Wrong. There is no such agreement. They will be the SF 49ers no matter what.

San Francisco Statute 866-b, in the agreement signed between the 49ers and City, dictates that if the 49ers reside or entertain in SF for longer than 25 years then the 49ers must buy out of city to continue using the SF name, letters or likeness.

No agreement has been made thanks in part to Dianne Feinsteins actions ultimately delaying the process for at least a year.

I read this might actually happen.
For those of you still wondering about the loudness of Levi's Stadium, this piece should answer all your nagging questions:

The biggest revelation, however, will occur at kickoff time: Even though Levi's Stadium will have about 1,000 fewer seats than Candlestick, it will be much louder. During a construction tour earlier this year, project co-director Robert Rayborn pointed out something to me that I had not even considered.

"It's going to be really loud in here," said Rayborn, who works for Turner/Devcon construction. "Really loud. Really, really loud."

Then he explained why, as we stood in the lower bowl. The stadium's design is different from most football stadiums.

The vast majority of luxury boxes are located in an eight-level tower--essentially, a large 12-story building--on the west side of the field. That means two things:

One, there are no upper decks on the west side, just the lower bowl and the tower.

And two, the east side upper decks can be closer to the ground--because it does not sit atop multiple levels of luxury boxes on that side of the field.

Perhaps that's a bit too architectural-geeky. But the practical ramifaction is this: All of those fans on the east side of the stadium (who are closer to the field than at Candlestick) will scream noise toward the field and the west side of the stadium. And when that noise hits the large flat side of the tower on the west side of the stadium, the noise will immediately bounce right back toward the field.

I so hope this is true. I would love it to be just like any team going to Seattle, for them to come to our house.

Plus the new stadium will have the largest amount of lower bowl seats in the NFL. Usually the majority of seats are 2nd or 3rd deck, but our lower level, right on top of the field, will have the majority of the seating.

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"!

Go Niners!

If every stadium is enhanced, the nfl wont be the same Itd be what a 70% to a 90% chance of home field winning
