    Couple cameos from Jerry, and of course 'the catch'.

    It was evident that Eddie and Bill had bumps in the road in their professional relationship. Just look at Bill after 10 years of being with the 49ers and he got really old looking really quick.

    I have never seen an owner since that would invest so much into a sports franchise to obtain the pinnacle of success. He was truly one of the greatest owners in league history. An owner that would spend whatever it took to win in a time in the NFL when that was possible.

    Yeah, except he cheated his fellow owners.

    After Debartolo left Jim Drunkenmiller walks into John Yorks' office asking for the under the table payout Eddie promised him so they could get under the cap in 2004.

    Heck of a guy.

    I've enjoyed every single one of these shows.

    Give the creator of these an Oscar. Especially for the Kurt Warner and Walter Payton ones.

    ..exactly,Debartolo was a true scumbag and wise guy. He had his own salary cap in the 1994 season and who knows when else.

    He and Policy were a couple of crooks. I have no praise for them at all.

    Interesting with all the opinions on the thread (I knew nothing about the 49ers FO back then, I just kept up with the Cowboys, and not like I do now), that Jerry and Snyder both stated they'd like to have him back in the NFL as an owner.

    He didn't like the salary cap either. By the way, even though i couldn't stand the guy, that was a good video.

    My best man at my wedding was their main "off site security" guy. Their "on site" guys were out of this world mafia types. All mob money ran the 49ers.
