49ers Wanting Out of, San Fran............

49ers | Team planning to move away from San Francisco
Thu, 9 Nov 2006 00:35:30 -0800

ESPN.com reports the San Francisco 49ers have ended negotiations with the city of San Francisco about building a new stadium. The team plans to move to either Santa Clara or somewhere else in California, according to reports. 49ers owner John York notified Mayor Gavin Newsom of the team's decision earlier Wednesday, Nov. 8. Newsom's spokesman Peter Ragone told the San Francisco Chronicle, "We're disappointed, but we're not planning on mortgaging the future for a deal." York was evasive with the Chronicle tried to reach him, but he told the paper he would elaborate on the team's future plans Thursday, Nov. 9.

The 49er are not, I repeat, are not going to move to L.A. In fact they do not plan to even change the name of the team even if they do move. They will remain the "San Francisco 49ers". They do NOT plan to leave the Bay Area. If they relocate, it will be to a suburb of S.F.

But in a news release announcing the decision issued late Wednesday night, York said the team will not change its name even if he decided to move.

"Nothing will persuade us to change the name of the San Francisco 49ers, one of the most storied brands in the world of sports," he said.

The 49ers said if they are unable to move forward with the project in Santa Clara, they would only look at other cities in the region.

"The 49ers have called the Bay Area home for our entire 60 year history," York said. "We are a part of the fabric of this region, and we intend to stay right here where we belong."

No its not just you the whole story is misleading. They aren't really moving just relocating there home turf.

THE NFL IS NOT MOVING THE SAINTS... NOR OR THEY EVEN TRYING... COMMENTS LIKE THAT ARE BS.

hey chip shots like that ragin cajin.
LA has had there chance with what 2 teams now? Rams and Raiders?
they lost both.
anyone know what it would take for the fans to put together a class action law suit together? Or is this that anti-trust loop hole the nfl has?
The niner's have been looking and planning for a while now. the still want to build on the candle stick site the last I read.
