Welcome it feels like our first show of the week because we only had an hour or warrior pre game yesterday and didn't have the opportunity to react to what was developing raider news which is a little bit more in focus right now we will discuss this with you and take your calls obviously dated 8957957. Now. Although we will keep aware of this at all times the pendulum. The pendulum on this story continues to swing from there is no way they're going to they're absolutely going unit will. Gionta before it's all said and done will come back to I don't think they're going before it goes back to they're definitely voting. And it's gonna go back to you may be they won't get that vote then and go back to maybe they did like this is a ticking clock and there are. So many people who react to the story in the moment as this is the moment that will define the entire process we don't know what that moment going to be. Until it's said and done so. Before you get angrier you wanna kill the messenger or you go and take to Twitter or text line to shoot down the validity of any one person who might be talking about editor of the report you didn't like Earth Day. A person is covering the story that you think is biased one way or another. We're trying to sift through all the noise to give TU the information you need today. In doing and in entertaining and informative session that is our goal Jian an Oreo examined yeah the weekend good weekend. Busy day yeah yeah so hardworking woman to my last cut like that I like that we got a hard working people here this afternoon Lotta people wanna know what the the future holes you know for the Oakland Raiders. Just open with a a really. Broad. Question. Bank of America doesn't have a branch in Oakland. Might company could you know you're gonna go and just get a bank loan. Why would you get a bang cloned from Bank of America to help northern California considering Bank of America was founded the day after the 1906 earthquake on two. Barrels and a two by four. I was a corner or new Montgomery and something. For Bank of America started right after the earthquake it was called the bank of Italy person and it turned in the Bank of America it is a distinctly. Originating from San Francisco Brandi even though they're headquartered now. On the other side of the country whatever it's just said the Bank of America founded in San Francisco. Wouldn't lend the money here at home. Now before you get angry at Bank of America let me add this. Pretty obvious Mark Davis never asked for a Bank of America loan on behalf of him staying in Oakland. And this brings us back to a resonating factor which has me hanging up on childish. Stand members who were calling last week in wanna get. You know who really think that their commitment to loving the raiders in the amount of jerseys that they bought the number of bands that they painted black with skulls on I'm in the amount of chicken guys they barbecued over the year outside the coliseum. That doesn't. Get you any closer to the truth. Then this here is the truth here is everything you need to know about the raiders today and now the pendulum is swinging. All efforts. All mean highlight that the talent size that underline it may be bold all caps president trump hash tags sad. All. Efforts. I've been focused at a town and have been for the better part of a decade. The raiders. Have Vegas in their teeth and they are not letting it go. They said that they secured financing big meetings are about to happen. Yes we all know it's still sounds wrong it feels like the wrong time to do it with all the uncertainty in Southern California at the chargers leading San Diego seems like another. Left at the altar fan base is hardly the publicity the NFL needs but the NFL as well on the go through a couple weeks of bad publicity for 750 million dollars in public funding. And it's pretty obvious. The message KC fans have not received it is you are replace a bull you are meaningless. Your family. Your tradition the amount of seasons you spent just mean nothing. Absolutely. Don't even reaching the equation as we do the math. That's how kind of business like console was this always and I know it's tough thing to hear but that's the straight skinny and you need it now. What's really really weird about this whole thing in the reason why I don't think that this is has done a good deal was it's being presented by a lot of people in the know today. As I've said gee Yana. And I know that this doesn't make me a very popular person over in raider headquarter in Alameda but if just if NFL ownership is decided Mark Davis does not belong amongst them anymore there's only one way to get him out of town and that is to prevent him from. From. Making this move. You know I mean the message to mark after he's done all of this he sounded billion dollars twice. In the desert. If through all this effort. That mark Davis and mark the Dane and all the raider bigwigs have put into this move if this movie is an okay here and now with Bank of America financing not being. A straw man but real honest to god financing. If the NFL looks at this in seems to say the ducks are in the row but were still not willing to do it it's not gonna be because there. Worried about Las Vegas. It's gonna be because they're worried about letting mark continue to sit at the table. This is a referendum. On whether or not he belongs in the club. And the raiders don't like hearing that but that's the honest to god truth to what's going on here and historically speaking. The raiders have been willing to take bad deal after bad deal to dictate your future whether it be in the immediate ward the long term. Don't let it happen again you know. They had a bad deal ONEOK when that caused them to leave for a bad deal and LA and when a bad stadium plan in Irwindale ball places was put together they go back to Oakland on a terrible deal would put the franchise and a situation to wanna go to Carson which was a bad deal. Because you're the theme that's going on here the raiders over and over again entering a deal alternately isn't very good for them at the bank loan from Bank of America. I pay them back. This is an investment this is a loan Mark Davis is gonna be on the hook for. Over a billion dollars. Are they supposed to make money if he's got to pay that not I just don't understand it but the raiders historically. I have Ben a franchise that is willing to put itself into a bad deal to get what it wants in the meantime and call it a victory. There's an awful lot of immediate satisfaction but not long term thinking to goes into some of these deals and this is such a long term move but if it doesn't make sense in the long term. One out. Vegas has one distinct advantage over Oakland. A big pile of money to throw with the NFL right now. And yes. Oakland is the right answer. It's the correct the long term answer I'm completely convinced of that but Nevada. Put its money up. Doesn't have an idea. It's not months of meetings away from happening here it is here's the apple wanna bites. Andrew Brandt. Who I respect an awful lot disguised to be you know he's trusted eased the rooster when he crows means is sun's coming up. Andrew Brandt said today reports of the raiders now having the votes to move to Vegas. Having said all along owners will not let 715 million in public money just die on the vine and now. It seems like Jerry Jones who we all know is as big of a voice there is in the room he's done an awful lot to help mark Davey sees this group. We know Jerry Jones swayed the vote from Carson City. You stand cranky in the rams getting Los Angeles. Carson not Carson City pardon me. But this is to it did look there's there's no doubt. There's an awful lot of very serious to be credited reports. Dad this looks like it's gonna happen. At some point in time we're gonna have to redefine. When exactly. The fried chicken ad hoc that. We had Jason Cole is going to be met her paid off like here's the deal it's gotta be this march 26 vote. That vote in 34 weeks from now. That's The Who gets the chicken moment. And spare yeah I think so. Who we will see we will see. Because right now season when he. Right I mean tech abated with today's news he would be right it is they winner said yes. I will be buying fried chicken if the raiders are packing their bags for Vegas. If they build a stadium on buying the chicken if they're not building a stadium he's buying the ticket. A loss for raider fans but it's a win for too fat guys who like fried chicken no matter what happens. But apparently it's very delicious fried chickens exposed degree protect. Kirk cousins to the 49ers. I see that drama is beating we will talk about that today the warriors got nineteen games remaining a very good win for them to wrap up a road trip they did it in Atlanta they did it is the hawks were. Fighting amongst themselves. And the warriors got a big one does a big boy went passes you gotta give the credit. The Golden State Warriors and how resilient they are and some guy came at me on Twitter send all stars on the court. All stars can't be resilient. There was a resilient win. Early on in that game in Atlanta. They look like a team that was on the end of a rough road trip that had seen their best player injured for the rest of the season they were not looking good cook generally. In Atlanta they end up having a really good second half. Pretty impressive. Pretty pretty impressive. That was a good win and tomorrow night it's the Celtics then after that. We got some of the four biggest nights of the year right around the corner for current warriors. This Friday and Saturday. At timberwolves at spurs those are two of the biggest games of the year. And the amount of energy they got to put into that Minnesota game certainly dictates the chance that they'll have. In San Antonio who last night got that signature moments from cool why Leonard is he's trying to throw down his MVP case. Sticks it three to beat the rockets blocks Harden on the other end it was impressive. His reward. In a cup. It was drug tested right after that. Believe we had a killer showed today -- we walk out of here and bill I dare you to your great today what a show pee in a cup. I know it's just timing and it was randomly schedule but it just doesn't look bad would you just tell me I had a signature moment in my ear and European Cup time. Axles suspicious definitely. I passed. The city of Oakland has completely dropped the ball whether the Fortress Investment Group or Floyd Gephardt or Ronnie Lott or anyone involved could have done anything different or could have done more of what they done that. Changed things are I really don't know you know I really really don't know what to tell yeah I I can tell you this. That in less Mark Davis wants Oakland. There's no chance of it happening and it is readily apparent he does not want Oakland. Dawn. You know and I got someone here already crying on behalf of the ownership same Bruce you're so wrong marking his dad tried to stay in oak land in the city of Oakland is so dysfunctional. Mom I'm here to sing the praises of the city of Oakland but I'm here to tell you did you know. You're not exploring all options to stay when you haven't had a meeting with the mayor tabled in the last five years. There is no effort. On the raiders. Being put into finding an Oakland solution. So don't tell me it's Oakland's fault that they never found one. Just set Mark Davis. Couldn't find the money two Nickels to scratched together here has found a billion dollars. Why peace. In Nevada now. And like four months. He's found a billion dollars the first billion fell through then he went out and found a billion more dollars to tell me he's incapable putting a deal would gather if this is what's going to happen. He's found the money twice there he's never looked for it here once. And that is apparent. And everyone wants to be first of who's writer who's wrong like I got a person you're saying Damon I've told you. Did they were gone you didn't listen you're delusional. How mean I know you think you got hot text descend what you really need to put the phone down. I'm the one telling use their. It and caught. And we just hope. The base day. Hope hope hope. That they look at mark is. Not fit to be amongst us and that was the best shot you've got if mark is put this deal together they're gonna deem him more than fit to be amongst them and they'll be gone. You know this is just I think 88 colossal mistake waiting to happen. That is only looking at this in short term stadium gain not long term planning I can't think. Of anything that would ruin the raider brand more than leaving Oakland again and Vegas yes it's sexy. You will be the hot nightclub. For all of five minutes and then the raiders would just be enough that you be. The Oakland Raiders will turn into the Hoover Dam real quick. I'm fascinated by the Hoover damn I'll probably watch for five Hoover Dam documentaries in my life Jian it's an amazing construction project. It. Gay life. It took life and it's a staggering. Moment of human achievement I'm fascinated by it. I've never gone a Las Vegas without saying maybe this is the time I go to Hoover Dam you know Donna Bennett who were damn. Now wants really never even with the fascination even with the fascination to get on the big Hoover Dam fanned. But come 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon my ass is getting breakfast. I'm not going anywhere and again on a plane coming and then get on a plane and come and now we're not sticking around 830 Sunday night to figure out how. Sap Las Vegas can look on Sunday evening for God's sakes get the hell out of there on Sunday. There are going to be really really really really hot. Until they have a five win season and then they won't be at all. Where is the hometown fan base that will support them there. They're leaving it. Is mole in Oakland still waiting this guy's been holding on since the last show ma oh. We'll go to you right now war. Aamir Durham and what he got to. Line has done that. Well a lot of the other they have to say about Oakland. Yeah and what it can't be can't be all. Oakland. Oakland and decide to leave Oakland then the money doing it in the that the market. So why did it well. Well it's you know a lot of fault look it's this is no it's all 100% one or the other it's like everyone understands the concept of the pie chart. And the pie chart by nature is never just one color is that would be a 100% of this is the pie you've got it to their slices to go around to who's to blame. And really the city of Oakland not being able to afford it. And the raiders ownership itself not being able to afford it it's the perfect storm of can't get things done and these two ships. Ran into each other. City of Oakland doesn't have enough money to figured out the raiders themselves don't have enough money to do it independently. So you've got basically the blind trying to help the blind see. No wonder why know can see anything. I'm sorry moan next time. You give a show call in you wait on hold for 45 minutes trying not to be out of breath. Got bit on the whole for over 25 minutes east. Out of breath. And a very interesting 24 hours for the Oakland Raiders and fans are. Sick and tired of it and I don't blame you so let me try to cheer you up just a little bit. And I'd say this. Thinking that it's an awful shame that it happened but what I told you did the big move that the cavaliers made last at all minute. Andrew Bogut broken tibia hey how about that. Stop me if you heard this one before. Andrew Bogut is injured. Injuries dictate seasons as much as anything in the NBA is much easier talent level will. We talked about it last week I don't want less basketball but the regular season if you just want to look at its cynically. Is basically an endurance test to determine who's hurt for the playoffs and who's seeded where. That is the cynical look at the regular season. Andrew Bogut broke his tibia a minute into his Cleveland tenure. A minute and not some re occurring injury Jian I'm not blow my football mind me oh my micro fracture. Now a brand new unique to this moment injury for Andrew Bogut I gotta tell you I am. As someone who covers the warriors. Not gonna lose any sleep. Just the same way is anyone who covers the cavaliers didn't lose announce asleep over Kevin Durant get hurt. What did you say I feel terrible for Bogut Bogut is. A guy that if he were not. If his career were defined by anything other than injuries and there's not a word the defines his career more than injuries that's it. The number one thing Andrew Bogut brought to the NBA was his own injuries. And it's unfortunate because it's if he would add a healthy career were looking at a hall of fame center. Hands fort work passing skills really nice touch could play could shoot a little. Huge. That's a bad luck. It's more than bad luck it's a you know this is. Eight foot it's it's one of the worst things you can say about a player really is injury prone yeah injury is injury prone those are two words you do not want attached your career. They're often thrown around before they actually really truly apply and find someone but injury prone a 100%. Deep fines Andrew Bogut. 888957957. Knows the number we got a lot of people call in and wanted to talk raiders Vegas good we're gonna have an awful lot of warrior conversation today Tom Brady wants to sell you a vegan salad for seventy box we're gonna get to that our friend Tony Bruno is gonna join us new ways to consume sports on TV it's all around us we're gonna get into what PlayStation is actually offering news the where we go about consuming sports is changing dramatically in front of us we got some ramifications. From that warrior hawks game we got the Celtics come and in town tomorrow we're gonna have ourselves a Tuesday trifecta before it's all said and done. And a Colin tapper knicks stranger things that we've been working on it Collins tenure in San Francisco was so odd. It deserves its own stranger things and we are going to have it Colin Kapanen stranger things. We're gonna played four in about twenty minutes from right now at about quarter to four. We're gonna give you a little Colin Capp predict stranger things but next your calls. Bank of America. Can make a loan to the raiders which they say pave the way to Vegas that's the way the pendulum is swinging now. There's still three weeks which means an awful lot can happen between now and then but today is a bad day. For the Oakland Raiders as we know them right now there's no doubt about that your phone calls coming up next 888957. Nine by 70. Well all this relocation news just scrolling across your television your radio your Twitter timeline your FaceBook news feeds. Let's give deal. Showing up in a raider uniform would be a positive well right now Stacy Dale's and NFL network is reporting that a so scores to beaters and said the dared to teens he's really Anderson playing for. The raiders and the Seahawks. The raiders are expected allude to lose all the twos could let's say he has. They're gonna look tuzla Pavia is to free agency. Seahawks running game wasn't nearly the same without Marshawn Lynch Peterson previously has identified the giants Buccaneers in Texans is team that he would be interest in joining but now. He would consider a pay cut. To maybe play for the patriots but to. Let let's say you was due eighteen million dollars that. The vikings said thanks for no thanks in examining American money no matter where he goes but I put. Adrian Peterson needs a raiders more than they need Adrian Peterson right now. It would be interest and would be interest thing. I tell you tee up on thinking about where I wanna sign. Between two competitive playoff bound football teams unborn of the won the might not relocate. I mean I really mean that exact. You know the whole point of don't know where you're going to be can't buy a house can't put down roots not a lot of players put down roots when they signed as free agent somewhere but. Makes it hard to plan it's uncertain assets and it's a level of uncertainty that I wouldn't want. End to be involved with earlier isn't. I'd say the raiders. Unit area. Get approval to move tonight and move to two years' time and I was saying this today don't don't think for second this is gonna land smoothly. I wonder. If the city of Oakland was still wanna victim in terror their release right there that angry I mean I could see some really spiteful vindictive. Move start to happen here. So. I don't know man I do not know how this is gonna play out. Whenever anyone speaks would grade authority that it's a done deal one way or the other. I'll caution you be have not been paying attention this story can still change three more times before now and in actual vote but. Reacting to news today. Lot of people are saying in the money looks right the deal looks like it's been salvaged. Generators are very much still on their way to Las Vegas let's go to loophole in Santa Clara loop well your not 57 game. Eight or are you today well thank you. I want to make it on the market and the stance or Europe is old and in. Or replaced here. And I I hate to agree on. To an extent they'll ever. All I don't think it raider fans can never be replaced in terms of this kind of passion. This sort of lunacy this amount of fanaticism. Like. Mark doesn't care about that. He cares about someone who might be well the paid triple face value of what you're paying right now if he can find that somewhere else that's the replace ability. The raiders will never have a black hole that matters again. They'll never have a real fan base that matters again they'll all be adoptive just got here Johnny come late leased but for the hundreds of fans who will. Have the money to fly down frequently but believe me that will get old fast then novelty. Of the Las Vegas raiders will Wear out before it even began its you can mark my words gene in Oakland Euro 957 game what's up Jeanne. And it Damon. Actually elected to Asia all over again you are. Not that long ago way and Davis was saying that it doesn't deal with adults there kissed him goodbye and that Peltz wrote is that okay. Goldman Sachs and OPEC itself. And paper rate dropped out shortly after. Insult things built and now to believe that Bank of America. That mop like. Over a billion dollars to land this guy can now only needs 600 million for the stadium and in need ought to fire him and legal case. I'm hoping that sound old station in I went into this thing could change a lot of different ways and I would think that the idea. I would neither thank you very much for the call if we know anything it's that the raiders can blow up a deal. And the eleventh hour yet just when you think you're about to cross that finish line and break the tape you trip over your own shoe lacing and every and finish the race. That's what's happened. We see the raiders so close and then beat a third team finisher in a three team race when it looked like there were out to win. That's how it worked down in LA anyway. But as it stands right now momentum looks like it is officially pointed back towards Las Vegas Vincent bonds senior. On the afternoon delight. Article order will decide when or if it goes to a vote they're strong inclination that they're going to be your recommendation here pretty soon were to go to a vote in March and at that point oh. We'll find out burger kept what were hollow virtual willing to recruit their rockers black speck. Do you think that there will be a cooperative ownership group. Your art part the part owner Stuart blocked out on what justification what the compelling reason that they know other than maybe some owners just don't want the NFL in Las Vegas ordered by nine of those that are gonna stand in the way that just because uncritical look that don't wanna be a lot they get part of that to happen. The only shot you got on and keep on come and activists is she now. What would prevent. This from happening if the money looks right is something Jian a that'll never be admitted to publicly because NFL ownership. This vindictive and calculating isn't might be isn't self destructive to the point where they would say publicly. We just don't think mark is the right got to make this move and that's why we're gonna say no. But. That could be a reality. They just would never copped to like that's something that doesn't leak until the actual vote happens remember reports were. Carson was done. And the same committee that might recommend the raiders move is the same committee that recommend the raiders and and charger deal get approved. And everyone was like all dean span Allison love him he'll have all the votes could people old dean Reynolds. Don't we have a song about that. If you could please cue that up if you could please give that up because I do believe I wrote an original song. Spontaneously. On the air about the chances. Of Deen spent those getting what he wanted. We close. To let me know when we have it meanwhile this is Paul and San Francisco all your 957 again. If so are we quick vote and luckily I accordingly while in court that would did you. On. Formidable unit with true pop up in a lot of it would it would be. Eastern. Competent and I think it would have been the model and a topic it chipped away at. Talk a good chance that I'd acquired panic he took it. I did too I. I really do too I know it's good for the warriors I know it's bad for the cavaliers but I really I feel for Bogut Ideo. Coolidge and then I'll I'll I'll I'll actually. Agree with you not the not. The later in the day to day or Oakland and at all and the generator by I do that they. By the way that I think there it is okay. But really among the countries are thinking and quite honestly I think that every Sunday it. I don't know how many great tribute gonna go to our league I think I'll be seeing. Are gonna pay top dollar to. You bet I'll I'll be here's another thing the raiders can say goodbye to along with their original fans their actual passion people who cared deeply about them the legitimacy of the black coal and all that good stuff. They can say good bye to home field advantage for ever. OK if they will be a day will be playing on the road sixteen times a year. Except of course when they go to. The Los Angeles slash San Diego Chargers which is going to be their one home game of the year. By the way here is the Dean Spanos ditty we told you about just to remind you how tenuous all these reports of everybody loves this can be. Everybody likes dean span announce dad everybody loves Greenspan knows now we get to vote secretly. That's what screw to expand house there now. So let your actual vote happen. Just remember Hillary was gonna runway in a landslide. Carson was going to be green led. There's a lot of things that reporters now about to happen it's still don't happen. When we return. Even though we got a ton of people wanna hold I'd promised it and I wanna live up to my promises and we can't spend an entire how were wondering what the raiders might do. To close out one of the weirdest chapters in Bay Area sports history we thought we would put Colin tapper nick. Too little stranger things examination. That's next here on 95 cent in the game. Ron until 7 o'clock tonight we got a big full show Florio our friend Tony Bruno joins us at 4 o'clock Marcus Thompson a little bit later we're gonna have Tim Roy. Also stop on by today and a Tuesday trifecta but. We don't want any more time passing between. College athletic officially opting out of his deal with the niners. And us looking back on what is one of the stranger. Otter careers. We've ever seen come through the 49ers franchise. It's officially time. For little Colin tapper neck stranger things. Pick number 36 through 2011. NFL draft the San Francisco 49ers select. Colin jeopardy quarterback. I think you need a guy making great plays this way this is a legitimate tool ready in rock and roll. Hardball on the best quarterback coaches in the league he's gonna have an opportunity Rose Bowl something here. And that's worse strange journey started. And date June 2011. NFL draft the forty niners traded up with a bronze goes to select Colin Cameron because the fourth pick in the second round of the rumor has it did Jim Harbaugh won it can't predict so bad they needed in the first round. GM trends help keep all night long which is why San Francisco traded up. I can't bring back Doug Allen Smith the entire 2011 season the first year under Jim Harbaugh arms on new and improved Alex with 49 is when thirteen in three bowl would lose in the NFC championship games to New York Giants otherwise known as the Kyle Williams yeah now it's playing really in an all time high there was no rush to bring Colin Cameron guy under center in 2012. However in week twelve. Alex Smith suffered a concussion in the first half of the rams game and it's happening. Finally got his shot. Colin got his first NFL start on November 19 during a Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears and it was pretty obvious. To a roaring candlestick. A new alarm. It was in town. GAAP earnings completed sixteen of 23 passes for 246. Yards and two touchdowns and it was 830 to seven laugher over what was a pretty good bears' defense on the quarterback controversy. Officially begun. The 49ers would reach the playoffs for a second consecutive year tabernacle put the lead unnoticed in his first ever career playoff start. Niners beat the Packers 4531. I can't predict sentenced NFL single game record for most rushing yards by quarterback. Yeah 181. He had 400. 44 total yards on the game with four touchdowns by far his greatest game in forty niners uniform and the promise of the future. We are excited everyone's so much in the NFC championship game can bring to the 49ers who rallied to beat the falcons 20/20 four completing sixteen of 21 for 233 yards and a touchdown. The team went head to New Orleans to take on the ravens in the Super Bowl. It's a horrible which cavernous room for a touchdown he ran for another look at the 49ers fell behind early could not come back. And from inside the five yard line Frank Gore. Never touched the ball. It was on to 2013. As defending conference champions can't predict that more tattoos there was a little bit more kissing in the by September Nagin was now officially a thing when he was still winning football games you led the 49ers in the Lambeau Field the frozen tundra and nose bleeds to be found and he beat Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the playoffs. Again the following week can't bring down tools Cam Newton and Carolina would set up the date when Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. Remember boys and girls Seahawks in niners used to be the NFL's heavyweight fight. Only got fifteen down close to the end zone even before it was all said and done. Richard Sherman and become a household name I. Rudy lost that prevented the 49ers from returning to the Super Bowl. What would you know it would be the beginning of the end. Harbaugh era the Seahawks would take over from that moment on it's the NFC west powerhouse the bloom and also came off to Catherine rose quickly. No the team was committed to them they were definitely wary of long term viability and you can see it in the paperwork is the 49ers sat down for an exciting one of the most. Teen friendly deals in the NFL history. How big my motivation is money driven this just gives me all the more reason to go out and try to prove today. I can live up to expectations second title this organization and as nice as close as possible. It wasn't just the money Colleen didn't make in his contract that started to define him on September 17 candidate was fine by the NFL for using inappropriate language on the field. On October 9 and he was fine 101000 dollars by the NFL for appearing at a postgame press conference wearing headphones from beats bytes re auto league's headphones sponsor was close. The 49ers finished. That screen 88. Do you make the playoffs for the first time since 2010. And then off season and head coach Jim Harbaugh yeah. God mutually learning. In 2016. And Japanese struggled under new head coach Jim Thompson logjam break lost his starting job to Blaine Gabbert from week nine against Atlanta 49ers and then all of a sudden announced candidate could miss the rest of the season due to an injured left shoulder that required surgery and didn't bend the diagnosed by fifteen in February 2016. Jennings said he wanted to be traded Tom Sula got canned after one year in Chip Kelly was named coach stand still hoping for the best of Colin we're excited about the prospects of Italian Catholic something that we all dreamed of Chile was it working capital NN Havana but the excitement stated he. Before it even started. Hampered by his return from surgery ending girlfriend. Who technically broken the 49ers locker room when she left olden Smith Fort Collins happening just a few years ago well Colin it's been his offseason not resigning his game but getting yeah. While as the kids say this nice and strong yeah so Afro groove. What came next it was one of the biggest NFL story lines of the year. FL quarterback is under fire this morning from making a political statement by sitting on the bench during the playing of the National Anthem. The controversy is causing some fans say jerseys on. Find me on millions of great awareness in making. No Billups was. They're loving they're going on there and just people are being held accountable floor. And this and. It's only sixteen final pre season to another cabernet acquiesced a little bit opted to needle instead of just sitting during the USC and done and got a big exists Truman US military veteran navy lawyer. But no matter how you want to look at in new conversations started. Damage had been done yeah. Nothing Colin could do on the field ever read defined him. Outside of the protest all of last season Colin definitely served his protests well. As far as the niners offensive huddle and he didn't serve well at all. Kelly named Garrett as the starter for 2016. And basically. Watched him play himself to the bench saying that cavern it needed to get stronger and healthier. That magic equation whatever the us news and five weeks six we'd seen enough of playing Gabbert. And happening made his first start of the season. And it was announced the 49ers had to restructure his contract turning it into week two year deal with the even more an escape clauses of the design. One now for Colin. Don't play and let's be honest it was atrocious and it was an all this fall on the offensive line is putrid the running game was injured. He had no one catching passes for him when he would come into town he was a one man political movement not a quarterback didn't ask leading questions to and that was probably best highlighted when he in November of 2016. Was confronted by Miami Herald reporter Armonk dose of girl who knew a little bit more about Fidel Castro. Then let's say Colin Denver. I'm not talking about Fidel Castro and it was very you know nothing about my next. We are OK hockey right underneath that even though there. OK dude is that I had Blair do you rate because okay that Martin Laird. Thank you Canadian system and I don't know driven underground literally not. You years that didn't stop Collins from rocking and T shirts and Afro picks and using his new gang green. Vigilante. Protesters personas to find him at times we'll and other times he's very attentive schoolchildren. And speaking in a manner then no one really expected from a guy. Hadn't said much during his entire career. And he long and sad season came to a sputtering and didn't from the sale of the smallest home crowds the 49ers have ever seen the year finished two and fourteen genuine desire both Trent hockey. And Chip Kelly in new machine stepped in when John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan and just a few days ago. On March 3 2017. Candidate officially opted out of his contract for the 49ers in options and as part of his restructured contract and therefore. They can get a free agent and beginning. 2070. Yeah here yeah. No matter what you thought oh no matter how you sell. Whether you were outraged. Personally thankful for college averaged protest and one thing that I think we can all agree on a states. So when it's one of the hottest journeys ever needed a 49 I had. I'm seeing here too. Active quarterback in a magnet for controversy and his future holds nothing but uncertainty. And he says his protest is over and now in America he's in worse shape than seemingly politically it's ever. The timing is odd yeah. Everything is on about Colin Catherine it Arabs it started with a roaring in San Francisco and went out with a whimper in Santa Clara. Colin can't predict and in military uniforms. Stranger things yeah. We thought that that deserved its own little stranger things segment woody weird weird career. It really was for Colin cap and Akira. Now just let you know we're open to criticism got a guy here on the tax money says hey Damon you wasted so much time put that whole thing together only need to say was it Jim Harbaugh coached an amateur awhile he made everybody better especially the quarterbacks and he left and it's. There we go that as the Jim Harbaugh stranger things that we just nailed Korea that's pretty funny. I hope you enjoyed that I hope it jog some memories those memories are now lost. Time. Collins gonna be in another uniform or maybe never in another uniform. What else. When we come on back our friend Tony Bruno will be here for a weekly hey how Loria we've got more of your calls coming up as well several people wanna commented talk about the raiders. Possibly finding their way to Las Vegas after all. That's coming up next here on 957 in the game.
