You probably have seen this already, but if you haven’t, here’s the deal. Every year, ESPN ranks all 122 American sports franchises, and this year ESPN ranked the San Francisco 49ers dead last. As in worse than every other franchise in the country. Even worse than the Oakland A’s.
ESPN bases it’s grading criteria on ownership, coaching, players, title track, fan relations, affordability, stadium experience and bang for buck. And the Niners rank lower than 104th in every single category except “title track,” because they won five Super Bowls in the ’80s and ’90s under different ownership.
Do you agree with these rankings? And do you think they will shame the Yorks into firing their son, Jed, or selling the team altogether? Why or why not?
