That makes too much sense. Not Burlingame in particular, but somewhere North of San Mateo and South of the city. Off of 101 / the bay. I really like the Brisbane option (I think Pelosi offered up an an alternative years ago).
Realistically, however, the Niners and Raiders need to get together and find a location for a new stadium that they can share....and the most likely place for it to happen is the parking lot of the Oakland Coliseum. It is right next to a major freeway and BART so folks from all over the Bay Area can attend games. The NFL would be thrilled to help finance a stadium there and I would bet that it would get a lot of corporate money as well.....a win/win for both teams and the Bay Area.
A win win... Dude I know your on drugs. Why the hell would we want to share a stadium with Oakland, give me a break. We are the 49ers we are the greatest Dynasty in football history. That being said we deserve need and should get our OWN stadium
.....I am not on drugs. I'm merely suggesting a realistic
scenario in which both teams benefit from NFL and corporate money and have a nice stadium to play in for years to come.
Now, if you have been following the NFL at all recently, you know that the commissioner has often spoken of a stadium that both Bay Area teams can share. That is probably the only way the Niners and Raiders get significant money from the NFL to help build it. In addition, both
teams would be putting in their own money thereby helping the financing even more. Because it will be an attractive venue, there will probably be significant corporate sponsorship involved which would also benefit the bottom lines of both teams.
If you want my preference
for a location, then it would be SF, either in HP or near the airport. As things stand now however, that seems pretty unlikely given the city's politics, lack of infrastructure, lack of vision, and lack of funding. Therefore, realistically
, the location that would actually make sense for both teams is in Oakland, where the location is excellent, infrastructure is in place, and political will is there to make something happen.
In the future, it might help to not react emotionally to these posts and to actually try to understand what the person posting is trying to convey. Just a gentle suggestion..
