The Ecstacy of Gould

With lil’ Robbie Gould bitching his way out of SF, and with the kicking saga in Chicago reaching epic proportions, you’d think we could work out some kind of fleecing deal that Lynch could conjure up with da Bears. Chicago is in kicking hell, and holding open tryouts for placekickers from the magic 33 yard line. Yes, the same 33 yard line where recently cut, and still collecting bank, Cody Pankey famously double-doinked his kick in the playoffs last year.

Funny thing is, no one in the tryouts can hit from 43. They had 8 guys kicking, and they went 2-8. They narrowed it down to Dewey, Cheathan, and Howe Piniero, Blewett, and Fry. They got the benefit of the doubt and were kicking 42 yard FGs. They all missed. Because Blewett, well, blew it, he was blown off the team. They are down to Fry and Piniero. Are they even options? Are they in the market for Robbie? He’s been openly pleading to go back there after they shoved him out the door 4 years ago.

Given the fact that Matt Nagy has made this such a huge deal for the team, one would think we could work out a trade. Chicago won’t be trading draft picks to us as they have burned a shit ton last year (1st and 2nd for Khalil Mack, 4th rounder to move up and get David Montgomery) and they only have 6 picks.

Players? It would be cool to get ILB Danny Trevathan from the Bears. They’ll get cap relief of around $6 mill, they get their kicker, and we shore up our defense even more. We’d proll have to throw in a 4th round pick or something, but hey sounds good to me.

    I doubt the Bears want to pay him a franchise type wage and then sign him to at least a couple more years of significant salary. I think they should because Robbie will win them a couple/few games with his leg. I really don’t get Robbie on this one he would make bank this year and if he shows good probably gets a good contract that would really help him and his family for his last couple of years. I guess finishing in Chicago means that much to him and that’s to bad since people really love him here.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Well, it sure doesn’t seem like anyone is breaking down our doors to trade for him.

    I seriously don’t get his position. Sit the year rather than get $5 mill? Fine buddy. We aren’t going to derail the train for a kicker.

    I can see Clint riding off into the sunset . . .

    Shout out to the Oakland Coliseum Arena. One last game to end the Warriors run there that could not be any bigger.

    The fans have supported the Warriors through thick and thin for nearly 50 years. I expect the crowd to be extra loud tonight and the team to be extra emotional. If the Warriors somehow win this title, it’ll be one of the greatest accomplishments by any team in any sport. Two. More. Games.

    Shit, even when they lost Klay, they had their shots. Missed free throws and turnovers. They could have won.

  5. NJ49er says:

    Bears got an extra 2nd to spare next year.
    Fleece them for it.
    Kicking in Chicago is an adventure in a good day.
    Robbie doesn’t want to be here.
    Easiest position in the world to take dive too.
    Miss on purpose.
    Force you’re way out.
    Hard place.

  6. NJ49er says:

    Being held hostage by a kicker.
    Only in SF.

  7. NJ49er says:

    Take the 2nd
    Throw in Thomas.
    Maybe Jed…

  8. NJ49er says:

    Shanny expects him on game 1.
    Bad gamble.
    Once/if he holds out..value plummets.

  9. NJ49er says:

    Fleece for peace 😀
    Do it Lynch.
    Safety in the hole buddy.
    Blow it up.

  10. NJ49er says:

    What’s better than giving Chicago a K and Solly for a 2nd?
    Lynch got nothing much for that move originally anyway.
    Chance for redemption.
    Do it John…
    Fleece Da Bears.

  11. NJ49er says:

    Geniuous move to get a 2 for a K.
    GMs everywhere would be jealous.
    Even Belichick.

  12. NJ49er says:

    Where the fuck are you?

  13. NJ49er says:

    No Fear…
    Where the fuck are you?

    Where the fuck are you?

    Blogosphere is going the route of the polar bear these days…

  16. NJ49er says:

    Throw it out here boys…
    Politics be damned.
    9ers are a hot mess since the York’s took over. Granted.
    Sooner or later the odds will balance out I hope.
    Despite ownership…
    We’re the Hekawi.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    I think Phil lost his coconuts.

    No way the Bears give up a 2. They’ve already eaten Pankey’s deal, and are on the hook to pay Gould $5 mill or some shit and whatever pieces we can pry off of them. DJ Jones and Gould for a 3?

  18. unca_chuck says:

    It’s fucking June, NJ!! Football purgatory. You can read 600 Bakkentom/Bullit links (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzxxzzzzzz). Or listen to music here!!

    NoFear is too ascared to post here. As are most of the playpen denizens. That’s their safe space!

  19. Winder says:

    Never heard that one before. Morrison sounds fucked up to the gills. I would have liked to be there.
    You tube is fucking great ya never know what might pop up

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, ol’ Jimbo was wasted. Back in the day there was a bootleg Hendrix album called Rated X. This must have been part of that stuff.

    One of the songs was Jim Morrison screaming “fuck her in the ass!” over and over. Wonder who the drunk harmonica player is.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    There’s a couple spots where he’s screaming over the harmonica I thought.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, weird shit definitely. Apparently this was part of a lot of tapes stolen from Hendrix’s flat in New York after he died. He used to carry around a 2-track tape recorder and sit in wherever he could around his place hear the Cafe Au Go-Go.

    • Winder says:

      Lol, a two track tape. That just shows how long it;’s been since he died. I imagine all kinds of stuff was stolen from his place, that’s what people do. His death was a real surprise to me, one to many reds. Totally accidental.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    The story I heard is he thought he was taking the English version of Vesperex, a sleeping pill, which were weak as shit, instead of the German ones, which were supposed to be broken into halfs.

    He took 8, which would have been a double-dose of the English ones, but ended up like 16 times the normal dose with the German ones.

    • Winder says:

      I read he had a few drinks and popped a couple of reds(seconal) passed out on his walk home and choked on his own vomit. Pretty similar to Brian Jones of the stones except I believe he died in his swimming pool. All that is from my memory I didn’t google anything about it. So I could very well be wrong.

      • unca_chuck says:

        The conspiracy theories abound with both of them. Jim Morrison as well. Jones was an excellent swimmer and it is unlikely he drowned on his own, and Jimi was apparently in a huge fight with the chick that he was with, Monika Danneman. She was very jealous, and had a violent temper.

      • Winder says:

        Piss some women off and they can be brutal. Brian Jones was definitely loaded to the gills and probably passed out in the pool. there were people around at the time IIRC.

  24. Bullittttt says:

    Jim Morrison is my hero. And there’s more to life than posting YouTube videos on this Cricketsville blog. Like reading all of the insightful links we’ve been posting on the Outsider. Go there now where the real Niner fans are

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Yet you post here. How loserish is that?

  26. rtfirefly says:

    A lot of homes were growing up without a daddy in Liverpool in 1960. Some without parents altogether. WWII was no joke.

    This is John’s song about an orphanage nearby his childhood home.

    In his acid phase.

  27. rtfirefly says:

    John discovered that English schoolchildren were getting classes in, among other things, finding meaning in Beatles song lyrics.

    There’s a nasty reference to the cop who busted him for pot in Paris, but otherwise the lyrics are deliberate nonsense.

    Figure that out! Ha!

  28. rtfirefly says:

    But if you want something not studio produced and raw emotion, it’s hard to beat Janis Joplin. She did not perform Me and Bobby McGee at the Monterey Pop Festival. rather she perfomed Ball and Chain. But I prefer this Beatles song:

  29. rtfirefly says:

    This has always been my favorite Beatles song, a middling early one. Ah, me, the romantic!

  30. Winder says:

    RT- Magical mystery tour is by far my favorite Beatles album. I always thought the Sgt. Pepper album was part one of a two set record and Mystery tour was the second part. They could color a tune like nobody I ever heard before or since. The only group that comes close is Pink Floyd

  31. unca_chuck says:

    RTF, my sister was at the 1968 Monterey Pop Festival and I am so jealous of her. If I could time travel, that would be one of my destinations. She also went to Altamont. . . Think I’d skip that one . . .

  32. unca_chuck says:

    This is funny as hell, but the singing is spot-on Cocker.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    One last one . . . an old Doors promo video.

    • Winder says:

      One of my favorites

      • Winder says:

        I could never really figure the Doors. I just couldn’t stay that loaded. Like a lot of groups most of Their stuff was sexually motivated

      • unca_chuck says:

        Yeah, like a lot of groups back then, the late 60s were not the peace love and granola so fondly looked back on. That went the way of a few stray bullets. After 1967 shit was getting dangerous and the City was filled with panhandling drugged-out children looking for things they couldn’t find. The Doors certainly reflected their times what with the war in Viet Nam, rioting over that, turmoil in most college campuses, and race riots to boot. Ithink they tapped into the dark danger and excitement of the times better than most.

        By the time Morrison Hotel came out there was blood in the streets . . .
