Can you imagine having their fans and our fans in the same building during the inevitable match-ups?
This is a REEEEEEEAAAAAAALLY Bad idea.
They didn't ask the Cowturds to share their digs with the Texans did they?
This is why the stadium needs to be built in the City. Obviously it's been voted on and passed in Santa Clara. But the thing is that they don't have $500 million of the building costs, so let's get down to Brass Tax. Policy and company have more investors who DO have the money or are at least close enough that the league can't strong arm the team to get what they want. It's BS(!!!) that we're even in this position. We're one of the 3 PREMIER franchises. Those being the Cowturds, the Squealers and us. We DESERVE our own diggs. The league has MORE than enough to put into escrow for all 32 teams if they thought there was a budget shortfall or if they thought that all the stadiums needed to be replaced.
PHU@K THE KRYPT KEEPER AND THE RAITARDS!
Not sure what decade you are living in, but the Niners are no longer, and have not been for some time, one of the NFL's premier franchises. I would say NYG or the Pats have replaced us in that list. The Niners get absolutely no credit for their glorious past, nor should we.
Name any other team that has FIVE Super Bowl Championships to their name?
When you have that you're still premier. Have we gone through a dry spell? Hell yes we have. No team is going to have winning decades forever. Be happy we had two. Neither the Cowturds or the Squealers can say that. And we're on the upswing of the pendulum my friend.
So yes, by your definition this team is not premier. But by the very definition, they are. Arguing otherwise is semantics imho.

I do hate the Raiders but I like having them in the Bay Area if that makes sense. The Bay Area is one of two metro media markets that support two NFL teams and it makes zero sense for one metro area to spend two billion on two stadiums when they'll never be in use on the same day.
As far as the Niner-Raider match-ups, the crowd will be partisan for which-ever team is designated as the home team that day . . . it won't be a 50-50 crowd.
It does fly because Jones wanted a new Stadium back when the Texans were first coming back to the league. The league didn't ask them to pick a place in between both locations and share a stadium. You didn't see the league tell the Rams they must share Arrowhead with the Chiefs. They aren't very far from each other. Miami and Tampa? Yes I know the distance involved there.
Point is this team should have had a stadium long before now.
And dude, you're right it won't be a 50/50 crowd. We'd get overrun by the Black and Silver clown brigade.
And it makes NO sense at all to share a stadium with them. We got along fine for years without them, we've been in the league since '46 and to me this is an affront to the organization the team and the fans of this team.
Houston and St. Louis financed their stadiums without NFL assistance and the league isn't about to tell the Dallas Cowboys they have to play in Houston.
Yes we've gotten on fine without sharing with the Raiders so far, but the fact is both teams currently have run-down stadiums and it would be a ridiculous undertaking for one area to spend that much $$$ on two venues. There's not a public entity in the Bay Area that would EVER approve financing for the bulk of construction costs like other cities have done around the country and naming right revenue opportunities have dried up with the economy. This makes us beholdent to the NFL's conditions if we want their help to finance the new stadium.
Sorry Mate, that's according to you. Neither team has had their own digs built from scratch since Kezar for the 9ers. In any case teams that reside in the same city do it all the time and seem to find an area to build in quite easily.
It's BS that you use the "waste of money" excuse. The NFL is only trying to get out of being a major contributer. Because if Davis WERE to join in then the amount they have to contribute is a paltry sum. They didn't have any issues helping the Ravens. Didn't have any prolems helping the Cowboys and all the other teams. They don't seem to have any problems loaning money to them. But our team its' like Goodell and the League seem to like stickin it to us every chance they get. PHU@K THAT!
I'd sooner step out on a BUSY SF International runway and try to shag incoming planes with a ball glove than have this crap go down. It's BS.
Where do you live, Ceadder?
At the moment I live up North. Not that it matters, I grew up in the area and to me it's BS because it's simple. The League doesn't like this team. This team was dominant for far too long and well into the Cap era. We were the reason the Cap era was installed. Nevermind that the Cowturds are in the largest market and have Mr. Gotrocks Jones funding them. Where I live is semantics. I'll still be going to games and hell no I don't want to share the same airspace as Raider fans.
As soon as I finish up my education I plan to move back and hope to Teach in the area.
