If the YES side does not carry the day, expect some serious chaos and distraction to impact the Niners. The LA stadium people would re-surface, declaring the Niners as one of their prime candidates for the stadium under construction in the LA-area. I have no idea how the vote will go. Silicon Valley traffic already sucks, money is tight, new jobs are scarce, and everyone sees how Oakland taxpayers are still paying for the Raiders debacle. The Niners' management has invested tons of time and money to persuade Santa Clara voters to their way of thinking, but a YES is no sure thing at all.

From my own point of view, I much prefer to see a Super Bowl come back to the Bay Area, than the Olympics to be held in the Bay Area. More revenue, less expense, give me the Super Bowl every time.

One other thing, while the weather on the bay flats area of Santa Clara is significantly better than Candlestick Point, don't kid yourself about the wind. The wind HOWLS through this area in the late afternoon. Just check out the bent of the trees planted and staked at the golf course across the street (Tasman) from the stadium site. Even with intelligent design, any outdoor stadium on this site, is going to have a wind factor between 2:00 - 6:00 PM.

I think this is what is going to happen. The Santa Clara site will get shot down and LA will be the only viable option left. I think people are just burying their heads in the sand and trying to convince themselves and others that it won't happen but I think the writing's on the wall.

It's just a matter of time before the 49ers move to the City of Industry.

nice
