Oh, No, 49ers, Not You Too!

Just when you thought you had seen everything, there is now a tech-related age discrimination lawsuit against the San Francisco 49ers football team.  This season the team moved from SF to a new stadium in Santa Clara, right in the heart of Silicon Valley.  Why, the huge Cisco complex, one of the Valley’s icons, is on the same street, just a few blocks away!

According to claims, the team wanted to act like a “tech startup,” and wanted to hire the young techie types.  At least one of the plaintiffs was in a tech job (though not really IT).
