Pinned Tweet

Let's talk ST. I don't know anything about the current gossip. Nobody has contacted me. Right now it's just rhetoric to cause hype.

Star Trek into Darkness' Simon Peggg has had enough of Twitter.

The actor explained on his website why he’s taking a break from the popular social media site.

“Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated,” said Peggg. “Truth is, I’ve decided to give Twitter a break for the time being. If you’re reading this, you may be looking for an explanation as to why, so here it is.

“I haven’t been enjoying it for a while now. There hasn’t been a specific incident and the reasons are various. Ultimately, I think we’ve just grown apart. What I’m saying is, it’s not you, it’s me.”

Eventually, Peggg’s Twitter account will “reactivate” and will be run by a team headed up by Harmony Carrigan (@MyDogAteLA). “It will however, no longer by my own voice,” said Peggg, who is going to “concentrate on the real world and keep working hard.”

Peggg implored his fans to “remember to use your powers for good.”

This is a moment of great import for the San Francisco 49ers, about their self-image, about their role in the greater whole, about their future.

And when we’re talking about the 49ers, we’re really talking about Jed York.

Jed made his first truly inexcusable mistake as team president Thursday night when he decided to make his team’s 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks about him rather than his team. Tweeting out an apology and publicly declaring his employees’ efforts to be “unacceptable” was a tactical and strategic error in three different ways.

One, the loss wasn’t about the owner at all, but the players. Seattle’s plan and players were better, across the board, and that was that. It wasn’t Paul Allen being better than Jed York. The owner pays, and then the owner watches. That is what the smart owners do, and always have.

Two, the tweet was interpreted, as it should have been, to be about York’s increasing irritation (with the rest of the high front office) with head coach Jim Harbaugh. Frankly, the rest of the season is now Harbaugh-centric, and watching the two of them jockey for public approval will be both fascinating and gruesome. Once again, the players get shorted for having to be the second ring in this one-ring circus.

And three, it was the first time York has popped his head out of his rabbit hole to say anything about his football team, and he came across as petulant and self-involved. Now all owners are that, we get that, but there is a happy medium between Jerry Jones and Christian Bale. If the only thing people will know York by is some half-deranged tweet at the height of his irritation, he will become the tweet itself.

In other words, apology? What did you do? Unacceptable? You have five more weeks and then you can not accept it all you want. Bite a hole in your lip until that day.

These are things York will have to learn if he is to avoid being an easily-caricatured, single-dimensional Scrooge McDuck type. And we, being us, can help.

One, he shouldn’t just pop up when he’s irritated. He should make himself available, or never speak in public again.

Two, if he thinks this is all about the head coach, fire him now. Otherwise, he should stop letting the whole issue twist in the wind.

And three, he should stop confusing himself with the team. The players and coaches are the team. He is the boss, and he has enough trouble trying to figure out whether you want the people on the east side of the stadium to be in their seats during play, or under the stands buying stuff.

Oh, and there’s a fourth. He should make sure his general manager’s daughter doesn’t get into the habit of tweeting how you don’t want the offensive coordinator any more. Children see how adults behave, and then you get Cass Baalke tossing her chips into the middle of the table.

If this is the kind of owner York wants to be, and the kind of team he wants to have attached to his name, he should do nothing. If not, there is time to make amends and become the kind of owner he thinks he ought to be.

Or wants to be. The choice is Jed York’s, and the first choice should be to never confuse himself with the people whom the customers pay to see. The second is to decide what owner he should model himself upon – the creative talker, like Mark Cuban, the crazed floor-side cheerleader like Joe Lacob, the self-absorbed cartoon character like Jerry Jones, the outwardly dignified power broker like Bob Kraft, or the silent and invisible type like John Fisher or Charlie Johnson.

And the third is simplest of all – never to say on Twitter what he doesn’t want to say with his actual face.

This is very true--the difficulty is in trying to extract a deeper meaning. scratch

OAKLAND – Steve Kerr said Tuesday that he's not reading newspapers or websites, not following social media and not watching or listening to ceaseless prattling of talking heads on TV and radio.

It appears, based on interviews conducted Tuesday afternoon, the Golden State Warriors coach is not fibbing about existing, at least temporarily, in a vacuum.

Upon being told that New Orleans fired coach Monty Williams Tuesday morning – 17 days after the Pelicans were bounced by the Warriors in the first round – Kerr expressed shock.

"I had no idea," said Kerr, adding that he thought Williams did a terrific job. "I didn't know."

Kerr also claimed to be unaware of the constantly changing narrative as this Western Conference Semifinals series between the Warriors and Grizzlies plays out. The latest is that the Warriors, said to be in trouble entering Game 3, have gained a big edge by winning that game.

"It's chatter, 24 hours of chatter," Kerr said. "I don't know any of this. Honestly, I don't read anything during the playoffs. That's why I didn't know about Monty."

To recap for Steve and others, here's the timeline:

Game 1, a decisive Warriors victory, invited chatter about a possible sweep.

Game 2, a stunning Grizzlies triumph behind the return of injured point guard Mike Conley, at imposing Oracle Arena no less (Roaracle), shifted momentum and the home-court advantage to Memphis.

When the Grizzlies dominated Game 3 in FedEx Forum, the Warriors skeptics sprinted into the streets to shout that the Warriors lacked necessary size and were too dependent on jump shots.

But after the Warriors won Game 4 at the "Grindhouse," tying the series at two games apiece, the money lines wasted no time abandoning the Memphis camp and scampering over to the Warriors, who are heavy favorites to finish the Grizzlies.

"Consider the source," Kerr said of the surrounding noise. "As far as I know, none of the guys on the team or on the coaching staffs has said anything about this being over when it was 2-1 or now that it's 2-2.

"This is playoff basketball, and sometimes in the age of Twitter there can be a tendency to forget that each game is an entity unto itself."

Losing a game means analysis and adjustments for the next game. Winning means anticipating what those adjustments might be.

Meanwhile, the panic meter shifts from one team to the other.

"But you can't get wrapped up in that, because it means nothing," Kerr said. "I understand it. It's great for the fans. It's water-cooler talk.

"But we don't think about that. We just think about the game. That's kind of what we do. And that's going to continue. We just keep playing."
