EDITOR'S NOTE: This audio tape contains cursing and vulgarity.
The reason why the 49ers have yet to sign quarterback Alex Smith yet became very clear Friday when reports surfaced that the team not only has shown interest in free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning but were the first to watch him throw. ESPN reported on Friday that 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman flew to North Carolina on Tuesday to watch the 11-time Pro Bowl quarterback, who is recovering from multiple neck surgeries, throw and to give him a physical.
Taking your family to a professional sporting event should be fun and passionate, not dangerous. Drunks hurling obscenities and starting fights should not be tolerated.
Manuel Austin’s first trip to a San Francisco 49ers game in more than seven years didn’t go as planned. Now, with his head still aching from what he says was a vicious, alcohol-fueled attack at the hands of fellow red-and-gold-clad fans, it will be much longer than that before he sets foot in an NFL stadium again.
Members of the Mainstreet Media Group (Hollister Free Lance, Gilroy Dispatch, Morgan Hill Times) decided to predict the winners of Sunday's NFL conference championship games. Here are the picks:
Alex Smith and Vernon Davis hooked up for one of the most memorable touchdowns in San Francisco 49ers history last Saturday, lifting the Niners into weekend’s NFC title game. The moment was icing on the cake for super fan Mark Castanon, who scored a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity earlier in the week.
We want to hear about your experience witnessing the San Francisco 49ers beat the New Orleans Saints in San Francisco for a ticket to the NFC Championship game.
Oh, yeah, that's what should be on Gilroy's priority list – a new tobacco ordinance that forbids smoking in our parks, at the designated areas at the Garlic Festival, on our golf courses and, what's next, on our back porch? I get it - smoking is bad for you. But I believe that government believing it has an unlimited right to socially engineer everyone's life is just as bad, and perhaps worse. Gilroy has an obesity problem, so let's outlaw potato salad and the selling of Carl's Jr. bacon burgers within the city limits. It's amazing the things that make the priority list just because some advocacy organization, probably slyly funded by taxpayer dollars, received money so that bureaucrats can claim a "purposeful" livelihood. Who's going to enforce this ordinance? The police do nothing about all the hooch smokers at Las Animas Veterans Park and Christmas Hill Park near the amphitheater now. The Council should send Breathe America and its social engineering lobbying effort packing. Enough already. Educate, but do not dictate.
