Longtime San Francisco 49ers announcer Gary Plummer has been fired by the club shortly after a podcast of a graphic, sexually explicit interview he gave to the Bay Area radio show “Lady Brain” on the Internet.
In the interview, the now 51-year-old former Niner linebacker talked about 1) his open ’80s marriage and all the chicks he banged 2) an instance where a 49er player had sex on the team bus with the whole 49ers squad and the player’s family watching and 3) the correct way to perform oral sex.
It turns out Plummer was fired only PARTLY for his sex comments.The club is drawing an enormous amount of heat for the other “half” of the reason he was fired-for criticizing the team on-air when they were 0-5.
Things get so heated on the San Francisco 49ers sideline between coach Mike Singletary and qb Troy Smith Sunday that receiver Ted Ginn Jr. (Smith’s college teammate) tried to stuff a towel in the quarterback’s mouth. Smith had just thrown an interception.
Wide receiver Michael Crabtree has finally ended his holdout. The first round draft pick signed a contract today with the San Francisco 49ers. According to several national and 49er blogs, the signing was made possible by one man. That would be ’80s rapper MC Hammer.
It’s not just the blogs that are getting in on Hammertime. The USA Today is reporting that Hammer was directly involved in the negotiations and literally had a seat at the table in meetings between Crabtree and Niners president Jed York. Meanwhile, 49er beat writer Matt Maiocco posted on his Twitter account that, before the signing, he overheard Crabtree turn to MC Hammer and say, “Get it done.”
MICHAEL CRABTREE: THE GLOVES ARE OFF
THE MICHAEL CRABTREE OVEN MITTS “AS SEEN ON TV” IS NOT EXACTLY A BIG SELLER
CNBC sports business writer Darren Rovell points out that rookie wide receiver Michael Crabtree’s contract holdout hasn’t exactly helped him in his marketing efforts. Crabtree is already one of the longest holdouts in NFL rookie history after being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers.
Rovell says sales of Crabtree’s replica 49er jersey ($80 a pop) have come to a “screeching halt.” Rovell also points out that the value of Crabtree’s football cards have also gone down. Crabtree also currently has ZERO endorsement deals.
If Crabtree doesn’t sign by November 17th, he may go into next year’s NFL Draft.
FAIL! CONDOLEEZZA RICE LOOKING TO JOIN THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
There are reports that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice may soon be named as the team president of the San Francisco 49ers. The NFL Network reported Sunday that the football team is interested in speaking to Rice about a “high-level position within the organization.”
Adam Schefter of The NFL Network says the team believes Rice would be valuable in helping them secure funding for a new stadium. Rice had served as a provost at Stanford before embarking on her political career in Washington.
Yahoo! and ESPN both had followup stories on Rice.
