On the most recent Sal and Steiny podcast, the boys talk about an interesting column by San Francisco Chronicle columns Scott Ostler. In that story, Ostler suggests that the York Family -- which owns the 49ers -- might be tempted to sell now that the team has hit upon such hard times.
For sure, the 49ers are struggling right now, with a 4-9 record and a stadium that is rarely full. But is Larry Ellison really a legit option? Sal and Steiny talk about how realistic it is that the 49ers might be sold ... and, if so, when.
The Warriors' winning streak to start the season is now over at 24, so where do they go from here? Is 73 wins -- which would be the most in NBA history -- within their sights? The season, in essence, is just getting started for Golden State even though it feels like it's been going on for a while now.
The Sal and Steiny show took it on the road this past weekend, and brought that experience to Podcast No. 48. Sal and Steiny spent some time at the Chiefs-Raiders tailgate and game on Sunday and got lots of perspective on Oakland's football team.
The Raiders had a tough loss to the Chiefs, but there seems to be an understanding that this team is trending upward. One team we don't have to worry about trending upwards is the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors are now 22-0, for goodness sakes. That's the best start in any professional sport of all time. Are you kidding me? Steinmetz, who covered the Warriors for well over a decade, got to thinking about how everything changed for the Warriors when they finally traded Monta Ellis.
Trading Ellis, Steinmetz says, allowed Curry to become the star he is today.
Lastly, what the hell was Jed York thinking by his snide tweet after the 49ers' win over the Chicago Bears -- a win that gave the 49ers a 4-8 record? Oh, brother.
