Two big developments happened this week in regards to the 49ers stadium plans in Santa Clara. On Tuesday Santa Clara city officials voted to move toward a June 8 election for voters to have their say on whether or not public funds should be used to help the 49ers build a stadium in the South Bay next to the Great America theme park. The other development, and reason why Santa Clara officials voted on Tuesday for the June 8 election, was the release of the environmental impact report. In the report Jed York and the 49ers acknowledge that traffic and parking could be huge issues when it comes to the 49ers playing home games on Thursday or Monday Night Football. In the report it states the 49ers will “inform the NFL they will forgo weeknight games on their schedule” if parking and traffic will be too much for surrounding businesses.
So let me get this straight Mister York, you and the 49ers have balked at two San Francisco proposals, one at Candlestick and the other at Hunters Point, because of PARKING AND TRAFFIC ISSUES! But why then Mister York would you want to move the 49ers out of their storied city of San Francisco to a city that is more than 45 miles away that has parking and traffic issues of its own? If both San Francisco and Santa Clara have parking and traffic issues what are your other motivations for the move? Mister York you are saying that with Santa Clara you are willing to give up national televised games on Thursday and Monday night just for the sake of having a new stadium out of San Francisco.
Whatever animosity you have towards S.F. Mayor Gavin Newsom and the City and the ambitions you have for the team in Santa Clara need to stop because both sites now have, according to your spokesperson Lisa Lang, parking and traffic issues. However building a new stadium in San Francisco stays true to the history of the team, allows San Francisco and 49ers to remain the teams name and you would not have to forgo any national televised games on Thursday or Monday night. I am not a business man, however you are, but I would think that giving up opportunities to showcase a new stadium on national TV is bad business decision making.
Your excuses for wanting to move the team out of San Francisco have been debunked time and time again. Mister York you have become the next great flip flopper. The 49er Faithful can no longer take you or anything that comes from the front office seriously anymore when it comes to the 49ers stadium. Now Mister York, you are back to being back Mister Joke, the head Joke of the Joke Family.
Oh and by the way San Francisco released a new artist rendition of a 49ers stadium part of the redevelopment of Hunters Point. Yeah, your right Mister Joke let’s build a stadium in the middle of Santa Clara next to a theme park and forgo any weekday games all for having a stadium out of San Francisco. Last time I checked the San Francisco Giants have great ballpark on the waterfront that is the darling of Major League Baseball. And what to do you know Hunters Point is on the waterfront in San Francisco and not in Santa Clara in the middle of nowhere. Looks good to me:
