  1. Cromartie should either learn how to keep his d(u)ck in his pants or wrap that sh!t up!! damn, you would think these fools would learn from the likes of Shawn Kemp and Travis Henry.

  2. Somebody needs to tell Antonio Cromartie that he’s only half the man that Travis Henry is.

  3. “If Eddie DeBartolo hadn’t lost control of the 49ers, the team might not be poised to leave San Francisco. ”
    The writer of the article is sort of sloppy. The 49ers are a wholly owned subsidiary of the Edward J. DeBartolo Corp and as such, were always owned in equal shares by Eddie and his sister Denise. She didn’t gain “official ownership” in 2000, she had it since the day the ownership of the franchise was put under corporate control in violation of NFL rules against corporate ownership (49ers were fined $500,000). Maybe the 49ers would have a new stadium and wouldn’t be leaving if Eddie hadn’t tried to save a few bucks on his taxes.
    Or better yet, how about if Eddie hadn’t broken the law and found himself a convicted felon, the team might not be poised to leave SF? But that’s not right either, because San Francisco liberals have always been better at spending other people’s money than they have been at spending their own. The 49ers found little support for a new stadium when Fast Eddie and the 49ers asked for $100 million from taxpayers, and some say that they got what they got only by committing election fraud, which is another liberal hallmark.
    The only thing Eddie has ever been good at is writing checks on other peoples’ money anyway.

  4. The San Diego Union-Tribune article says “Cromartie has been named in AT LEAST five paternity suits in the past two years”. He could be in Travis Henry and Shawn Kemp territory, but not quite “Sedale Threatt Land”.

  5. only 10% of season ticket holders actually live in San Francisco. the teams headquarters and practice facility is and has been in Santa Clara for decades. It only makes sense for the team to play down in the south bay. No reason to change the name but plenty of reasons to move the games closer to the people that are actually attending them

  6. Maybe Matt Mosely can sniff some of the same glue that Theisman sniffed when he predicted a Pro Bowl year for Jason Campbell.
    I mean….it could happen if 8 NFC QBs decide to disclose mystery injuries, taking them out of the Pro Bowl. THEN, JC might make a Pro Bowl.
