What I think about is the trademark of the San Francisco 49ers:

1. Bay Area: check
2. Ocean: not with the new stadium

The 49ers will lose this in this stadium and we will be a team with a bland look. What's funny is that it may match our teams' play under Singletary.

Look at what the SF Giants did. They were able to build something nice so why couldn't the 49ers. This isn't something that can be upgraded or replaced. The ownership should have required more creativity on the designers. It almost seems as though they rushed it and wanted a quick design to have something on the table for negotiations.


It's pretty close to the water on south bay.

Trust me, you really don't want to be too close to the water due to the earthquake/land liquefaction factor (especially in the northern Santa Clara area, where a lot of land is reclaimed from the Bay via garbage landfills)

The same can be said of candlestick, where some have proposed to build the new stadium. Isn't there a problem because of the Bay? When the tide is high, the ground gets a little damp, I think they had to build a drainage underneath for that didn't they.

The entire Bay area, land is expensive compared to other places. Not to mention the construction labor force and unless you import them from south of the border, which I think would be wrong.

Cause that's the logical solution. At least you can get to the stick from various places in san francisco other than the freeway. I know at least 3 ways to get to the stick. You guys sound like a bunch of santa clara native nerds. Only the santa clara fans, which suck by the way, are the only ones that are not opposed to the idea. The REAL fans from san francisco are the ones who aren't feeling it. As far as your solution goes, niners can play at sbc park or even stanford. Anything beats going to great america to see the niners!

Real fans dont b***h and moan about having to drive 45 mins to see their team play. I have to drive from Modesto, others have to drive from Sacramento, Fresno and even LA... driving from SF to SC is not a big deal at all. If moving to Santa Clara means an end to fans like you then I'm all for it.

So the bottom line is almost, everyone except for those in the South bay, are going to have to drive further to get to games?

I love the green tinted glass, though. I hope ours has some of that on it.
Cucas Oil Stadium should be the new name.
This new stadium layout looks like it came out of the playbook of Jimmy Raye.

No creativity, no imagination.

New stadium = 2 yd run up the middle

How can you say that? Most stadiums all the decks go all the way around, this one only the lower does. All the Suites and Clubhouse is one side. Thus making it unique and different-now if you mean you want a Star Wars theme park then yeah-but the fancier the plumbing the easier it is to clog and maintain. There are other things that I am sure while not visible on the outside will be evident to those who attend the games or the stadium.

ultimately it going to be on the fans in attendance and the team to make the new stadium special, but having some sort of new trademark would be cool. maybe a 50 ft bronze sculpture of joe montana dropping back with a giant gold-plated football. at the other end of the stadium you could have a similar statue with bill walsh with his headset on reviewing notes from his gold-plated clipboard.

as long as there arent any tough shadows for ted ginn to drop punt or kick returns in, i think i could live with it. jk ginn.

This is what it reminds me of.
Is that like a grass field at the top of one side?

I believe it's to do with some environmental cooling thing or something.

I read something vaguely about it.
