At this point the scrap value is probably more than the real value.

One of the big advantages to being in santa clara is the traffic is so much better than SF. The stick will be missed but I think it's time we get excited about making some new history. Also, it won't get done till at least 2014(at the earliest, probably 2015), so I'm sure the stick will be even s**ttier by then.

Exactly. New stadium. New memories.

Not to mention other historical events that occurred at the Stick....The Beatles played their ( I believe it was there last concert together as a band), Pope John Paul held Mass there, and of course the Great Willie Mays played baseball at the Stick. Then we have the Great Memories provided by the SF 49ers at the Stick. I just hope that the City of SF puts some kind of Memorial to note some of the City's Historical events that occured at Candlestick, when they tear it down, it would be a shame not to.

I agree 100%. It's a legit California Historical Monument candidate. Way too much history to ignore . . . and I have a feeling that tomorrow will not be the last NFC Championship game played there.

agree...just the parking lot alone needs to be a lot of work...it's time to move on...
It take money to build championship caliber teams. Unfortunatley without the PSL (which I will be paying for several), boxes, etc.. we cannot get the talent we need to contend. In addition players expect state of the art pampering these days. I have many fond memories of the stick but it is 50+ years old, the city does not maintain it and over the next few years before the new stadium is built things will only get worse.

Think about it, we have not had a night game for years so the city didn't bother IMO with worrying about if the lights would work or not so what happens an Epic embarressment for the team, the city and fans.

Its been great but its time to move on

well of course. land is at a premium in SF, since there isnt much to spare. I just wish theyd keep it around for other events, or make it into a 49ers/Giants sports museum or something. theyll tear it down within 5 years of us moving out, but itd be awesome to see it kept somehow.

were all sick of it now, calling it a dump and whatnot, but when its gone everyone will be sad. that stadium has SO much sports history. It was home to arguably the greatest baseball player in history, AND the 2 greatest football players in history.
