    TEMPE, Ariz. -- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says it didn't matter to him who won Tuesday's presidential election. Kaepernick said he didn't believe any of the candidates, including President-elect Donald Trump, who in the past criticized the quarterback's decision to kneel during the national anthem, would change a system that he said "oppresses people of color."

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem in each of the team's three preseason games and plans to continue to do so until he sees real change when it comes to racial oppression in the United States. "Yes, I'll continue to sit," Kaepernick said. "I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me this is something that has to change. When there's significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it's supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it's supposed...

    NEW ORLEANS – San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just a few days before Super Bowl XLVII. Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team. "I don't do the gay guys man," said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here...
  • Cowboys Win Battle of First Teamers; Niners Win Game

    The Cowboys and Tony Romo came out gunning in the first quarter. Mixing up running and passing plays, they made their way down field almost at will. The 49er defense had no answers for the dominating play of the offensive line. That was the key for Romo and company throughout the entire first half. On a few pass plays Romo dropped back and took some long looks before he decided where to execute. On one play Austin was so wide open for so long it looked like the defense did'nt even know he was there untill he made a sliding...

    With the 49ers' plan for a new stadium at Candlestick Point sunk in the mud, insiders at San Francisco City Hall are revisiting the idea of building at Hunters Point -- in an area that could be paved over with lots of parking. Here's why. Cut through all the double talk, and the 49ers' problems come down to two key points. One: All the Niners are really interested in is a new stadium and a parking lot. Despite all the smiles and public pronouncements over the years, they are not comfortable with the mega housing and retail development deal they...

    SAN FRANCISCO – An in-house video meant to prepare San Francisco 49ers">49ers players for dealing with the media backfired on the NFL team Wednesday after it was leaked to the San Francisco Chronicle. The 15-minute film, featuring racist jokes, lesbian soft-porn and topless blondes, features the team's public relations director, Kirk Reynolds, impersonating San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom in the mayor's office and other city scenes. Now the mayor and the city's gay leaders are outraged, the team's owners are embarrassed and Reynolds is leaving the organization. The Chronicle described the film and published an image showing Reynolds with the...

    <p>Granted, there is upheaval in the world and there are battles where a great deal is at stake -- life itself. All the more precious, then, the minor skirmishes on the home front that mean a great deal in a small way and remind us of how lucky we are to feel innocent hatreds, from summer to summer, at the ballpark.</p>
