The latest hearing indicated that they will indeed be the Santa Clara 49ers for at least the first season until this whole legal mess gets sorted out.
Yeah, right, lol… What hearing
are you talking about? This was nipped in the butt years ago. Even if they were successful in taking the naming rights, all the team would have to do is call themselves the San Francisco "Bay Area" 49ers to keep the name and logo. It's all really just a bunch of childish banter in the end, but if Feinstein is actually dumb enough to pursue this course it will ultimately lead to her political retirement, which I am all for. So go for it and watch what happens. "SF Forever"!
