In what appears at 1st glance to be an easy road rest for a loaded team vs a team in a world of confusion, the tables have been turned somewhat as the Niners are going through the wringer this preseason and now season.
The Niners decided, with no qualms, to let Ray McDonald play. Despite the recent words of Coach Harbaugh saying there’s no place on his team for spouse abusers. Hypocritical to say the least, because something happened to give the girlfriend bruises around her neck. But due process, and the football juggernaut, supersede the ramifications of individuals getting hurt and abused by their loved ones and by the system.
Yeah, this happens all over the league, and yeah the 49ers of the Walsh era were not saints either. I mean, just look at Eddie, but Christ, 10 arrests in 3 years? And now this? Culliver’s hit-and-run hasn’t even hit the commish’s desk, and the Niner paperwork is stacking up with every passing week.
This shit gets tiresome. At some point, the character of the entire organization must fall under scrutiny, and it doesn’t look pretty. From Jed to Trent Baalke to Harbaugh to the players themselves.
I’m excited for the team, I’m excited for the new stadium, and I should be gearing up for a game against our hated rivals the Cowboys. But this shit leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Aren’t we supposed to be better than this?
