Golden Nuggets: Here Fooch Comes To Save The Day

Fooch's Note: First, the Nuggets title should be sung to this tune. Second, Ninjames is out and I'm handling the Nuggets for the day. Big thanks to him for getting the structure set up after the jump. He had begun the Nuggets last night so the following paragraph is what he had to say.

Good morning folks. I'm starting these early because I have to wake up very early to take care of things and I'm a little ... let's call it "woozy," at the moment, so I don't have much actual, factual commentary on the 49ers to grace you with. They signed a kicker, but we all expected this. I believe they will beat the Buccaneers on Sunday, and I believe they'll do it handily, by a couple of scores. Again, that's just me. Either way, I don't have much time so I'm going to just get to your links. Enjoy.

CSN broke news that the 49ers players voted unanimously to give the NFLPA permission to decertify the union. It's primarily a procedural move because if the union couldn't decertify it couldn't sue the owners if a lockout was instituted. (CSN Bay Area)
