Yeah, came to say this. Santa Clara, where the new stadium is, is very much anti-fabulous. Rather drab and boring. It's a college town, but it's a Jesuit College town.

My vote -- as a SF resident that until next year has a streak of at least 5 games at Candlestick every year -- is for the Santa Clara 49ers of San Jose.

SF and Santa Clara are about as far away as DC to Baltimore, and they're equally different worlds. There's no sensible reason why a team in Santa Clara gets to keep the SF name.

Honestly, I'm still pissed about the move. Moreso because the Yorks deliberately sabotaged Newsome's attempt to get them a new stadium via an Olympics in San Francisco. But, as my buddy pointed out, neither the NY Jets nor the NY Giant's actually play in the state of New York.Also, the Dallas Cowboys no longer play in the city limits of Dallas. So, much of my rage is subsided, vbut it's still a crappy deal.

Nothing. It's being abandoned completely. Just going to stay there gathering grafitti. Which pisses me off more.

I understand your reasoning somewhat. But according to Google Maps:
Times Square to MetLife Stadium: 9 miles
Downtown Dallas to Cowboys Stadium: 18 miles
Downtown SF to Levi's Stadium: 46 miles

I hope the 49ers proposal included a massive bus effort to bring everyone down from San Francisco.

It's as if the Detroit Lions moved to Toledo.

But then again, Toledo is basically Baja Detroit anyway, so maybe DC/Balmer is a better comparison.

The commute for most people is probably shorter now, particularly for the luxury suite holders. There's a reason why the Roski stadium for a "Los Angeles" team is being built in Diamond Bar on the Orange County border.

I suppose they could be renamed the San Francisco Bay 49ers, like Tampa does.  Everyone would still call them San Francisco.

From Google Maps, it looks like there's a Caltrain stop right there, so between that and the freeway ramps they'll probably be alright.

CSB: A friend of mine and his wife bought a condo about halfway between AT&T Park and the Caltrain station near the stadium.  Spring and summer, they're always complaining about the noise and the crowds, which I don't understand, because it's not like they didn't know the thing was there before they bought.  I compare their situation to someone who goes to the Castro and complains about all the dongs everywhere.

the Caltrain station isnt actually all that close, but to be honest, I don't care. Games at the Stick have been overrun by assholes who cant handle their booze for several years now.  I'm actually more likely to go to the new stadium. Maybe you'll even be able to escape the parking lot in less than two hours now.

That's not Caltrain, that's Santa Clara Light Rail. To get to the stadium from SF via public transit, you have to somehow get to the Caltrain depot at 4th and King (one or more likely two buses for most residents), then you have to take an hour-and-fifteen minute (if you're lucky and catch a Limited) train ride, then you have to take the 902 light rail for 15-20 minutes. On a good day, with everything working perfectly, you can be at the Great America light rail station walking to the game about 2 and a half hours from when you left your place in SF.

Gameday Sundays? Those will not be days where everything works perfectly.

I was actually surprised we were given a second chance after all the sports media got extremely angry over some of the businesses in Houston that weren't comping them on every single thing. The Olympics snub really seemed to spark something around here. First a lot of the billboard clusters were taken down, They've been planting trees everywhere (IAH and the area around the Ship Channel Bridge look like a forest now). And parks seem to have popped up everywhere.

No surprise about L. A new stadium on the 50th anniversary in a famous city (or near it) seems like a no brainer. I'm positive the planners will figure out something about getting everyone around. There will probably be a construction boom in Santa Clara.

Not exactly, There is an Amtrak/A.C.E. stop a block east of the stadium, and VTA trolley that stops just to the west. The light rail has transfer stops at Mountain View and Downtown San Jose CalTrain stations. The stadium site is boxed by freeways on the north and south and expressways east and west each less than a mile away. There is surface parking at the adjacent California's Great America amusement park which is closed during most of football season.

They bought an overflow lot across the river which is where the stadium is being built. A deal to buy the park and the rest of its lot fell through, but I think a more cooperative arrangement (seasonal sublease something-or-other) was finally settled upon.
