In Jed York Trent Baalke 49ers Press Conf Lowell Cohn Out Of Line – Video
In Jee York Trent Baalke 49ers Press Conference Lowell Cohn Out Of Line.
The press conference held by 49ers President Jed York and General Manager Trent Baalke on Black Monday and to talk about the release of Jim Harbaugh was a disaster. There is no way to get around the fact that Jim Harbaugh should not have been allowed to leave the 49ers.
But he was.
Everyone is upset but that is no reason to be nasty to Jed York and yet that is what Press Democrat columnist Lowell Cohn was. If you watch the video Lowell takes Jed to task for a Twitter tweet Jed issued apologizing for the 49ers performance.
I understood Jed’s motivations at the time. He was pissed the Seattle Seahawks wiped his 49ers all over the floor of their own brand new stadium. The tweet was kind, I thought.
But Lowell said to Jed that he should learn class. That was bad.
I am not Jed York’s buddy but I can say he and his father have been nothing but kind and classy toward me. Did not matter if I was trying to bring the Super Bowl to Oakland or covering an NFL meeting.
To me the sports media should always be classy toward the people it covers. Lowell crossed that line. Jed did not deserve that.
