Question for 49ers fans about new stadium

I have a few questions for all the Niners fans out there who are living in or near San Francisco:

- When the 49ers move to Santa Clara next season, will you be traveling to their games?

- Do you feel like they will be still representing the city of San Francisco, despite playing further away from their "home city" than any of the other teams in all four North American professional sports?

Here are some more interesting facts....

- The 49ers' new stadium is further away from its "home" city than any other team in the NFL, including the teams in New York City — who play in New Jersey.

- The 49ers' new stadium is closer to the city of Oakland than the city of San Francisco.

- The 49ers' new stadium is closer to UC Santa Cruz than it is to UC San Francisco.

- The 49ers' new stadium requires San Francisco residents to drive through fourteen other cities just to get to get to the home of the San Francisco 49ers, which is Santa Clara.


Thoughts?

14 cities...name them

Oakland is further...the stick is closer to so city
They might as well have just moved to Los Angeles TBPH IMHO
no one curr questions answered :)
....and yes, Niners games in Santa Clara WILL steal attendance from boring sharks hockey....the sharks should just give up & move to LA
If San Francisco wanted the team so bad they would have gotten a deal done
Definately needed its own thread









And to answer your question...











No

- What the heck does it mean to "represent" the city of San Francisco? Most fans of any team do not live in the named city of the team. Most of the players and coaches don't live in San Francisco. Their headquarters is not in San Francisco. They don't practice in San Francisco. Heck, Candlestick Park isn't in San Francisco either; they play in "The City of South San Francisco", which isn't even contiguous with San Francisco, as it is separated by the city of Brisbane. So I'm not sure how they currently represent San Francisco in the first place.

- It's "further away", OK, meaning what? Meaning they are now CLOSER to where most of the players, coaches, and fans live? Further from what? The city they "represent"? I believe we went over the idea of "represent" above.
Actually, they will probably be closer to their team headquarters than any other team, and likely closer to where their fans, players, and coaches live more than most teams.

- "Closer to Oakland"? If that is true, they are BARELY closer to Oakland, It's like saying the United States is closer to Africa then Europe. So obviously we represent Africa's interests more than Europe's.

- "Closer to UC Santa Cruz". I think this is saying the same thing once again, but I'd like to point out that it's nice for fans in Santa Cruz because they can more easily make the trip.

- "Drive through 14 other cities". Again, the whole theme is that San Francisco residents have more of a right to the team than other cities. I don't think you have established that argument. Again, the 49ers will not be playing the Colts in San Francisco this Sunday. They will be playing in another city.

Sorry, Candlestick is NOT in South San Francisco, its in the City. May not be the best part of the city, but it's definitely in the city.Take a [video]null[/video] left coming out of the stadium and say hello to Alice Griffith projects, or make a right and say hello to Little Hollywood...all in San Francisco. Heck, the address for the stadium is 490 Jamestown or something like that, which is in San Francisco...and about Oakland..the Raiders will be closer to San Francisco than the 49ers..and as far as the home city of the 49ers...that would be San Francisco since they were born here in 1946 playing at Kezar...but whatever...we're getting a new stadium and the Colts are playing the 49ers in San Francisco tomorrow

Here are some more interesting facts....

- The 49ers' new stadium is further away from its "home" city than any other team in the NFL, including the teams in New York City — who play in New Jersey. The 49ers have been headquartered in Santa Clara, away from the "home city" for 25 years.

- The 49ers' new stadium is closer to the city of Oakland than the city of San Francisco. Not that Interesting

- The 49ers' new stadium is closer to UC Santa Cruz than it is to UC San Francisco. See above

- The 49ers' new stadium requires San Francisco residents to drive through fourteen other cities just to get to get to the home of the San Francisco 49ers, which is Santa Clara. That's a shame, but residents of San Francisco represent barely 10% of all season ticket holders. Like I said. It's a regional team.
