phil or are you waffling to the other side?

    V I’ve never met someone who spends so much time blogging about something he doesn’t want to blog about. Are you allowed to possess sharp objects?

  23. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Phil, I would put it under 50% for sure. Owners who are faced with critical decisions especially one as a Head Coach hiring would never just quickly hire someone to fill a void because he has no time to go through an evaluation process. You then look at Kaepernick, where’s his competition? Just like the Alex Smith case when selfish, spoiled, egotistical, power trip owners like the York’s are in control their only goal is to do it their way and try and prove smart people wrong. When people don’t put winning first and do what’s best for the team they’ll be no success.

    The only good news for people like the York’s is parity. If there wasn’t parity in the NFL the York’s in an Eddie/Jerry era would be at the bottom of a division ever year. When expectations are high and people are forced to play the sport at its highest level it really puts the spot light on losers like the York’s. With parity they’re allowed to just blend in and do the minimum every year and fill the stadium.

    You take parity now in the NBA. Sorry but the Golden State Warriors are a good team but they aren’t even in the same league as the Lakers and Celtics of both era’s. Bulls, Spurs, Rockets they would’ve murdered that Warriors team. With parity we have now made it easy to win a Championship instead of setting the bar high and forcing people to play at its highest level. Liberals and their “It’s just not fair” or “Everyone’s a winner” stomach turning, gutless approach to life has again ruined anything good left in America.

    Chuck, I don’t want to blog about something? I love telling the truth regarding any topic and exposing people like you who would get in a Jim Jones Kool-Aid line without thinking twice about it.

  24. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    That’s why you repeat everything 1,000,000 times. Because you have nothing to say. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

  25. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    What do we DO, V? You complain about every sport out there. Don’t F*(&^ing watch basketball or football since it disappoints you so much.

    Again, you post endlessly about the good old days. But what happened in the good old days that you miss? Teams like the 49ers and Dallas spending their way to championships?

    All this parity shit you complain about was instituted BECAUSE of Eddie and Jerry and their free-spending ways. All the revenue sharing that Rozelle instituted was directly due to the fact that there was a huge disparity between the mom-and-pop teams like the 49ers and Packers back in the day, and teams like the Giants that had deeper pockets. It was a way to keep the NFL viable in smaller markets.

    I suppose you’d like to play it like Steinbrenner and just have the same team throwing gobs of money at players so they can stack their teams and win all the time. Rainbow pony land in other words.

  26. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Good. We’re doomed. Shut the f-u-c-k up about it already. We get it.

    All you do is bitch about the team. Bitch about the game. Bitch about me. I guess you think being a bitch helps. No. it makes you an incessant whining bitch.

    Go f-u-c-k yourself. You are a total waste of time and effort.

    Write some more of those letters to the green.

  27. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Also I don’t make fun of spelling. That’s Bullitt’s realm. That’s a typo, BTW, you brain dead f-u-c-k.

  28. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Here are 2 questions you need to ask yourself every morning, v.

    Why did Eddie have to sell the team?

    Why did Tagliabue institute the salary cap?

  29. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Actually, it isn’t misspelled. Hyuk! Funny, I have a some lurkers who are too scared to post on my site.

  30. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yes V agree smart owners hire smart football people then get out of the way. Eddie certainly did tho obviously he was involved with the players and their families.

    York is not at that point obviously. I was interested to hear what others here thought of the Niners in regards to the points I quoted above comparing the Eddie/Walsh era Niners and the current NBA Champs = how do the 2015 Niners rate?

    We will know more as next season unfolds for sure. A report card is coming for the GM and the coaches. Players, do they fit the current scheme? Going to find that out too.

    Owner willing to do whatever to win? Obviously not. So 70% of the total picture is too high for me.

  31. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NN has good article on possible trade reasons for CK. This is the year and hinges on what is offered. That FA list is really impressive for next year.

    Does TB risk an injury or further regression. The O scheme will be an improved version of last years. All up to CK to prove he is the franchise QB for this team the next 5 to 10 years.

    Doing it now with a package that includes a Dareus or Wilkerson plus a 1st or 2nd and mid round picks is acceptable to me. Both teams get significant payoff this year. No risk on harming the CK trade value.

    If FO and TB are willing to pay for Rivers or Manning then seriously make the trade now. Jared Goff may be a good QB pick. Get a new HC and OC that will fix the O side. O brings in more dollars than D. Now is the time to right the ship.

    FO needs to be castrated in the media otherwise.

  32. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Manning? He will not come here. Unless he gets free reign to run the offense his way. Possible. But getting manning would set the franchise back about 7 years. Bad idea. Let’s sigh a 39 year old guy who will want $30 mill per or whatever the fcck.

    The only way I’d sign Rivers is on a make/good deal. Right. Not gonna happen. At least play around in the realm of reality, Tom.

  33. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Eddie didn’t get out of the way, Phil. He drove Bill Walsh out of coaching the NFL.

    And v before you start, just shut the fcck up already. Eddie was a great owner who did some stupid shit. Dogging Walsh and getting caught trying to buy a liquor license are 2 of his big screw ups.

    But poor little candy-ass thinks Eddie did no wrong. It was the FBIs fault for setting up the sting in the first place. It was Bills fault for getting angry at eddies rants. Per John McVay, Eddie fired Bill 8 times over the years.

  34. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck’s most favorite owner – York (any of them)

    Chuck’s least favorite owner – Eddie D.

    What else can be said?

  35. winderNo Gravatar says:


  36. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    No doubt, you scold you, that Eddie got in Bill’s way and he would have been far wiser not to. But we all know that good owners have boundaries and recognize their lack of expertise in football matters.

    No excuse for York who only fired Harbaugh once and wasn’t smart enough to relent another 7 times. That alone damns the ownership score to zero if the criteria is “doing everything to win’.

    So I think V has it right overall = less than 50% as good as they need to be to win a championship.

    York indeed.

    Bolinas99 said the following on another blog and it is spot on

    “Point being: these are complex problems and the one person who can do the most to fix as many of them in the shortest amount of time is the owner. And in our case, our owner was being treated like he had Ebola by the NFL coaching community. Remember the whole circus of our coaching search earlier this year? Every top (and even mediocre) coaching candidate didn’t want anything to do with the 49ers front office. Adam Gase and Lane Kiffin are just a couple, but we were rejected by a large number of credible coaches before we settled on pretty much whomever we could get (Tomsula’s old buddies).

    Look at what happened to the Golden State Warriors after a new, competent owner (Lacob) took over. He made some major changes along with some risky moves (i.e. Monta Ellis), but made sure he surrounded himself with proven basketball experts and didn’t act like a spoiled teenager whose mom just handed him his first job.”

St Jim is God.” Any remotely middling article about the team is met with derision. All the talk of discontent under Harbaugh is thoroughly ignored. The lot of you are hoping the team sucks so you can CROW about being so cool so you can look back and say “I told you so.” When that becomes bigger than being a fan, well, hello chickenshits.

    I’ve been a Warriors fan since the Rick Barry/Nate Thurmond/Franklin Mieuli days. Was I pissed when Cohan and co. screwed the team repeatedly? Sure. Did I hope for them to suck? No. As a fan you are stuck with what you got. I’ve moved all over the country but never traded allegiance for any of my teams. Through think or thin.

    It was a ‘bog’ alright.

    Niners have no stable structure at the top and never will, as ex-fan Spitwad says, as long as Yorks are grinding this puppy.

    But you are welcome to yer dreams

    Eddie, that beast…

  57. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    “When this team goes 11-5 and you guys are holding your dicks,”

    At least us guys have a dick to hold. Chuckles wishes he still had his to hold. Too bad about his incident with a knothole and a squirrel. That’s why he’s called oneball. LMAO!

  58. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    About time the Hawk fans learns some humility. What an insufferable bunch yacking about winning their next SB. If the Niners can’t do it the gods of the pigskin will arrange an INT on their last O play.

    Humility, try some.

  59. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Right, Phil. In delusional land, Greg Cosell throws out his credibility as a nationally respected football analyst because he gets placated by the team? Wow. Is he really that easy to buy off? What a hack. His uncle must be spinning madly in his grave.

    You picked the right week to not quit sniffing glue.

  60. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    LOL Bullit. Yep gives new meaning to “One ball in the side pocket”.

    Sometimes you have to play with the kid

  61. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Clever, for a 5 year old.

    What did you think of the Cosell article, Bullit?

    Do you subscribe to the theory that Cosell can be bought off with a dinner and a hand job?

  62. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck, I understand that if anyone says a negative thing about anything in your whacky world you consider it whining but the flip side of that coin is your so gullible that the very so-called criminals that you complain about are allowed to pull off their crimes largely in part of your silence and acceptance.

    Teams spending their ways to Championships? It so happens that your team did that and only Clowns like you would complain when someone would do all they could to win. See you sit there in your backwards world marveling at those who do nothing and criticizing those who do everything. Your problem is you wear rosy colored glasses and simply can’t see that allowing people to spend freely builds the best teams and brings out the best competition. Those like the York’s who are merely here to make money and have no real urgency to win are allowed to exist at the very bottom because of fans like you who don’t hold anyone accountable for anything.

    Chuck, answers to your Questions:

    Why did Eddie have to sell the team? He was force to because of Liberals like you were crying foul and he was merely used as an example by Tagliabue. It’s natural for a falling out to happen between Eddie and sister Denise ”The Snake” York to ensue after the scandal. Sadly she took over for gains not wins.

    Why did Tagliabue institute the salary cap? Because of Liberals like you who went around complaining how things weren’t fair and they couldn’t compete with the big boys. Your “Everyone’s a winner and no ones really a los*r” mindless motto ruined the sport forever.

    You think two winners like Eddie and Walsh weren’t going to fight? I’d rather have them two fighting over what they thought was the best way to achieve victory rather than the York’s sitting on their a**. Who hired Walsh? The Janitor?? No matter how you try and twist things it was a strong relationship, described by DeBartolo as a marriage end of story.

    Phil, I seen this before with the York’s with the hiring of Erickson, Nolan and Singletary there’s no winning vision it’s just pull a name out of the hat and he’s our guy. First Seattle made the winning move to hire Carroll, in turn he completely cleaned house then hired great minds to make his vision come true. Then he brought in two or three capable QB’s in order for him to get this critical piece of the winning puzzle in place. Wow what a concept…does these winning moves seem familiar? Surely not in Chuck’s eyes, lol!!!

  63. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, at least I don’t have to give my credit card number out to talk to women.

    You guys put the jerk into circle-jerk.

  64. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah that Cosell he really puts his national credibility on the line flying out on the Niners dime after OTAs and uttering platitudes like “Aldon is really really good”, “Kap is young”, “Bo is huge”, “Tommy is old school”, “Coaches gonna try all kinds of shit”

    Impressive, what a risk taker

  65. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    You discredited Greg Cossell long ago. Just like Grant Cohn.
    When they say something you like all is forgotten.
    Although you try you can’t have it both ways.
    Again you prove you have no principles nor a shred of integrity.
    That’s why you are a clown troll.

  66. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    God, the idiots have descended. V you are a pussy on crime? Figures. Next you’ll want my gun. And ohh, that lauguage! My stars!!! Candy-ass. “Oooh, white collar crime is fine! Let Wall St rape my pension! BOHICA!!”

    It was the other owners complaining you f-u-c-k-i-n-g dimwit. You think the fans matter to them? Here’s your sign, dumbass. There’s no hope for you. You are dumber than Bullitt and Phil. And that’s saying something.

    Who hired Harbaugh? Wonder-boy Jed. At least Jed had the sense to shit-can him when he couldn’t get the job done.

    Show me a guy who can’t win the big one and I’ll show you Marty Schottenheimer.

    That who you want? Good luck with that.

    This place is so far from reality, you aren’t even on Earth anymore.

    Wow. Good gig.

    Head Coach Jim Tomsula = Brian Winters, Keith Smart

  73. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Gee, Chuck found a Seahawk fan who’s worried his team is overconfident. I guess that means the rest of the Seahawks fans are laughing their asses off. You’re getting desperate, Chuck. But we’ll be sure to bookmark this page for all the hilarious quotes we can bring up during the season. I’ll put you down for 11-5. Hahahahaha!

  74. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuckles said this

    “Getting information to the players faster and easier is a bad thing?”

    Shortcuts rarely work in the world. Kap is prime example of a guy who can’t grasp the total playbook. That’s why running a no huddle two minute offense is a huge problem for him at the end of the half and end of games. If he could do it they would run it. Instead he needs to waste 15 seconds in a huddle even with time running out.

    99.7% of NFL players attended college. College students attend lectures and take notes for classes that usually are for 60 mins or longer. If you aren’t able to sit in a meeting for 30 mins, pay attention and comprehend what is being said than you can’t function in the white collar world. If you go to another team they will not coddle you with shorter meetings. It’s called being a professional. Leave the cellphones in your locker until your workday is done. You’re there to learn plays and the gameplay, not to tweet to your buddies.

    That is why Chuckles is all for this. Chuckles might be able to pay attention t a 12 min cartoon but those 30 min sitcoms are impossible for him to watch ad God help him if he’s asked to watch “60 Minutes”.

  75. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Very revealing that Chuckles not only goes to Seahag blogs but would actually help them spread their message by putting their post here.

    That goes to Chuckles’ state of mind which is basically scrambled eggs. Chuckles usual hypocrisy is on display for all to see.

  76. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Notice that Chuckles attacks the author Bolinas99 and not the content?

    that’s his style when he has no rebuttal. What Bolinas99 said Chuckles couldn’t counter.

    It obviously set him off last night into a ranting lunatic.

  77. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah I’ve said the same thing. Somewhere else. Oh yeah, i keep forgetting you are too chickenshit to post on my blog. As Bullit. Can’t hang with the adults. You can only hang with the children here. You think ‘students’ in Oklahoma, Texas, Miami, Alabama, and all them schools are getting educations?

    RUBE! I have some beachfront property in Nevada for you.

    Frank Gore is a great football player, but when you score a 6 on the Wonderlich you have to wonder if he has a grade-school education, let alone a high school one.

    You think football is the white collar world? The stupidity in that statement is boundless. You keep flailing around like a blind octopus trying to gotcha me on shit, and you fail every time. You come across as a naive little babe in the woods.

    You give me shit for posting an article from someone on NN and the hold up some anonymous post as gospel. When Cosell posts an article giving the Niners some praise, you go sideways and attack me for posting the article and a comment about it. Funny how that works, hypocrite.

    Whats funny is you constantly harping on how Kappy doesnt grasp the offense yet don;t understand that Harbaugh NEVER ran a no-huddle, but for 2 drives in his 4 years. Did he do it with Alex? No.

    And the post from the seahawk fan was from the Cosell article, idiot. Do I give you shit for cruising gay bars? If that’s the way you swing, go for it. I’m not here to judge your lifestyle. Just you idiotic views on football, and your flip-flop on everything that comes out about the team.

    Why must you waste so much energy berating the team that you are supposedly a fan of? Make like Spit and just let it go. Go. Far away. It’ll do you some good.

  78. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    What do you think of the Cosell article, Bullitt?

    You are just like NoFear who won’t answer the question, which team has more talent, the 2012 team, or this one?

  79. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Frank Gore has been called the smartest running back in the NFL.
    You choose to piss on the greatest running back in 49er history by calling him a dummy? Who gives a phuck what his Wonderlic score is?
    That Wonderlic does not the determining factor in the success of a player.
    It might help if a player is doing poorly and not picking up an offensve or defensive playbook. You are an idiot to suggest that Gore has a learning problem when it comes to football.

    That’s not suprising since that’s what you do, you generalize and formulate clueless opinions.

    The solution t any classroom situation is just like any school. If you aren’t getting it you stay after school and the teacher works with you until you get it. There is no reason to
    change how you teach because you have a couple of guys that have ADD.

    I figure that Chuckles was slow to pick things up and can’t even sit still to watch a 10 minute cartoon.

  80. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    You are a moron. With 35 seconds left in a game and you are on your own 35 behind by 3 points and your team is still huddling up
    wasting 15 second? That tells me the QB can’t get to the line of scrimmage and call his own plays. It screams he’s incapable.
    How is the Wonderlic score of 37 working out for Kap since he can’t read a defense?

  81. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    “Oh yeah, i keep forgetting you are too chickenshit to post on my blog. As Bullit. Can’t hang with the adults. You can only hang with the children here.”

    I am not good at making barnyard noises so I choose not to go to the North Korean Blog that is Chuckles Fairyland.
    Why would I post on a blog where you censor evrything you don’t agree with?
    It’s pathetic that you come here to grovel and pander for posters. Scintillating and insightful football are not be found in the Fairyland blog.

  82. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Okay I’ll bite. “Scintillating and insightful football” That’s what I’m looking for. And, I’m here to tell you that you can find it when the
    f-ing season actually gets underway at both the Outsider and Chucks blog. Have a nice day.

  83. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Insightful commentary is that a high Wonderlic score is not an indicator of success in the NFL. Frank Gore is living proof.

    If you are on offense learning the playbook might be tougher than taking a Biochem class. That is why attention to detail especially in the classroom and the practice field because wht one person does might impact the success of the play.
    You have to pay attention and thereis no daydreaming or sleepwalking through this.

  84. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Warriors’ Victory Parade is winding through the streets of Oakland. A great day for a maligned city.

    For all the Warrior’s success special thanks needs to go to Phil Jackson who released Steve Kerr from his handshake agreement and allowed him to coach this team to the NBA Championship.

  85. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Jim’s old school. He wants to play hammer and nails football. He wants to grind it out. That is from the Cosell interview commenting on the new HC.

    We lose the two best run blockers on the team. We have young replacements for Iupati. AD has no replacement on the roster. Pears is a pass protector not known for his run blocking. We are adopting ZBS to cover up this inadequacy.

    Why was this ridiculous assertion put into this interview. Foerster has his work cut out for him to generate a grind it out rushing offense. Cosell was playing to his hosts, could be.

  86. winderNo Gravatar says:

    bullit – The wonderlic score means nothing to me. Gore was a human bowling ball and a HOF rb in my opinion.

    Tom- Hopefully Hyde and Davis will be big factors this year but with Hunter and Bush we have the capabilities to do lots of things. Forester does have his work cut out for him but I don’t think Cosell was talking Singletary football. I still think we will have a more dynamic offense than we had last year even with all the holes left with the exodus of players. We will fill the holes.

  87. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    11 – 5, really? A self-inflicted trashing of your reputation. Good chance of 5 – 11. You could claim temporary insanity. Or dyslexia?

  88. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Hard to take a guy seriously like Chuckles who proclaims himself an adult and yet shows his infantile mentality with insults like

    “When this team goes 11-5 and you guys are holding your dicks, I’ll be laughing all the way to the bar”

    “Do I give you shit for cruising gay bars? If that’s the way you swing, go for it. I’m not here to judge your lifestyle.”

    Notice the subliminal message Chuckles is sending?
    Like said it’s impossible to have a conversation with an unstable nutjob like Chuckles ho always makes things personal.

    If you notice it’s never about what’s being said, he always makes an issue of who is sayng it.

  89. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    How did Tom Cable get a top rushing attack with that rag tag oline. Do they use ZBS. Can Foerster do similar.

  90. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    What does chuck do in his day job. He operates like the mainstream media, baiting, provoking, and a lot of noise. I am here to learn about football. Not to engage in full contact verbal karate.

  91. winderNo Gravatar says:

    C’mon guys, admit it, you would miss chuck if he didn’t pop in now and then.

  92. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Bob Myers quoted John Wooden at the Warriors celebration
    “Much can accomplished through teamwork when no one is concerned who get’s credit”.

    Very profound.

  93. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    That’s the only reason Chuck’s here, Winder. Comic relief.

  94. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    The only invitation I want him to receive is the one where he and I are in the octagon and I impose all the ill will that niners fans have upon Jed York and his scrawny body.

    Gotta love that from a 30 on 30 article.

  95. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    “C’mon guys, admit it, you would miss chuck if he didn’t pop in now and then.”

    Wanna bet?

    Chuck says it’s all about him here, and he’s done his best to keep it that way!

    It’s always been funny to me that the folks posting on his blog don’t take offense at his snubbing them to post here instead. Ten to one I’d guess. Maybe he thinks they’re stupid for buying what he’s peddling and he wants no part of that kinda stupid.

  96. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    ““Much can accomplished through teamwork when no one is concerned who get’s credit”.

    Paraphrasing Truman? Where politics is all about who gets the credit.

  97. EarlNo Gravatar says:

    I see Barrows is predicting an 8-8 season even though he admits the O-line and D-line will be worse this season. Games are usually won and lost in the trenches so can’t see how he gets to 8-8.

  98. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The fact that the Seahags stole Jimmy Graham from the Aints makes the Seahags a lot tougher to stop.
    It’s really going to be a challenge to sop The Seahags on 3rd down and in the Redzone.
    The changes that impact the Niners the most in the NFC West are Jimmy Graham and the Rams adding Todd Gurley.

  99. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Read the Barrows article and reinforces local guys are compromised. The youth and inexperience for both DE’s impacts LB and DB in a negative way. Unless Evan Mathis comes in and Foerster is really good the oline cannot be counted on as a positive.

    O should be better but the D inexperience and brutal schedule will get us a top 10 pick. No Homer here.

  100. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Hope spit comes back on occasion as a guest poster. His time and mental health forced him to leave. Good man and good decision. Regular season starts and reality hits hard.

  101. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Tom, did I miss some sort of announcement from Spit?

  102. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    I assume he is on some other sites and finally gave up on the niners. No announcement unless chuck found him somewhere else.

  103. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Saw that too from Barrows Earl (8-8). He appears to be forcing optimism and I too wondered about the OL mess. I do think the Niner org is clamping down on local media to ‘speak well’…or else. Damage control via PR. Hello Cosell.

    Ministry of Truth

  104. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I wouldn’t pay much attention to anything Chuck has to say. He never met a conclusion he couldn’t jump to without a shred of evidence to support it.

  105. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    If Graham and Gurley are the new problems we face it might explain Tartt and Armisted in the first two rounds?

  106. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Tartt due to big pass TE like Graham. Just like Ward for Harvin and Austin. I think they want to develop AA to be the new Cowboy.

  107. winderNo Gravatar says:

    phil – TC will tell us just about all we’ll need to know about our rookie class. I think Tartt steps in and helps us right away, I have a feeling our Saftey’s are gonna be very involved with the defensive game plan. But, that is just smoke until we see what he’s made of. Real curious about Armisted too, he’ll probably be a project for this year and hopefully he will show some progress. Hope Busta ain’t a bust. And, there really is no sense in worrying about what we’re gonna do until we see where we fall short.

  108. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    I think BakkenTom is by far my new favorite blogger. He can assume with the best of us. It’s a festivus. But I would like to make a few announcements. I, Sir Spitblood from Gereoushire, do hereby announce that anyone who willingly blogs with Chuck is a nincompoop. Furthermore, while I have the floor, I’d also like to make the announcement that Jed York is the worst owner in all of sports – his failures rivaled only by Marge Schott and Donald Sterling. But Marge and Donald both have an excuse – they’re old (Marge is really old…. died in 2004), and old people are racist (look at Del). What excuse does Jed York have? Pre-teen baldness? My two insights for the day: Don’t blog with Chuck, and pre-teen baldness is the source of Jed York incompetence.

  109. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Well, we won’t be seeing Chuck here any more. I decided to call Winder’s bet and booted Chuck off the blog Friday afternoon.

  110. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Jordan Spieth is tearing it up at the US Open.
    Hook’em Horns!

  111. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    A lot to expect of a rookie to shadow Jimmy Graham.
    If you double Graham, Lynch will run wild.
    When I heard about the trade I thought the Aints got fleeced.

  112. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Good point about Ward on board to neutralize Harvin and Austin. Get that man healthy! Hope Tartt is able to slow down Graham and Armisted steps up to fill some pretty big shoes. “Big Shoes” Armisted, I like it, lol.

    Winder we are getting closer to finding out how all this stirring the pot works out with the new players, coaches. Going to be velly intellesting…

    Spit, so you think York and Chuck are on the same level? Man that’s loooow. I guess Skeebs finally had enough. I already don’t miss him. Yikes.

  113. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit SEA is going to be a load with Lynch and Graham on O. Even if we keep them somewhat contained, say to a TD apiece, will we be able to keep the WRs under wraps AND score enough? In Seattle? We have a ways to go to find enough O unless Kap gets rolling…

  114. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Remember Harvin is out of the division.
    He was traded to the Jest and is now with Greg Roman and the Bills.
    Austin has never been a factor so far. Rams traded up for him and he has had little impact.

  115. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    The Rams drafted the #1 rated RB (like we did the year before with Hyde), along with OTs in rds. 2,3 and 4. They drafted a QB in the 3rd, an OG and a WR in 6. If that’s not offensive minded, I don’t know what is.

    Did I mention they picked up Nick Foles? He was 6-2 in starts in 2014 before his broken collarbone in win #7. He was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2013 with 2 fumbles lost and 2 interceptions FOR THE SEASON. He finished 9-4 in his starts that season, including finishing 7-1 with road wins over GB and Dal.

    That’s the worst of the Niners divisional rivals.

  116. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    IOW, the Eagles were 14-3 in Nick Foles last 17 regular season starts (he had a 105 QBR in the Eagles 2 pt. loss to the Saints in the 2013 playoffs).

    Now he is on the Rams.

  117. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Because of all the surprise retirements the depth on the Niners has been compromised.
    The Oline depth is suspect where I’m having flashbacks of Chilo Rachal and Kwame Harris holding on TD plays and false starting on 3rd and 1.It was standard operating procedure to look for that flag when we scored and usually there was one.
    Brandon Thomas is still a big question mark because nobody has seen him as a pro. I hope he lives up to his billing but Joe Looney drafted in a similar spot has yet to pan out.

  118. winderNo Gravatar says:

    skeebs- Say it ain’t so.

  119. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    The Giants are under .500 against the rest of the league and 9-2 against the 1st place Dodgers. LOL, that was worth putting in here just to see it in print.

    Oh well, it still looks good.

    You see nothing wrong in his behavior?
    Time to take the blinders off then.

    “Also I don’t make fun of spelling. That’s Bullitt’s realm. That’s a typo, BTW, you brain dead f-u-c-k.”

    “Well, at least I don’t have to give my credit card number out to talk to women.
    You guys put the jerk into circle-jerk.”

    ” o I give you shit for cruising gay bars? If that’s the way you swing, go for it. I’m not here to judge your lifestyle. Just you idiotic views on football, and your flip-flop on everything that comes out about the team.”

    This is all from a single night of ranting and basically is meant to provoke.

    Let me ask you again Winder. You see nothing wrong with someone whose intentions are not to talk football in a civil manner but to flame and provoke with every post?

  122. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    It should be fun to force Chuck to blog at his own site for a awhile. Of course, that won’t relieve his anger management issues, since he has to be nice to his own commenters. It could put his family in danger, though, without the Outsider to vent his pent up frustrations.

  123. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – Ok, that stuff really doesn’t have a lot to do with football. But, you two guys have been vollying insults to each other forever. In the scheme of things that was pretty light weight.

  124. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Let me just say the if he runs Dennis off he’ll have to target someone else.
    He can’t help himself.
    If it’s you you’ll ether retaliate or quit.

  125. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    A few years ago I revealed that my mother was in a senior care facility.
    Chuck asked me why didn’t she blow her brains out because that’s what he would do if he were in her situation.

    That comment has always resonated with me to what an insensitive bullying oaf he truly is.

  126. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit- yeah, that’s over the top and a little too personal. I have a hard time believing that he meant to go after your family. Since I don’t know the context he probably meant what he would personally do. But, it is none of my busimess so I will butt-out.

  127. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    I’d like to chime-in on this topic if you’ll all so kindly oblige me… First off, a blog is designed to advance topics, create insights and educate readers. The function of a blog isn’t designed to be a place where people come to pick fights with one another. Fighting on blogs slows or retards the process of any thesis and it’s acceptance or rejection. If you sprinkle into it a few of our lesser human emotions like jealousy, stubbornness and pride, you get endless arguments that ultimately result in name calling. And that’s who Chuck has become. I find it ironic that Winder wants Chuck around because Winder is the anti Chuck, not picking fights – being too classy to engage. Maybe Winder is workin’ one of those vicarious kinda deals, but I digress.

    Chuck fights with NoFear, Bullit, Skeebers and myself because instead of respecting our viewpoints, he feels compelled to belittle them, understanding that picking fights slows the process of advancing topics. And this is what Chuck has been doing to this blog for years now. I’m a hypocrite because I belittle NJ, but trust me, NJ hasn’t advanced a topic since his frontal lobe lobotomy was performed in the summer of 2012.

    I think Skeebers has what it takes to run a very successful blog. Skeebers doesn’t over-do-it. He’s not too heavy-handed with banning people, and he doesn’t harp or make his opinions law. In addition, he’s an awesome writer. I’ve thought for a while that Chuck has seen that Skeebers has the goods on Chuck, so Chuck tries to run Skeebers’ blog into the ground – constantly fighting with Bullit, when Bullit really just wants a place to discuss sports.

    This idea or notion that without Chuck (and Reno and Del for that matter) this blog will die is foolish. If you want to start a blog and watch it grow, aside from the attributes Skeebers possess I just outlined above, you also need participants who get along while also disagreeing. And you need new talent. I don’t pretend to know how to attract new talent to a blog, but I do know that if new talent does stop by and he or she witnesses Chuck’s antics, they’re gonna run for the hills….”run for your life….”

    Chuck’s blog does, however, have an advantage over Skeebers’ blog – and that’s that Chuck, no matter what, will always side with Jed York. In doing so, Chuck corners the homer market, made-up of yes men and climate (at least in Santa Clara) change deniers. This means that Chuck will always have participants, no matter how lost and clueless. And Chuck also will always have his five different user names he runs allowing Chuck to debate with himself and keep his blog alive.

    But I think Winder has a legitimate concern. When do you stop blogging at a place that shuts down the voice of the opposition, making the blog a place for like-minded thought? When you do that, your blog is in trouble. But I think Skeebers knows this. He hung with Chuck for light years longer than I would have. And Chuck did intentionally make this place miserable. Look at Chuck’s own blog where he’s written several times, “I love winding those guys up.” And in response, I’ve written several times “Why blog with Chuck?” It was only a matter of time before Skeebers banned Chuck and we all went on our merry ways.

    The issue on this blog, going forward, is whether or not Jed York’s incompetence as an owner will make everyone on this side of the fence go seek-out other sports to follow. Go Warriors! Go Giants! Go Michigan! If York incompetence regresses this team back to the Singletary era, others on this blog, like myself, will continue to lose interest seeing that the 49ers could wander the wastelands for 40 years. Then Skeebers’ blog will die and Chuck’s blog members will rejoice. But is that really a loss for Skeebers? If Skeebers, and the blog members who follow, see that Jed York is one of the worst owners in all of sports- and they really do just tune-out and find other means of entertainment, letting this blog die because York is such a lost cause, while Chuck’s blog continues with homers watching 4-12 seasons constantly claiming, “Next year will be our year,” has Skeebers really lost anything? Have we, on this side of the fence, really lost anything? I think not. But until that day has clearly come, banning someone who was just here to pick fights to intentionally slow the process was absolutely the right move.

    And one other thing, while ya’ve got me in a bloggin’ mood this fine Father’s Day afternoon – Midway through the NBA season I was telling you guys what a great team the Golden State Warriors were. I shamed you. I repeatedly said, “Shame on you if you aren’t watching the Golden State Warriors.” NJ asked me to stop shaming him, which gave me great pleasure.

    I’m not tooting my own horn, mind you. I live in Geneoushire, for God’s sakes. Spotting an awesome Warriors team that could win it all early on is expected in the Shire. It’s expected by you; it’s expected by me. But I’ve got another great talent scouting or sighting for you all – way in advance.

    His name is Bernie Sanders. And yes, he could become the next POTUS – provided they don’t kill him first. I think the rich in America killed JFK. I think after FRD, the rich in America saw that a truly charismatic change agent president only comes along every so often. Obama wasn’t that guy because Obama couldn’t sell. He couldn’t cut through the rhetoric and rally people to create great change. Obama is still a successful president, but the rich in America love Obama, and so many people in the middle and lower classes voted for Obama because they thought Obama would change their plight. But Obama didn’t. Obama got the economy back on track, and did a lot of great things, but he didn’t do what the middle and lower classes hired him to do – grow the middle class.

    Bernie Sanders, however, can grow the middle class better than Hillary – and Bernie will be a great president for the middle class like FDR and JFK… if the rich in America don’t kill Bernie Sanders first.

    You heard it here first. Bernie will be our next president… if they don’t kill him. Go to Youtube and watch him. I agree with everything he’s said and written. Go Bernie, GO!!!!

  129. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Actually, I should clarify two things: The rich in America don’t love Obama – but they should. Obama hasn’t raised taxes on the rich. Obama hasn’t stopped big businesss (like John Deer Tractor) from dodging taxes by putting corp offices overseas. Obama hasn’t thwarted Wall Street in anyway. He hasn’t jailed white collar criminals. Big Business and the rich in America have thrived under Obama. They hate him, but that’s simply an irony.

    The other issue I need to clarify is my point about FDR and JFK. A truly great change agent president who inspires the middle class to act and change the government only comes along every twenty or so years. I got sidetracked, like I often do, writing about Obama, but after FDR, the rich in America said, “We won’t allow another FDR.” If there’s a truly affective Democratic president who will rally the voter to change the rules, we’re killin’ him because guys like FDR and JFK don’t grow on trees. They can’t be easily replaced. They only come around every twenty years. Who picked up the torch after JFK? His brother? What happened to him? Who picked up the torch after Martin Luther King? Nobody. So the rich killed JFK and his brother… and killed Lee Harvey, so nobody would be left to inspire the voters to change things.

    Since JFK who’ve we had? Carter? Not ready to be president. Clinton? He was in bed with big business. Hell, it was Clinton who allowed Glass Steagall to be dissolved and who brought in Greenspan. Clinton and Obama were affective Democratic presidents who appeased the poor and middle class, but still made the rich in America richer. But what about a president who attacks the rich? Anyone ever watch or listen to FDR? He attacked the rich and FDR attacked the supreme court, much like Bernie Sanders does regarding the Citizens United ruling.

    Clinton and Obama were in bed with the rich. We haven’t had a Democratic president since JFK who attacked the rich. Bernie Sanders is attacking the rick like JFK…. And if Bernie gets close to the White House, they’ll kill him. Mark my words.

    “Where have you gone Joe Dimaggio.” Education and truth is the key, and the moral compass of society will fall into place as dictated by the needs of such society. Free will is a belief not a reality. But what the “F” does any of that have to do with football and the Niners? Nothing.

  131. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Nothing like Fathers Day and watching the final round of the US Open.
    Chambers Bay is a different kind of golf course.
    Rooting for my guy Jordan Spieth who’s tied for the lead.

    The unbelievable thing is guys like Dustin Johnson hitting 240 yd 5 irons and 200 yd 7 irons.

  132. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I’ll tie the US Open in with football. Unfortunately one of the pros Jason Dufner made a side trip to Seahags practice and hit some balls with Petey and Dick Sherman and they showed it earlier on the broadcast because they’re in Tacoma.

  133. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Hear hear. The business about Chuck being excused and for good cause. Most of the time he was merely annoying but as we saw this week there was other, angrier stuff there which he insisted on using to try to dominate and control others here. Not good. I always wondered about that but I guess the tipping point was reached.

    Came at a good time as we have a break from football at the moment. Yesterday was Fathers Day here and had a nice dinner out at a Thai restaurant. Also the school year is starting here today and the son is off for his first day of 10th grade. So change is in the air and the timing is good.

    I wonder how the ‘new’ blog configuration will work out as we look at the limping beast known as the SF 49ers. I suppose calmer, less conflicted. But that won’t affect the product/team on the field unfortunately. Too bad the owners haven’t been replaced but one step at a time, lol. It will do to keep expectations low which is what I have with my 7-9 call.
    I’ll be pleasantly surprised if we exceed that by much.

  134. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Wonder what happened to NJ? Must have been too much excitement around here? Hey NJ, you out there?

  135. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    What a messed up U.S. Open. The ugliest course in history, the worst greens in history, Oosthuizen is +2 after 11 on the final day and is now tied for the lead.

    He birdies 6 of the last 7 to shoot an all-time record back nine of 29, finishes -4.

    It gets better. After he signs he scorecard and heads for the clubhouse, he picks up 2 strokes to tie for the lead. Spieth double bogeys 17.

    Johnson birdies 17, so now it’s a 3 way tie. Now Spieth has a short birdie putt on 18 to retake the lead. With these greens, though, you might as well be playing at your local miniature golf course. (I LOVE miniature golf. The Santa Cruz Beach/Boardwalk has a neat little pirate themed indoor course.)

  136. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Spieth missed the eagle putt, gets the bird to retake the lead. Only Johnson remains, needing a bird on the 18th.

  137. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Now Johnson has an eagle putt to win. 15 feet? A mile on these greens…

  138. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Johnson three putts from 15 feet, two putts from 3 feet. A fitting ending to what I hope is the very last U.S. Open ever played at this overgrown sand dune. Spieth wins.

    I jinxed the Giants. Oops, long season yet.

  139. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Another hole or two and Oosthuizen would’ve won by sitting drinking beer in the club bar.

  140. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The adage holds true

    “You drive for show and putt for dough”.

    Spieth wins, it’s all that matters to me. They all had to play the same course. Case in point Chambers Bay is a public course and also an eco-friendly tract. They built it out of an old granite quarry.
    The US Open is supposed to be the toughest test in golf. Today was proof that it was no joke. I thought Dustin Johnson at least was a lock for a tie and a playoff.

    Hook’em Horns! Jordan Spieth will move up to #1 golfer in the world.

  141. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    I have no problems with tough courses, and yes I’ve heard the argument that all players played the same course. (If they played at Sunnyvale Muni, all players would play the same course, too. It has nothing to do with quality of course.)

    Tough and an equal test of skill is one thing, randomness is another. Those greens were random. I saw one putt today roll up towards the hole and make a right turn. Not a curve, a right turn. It hit something and bounced. That seemed to be the problem everywhere. That’s random. Playing basic dice, high dice wins gives everyone the same chance, too. It’s still random, not a test of skill.

    Spit – Politics makes me sick.
    The thought that each and every American has a voice in the Democratic process, has become nothing but a talking point.
    Big money has taken our voices and, corrupted the process once known as Democracy.

    I’m with you about Bernie.
    He’s old school anti-establishment.
    Gotta like an old curmudgeon that thumbs his nose at the Ivory Tower.
    Unfortunately, he lacks a Super PAC, which means he doesn’t have to be killed, just outspent.

    Wall St owns Washington.
    Having watched countless friends, forfeit their pensions at the end of the ‘W’ era, I’ve lost all faith in the process that, ANYONE in DC, will ever have an advantage over the Money Machine in this Country.

    Sad but true.
    The only thing I’m looking forward to at this point is, for our beloved Gov to throw his hat in the GOP ring.
    Just for the show I’d expect from the debates with The Donald.
    In case he didn’t remind us often enough, he’s rich.
    On paper.
    Pick an IDIOT.

  144. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    One of these days we’ll get back to our favorite distraction = football. But for now it’s the US Open, NBA and the remains of Chuck. Yeah, dead season but still fun to check in when something comes up.

    Politics, yikes. I’m with you NJ in that I have no faith in any of the process anymore. Unlike Spit but to each his own. I would like to see stronger, less partisan, national leadership but we are stuck with the status quo until next election. It’s still a dangerous world out here but Americans have no idea generally being ‘rich’ and insulated. Pray it hangs together…

    Cheerio friends

  145. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Phil the process should be tempered to where a Dem and a GOP candidate duke it out for 1st and 2nd Place.
    Winner becomes POTUS, loser becomes the VP.

    Then, the rest of us get to challenge their record, every year, for what gets accomplished.
    If they fail to deliver what the PEOPLE want, they change roles.
    If, after the 1st term, things don’t move accordingly, out they go.
    No 2nd Term.
    Start again.

    Sick of the stalemates, wasted spending, neglect of the Middle Class, you name it.
    This Country has issues, too numerous to whine about but, nothing is getting done, beyond finger pointing across the aisle.
    DC has become a tired joke of incompetence.

    Force both Parties to achieve what the people put them in Office to do.
    Fix problems.
    Let the people determine the priorities, let the Politicians find the means to achieve results.
    Can’t move the agenda, change places.
    You get 4 years to DO SOMETHING.

    Endless whining about which Party did, or didn’t do something has to end.
    Work for the people you’re elected to work for.
    The taxpayers.

  146. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    NJ49er, “everybody” thinks what you said, but most won’t even bother to vote and of those who do only a few will bother to educate themselves to the issues and candidates. Most brainlessly vote party period.

    It is a certainty when republican candidates are covered in the media they will be bashed by every network save Fox and every major newspaper and magazine. Damn few voters will bother to look any deeper for their own information.

    It’s a matter of controlling the information and the Dems have a lock on it. Zero’s administration has more than a half dozen scandals being stonewalled. Where’s the outrage?

    The system only works if/when the people participate, hold their representatives to account and elect moral men or women to represent them. When graft and corruption are not only tolerated but celebrated we are in a world of hurt.

    It’s hard to blame the corruption on the corrupt folks we keep electing. “What did you expect? After all, I am a snake.”

    Hillary Clinton is the poster child for graft and corruption. She leads her party by a mile. Whose fault is that, the system’s?

  147. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Good comments NJ. You have more ideas on this than I do. But then you live where politics are full time entertainment! Here I’m far from the US scene. Being from California if I was there I’d be more worried about the drought…no not the Niners drought.

  148. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NF I agree that voters get the gummint they deserve. This is why I agree with Skeebs comment that ‘Sports is more important than politics’ sarc/ It’s a fine line between being cynical and trying to be realistic.

    If we were talking about the Niners I’m sure Winder would agree with that! lol

  149. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er that’s the rub, in a nutshell.
    Under-educated masses, being bombarded with big money media soundbites, to coerce the vote.

    I’ve remained an Independent for many years, attempting to hear what each candidate plans to bring to the table.
    The sad reality is, many of these ‘gifted’ politicians, speak to us in tongues, that soothe the voter’s soul, only to cater to those that bought their way in later on.

    Our culture is sold to the highest bidders.
    Special interests far outweigh taxpayers in this Country.
    I’m just hoping someone, anyone, puts Hillary’s feet to the fire during the Primary phase.
    This entire field, on both sides, scares me to death.

    I vote for a CEO. A leader.
    At this point, I’m being offered a field full of mid-management wannabes from the ‘almost’ brigade.


  150. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    LOL, I agree, NJ49er. Not a Washington or a Jefferson in the bunch. Then we get Trump to clown it up and make a mockery of it more than the serious candidates already do.

    Take the money out of it. Equal TV time and a primary system that doesn’t eliminate three quarters of the country. That’d be a start.

  151. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er, just to add a little perspective.
    My Dad, ex-military, staunch Republican all his life, said to me just the other day, he likes what he’s hearing from Lincoln Chafee.

    I put a hand to his forehead to make sure he was feeling alright.
    I laughed, then asked him what Party Chafee might join next?
    The guy has run the gamut now.
    GOP/Ind, now Dem.

    I’ll give him this much.
    He might expose Hillary if Bernie doesn’t.

    Stay tuned.
    The idiot train is taking on more riders.

    Trump is by far, the biggest Clown in this circus.
    No argument there.
    My money says he won’t file with the FEC.
    He’d have to open his portfolio to scrutiny.
    Where he’ll be exposed as the ‘paper billionaire’ he purports to be.
    This douche has screwed many a lender/investor along the way.
