I know there's always gotta be someone at the bottom of a number's race, but the 49er's cap is just way to shy of the whole 9 yards. Which is a term that derives from masonry and not football. Where one whole load from a mixer truck is used. A little out of date, due to the fact most modern concrete mixer trucks carry a max load of 11 yards. Should we start saying the whole 11 yards? For those confused, as I was, thinking it was football, they would still probably be dumbfounded wondering why not 10? Isn't that a 1st down? HaHa! I love it, keep them all in the dark! Sorry . . . useless information . . . please don't kick me out!!!
The niners dont have a full cap because they made some moves in the 90s to attempt to win super bowls, and they are still paying for it in cap now (ppl like Steve Young are still taking up cap room on that team).
Your point about ownership is valid in a place like Minnesota, but SF is stuck until they finish paying off their 90s players.
