A SAN FRANCISCO TREAT? In S.F., John Cote reported Mayor Ed Lee is "not giving up on the 49ers leaving the city for Santa Clara just yet, and he wants to get a sense of what's going on in Jed York's head." Lee did "not promise he can persuade the team to accept a deal on the table here for $100 million from a private developer to build a new stadium at a redeveloped Hunters Point shipyard." He "didn't even say he could restart negotiations." But he "wants to talk with York." Lee: "I think there have got to be other discussions with Mr. York and his team about their approach to that area." A 49ers official said York and Lee are trying to plan a meeting "sometime soon" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 1/31).
