Why is society turning into a bunch of pansies? Try suing an amusement park for your sunburn and see how far that gets.

If the glass is reflecting the heat, they can fix that. You cant prepare for every obstacle.

The fact that we were able to build a football stadium in California is a miracle in itself. Lets not get too whiny about it.

You all can talk down the heat all you want but this is a major problem for the niners. The typical fan will not sit there in the beating sun for 3-4 hours straight. Not when you can sit at home with a beer in your hand. On top of the heat you have horrible traffic, nothing to do around the stadium, AND now a shi**y product. Levi's stadium sucks balls.

So did Candlestick...

It was cooler, but it was in a crappy part of town, it was falling apart, traffic was even worse.

As far as wanting to watch at home, you can say that with every team. The NFL in general is facing the problem that the game is MUCH better on TV. The comfort of your own home, its free to watch, you arent paying a premium for food and beer, and you get all the angles and commentary about whats going on. This isnt a problem unique to the 49ers.
You're not a REAL man if you can't sit through 75+ degree Levi's Stadium weather
Jed doesn't give a single f*ck if they stay in their seats, as long as they still buy tickets.

Sun on the visitor side is not unbearable or anything, but to say it isn't bothersome (at the least) is best left to delusional internet tough guys.

If you pay to sit on the sunny side on purpose, i gotta another name for you.

Ill drink a beer for you, from the comfort of my couch, in front of my 60 inch TV.

Maybe I'm one of the few who loved candlestick. I didn't think it was a hole. Im an A's fan. O.co is an S hole.
Candlestick was great, from the tailgating to the trough urinals. I don't care how many winning seasons the 9ers have at levi, it will never have the personality that candlestick had. You can't put personality into a stadium that looks like an 8 year old designed.
Ive been to arizona, seattle, and dallas (both old and new). Levi is by far the most stale and boring stadium. I remember the day the drawings came out and the consensus here and at other sites was "is that it"? That's what a billion dollars gets you in santa clara?

UR 43 row 17. Those were my seats at candlestick. They would get sun all day long and it was very tolerable. Even when you were drunk off your a$$.
You can't do that in Santa Clara. It's a totally different animal.

So what was your plan? Keep playing at Candlestick until the bleachers collapsed?

Levi's is 1 year old. Obviously its not going to have the character of a 55 year old stadium that saw Mays, Bonds, Montana, Rice, Young, etc.

Do you realize how hard it was to get a stadium built in California? Its a miracle. It would've been impossible to built a Cowboys/Cardinals type monstrosity. Real estate in CA is WAAAAAAAY too expensive for that.

We all have nostalgia for the Stick. But it was time to move on. SF had decades to figure out a stadium deal, but their politics are so screwed up, and their arrogance was so great that they lost the 49ers. The south bay is where ALL the money is. It made too much sense, and was the 49ers only realistic option.

Honestly, people with opinions like that come across like kids throwing a tantrum. Its not the Cowboys fancy "death star", and it hasnt hosted any historic games, but we should be happy we got a new stadium. Remember the days where we actually worried about being shipped to LA?

Seriously?
I've been to Arizonans stadium. There is absolutely nothing special about it inside. I was totally underwhelmed walking around in there. It's a regular stadium with fancy paneling on the outside. It's not some historic cathedral of the NFL. Thery'e all just football stadiums. People see them on TV and think it's like entering the gates of heaven. lol

They rushed this POS stadium. Remember the locker room/sideline debacle?
what did they rush...solar alignment ?

The Stadium face North and south same as the Stick, same as Oakland


LOL. Bingo again.

This is the freakin' Bay Area people.

Um...home locker room was built on the sunny/visitor side. And that's the side the home sideline was originally set for. But Harbawz was sensitive to the sun just like 90% of us and said eff that -- we're moving the home sideline to the shade and we'll just cross the field at half time to get to our "home" locker room. We can slap hands with the visiting team as they walking over to the visitor's locker room.


um...what's your point?

That's not exactly earthshattering news.

NFL team will choose ANY advantage they can. OF COURSE you want your back to the sun and your team in the shade.

That doesn't mean its unbearably hot. It means your coach has a clue and will take any advantage he can get.

They made a mistake in the design -- they should have originally placed the home field locker room on the shady side.

Going back to my original post of which you questioned...They rushed this POS stadium. Remember the locker room/sideline debacle?

Right...only took 2 decades to get the thing done.

"rushed".

Get that BS outta here.

It was hot in the building in the hottest summer in years. Shocker.

Its warmer than at Candlestick that is known as one of the coldest areas of the Bay Area for most of the year. Shocker.

Home Locker room was build where it is because that side is closer to the 49ers HQ. The idea was to put them on that same sideline. Not a big deal to move it as we see because that's exactly what they did.

Ya may not have noticed, but we are in the middle of a big drought so not really a big surprise that its really hot in August and September.

This was a very expensive stadium. A TON of time was put into the design. A TON of time was put into the planning.

However, no amount of time or planning can account for the hottest summer in a decade or the fact that it's naturally warmer in SC than Hunters Point.
