SANTA CLARA, Calif. Ziggy Ansah Jersey . - Prospective free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree hardly sounds convinced his future is with the San Francisco 49ers.The teams 10th overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Texas Tech, Crabtree is embracing the uncertainty as this largely forgettable season comes to a close Sunday at home against Arizona.I feel like the skys the limit for me, Crabtree said in a rare interview Wednesday at his locker. I cant wait to see whats next, the next chapter in my career.The 27-year-old Crabtree is among several players on the offensive side to have down seasons for San Francisco (7-8), which will miss the playoffs and goes into the finale on a four-game losing streak the first under fourth-year coach Jim Harbaugh, whose own future could be elsewhere.When asked Wednesday if he wants to be back with the organization next season, Crabtree was vague.It depends, I dont even want to talk about it. Its like one of those things thats got to happen. Im ready for whatever. Im not going to talk about no contract, Crabtree said.I dont know how to feel. Im ready for whatever. All Ive been doing is talking about football and plays and how to win. I havent talked about a contract, none of that.Tight end Vernon Davis, meanwhile, wants to stay put next season and well beyond, determined to make another run at a Super Bowl after this disappointing finish.Running back Frank Gore would love that, crossing his fingers the front office will keep much of the roster intact heading toward 2015 in order to chase another Super Bowl. This group planned on winning a ring this year.Thats why you play team sports, to be a champion, Gore said, and I want to be a champion. Hopefully all the key guys can be back. If all the key guys can be back, I think weve got a shot.Davis skipped the off-season sessions last spring and summer as he sought a long-term deal, but arrived on time for Day 1 of training camp in July and said he would no longer focus on his situation but commit to the team.Now, he goes into the winter with one year remaining on his contract hoping San Francisco will reward him and keep much of its roster together.I think it would be fantastic. I love being here, I love the organization, I love everything about it, Davis said Wednesday. I like the owners. I just ask that everybody is fair to each other and were all playing together, staying together. Just being a family, being one.General manager Trent Baalke said in late July that Davis is certainly one of those guys that deserves to be a 49er.The organization has given lengthy contract extensions in recent years to many of its core players on both sides of the ball.Gore said Wednesday that Baalke spoke to him Monday in the weight room and expressed interest in re-signing the franchises all-time rushing leader by saying, I want you to be a Niner next year.Im going to go out there on Sunday and play my behind off and try to get a win and end on good side, Gore said. My agent and the team will talk from there.Davis has had a quiet season a year after one of his best in the NFL. He has just 25 catches for 236 yards and two touchdowns after matching his career best with 13 TD receptions in 2013.Everybodys numbers are down, Crabtree, Frank, myself, Davis said. Were all down. Weve just got to figure it out.Another player theyd all like to see return for a 15th season is defensive end Justin Smith.If I come back, you know Ive got to call him, Gore said. Ill call him probably every day in the off-season, because Justin can still play the game at a high level.NOTES: S Eric Reid is still in the evaluation stage of his protocol following a concussion Saturday against San Diego, the third in two seasons for the 2013 first-round pick. ... The 49ers announced their team awards, including the highest honour of the Len Eshmont Award to Gore, who noted: Im happy how the team looks at me, I appreciate it. Next question. Bill Walsh Award: Antoine Bethea (voted by coaches); Bobb McKittrick Award: Joe Staley; Hazeltine Iron Man Award: Justin Smith; Thomas Herrion Mermorial Award: Chris Borland; Blue Collar Players of the Year: Justin Smith (defence), Anquan Boldin (offence), Kassim Osgood (special teams). ... Sitting out Wednesdays practice were G Alex Boone (knee), CB Perrish Cox (shoulder), RB Carlos Hyde (ankle), WR Steve Johnson (knee), C Marcus Martin (illness), Reid (concussion), DE Justin Smith (back), S Bubba Ventrone (groin). Cornelius Lucas Jersey . The question is how many minutes will be available to them and can any of their defence or goaltending provide value? Top Picks: Following a down year in 2011-2012, Matt Duchene rebounded with his highest points-per-game (0. Graham Glasgow Jersey .ca. Kerry, In the first period of Saturdays Montreal-Ottawa game, Brendan Gallagher is called for goaltender interference. Craig Anderson is outside the blue paint trying to make the save. http://www.lionsfanspro.com/Black-Barry-Sanders-Lions-Jersey.html?cat=861 . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. Neophyte NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, speaking at the IMG World Congress of Sports (which is apparently a real thing), was asked if he envisions sponsorships appearing on player jerseys in the next five years. Without hesitation he responded, "Definitely." This, of course, is not revelatory, as there has been smoke coming from this fire pit for years. But the foregone conclusion of his answer, making a foray where none of the other major North American team sports have gone, still felt surprising. He would later add fuel to the fire stating, "Its inevitable. Its such an enormous opportunity for our sponsors to connect with us. I think the marketplace is asking for it." There is something sitting uneasily in those words. First, an admission. I get it. This is the way of the world and not just in athletics. Corporate advertisements are now an integral part of bringing sports and entertainment to the masses. Ads subsidize a ton of beloved stuff from music festivals to television series to this website. I am thankful for the ad models that bring value to the advertisers and consumers alike. Frankly, at this point if an event doesnt have corporate sponsors it feels amateur to my eye. But my beef is that the NBAs latest revenue tool doesnt arrive with even the most basic pretence of being a value add for the consumer, and at a time when the league is massively, historically profitable. It isnt even a plea from the league to fans to understand that novel revenue tools are needed to sustain stability or whatever. Its just that "the marketplace is asking for it." (Quick note before further maligning the Commish. He did admit yesterday that maybe the whole t-shirt-as-jersey experiment the NBA launched towards the end of last season isnt a lock to pan out. Phew.) The precedent of sponsored jerseys has long been established in countless sports from international soccer to Nascar. (This is apparently a Liverpool FC jersey for kids though that wouldnt have been my first guess.) Even sibling leagues, the WNBA and NBA D-League, have encouraged and profited from jersey sponsorship for several years. Um, but when Commissioner Silver says "the marketplace is asking for it" he is hedging on what the marketplace actually is. Shouldnt the marketplace consider the biggest stakeholders and contributors in the hard-earned dollars-to-NBA equation (AKA the fans)? Numerous related tweets and blogs have erupted inn the past few days concerned about the same distractions 1981-me dealt with. Matthew Stafford Jersey. . But despite a tendency to stand in solidarity, I find myself less than concerned. My focus is not so much aimed at the inevitable uniform developments, but more on predicting the next step. Where will the advertising stop? If the NBA allows the final frontier of their reach, the players clothes, to be monetized by sponsors, how much would it diminish their capacity to limit players from earning off their own skin? Players are already more or less free to cut private sponsorship deals in practically every segment of product or service. Wouldnt the league erode their own ethical (read: judicial) high ground that might have otherwise prevented a player from tattooing an ad on their neck or sleeving their arms with monthly specials? With the next collective bargaining session set for three years from now, it is altogether possible that the questions raised by these types of sponsorships will be debated for the first time. What is without question is that how to divvy up the new-found revenue from jersey ads will loom large. I dont know a ton about the inner-workings of the mind of agents, but I suspect they dig on money and material if HBOs Entourage has taught me anything. What is to keep those agents from speculating on the next set of potential revenue tools? This new territory is, of course, a way for neophyte commissioner, Adam Silver, to make his mark on the league and, more importantly, to get in the good graces of team owners and league sponsors. I do not have a problem with these tactics as they are baked into his job description. But when the final vestiges of the basic game have to share space with sponsors who subsidize it, and in a time when the NBA is flourishing, I havent heard a word on what we fans get out of this latest version of the marketplace, other than a personal expectation that whats to come would have blown 1981-mes head straight off. Gallays Poll #4 Where should the NBA draw the line on advertisements? a) A small patch on the jersey is no big deal. But thats it.b) I dont mind if they re-name the Raptors with pretty much any corporate identity. But thats it.c) With so many inked players, I have no problem if Birdman becomes Kentucky Fried Birdman. But thats it.d) The back of the jersey is the future of innovation as Metta World Artest demonstrated. Lebron Jameson Irish Whiskey would move merchandise.
