Or maybe, just maybe, the people who want the team to move the stadium to Santa Clara (the 49ers are already a Santa Clara business, not a San Francisco business, they file their taxes in Santa Clara) want whats best for the team.
If Santa Clara can get a stadium to the 49ers in 2014 and San Francisco can't until 2020 (latest the Navy thinks they can have Hunter's Point fully cleaned-up and that based on current economic funding), why is it better for the 49ers to wait.
The 49ers need to get out of Candlestick ASAP, that stadium more then likely won't last to 2020. Its foundation is sinking into the Bay and its just plain falling apart. Who knows if it will survive another earthquake on the level of the one that hit in 89.
I want what's best for the 49ers organization, not a bunch of butt-hurt fans, and as of right now, that's Santa Clara. If San Francisco can come up with something better, great, do I expect it to happen, no.
