Fans raise funds to fly anti-Baalke banner before 49ers game

Fans raise funds to fly anti-Baalke banner before 49ers game

San Francisco 49ers fans came together last season and raised money to fly an anti-Jed York banner over Levi's Stadium on three separate occasions. With the team 1-6 this year, there is a new push for a banner calling out a different member of the team’s front office.

On Monday a crowdfunding campaign was created with the goal of raising $1,076 by Oct. 28 in order to fly a banner that reads “49ers: Fire Trent Baalke” over Levi's Stadium on Nov. 6 before the team’s game against the New Orleans Saints. The fundraising goal was fulfilled in 11 hours by 58 people as it reached $1,095. 

The campaign proceeds are promised to Aerial Services of Livermore, which charges $1,024 for two hours of airtime, according to the post, and, which takes five percent of all funds raised -- $51.20.

The three banners that flew over Levi’s last season read “Jed York And 49ers Should Mutually Part Ways," "Hold Jed Accountable," and "Jed Here's Our Banner -- Where's Yours?"

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith is the subject of trade discussions, according to multiple reports.

The 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles have discussed a trade involving Smith, but a deal is not imminent, reports Pro Football Talk. ESPN reported that the 49ers are open to trading Smith and multiple teams have shown interest. The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 1.

A league source told the 49ers are neither shopping Smith nor is a trade anticipated.

Coach Chip Kelly on Monday denied a report from PFT that left tackle Joe Staley was on the trade block. He was not asked about Smith’s status with the team.

“I understand how it comes up because we’re 1-6 and Joe is a veteran player, but it doesn’t matter where you are that’s going to be speculation no matter what team you are and where you are, who are your older players,” Kelly said about the Staley report. “It’s kind of the nature of the sport we play.”

Smith is the 49ers’ third-leading receiver with 13 receptions for 199 yards and two touchdowns. Last year, Smith caught just 33 passes for 663 yards with four touchdowns in his first season with the club.

The 49ers last year signed Smith to a five-year, $40 million contract. He is signed through the 2019 season with scheduled base salaries of $6.5 million, along with roster and workout bonuses totaling $1.5 million in each of those seasons.
