As far as San Francisco 49ers fans are concerned, team owner Jed York is persona non grata. York got rid of a very popular and highly successful coach Jim Harbaugh, in part because of an unusually bad last season. Harbaugh move to coach at his alma mater, the University of Michigan, and York replaced him with a coach under which the team has only won one of its first four games.
Suffice it to say, it’s not a good look for the team.
If you are an owner, what can you do to drum up some good will? How about giving away some free tickets? Jed York fired up the old Twitter machine to do just that.
It soon became apparent that he wasn’t going to receive an outpouring of love and appreciation. Instead, he got a lot of “feedback” from 49ers fans who wanted to express their dissatisfaction with how things were progressing in Niner-land.
To add insult to injury, the 49ers lost on Sunday.
