Nothing to See Here

Until there is something to report, well I guess we can post music. Other than that I got nothing. . .

Sooo, to kick things off, this is one of the craziest live guitar solos ever put to the earth, sky, and heavens . . .

    Just gonna use google for this stuff from now on

    Giants in NYC. Yup you guessed it. Another loss.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    I like acoustic stuff as much as the next guy, but . . .

    • Winder says:

      I was just in a mood this morning, those were some of my favorite folk music people.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Heh, no prob! Anything but opera (and some country) music in my book.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Winder, did I tell you I saw Richard Thompson last year at Red Rocks? He opened for Bonnie Raitt and they closed the show by performing together. It was really really good. I hadn’t seen him in about 35 years.

    • Winder says:

      chuck, very nice. That song has a lot of meaning for me, place and time. I bet that was a great show.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    There are times I love the internet . . . Check out the line up.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, that’s pretty cool. It’s amazing how little I listen to Zeppelin these days. I can’t seem to take it anymore. Except for Physical Grafitti.

    Did see Robert Plant a couple years ago in Napa. He did some solo stuff and some Zeppelin. His band was good and weird.

    Season of the Witch always segues (in my head) to this . . .

    And that leads to . . .

    Blaine Gabbert signs with AZ!!

    • 12th man says:

      Kap signs with……..
      I said there was a strong possibility of Kap being out of football this year.
      Teamates awards dont amount to shit, owners and coaches do.
      Not even a meeting or visit so far and now there is no compensatory pick and still zilch.

      His best shot is a starter has a serious injury in camp, or maybe Canada.

      He has his rights, so does the league.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Collusion isn’t a right, tho. In the end, I don’t give a rat’s ass, but seeing Gabbert getting a job, along with Geno Smith, it’s pretty galling that Kappy doesn’t get one. I mean, really, it’s hard to side with the rich white guys running the league on this one. Fucking Trump is bragging about keeping him out of the league.

      • Winder says:

        kap pretty much made his own bed with this one. Right from the beginning he did it all wrong. Proving collusion will be difficult but that is what it is.

  13. 12th Man says:

    Collusion? Maybe, or maybe nobody wants a guy that puts himself and his girlfriends causes in front of their football team. I know as a fan I didn’t appreciate his method of drawing attention to his girlfriends cause or having to deal with the bullshit from other fans and feeling like I was put in a position of defending the team whilst agreeing with them that that was no place or way to protest police violence, racial inequality and whatever else he decided to showcase.

    It’s no surprise he has no interest from teams, what owner or coach wants a declining QB who places himself above the team and its fanbase and has serious questions as to his commitment to football? I wrote last year he may well be out of football this year, blowback was inevitable.

    The guy is radioactive and he did it to himself. Decrying others reaction to what he created is placing blame on the wrong side of the equation IMO.

    Is a universally shared opinion amongst teams necessarily collusion or just an easy out to justify Kap getting no calls?

    Dumb.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Well, Trump bragged to Robert Kraft that he is keeping Kaepernick out of the league, with their help of course. I didn’t necessarily agree with what CK did either, but I certainly don’t think he doesn’t have the right to do it.

    What pisses me off is the false equivalency given to the situation. As if PASSIVELY kneeling for a cause is worse than beating up your girlfriend or killing someone driving drunk. The Ravens applauded Ray Rice after he knocked her lights out, for God’s sake. Greg Hardy was convicted of spousal abuse but played on with little or no backlash.

    As with guys like Donte Stallworth, kneeling for a cause pales in comparison to killing a pedestrian while drunk. Yet he gets to play after a year suspension. Where’s the blackballing of Stallworth? Why doesn’t the league stand up to vehicular homicide? Leonard Little was suspended for 8 games for killing a young mom driving drunk. He wasn’t even suspended when he got ANOTHER DUI in 2004. It’s ludicrous.

    • 12th Man says:

      The other cases you cited are legal issues not personal protest. The law sets punishment and the league suspends players in trouble with the law. I personally would kick any guy off a team convicted of crimes against a woman and would suspend a guy pending the court outcome of a guy who evidence strongly suggests he may be guilty, but none of that is anything to do with Kap.

      He chose to piss off millions of fans, the very people that keep football in business. What did he expect would be the reaction?

      I also didn’t say Kap doesn’t have the right to protest, he does, but he also must expect people, especially those in the entertainment business of football, to react to his protest and this is the reaction.

      Personally speaking I think there is a case for some police brutality and racial inequality, I vehemently disagreed with protesting at a football game while taking a knee during the National Anthem which to me is the same as spitting on the flag.

      Fuck him and good riddance, he is reaping exactly what he sowed.

    • 12th Man says:

      Sorry Chuck but using Trump to bolster an argument is a losing gambit right off the bat. It’s like citing Grant Cohn as a reliable source for football.
      Trump will say anything to get adulation, like a vapid teenage girl.

    • 12th Man says:

      Yes I got your point Chuck, you believe its all collusion and Trump gives himself credit for strong-arming the league. All B.S. IMO.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    I don’t equate a passive protest with spitting on the flag, but whatever. He likely will get the call when teams get desperate.

    • 12th Man says:

      I don’t find snubbing the national anthem by deliberately kneeling when the whole stadium has been asked to stand as a mark of respect is passive. Its a deliberate action not an inaction. Each to his own, he thumbed his nose at our country in my eyes and many feel the same, including the league that paid him and the fans that make that possible.

      He can suck it.

  16. Berger says:

    Kap is not being colluded or blackballed. He is asking for a lot more money than Gabbert and wants to start. Until his demands come down he isn’t a commodity that is wanted. Add to that he is polarizing and he has really been the one who is hurting himself. Look at how he is polarizing this very site.

    Now a report comes out this week that some of his former team mates and coaches think he is more into activism than football. That can’t help, whether true or not. Any GM who wants to sign him for any price would need to get approval from ownership because right or wrong Kap would polarize the fan base, if nothing else. The distraction is not something a coach should have to deal with.

    A person has the right to choose but those choices come with consequences. Kap and his fans are having trouble understanding that. The only thing left to cite is collusion. I guess when nobody wants to be burned by hot lava it is collusion against the lava. Even with all that, if Kap would take the kind of money Gabbert took he might have a chance to get signed because after all, winning cures a lot of problems. Some would even touch hot lava if thy thought there was gold inside.

    • Winder says:

      Berger, you could very well be right about Kap. Personally I don’t give a shit if he plays or doesn’t. I would be interested to know what he is asking for though. If you got a link please post it. I have looked and I can’t find anything about that. And, as far as collusion goes the owners have every right to not give him a job for whatever reason they have. If I was an owner I wouldn’t give him a job either, way to much drama.

      • Berger says:

        Dan Patrick was saying he wanted more money than Gabbert and wants to start. I heard it on yesterday’s show on my drive to work. Doug Gotlieb even mentioned the part about wanting more money later while I was driving at lunch. This must have been topic dujour yesterday.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    I didn’t hear a peep out of Kaepernick that he wants anything but a chance. And yes, it’s a passive protest.

    Again, he don’t play, I don’t care. I just think it’s extremely hypocritical of the owners to cry foul on something like that when they regularly hire and condone killers and abusers.

    He’s donated millions to charity and has donated time and money to Camp Taylor, a camp for children with heart disease. Shit, he got Jed and Reid to pony up a million each. What an asshole.

    • 12th Man says:

      I don’t agree its passive, but agree to disagree.
      The owners haven’t cried foul.
      He donated a million, at least he will have eventually and nobody says his charity work is a bad thing or that he shouldn’t protest his girlfriends cause, its the when and how thats at issue.

    • unca_chuck says:

      The owners don’t need to cry foul. They run the game. Hence, all the animosity with the NFLPA.

  18. Berger says:

    Link on. Spend your life on it. I had no idea this was so important to you. LMAO! You should call him and ask to be his agent. I really don’t give a shit about the subject. I do agree with 12th. I was just piping in what I heard. Seems you are in major disbelief.

  19. Berger says:

    Too funny. I searched for almost 10 seconds and look what pops up at the top of the search.
    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/colin-kaepernick-reportedly-wants-9-10-million-per-year-and-a-chance-to-start/

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Unnamed sources that haven’t talked to him. 2 months ago. I heard through unnamed sources that you were Michael Jackson’s monkey. Impressive. And your 2 links were false. You don’t give a shit about the subject yet cite 2 reports that didn’t support your stance. So you accidentally misheard 2 reports about Kaepernick on the radio in one day? Now that’s funny.

    Lame, but impressive. Thou doth protest too much.

  21. Lurker John says:

    Some interesting insights into a few of the UFDA’s the Niners signed. Golden and Nwachukwu, in particular, bear keeping an eye on. The UFDA’s might be the one of the really interesting parts of the upcoming camp. I know they’re all long shots, but given the team’s need for pass rushers and secondary men, maybe a couple of them will develop into good pieces, or even impact players. A solid pass rush would go a long way towards improving the defense.

    I can’t wait for camp to start.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    I like the 2 TEs we got. Kittle in the draft and the UDFA Cole Hikutini. VMcDropsy may or may nor stick around with these guys on the team.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    I still can’t believe he got an extension last season.

    • Winder says:

      chuck- I can’t either. I want to blame Baalky for it because it was one of his final acts being GM. But, Paarage also signed off on it so not sure why it was done. My guess is they both couldn’t judge talent.

  24. alleykat69 says:

    Former 49er Tackle Len Rohde passed away at 79..Good player back in the 60’s,Still holds a consecutive games streak at 208 ..RIP Len

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Ahhh, man. He was part of a great O line in the playoff run in the 70s. I think in ’71 they gave up 12 sacks in 14 games. Great tackle.

  26. Winder says:

    Len Rohde was a great football player, tough as nails. RIP

  27. unca_chuck says:

    My first year of really following the Niners was in 1968. Forrest Blue, Len Rhode, Gene Washington, Ted Kwalick, Jonn Brodie, Jimmy Johnson and all the rest are burned into my memory.
