Stadium announcement in the next few weeks; 2012 target date

Jul 14, 2006 at 1:48 PM--


Mayor Gavin Newsom confirmed on KNBR that the San Francisco 49ers would announce an exciting new stadium plan within the next few weeks.

Newsom went on to say that there was no truth to the rumored link between the construction of a new stadium and San Francisco's bid at hosting the 2016 Olympics. He stated that the stadium would be built years before the Olympics and that its construction would simply be an advantage to getting the Olympics in San Francisco.

He feels that the stadium will be built by 2011 or 2012 and hopes for it to be ready for the 2012 NFL season.

"Everybody loves to take cheap shots at the Yorks, but this has been a difficult transition. There have been all kinds of issues with the family. All the dust has finally settled. Now it gives them the opportunity to get back, get focused on all these big things. And the last year, two years frankly, they have been focused on it and the sincerity...it's real...and it's a big deal to them," said Newsom.

It appears that plans are so far along that the team could have announced it already; it is just a timing issue. He feels that the fans will love the new stadium design.

For years, fans have been wanting a new stadium to replace the outdated Monster Park (still Candlestick Park to most fans). Hopefully within the next few weeks, fans will have a new stadium plan to look forward to.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said his star wide receiver, Deebo Samuel, is expected to miss one to two weeks with a groin strain. Don't tell Samuel it could take him two weeks, though. The team's leading receiver is betting on the lower end of his coach's estimate. On Wednesday, Samuel joined CBS Sports HQ and was asked if he expects to return for Week 14's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals after missing this weekend's battle against the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field. "Of course," Samuel responded. "It's only going to take a week, so [I'll] be back next week." That's good news for the 49ers, who are surging right now, having won three straight games and four of their last five. After starting 3-5, Samuel's squad is now 6-5 and
