They're building a multi-level parking structure across the street but again how that will go with tailgating in a enclosed structure with fumes is kinda questionable.they may have a exhaust system i'm just not aware of it. I'm sure the designers engineers have probably already figured all this out I just haven't heard anything...This message is brought to you by the new niner stadium parking and tailgating rental site less then a mile away

Most of your questions were answered in the last few pages. You're going to have one helluva time with people invading your streets to find free parking. lol

Yeah I agree about traffic being a problem. They love to advertise that the stadium is by 3 major freeways. Yeah, so is Candlestick, and how did that workout? It still all comes down to surface streets that lead to freeways and those are going to be a mess.

You don't think that traffic will be better in comparison to candlestick?

Yeah that is exactly what I said.

It will probably be better, it can't really be worse (even though I get out of Candlestick pretty quickly maybe 20 minutes to a flowing freeway) but those dirt lots are hell. I don't think the new stadium will be great though, surface streets just don't have the capacity around there (even shut down and 1 way).
I was driving in Fremont and realized I could see the stadium from there:

Ohio buddy. Ohio. The Yorks are from Ohio. Other than that I think San Francisco County, Alameda County, Contra Costa County and Solano County have more people than 'San Jose Metro'. More 49er fans. It would've been ideal to have the new stadium centralized, as I said, in the Bay Area. I read an article which quoted the Yorks saying their loyalties are in Ohio, in regards to having loyalty to the city of San Fransisco. I'm not all full of hot air you know. I live in CA, Oakland.

You continue to prove your ignorance and bias. You are obviously NOT a 49ers fan. Where you live has absolutely NOTHING to do with it.

The 49ers went through their ticket base to see where the majority of season ticket holders were from. Guess where that is? That's right - SOUTH BAY. San Francisco had less than 5% of the season ticket holders. Sacramento had a higher percentage. (And no, I don't have a link, but I'm sure Marvin can give you even better details).

We all get it. You don't like the new stadium. You don't like the location. You're very much misinformed as to the details of why the new stadium was built in Santa Clara. I suggest you step back, take a deep breath,pull your head out and do more research before you spout off anymore of your CRUD.

This stadium is about more than JUST the 49ers. 47 Super Bowls, ONE held in the Bay area, and where was that? Oh, that's right - PALO ALTO. Candlestick has been deteriorating for about 25 years, give or take. When the NCAA decides that the only SF/OAK area stadium worthy of hosting a bowl game is AT&T park, that should tell you something. A BASEBALL stadium. Not Candlestick. Not O.co or whatever crap name that stadium has now.

The A's are desperate to move out of Oakland. The owner wants to move to SAN JOSE. He originally wanted to move to FREMONT. Hmmm.

The Warriors want to move back to SF. Hmm.

The Raiders are struggling to field a team in Oakland. They are looking to move elsewhere rather than take a half-baked politician driven plan for a new stadium in Oakland. Hmmm.

Oakland is broke. Rats leaving a sinking ship. San Francisco is a world cultural center, and most decidedly a baseball town. AT&T park is a beautiful facility for baseball. There are very few places IN SF that a stadium could be built. And if you try to argue the Hunters Point plan with me, you're going to lose. That's a superfund site. It would not have been built any time soon. It's going to take probably anther 10-15 years for that area to be fully federal compliant with the clean up. The Bayview/Hunters Point/Candlestick plans on the table right now are VERY long term plans. We're talking 30 years. Would you rather have a world clas state-of-the-art stadium in Santa Clara, or another 30 years of Candlestick??

Good post bro.

Dude.

Where do you get this stuff?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Jose,_California

"San Jose is the third-largest city in California, the tenth-largest in the United States, and the county seat of Santa Clara County. San Jose is the largest city within Silicon Valley, which is a major component of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. It is the largest city in Northern California."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Clara_County,_California

"Santa Clara County is a county located at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay Area in the U.S. state of California. As of 2010 it had a population of 1,781,642. The county seat is San Jose. The highly urbanized Santa Clara Valley within Santa Clara County is also known as Silicon Valley. Santa Clara is the most populous county in the Bay Area region, and one of the most affluent counties in the United States."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Francisco

"The only consolidated city-county in California,[11] San Francisco encompasses a land area of about 46.9 square miles (121 km2)[12] on the northern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, giving it a density of about 17,179 people per square mile (6,632 people per km2). It is the most densely settled large city (population greater than 200,000) in the state of California and the second-most densely populated major city in the United States after New York City.[13] San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California, after Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose, and the 14th most populous city in the United States—with a population of 805,235 as of the 2010 Census."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland,_California

"Oakland (pron.: /ˈoʊklənd/), located in the U.S. state of California, is a major West Coast port city and the busiest port for San Francisco Bay and all Northern California. It is the third largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area, the eighth-largest city in the state, and the 47th-largest city in the U.S. with a population at the 2010 census of 390,724.[8] Incorporated in 1852, Oakland is the county seat of Alameda County. It serves as a major transportation hub and trade center for the entire region and is also the principal city of the Bay Area Region known as the East Bay. The city is situated directly across the bay, six miles east of San Francisco."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alameda_County,_California

"Alameda County is a county in the U.S. state of California.[1] It occupies most of the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] As of the 2010 census it had a population of 1,510,271,[2] making it the 7th most populous county in the state.[3] The county's major cities include Oakland, which is its seat, Fremont, Berkeley, and Hayward."



So lets recap...Santa Clara county MUCH twice the size of SF, San Jose ALONE is bigger than SF, SJ is THREE TIMES the size of Oakland, SC County is larger than Alameda....

....and why the hell would the 49ers build the freakin stadium in the Raiders back yard to begin with? ONLY a person FROM Oakland would say that.

SJ is the largest city in Northern California. It ain't the boondocks. Ya know what's the boondocks? That would be the dying city of 390K people in the east bay that has every single one of its sports franchises (ok maybe not the Raiders who balck out all the time) desparately trying to get out of dodge.

Finally....I know you don't want to believe it, but there WAS a study puiblished (and I wish I could find it) that stated that by far the largest block of 49ers season ticket hiolders were in fact from the South Bay. Far more than SF and....dude...Oakland? Seriously?

Dude...give it up.
Nice post marvin

Blah blah blah, play here, play there, that 6th Super Bowl Parade is coming right down Market street in the undisputed home of the 49ers, San Francisco.
