Personally, I don't like the 49ers playing there. It's just too far. They can only do it before a bye week or they'd miss several days of preparation for the next opponent. I also oppose Thursday games for the same reason (not being too far to travel, but they still lose prep time).
And if we were to lose a home game for it, I would not be a happy camper. I was furious when we went a few years ago against the Broncos.
But if they win and don't have injuries Thursday games offer a lot of rest that is needed.

Do any of you guys know what financial compensation is offered to NFL teams that lose a home game? Also, if there is a compensation package, do the fans benefit in any way? I'm very curious to know, even though I benefit by seeing my team.
