Re: 49ers - quest for a new stadium

Sharing a stadium with the Raiders would be an insult to both teams, lol. Plus, there is no way I'd go to stadium that's going to be played upon by a worse team (sorry Raiders fans, but it's true).

Nor should the 49ers have to relocate to a wannabe 'city' of Santa Clara. Remember, a couple of blocks of offices don't make an area a 'city'.

But seriously, sharing with the Raiders is the worst idea ever.
Do you no how many homicides in the name of "Raider Nation"
there would be?
Probably somewhere between zero and absolutely none.

seriously though, this whole Raiders/49ers bloodshed rivalry is way overblown. It's not like they're at each other's throats or anything. I mean, they're not even in the same conference. In the end, who really cares?

There are things we can accept as axioms:

- Candlestick sucks, and cannot be renovated
- Oakland Coliseum sucks, and cannot be renovated
- In this economy, there's no way the Raiders and 49ers could get separate stadiums built

Therefore, the logical alternative is for them to share one stadium.

Like I keep saying: The Jets and Giants have shared a stadium for decades in New York. They will continue to do so. It's worked out just fine so far. Nobody has been killed, no fights breaking out, none of that crap. (Didn't happen when the Mets and Yankees briefly shared Shea, either.) If they can get away with sharing a stadium, there's no reason the Bay Area teams can't as well.

Sharing a stadium works ok in soccer in many European cities too, where the fans of the two clubs really hate each other - for example Rome, Milan, Athens, Munich, Moscow.

Re: 49ers - quest for a new stadium

^ Exactly! And if *European soccer teams* can pull this off, you know that sharing a new stadium between the Raiders and 49ers would be childsplay compared to that.

I think it would even help the A's get their new ballpark built, assuming they would be up for a temporary sharing of AT&T Park with the Giants: the Coliseum could be razed, and the A's build their new park where it used to be, while the Raiders and 49ers temporarily share Candlestick while building a new joint stadium.
