    The 49ers have ejected defensive lineman Ray McDonald following new sexual assault allegations that surfaced earlier this week.  On Tuesday, police served a search warrant to the player's Silver Creek Valley home, after receiving reports from an alleged assault victim at a local hospital. This investigation came months after the Santa Clara District Attorney's Office decided it didn't have enough evidence to prosecute McDonald on domestic violence charges involving his pregnant fiance. All of that suggests the team may be taking a harder line on assault and domestic violence charges, or at…

  • Giants should look to Scherzer

    Well, so far, it's been a tough offseason for the Giants as they've failed at retaining Pablo Sandoval and came up short in the bidding for the top left-hander on the marker, Jon Lester.In fairness to them, money was not an issue in either case, as they outbid both the Red Sox and Cubs for Sandoval and Lester, but the two just chose to take a different course. In Pablo's case, he wanted the bright lights and the challenge of playing for an East Coast powerhouse. I'm not quite sure why Lester choose Chicago over San Francisco though, as he's from the North West (Washington) and the Giants…

    With Pablo Sandoval visiting Boston this week, it caused quite a stir on the East Coast and has every media outlet predicting the free agent third basemen will land with the Red Sox.Now, the Giants are certainly not out of the running, but based on every indication being made from Pablo's camp and the Giants' behalf leads one to believe that the headlines are most likely true. The San Diego Padres have made a late push here as well, and although they're likely third in line behind Boston and San Francisco, their interest likely jacks up the price just a little bit. My guess is that whatever…

However, as they try diligently to persuade their incredibly popular third basemen into returning, they've also begun to ponder over some of the outfield options that are on the market.I don't think the market for Sandoval was quite as big as The Panda was anticipating, but apparently their is at least one other team who's interest is rivaling the Giants, and that is Boston Red Sox.

I think that was the big turn of the series, or at least I'm hoping it was. Had the Royals held on to win that…

San Jose police said they were investigating the assault of a woman seeking treatment at a hospital on Tuesday when officers determined that McDonald might have been involved in the incident.

    The San Francisco 49ers dumped veteran defensive tackle Ray McDonald on Wednesday after police said he was the focus of a sexual assault investigation, the latest to hit the NFL. The National Football League team's general manager Trent Baalke said the 49ers notified McDonald and his agent that his contract was terminated. The team had stood by McDonald after he was arrested in August on charges of domestic violence, which were dropped on November 10 due to insufficient evidence. Despite criticism, the 49ers allowed McDonald to continue playing during that investigation.

It is quite a turnaround for the team that most NFL pundits where writing off a couple of months ago. Sitting at a miserable 3-3 record after six games and amidst reports of a dressing room that was becoming discontent and disinterested, the Seattle Seahawks were labelled a crisis club by the media.

But, following a regular season in which the Gamecocks opened ranked in the top 10 nationally only to limp to the finish line with a 6-6 record, their performance in a minor bowl game is not the biggest topic of discussion surrounding the football program.

On Monday, the NFL’s head of officiating, Dean Blandino, said the wrong call was made, reports 247 Sports. “It’s close, but when you look at it on tape, Moody’s head is up, he hits with more of the side and the facemask to the body of the quarterback, and so, in our review, with the…

  • Michigan offers Jim Harbaugh six-year deal

    17 Dec 2014 | 4:52 pm
                Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports According to Joe Pequeno of CBS5 in Arizona, Michigan has offered San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh a six-year, $49 million deal to coach the Wolverines. Harbaugh had a chance to leave Stanford to take over at Michigan following the 2010 season but instead chose to take over the 49ers. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapport, Harbaugh has not given Michigan a “definitive no.”  At $8 million a season, Harbaugh would be the highest paid coach in college football, more than Alabama’s Nick Saban, who earns over $7 million per year.

    17 Dec 2014 | 4:36 pm
    Colin Kaepernick and Derek Carr are similar in many ways. Both are second-round picks, play in the Bay Area, are young quarterbacks and have pronounced strengths and weaknesses. Carr is a rookie with the Oakland Raiders and has started all season, unseating veteran Matt Schaub in the preseason. The former Fresno State star has provided Oakland fans with hope that he’s the franchise quarterback the Raiders have not had since Rich Gannon, and perhaps the first home-grown answer since Ken Stabler. Despite playing without any weapons around him and a shaky offensive line, Carr has thrown for…

Wow. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 17, 2014 Earlier this month it was reported Harbaugh wouldn’t take the Michigan job after meeting with the school, but obviously $48M could change that.

  • Four College Degrees (I’m Guessing) Play Frogger with 30 MPH Traffic on Masonic to get to Trader Joe’s #100

    sfcitizen
    17 Dec 2014 | 9:16 am
    TweetThis crossing was particularly arduous for those involved – it took about 90 seconds of waiting and sprinting. The speed limit is 30 MPH, but of course some cars might be going faster. If you want to get into mean, median and mode, well, an average speed would be in the single digits, due to all the stalled traffic waiting to get into the notorious TJ’s Masonic parking lot.   Let’s talk about Human Nature. These humans already know what they’re supposed to do – that’s heading south to Geary, waiting a while for a green and then heading back up…

  • Ed Reiskin Refuses to Comply with the SFMTA Citizens Advisory Council, So Let’s Run a Trial on Masonic Ourselves

    sfcitizen
    17 Dec 2014 | 7:51 am
    TweetHere’s the Citizens Advisory Council’s recommendation that Ed Reiskin, operator of America’s slowest and least efficient big-city transit system, has refused: “Motion 140122.01 - The SFMTA CAC recommends that the peak hour restrictions be repealed on Masonic Avenue between Geary and Fell Streets, with the objective to measure traffic impacts on the 43 Masonic prior to the implementation of the Masonic Avenue street design project.” Why did he do that? Well, because a “success” for him is the SFMTA spending the money it’s been given to…

  • Dancer, Prancers & Vixens storm the Nourse (Review)

    Cy Ashley Webb
    15 Dec 2014 | 11:09 am
    The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus just knocks you to your knees: first in gratitude that they’re so damn good, and second because you’re doubled over in laughter at their sartorial choices. Plaid indeed! A sea of plaid, 260 strong… eliciting a response like shockwaves through jello. The SFGMC shockwave began even before their Dancers, Prancers & Vixens took the stage at the Nourse. The first inkling came when roughly 1/3 of their number streamed down every aisle where they remained for the first few songs, including Sing Noel and Gloria Fanfare, before joining compatriots on…
  • How to stream Cirque du Soleil ‘KURIOS’ soundtrack

    Monica Turner
    11 Dec 2014 | 3:45 pm
    Cirque du Soleil knows a thing or two about spectacle. I think that’s possibly one of the least controversial things ever written. But not only are the Quebec troupe’s shows fantastical, and visually astonishing, they feature equally unforgettable–and often incredibly immersive–soundtracks and musical numbers. KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities recently premiered in San Francisco (review), and will soon be making its away across the U.S. and Canada. Those who want to a sneak peek behind the scenes of KURIOS can go backstage at the Grand Chapiteau at AT&T Park…
  • Food & Wine Watch: Masters and Makers @ Meritage in Napa

    The iconic Grape Crusher in Napa. See this… and so long stress. If there’s one food and wine event you must — need — to attend in 2015, is should be this one. Masters and Makers @ Meritage (see full itin below), only in its second year, is special for several reasons. The quality is palpable: Stag’s Leap Wine, Quintesa, Trinitas. And as you might expect there’s a winemaker dinner (in the Meritage wine cave), featuring a food and wine “journey” by none other than executive chef Krisztian Karkus. Then there’s the location. Masters and…

  • Brian Copeland’s ‘Jewelry Box’ at the Marsh (Review)

    8 Dec 2014 | 11:47 am
    Brian Copeland presents a scene in which his grandmother drives six-year-old Brian to a job in the World Premiere of THE JEWELRY BOX, Copeland’s one-man holiday show playing November 28 – December 27 at The Marsh San Francisco. Brian Copeland’s been busy this year. In addition to his KGO radio show, he reprised Not a Genuine Black Man at the Berkeley Rep, brought us Scion, a grisly real life story about entitlement and the murder of three San Leandro meat inspectors in 2000, and even took time an interview with Loni Stark. Fortunately, it doesn’t end there, as Copeland’s The…
