LA 49ers?

Posted by davefowkes on 02/12/2009

I really hope that the Yorks are honest when they say they are committed to staying in the Bay Area! The latest news comes from LA where another hurdle has been cleard to build a new stadium down there. They are talking about building a stadium, then luring a team to play!

Here in California we have three teams that desperately need new stadiums. Across the country the 49ers, Raiders and Chargers all need the most help. For my money, I think it makes the most sense for the Chargers to move to the new LA stadium giving them the entire Southern California market. Then the Bay Area teams can combine on a new stadium in Santa Clara or wherever else. It works for the Giants and Jets, why not the 49ers and Raiders?

In my world this all makes PERFECT sense! But my world usually never finds reality. The truth is, who the hell would go into business with Al Davis? That leaves the 49ers trying to build a stadium in Santa Clara on their own. As long as they are asking for public money, the 49ers will NOT be able to build a stadium in the Bay Area. It just won’t happen. So after striking out with the Raiders, striking out with the voters, the Yorks may very well turn their attention to a brand new facility that is being built independently! Heck, LA might be able to get the 49ers and Chargers into a bidding war for the stadium.

Either way, there may be a very dark day in the future where the 49ers pack their bags and sneak out in the middle of the night to a new home in LA.

Let’s hope the Yorks can find a better way!!!
