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.
This, has no knowledge of anything 49ers and the Bay Area
Easy to tell once I read that he said that the owners weren't from the Bay Area ....probably doesnt even live in CA
Where do you get this stuff?
"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."
"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."
"The only consolidated city-county in California, San Francisco encompasses a land area of about 46.9 square miles (121 km2) 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. 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."
"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. 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."
"Alameda County is a county in the U.S. state of California. It occupies most of the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 1,510,271, making it the 7th most populous county in the state. 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.
