The worst time for this

Paul KasprzakContributor IMarch 18, 2010

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter San Francisco 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan has been put on temporary leave.

For the 49ers to get rid of their general manager, with a little over a month until the National Football League’s Draft, is one of the worst things to do.

According to reports, the reason for the split is due to personal reasons.

It wouldn’t surprise me that the reasons for the pissing match will be over something stupid.

For this to be happening in the middle of March shows how bad ownership of the team is.

I have read articles before on San Francisco based media outlet’s websites that 49er fans were already upset with ownership before this incident.

I bet the calls for the York family to sell the 49ers are already rolling into sports talk radio stations.

In the end, 49ers ownership should have reallty kept their mouth shut until after the Draft when front office overhauls are suppose to be done.
