I'm glad the 49ers told SF to pound sand. The city played games with the Giants for years over a stadium and almost lost them a few times...and then when the Giants finally did build a new stadium, what happened? It only completely changed the face of and revitalized an area that was had been a total s***hole for years, bringing in restaurants/pubs, retail, and upscale residential. But did the idiots who run SF learn their lesson? Of course not. They played the same games with the 49ers...for f*** sake, the stadium referendum passed in what, 1998? But at every turn the city of SF, to include city leaders and the vocal, anti-sports "intelligentsia" crowd, kept blocking the 49ers at every turn. So it was with great pleasure that I watched them scramble and grovel when Jed finally gave them the finger and said we're moving to Santa Clara...oh the hissy fits, the threats of lawsuits to prevent use of "San Francisco" in the team name. Good stuff.
And bonus, I'm counting on the new location, SBLs, and ticket prices to somewhat clean out the degenerate crowd that has started to become more and more prevalent at the Stick. You know, the losers and wannabes seemingly more interested in giving off that "I'm a bada**" vibe and trying to out-thug Raider fans than anything else. Good riddance.
