Either way, I don't care as long as the team name stays the same. I just assumed the Niners were still within the county but moving away from the busy city.
The city of SF is also the County, they are the same. SF is the only city in SF county.
Niners are moving to Santa Clara in Santa Clara County which is essentially San Jose.
I challenge anybody to open up a map and tell me where you can fit a stadium plus parking on the peninsula. All of the open land is on mountainous terrain, There is a little bit of land in Brisbane but if I remember correctly it wasnt option because its needed for something else.
