have you ever had a positive thought about the 49ers in your life? have you ever had a positive though about ANYTHING in your life?
we cant build the Death Star like AZ and DAL did because land is EXTREMELY expensive to build on in the state of CA. its not a coincidence that all 3 CA teams have 3 of the oldest, dumpiest stadiums in the NFL still, while most every other team already had their new place built in the last 15 years.
its hard to find land, its hard to come up with the money now that the stadium pool is dried up, its hard to get taxpayer approval. we found a site, and got the votes, we just need to finance it.
Also, we dont need a stadium like AZ or DAL has. what for? the only reason they look so specacular is because of the retractable roof. the 49ers play in a climate similar to the Mediterranean. its beautiful weather almost year round. what do we need a roof for? AZ gets 120 degree heat, and DAL gets the humid heat/storms. they needed a roof.
in the midwest football is the most important part of life, and building on land is extremely cheap. it wasnt a big deal for Jerry Jones to build that thing.
understand the situation before you cry about it. if were lucky enough to get a brand new stadium all to ourselves, not sharing with the Raiders, and not in Los Angeles, this entire fanbase should be thrilled. itd mean revenue is going to go up, the team is going to improve, going to games would be better, and best of all, it would mean were in the bay area to stay. no more stupid LA talk.
