Oakland 49ers?

We hear about the Raiders moving back to LA. We hear about the 49ers moving to Santa Clara. We hear about the A’s moving to San Jose. Here’s one you probably haven’t heard. The 49ers have revealed a potential interest in moving to *gasp* Oakland? That’s right, the more spacious side of the Bay has a few things the Southeast corner of San Francisco does not; namely multiple freeways and BART access. Like all these discussed moves, however, the Niners to Oakland is purely talk at this point. If the scenario were to evolve, we’d likely see the Raiders and 49ers sharing a stadium, like the Giants and Jets in New Jersey. What’d be interesting is how many San Francisco and Marin County fans would make the trek to the East Bay. I’ve met more my than my share of folks who avoid Oakland like the plague. The ironic part is, in my opinion, Candlestick Park is in a far worse location than the Oakland Coliseum. The only SILVER lining to all of this is the possibility of seeing a new stadium built in Northern California, since two teams may just be enough to get it done. Let’s just hope the A’s don’t get any ideas about trying to share a ballpark with the Giants!

    Wow, that IS wild! I love the poll on the link that says 54% of people are furious! It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out, and I’m not opposed to seeing it happen. Like you said it would give the A’s a one more reason for a new stadium (like they don’t have enough already). Let’s just hope it’s at least in Northern California. Maybe KJ will somehow work a miracle in Sac, and get a stadium done for the A’s…

    From a Niners perspective I wouldn’t want to move. Oakland and gold miners don’t mix. I’m just happy it wouldn’t be the other way around!

    Why not just get the Yorke and Davis families to swap spit also ? God knows both franchises are in need of doing something worthwhile !

    Weird development, didn’t hear about it… I think this could be one lame deal for both franchises if it happened, but I agree it would help the A’s get out of the colesium…
