Besides, both teams are managed by ego-driven megalomanics with no sense of propriety, you tell me which has worse people in charge. Only Jed York is the exception there, he's new on the job. See my earlier post on how his promotion into the front office has helped the team.
I think McCloghan's divorce is behind his sudden departure. He has a huge salary & probably a big financial stake in the team that could be community property under CA law & he's covering his ass on his attorney's advice.
Although the Niners board might already be semi set, i think its pretty clear that this is Singletarys show to run now.
All Dr. York does now is scheme & connive to put that new Santa Clara stadium deal together but it's been croaked by the awful economy.... he is IMO living in denial on the issue. Jed is green & still in his 1st yr on the job, but he shows great promise -- 180 out from the leftover Walsh appointees like Terry Donahue, who had the worst drafting the NFL for yrs & yrs there.
