Should be cheaper Lease and more room for expansion. A warmer fogless area and not so much smell as Candlestink. My recollection of Candlestick is the foul odor that takes getting used too.
The 49er's will still be the 49er's. Die hard 49er's fans and those companies that purchase season and Mezzanine tickets will still continue to purchase them.
The question is how many 49er's fans that come to games regularly actually come from the San Francisco and all of the cities North of the Bay Bridge, San Mateo and Dumbarton bridges. My guess is that most will travel on 101 South.
But If there are enough of those people that opt to cross the bridges, then there could be massive congestion on the bridges and 880 which is congested enough during normal traffic hours. Would be HORRID when the games are on.
I used to live in Hayward CA and worked in Newark which is only 12 miles away, and it can take up to ONE hour when traffic is congested on 880. OUCH!
