The Giants got their stadium because they are sharing it jointly with the NYJets. I believe the NFL has said if the 9ers want money they'll have to look into sharing with the stinky Raiders.
There is no longer any NFL money available. That fund has been exhausted.
It is becoming more and more clear that given the combined issues of the economy and the anti-sports mentality of the Bay Area, that they only way EITHER team gets a new place is if they combine their resources and build it ALL with entirely PRIVATE money. It is highly unlikely that any public vote will approve the use of public funds to build a sports facility in this market.
It is Al & Jed together or nothing. I don't care for Kawakami all that much but his column linked today is right on target.
