08:01 AM ET 03.14 | Jed York joined many NFL owners with a statement addressing the lockout. "As you might expect, Trent Baalke and [coach] Harbaugh, as well as their respective staffs, are working tirelessly to prepare for the upcoming draft. And, as in recent years, we will be inviting you to participate in the draft weekend excitement with our annual Draft Contest and Draft Day Party, which will be held on Thursday, April 28, 2011 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. In fact, to every extent possible, we will be operating with a business-as-usual attitude. ... Throughout these labor proceedings, I will be committed to keeping an open line of communication with our entire fan base. Like me, you are all true fans of the NFL, so I encourage your patience and understanding during this time. And, of course, I thank you for your continued support of the San Francisco 49ers."

This is good to know for all Niner fans, because they'll need a lot of patience.

Trying to encourage my patience is a waste of time. I have none, especially for the overpaid whiners on both sides of this labor debacle. Do the deal, already.

Completely agree.

The sooner they get this dispute settled, the sooner we can get to talking about actual football. Period. End of story.

No ****. Since they couldn't win that sorry division last year patience is probably in short supply in the bay area. But there is Oakland. Ahhh...never mind!

Most fans are feed up with the salaries and money that players and owners make. I just want to hear this has ended so I can watch football on Sunday.

No shots at Oakland. They finished better than expected and the niners worse than expacted. Remember this is bash the SF team. We can bash the idiot Raider owner later. Thank you for patience.

The 49ers' QB situation alone makes this team worth bashing.

Wow, which unemployed politician did they hire to write that drivel?

And how much are they charging for the Draft Day Party?

well DD...if they are "operating as business as usual" they will be overcharging for everything!

York Peppermint patty also asks for your Patience!

Does the menu for the Draft Day Party include sardines and other recently obtained small fish?

March 14, 2011  08:51 AM ET

That Draft Day Party looks like an excellent opportunity for fans to show both parties how disappointed we are with both sides in this labor dispute--by not attending. In fact, the NFL draft should be boycotted. The simplest way to show these millionaires fighting with Billionaires is to speak in a language that they understand...money.

Harbaugh looks like an unemployed politician in that pic. Maybe he did it.

Thats nice, but York is just a figurehead. Always was. The ultimate still living your parents basement experience.

"Jed York became the Team President / Owner and his parents became co-chairmen responsible for providing resources and maintaining their role of interacting with other owners and NFL executives."

SHUDDUP.

If he didn't have a uncle who bought the team and then handed it to his sister, who in turn appointed her son because neither her husband or herself had ever picked up a football. Jed York would be a Host at Denny's.

The old saying " What if you gave a party and nobody came" ? By fans boycotting, it will make both sides get their pens out of their pockets. Question is how many tickets were sold to the Draft already and I wonder if those people can get their money back.

You got it. He was a history / finance major at notre dame. Went to Wall Street and they got him out of there before he could do too much damage.
He has no more say in the 49ers than a parking attendant. Just better seats. Eddie DeBartfelon is not far away.
