After three successful banner flights last year, the 2015 season culminated with Jed York firing head coach Jim Tomsula in a post conference in which he acknowledged fan criticism from "...planes flying over my head." 

The 2016 season has already spiraled out of control. The 49ers are currently in the basement of the NFC with a 1-6 record. After a demoralizing week 7 loss to Tampa Bay this team is showing no signs of improving. The level of ineptitude that has been on full display every Sunday thus far can only be rectified with a total reexamination of the organizations interior. That reexamination needs to start at the top with the teams' general manager Trent Baalke. Trent has been provided ample opportunities to establish himself as a capable NFL GM.  He has failed and it is time for him to go.

Goal: To fly a banner over Levi's Stadium before the November 6th game against the New Orleans Saints calling for Trent Baalke to be fired.

Required: To fly the banner for two hours before the game our vendor, Aerial Services of Livermore CA, charges $1,024. GoFundMe takes 5% ($51.20) of funds raised so we will need to raise a total of $1,076.

Timeframe: In order to reserve a plane for the Niners vs. Saints we will need to reach our goal by October 28th. 

A huge thanks to everyone who helped out last year. We would prefer that the 49ers were on top of the NFC West and flying banners this season was not necessary. Unfortunately with Jed York that is not the case. That being said we have done this before and all the pieces are in place. The only thing remaining is fundraising. Please share this with your friends, family, coworkers and any 49ers fans you know. To see what Niner fans were able to accomplish last season by working together click the links below:

Once again we'd like to thank everyone who has helped contribute to funding the banners that will fly over Levi stadium. Unfortunately our pilot is not available to fly this coming Sunday. After an extensive effort to identify an alternate company to fly our banner we came up empty handed. We are going to have to push back the dates for banner flights for home games on November 20th and December 11th.

This set back is understandably frustrating for all of us, however, it is important to keep the ultimate goal in mind. We will continue to apply pressure on the 49ers that the ownership and management cannot ignore. With that said we thank you for your patience and encourage you to keep your eyes on the skies starting Novmeber 20th.

Thanks Again!

Wow! This might be our most impressive round of fundraising yet. In under 24 hours we raised over double our goal. We have officially stopped accepting donations. I have heard some comments questioning what we will do with the extra money. We are going to use that money to fly a second banner during a separate home game this season. We need to keep the pressure on Jed and Trent. Thank you all for the support and stay tuned!

We are concentrating on a symptom of the sickness that is Jed York. We should really have one demanding Jed to hold himself accountable and step down. Every. Damn. Game.

I believe there is one message that should be communicated consistently: "Hold me accountable" -- Jed York 12/29/14 Record since = 6-17 to date

I agree with many other folks, Baalke is just a symptom. The disease is the York family. We need to boycott them, let them know we hate them, whatever it takes to finally make them sell the team. I vote we make future banners about the Yorks, not Baalke. Let's keep our focus on what will really get us back to the Championship level.

Let's not stop at fire Baalke. Let's let the York's know how much we appreciate their 118th out of 122 ranked ownership.

Jed York is the main issue. Hold him accountable. Fly the banners and continue to not support home games.

I think the extra dough should go towards a second banner that alludes to Denise making Jed step down and putting someone else in charge of the team. Let's have Jed and his buddy Paraag tend to minor league MLS teams, as they deserve!
