Yeah, it should happen. The big major hurdle is getting it approved by the voters. By all indications the yes vote seems to be ahead. The last remaining hurdle if you want to call it a hurdle is Great America. The Niners can simply buy them and be done with the headache. So really once it get voted and passed there should be no problem finally getting the ground broke and construction underway.

I've said this as well. Something like this:
Nedney can kick em into the ocean.
where is that
Thats in Singapore. The reason I know this is because I currently live there. This is where the finish line and seating gallery is to the Formula One racing they have every september. This is an older picture because the track is not finished in this picture
Is there is a "support measure J" facebook group that I can join. If not, someone should create it. I figure the more people that support and are behind this measure the better. Everyday I see friends join groups support or are against bills and measures that I have no clue about. At least the measure I would strongly support.

Originally posted by jimbagg: 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.
