Coming off Sunday’s thrashing of the Eagles, the San Francisco 49ers are riding high. Naturally, we had to have 49ers +/- host Tim Kawakami on to discuss a variety of Niners and Niners adjacent topics. Of course, given Tim’s status as the best sports writer in the state over the last two decades, we also had to get into why the industry isn’t doing a better job delivering a product TK’s succeeding with. Topics include but aren’t limited to…
Why LA-based sports writers tend to leave sports writing
Tim wrote a Brock Purdy column that might be his most read ever
TK’s thoughts on 49ers fans getting mad at Purdy doubters like Steven Ruiz
Is Trent Williams the most valuable Niner? Do offensive linemen get their proper due?
If customers are flocking to this Niners content and John Canzano is crushing it in the Pacific Northwest, then what is the sports writing industry missing?
