Sorry it's not pretty enough for you but the stadium in Santa Clara offers a great fan experience complete with upgraded technological advancements, not to mention it's in a much better neighborhood with nice entertainment venues nearby. Regardless, it's a huge upgrade from what we have now .
I like The Stick, a lot, I don't care if the toilet overflows because some pinhead threw a lot of paper into it, I like the fact there is a traffic jam to go home, see that's what happens when 65k+ people show up for an event, anywhere, I like all my friends there. Hey fantastic you can play with your ipad and not watch the game, that is IF you can afford to buy a ticket or worse a season ticket. New is not necessarily better in so many ways.How do you know the SC stadium will offer such a "great" fan experience, gone to a game there yet?
When the game is over I don't hang out in the neighborhood, I go home, I don[t care about the neighborhood. Right after spending about $200 for the day at the Stick, the last two years, $125 for years before, I want to go out to be entertained at some groovy venue. Not to mention at this stadium it will be a $200 to $425 day since everything will cost so much more including tix; my old seats on the 43yrd line 11 rows up were $180 the last 2 years, here Jed and his crew wanted $80k up front for a PSL per seat, and then $375-$400 per game. What a great deal for this new fan experience!!.
IMO it should have been at Hunters Point, the gov would finish cleaning it up, you get views to die for, tons of parking/tail gating area, on the bay, etc..
