NFL - & others - should be open to marijuana. A proven pain-easer for injury & also more likely to make players less aggressive off-field.
Back to the stadium project... Asked Mark Davis about reports there was a deal. Davis: "I don't know where that comes from, to be honest."
Steve Kerr on decision not to trade Klay Thompson, who played well in Spain: "I felt good about that all along."
Davis said he might favor suspending DV suspects WITHOUT pay, but thinks it'll be a cleaner process with the union if money isn't an issue.
Davis on Goodell: "He made a decision, admitted he made a mistake, and he tried to go back and correct it. Yeah, I definitely support him."
I asked if Davis supports Commissioner Goodell: "Absolutely. He's dealing with something we haven't experienced before at this level...
Davis: "But I think we have to get this right, and suspension with pay in those cases is the only thing that makes sense to me right now."
Davis: "I see what the 49ers & Jed (York) are going thru & what they're saying, 'Innocent until proven guilty' & that's the American way...
Davis on the NFL's crisis. "In my mind, if somebody's accused or arrested in a domestic violence case, they should be suspended with pay...
Asked about the reported Coliseum City project "deal," Davis said the team is still working with the developer on a term sheet.
Davis generally agreed with the idea that the bye week--in two weeks--might be a good time to re-evaluate the team.
Just spoke to Raiders owner Mark Davis, who said he didn't want to comment on Dennis Allen's job status right now...
Bob Myers to Sirius XM: "I haven't had a situation with our owner where we've been at odds on anything."
Bob Myers to Sirius on his FO: "If they're not able to speak their mind in a room on a big decision, then they shouldn't be in the org."
I don't believe firing Allen would give the Raiders extra time to do a coaching search. Because I wouldn't want McKenzie doing that search.
I'm not a proponent of quick coach firings, which generally don't fix anything. But sometimes the coach goes just because somebody has to.
Let's put it this way, Raiders management is doing nothing to shoot down the assumption that Dennis Allen is coaching for his job right now.
Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie politely declined my interview request today. Owner Mark Davis has not returned a call...
“if history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten” - rudyard kipling
I asked Allen if that means he has talked with GM Reggie McKenzie, not necessarily Mark Davis this week, and Allen said: "Correct."
Asked if he's talked to Mark Davis this week, Allen said: "We have our normal chain of command in how we communicate & nothing's changed."
Dennis Allen on speculation about his job: "What matters is getting ready for the New England Patriots & that's all I'm going to focus on."
Derek Carr said several players have spoken to the team in recent days, including himself. He's definitely an emerging leader already.

Steve Kerr: "Pass the ball, everybody gets happy. You win, the media writes nice things."
Luke Walton uses his deep voice to read. The kids agree with Steve Kerr that his voice is scary.
Luke Walton said he grew up reading Berenstain Bears.
Steve Kerr said he reads every single night (novels and biographies) and is a great way for him to relax.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is scheduled to speak at Longfellow Elementary, but he might get outdone by Clifford. http://t.co/IXgpgaMjse
But maybe I'll check in with some top execs for the 49ers' official Visa disappearing act on any controversial matter.
Unfortunately, I'm going to miss today's 49ers official Sony media stonewall event.
I swear, I think some 49ers fans believe the Constitution protects their team's right to win football games. 49th Amendment?
Another one bites the dust! They coming for us...
Are schools now teaching kids that NFL eligibility is just as important as the court system? Really seems like it.
Due process as an NFL PR construct is absurd. And really, it's insulting to actual rights for people who actually are in court.
For the 1,000th time: Due process is a legal term, it is not relevant to whether someone plays a football game.
Peter Guber announced as Executive Chairman and Managing Director of the Oklahoma City RedHawks, the Dodgers' Triple-A team next season.
Maybe one of the 49ers' sponsors can line up behind the Ray McDonald PR spin. Call it the "Dignity Health due process dodge."
I've said this before, others disagree, but I believe: Trent Baalke runs all aspects of the football team and Jed York won't over rule him.
I was asked on live TV to go game-by-game through Nov 23. I had the 49ers at 7-4. From there, split with SEA, win the others, that's 11-5.
I'm focused man!!!
Festus Ezeli said he's made progress in getting the inflammation out of his shin. Fifteen months after knee surgery, he's itching for camp.

Last year's game was on a short week... 49ers' D destroyed Bradford & the Rams offense. This year it's regular rest, but vs. a better team.
This week's 49ers game in AZ reminds me a lot of last year's Week 4 game in STL, when 49ers were 1-2, Willis was out and VDavis was limited.

Emailer says I'm not qualified to write about football because I've never played/coached in NFL. Actually, neither has Goodell or Jed York.
I don't know how much longer we'll have independent journalism in the Bay Area, but I want to be doing it for as long as it exists.
When the issue got too big to contain--the Rice video--the NFL tried the same PR tricks and it wasn't enough. But they tried.
In a convoluted way, this exposed the NFL's arrogance more than anything: They figured everyone would buy their PR because so many always do
Personally, I still can't believe some great NFL reporters initially wholly bought the "due process" dodge in so many cases. Terrible.
Seeing a lot of criticism of the snuggly relationship between the NFL and some top reporters, which is worthy of examination...
This is a franchise that could a powerful, experienced, savvy president. But the Yorks for some reason have always resisted that.
