The mayor has no legal ground to prevent the 49ers from using the SF name, its just him blowing smoke.
The fact that there are other teams that play in different cities or states gives the 49ers and NFL legal precedence.
Also, the fact that the city for years has let Quaker use the "San Francsico Treat" slogan with Rice-A-Roni (Quaker is located in Chicago) also lends itself in the 49ers favor.
Even the city does win somehow, it won't make it past the federal level.
