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.

San FranciscoEXCUSES... The Yankees and the Jets/Giants have brand new stadiums. A Billion plus respectively each. NY real estate is very expensive. It's super expensive to build anything in that area. And the land is very crowded and developed. The same excuses you are using for us. But it didn't prevent them from getting it done in both football and baseball.

lol i like how you blow off common sense by claiming "excuses".

New York is an extremely wealthy area. theyve built new stadiums for the Yankees, Mets, Giants/Jets, and Nets all in the last 3 years.

i dont know if youve noticed, but CA has money problems. its not the 49ers fault they havent built a billion dollar stadium. if it was easy as just putting up the money, we wouldve had one a long time ago when Eddie D was owner.

do us all a favor and keep your negativity to yourself. as fans were all in the same boat here. dont be "that" guy who is the only one whos whining about it.

We'll be paying over a billion when its all said and done...

If you dont mind me asking, what exactly do you want in this stadium?

It should have a video board from the 20 to the 20. And a dome with air conditioning and heat when needed. And a retractable roof. And it should have a football field of real grass on rollers that can be put inside and outside. It should have a modern design, very wide hallways, lots of bathrooms, lots of concessions and huge video boards on the outside too. Plus enough parking spaces for the masses. It should have 100,000 plus capacity like the Cowboys stadium...

You forgot a movie theater, swimming pools, dancing bears, snow makers, USB ports in every seat, elevated cheerleader platform that comes up out of the ground, and a free umbrella for everyone just in case it rains and your dome leaks!

Im going to let you finish, but.....

The Yankees are a bad comparison. They make more money and generate more money than almost any pro franchise. The built the new stadium on the parking lot they owned, it was the parking lot for the old stadium. Yankee stadium is located in the Bronx, Bay area real estate is more expensive than real estate in the Bronx.

You really just put the Jets/Giants stadium as a comparison? You do know that 2 teams share the stadium and the stadium hosts 16 regular season home games a year. It would be easy to spend more money on a stadium if we shared it with another team and had 16 games played in it in a year. Also the Jest/Giants stadium is in NJ, the bayarea still has higher real estate prices than NJ.

actually USB ports in every seat is a good idea with how we need them to charge portable devices now

Perfectly said. You can't compare any team to the Yankees. Plus, their stadium is in the Bronx and not in Manhatten. Oh, and they're the Yankees. As far as the Jets/Giants, you nailed it on the head. Two teams sharing a stadium in NEW JERSEY, not New York.
