No. I think this has been made very clear. They are still the San Francisco 49ers. It's not the Jersey Jets or the New Jersey Giants. It's the New York Giants and the New York Jets. There's precedent on this, people. Why are so many of you pretending there is a problem with the name?
It's not the Arlington Cowboys. Their stadium is closer to Fort Worth than it is to Dallas. It's not the Fort Worth Cowboys.
My only argument is that they're like a mile from San Jose so it wold make more sense to call them the San Jose 49ers-since SJ is a MAJOR city in itself. In other places like dallas or NY, there's no other near by big time cities near their teams new stadium. Since San Jose is LITERALLY a walking distance, my fear in the future that they'll change their name to SJ; esp. when SJ economy is already larger's than SF and continues to grow.
