49ers' personal foul / Team's in-house training video includes lesbian porn, racial slurs, barbs at Newsom

Wow, no wonder the 49ers suck. They spent too much time on this offensive piece of garbage and not enough time on trying to get better on the field. Can you really make a video with gems like this in it, and expect to keep your job?

"Tim Latte (Rattay, a Niners quarterback). He feel good now. He feeling good. No plactice with the team, so most of the time he play with himself."

Another show stopper: "49ers love being in community. Very patriotic . . . support president and his George Bush erection."

"Erection?" Reynolds asks.

"Yes," the Chinese man responds. "It say, 'You like Bush -- then you like his erection.'

"My name is Suck Hung,'' the Chinese man says as he's leaving. "My brother's name is Suck Young -- my whole family suck."

And the funniest thing I saw in it was this advice it offered to players:
"You do something controversial, you say something controversial, it will have an impact on this team. So remember, be mindful of your actions."

Say for example like creating an orientation video with racial slurs, parodies of gay weddings and other controversial topics? How do you produce something like this and put that line in it without giving it a second thought?

This is hilarious. I've always hated the 49ers, but it's been hard lately since they suck so bad. Nice to have other reasons to hate them besides The Catch. I had no objection the lesbian porn, though.

UPDATE: Ok, I saw the video. This thing is completely inappropriate, but the offensive parts are far from the worst thing about this piece of garbage, it was just poorly done and unprofessional on any level.

First of all, the guy is acting like he's the mayor giving a tour of the city, which is fine, but along the way he is pointing out to the players things that the team can do for them. Why would the mayor be doing that?

Second, probably the worst thing about this is that there didn't appear to be a script, maybe a rough outline at best. The guy kept saying the same things over and over again. It was really hard to watch.

Finally, the most offensive segment didn't make any sense, aside from the offensive parts. The segment was supposed to be about how the team could help you deal with the media, but the guy would say (again, over and over) that they "read everything" then follow it up each time with, "so let us know if you see anything inaccurate." Well, if you read everything, why the fuck do you need them to let you know when they see something inaccurate? Wouldn't you have already read it?

Apparently, any money spent on the production of this thing was wasted on strippers. Anyway, no comments on this? Slack?
