Well it's either figure it out with the 49ers, or have a really expensive stadium that's empty most of the year.

Maybe the could re-instate football at Santa Clara U. Fill that place with 10,000 fans.
Wonder who is behind this:

I skimmed through it and someone is reporting a "closed session" decision which a city attorney would probably not authorize. So it's like " a reliable source" quote.

It sounds like Santa Clara is cancelling game day support which I think = traffic control and police services. The City is probably being short changed there and the team needs to come up with their own plan.

If they do that and someone gets injured I can see a major lawsuit. There would be a huge battle to decide whether the city or the Niners were at fault. I would think it would be on the city since they are allowing the game to be played in the stadium they own. Not to mention the public streets.

Levi's Stadium is owned by the city of Santa Clara, California, but it's managed by the 49ers. The city says the stadium has been mismanaged, and is seeking to take management back.

The city, rather than the team, should be making money on and managing non-football events.

Looks like the city wants more than that, even needing city approval if renovations are needed for the stadium. Reminds me of the contentious relationship between the 49ers and San Fran about Candlestick improvements.

From reading the East Bay Times article, it seems that "wage theft" is being classified by the 49ers hiring a crew to do work that wasn't a city-designated crew negotiated at a particular wage. Yeah that union/non-union stuff can get ugly really fast.

Seems fair to me.
Santa Clara owns the stadium, they paid for it. They should have rights to.approve changes to their property.
If upgrades are made to the stadium, Santa Clara will likely be on the hook for the costs of the upgrades.

The 49ers could have privately financed a stadium like the SF Giants and the GS Warriors.

You got no argument from me there man. I agree 100%. If you want to all the benefits, own it.

Yes
The 49ers should buy it from Santa Clara for the remainder of the loan value plus the value of the land and then the 49ers can do what they want with it.

That makes too much sense.

LOL its the Yorks they aint spending their $$$ but they'll snatch yours
So, you guys are OK with the city signing a contract agreement , that the city wanted, to lure the 9ers to Santa Clara, then backing out of it? Why? The city even voted to do it if I remember correctly. I would just move the team and leave them owning an empty stadium.
Wow bro. Such turmoil. I notice this crap when the 49ers are winning.

This is all because the Santa Clara mayor and the council have a personnel grudge against the Niners. I don't think she was ever in favor of the stadium and there have been numerous disputes over the last 3 years. They better hope the Niners don't get pissed off and move because they'll be left with a big empty stadium and lost revenue.

Move where?

Oakland. I heard Mt. Davis is open for business.

It's a crime that the 49ers are being subsidized by small town like Santa Clara. Billion dollar business should be able to build their own facilities rather than work the taxpayers over for handouts.
49ers got this push through by bribing politicians that are no longer around.
If they paid their own way like the San Francisco Giants or the Golden State Warriors, they wouldn't have these headaches.

This sounds like something that the mob would do. Not, saying Jed is a mobster or anything.

Yes, not sure why the city is getting so much sympathy here.

This is a serious accusation and I can't find any supporting evidence. Please provide your links.

By the way, most teams don't own their own stadiums.
