Thanks! I never really left. I read the board basically every day, but stopped posting. Why am I posting this then? Good question.

The technology could let fans order food or watch replays through their smart phones, and the open, "airy" construction would be unlike the retro brick ballparks and metallic domes that have dominated recent sports architecture.





order from phones, how?

The architects also are working on ways to allow fans in selected stadium sections to go on the field before a game. And if those fans get too rowdy, there will be a cell right there in the stadium for police to lock up scofflaws, said Santa Clara Police Chief Stephen Lodge.

Cisco Systems is among the companies developing technology that would allow a smart phone or other mobile internet device to be not only the "ticket" that gets a fan into the stadium, but a tool to select customized replays, call up player stats or buy a beer from your seat.
"From the very beginning working with the Yorks, they had some different ideas," said Tim Cahill, the national director of design for HNTB. "There was never really a lot of discussion of, 'I have to have this many luxury suites to make this amount of money.' It was about increasing the fan experience of every fan, and giving them a lot of options."

I don't think the paperless system would be exclusively for us. Besides that, the city of SC holds the right to name the stadium, as well as keep all the profits from it.

While possible, the Santa Clara thing is pretty far along in the planning process... From what I understand, there is only really the environmental impact studies and the vote, which are both big of course...

I really think a winning season would entice SC voters, and there would be MORE talk of stadium in the southbay
