    I could have told those idiots this is what was going to happen if they moved them out of SF.:rolleyes::rofl::rofl::rofl::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::haha::haha::haha::haha:

    The San Francisco 49ers said their home game against the Buccaneers was 100 percent sold out, but video taken at Levi's Stadium shows nearly half the seats were empty.
    Concern grows over half empty stadium during 49ers game

    LOOK: Levi's Stadium is almost empty for Buccaneers-49ers game
    :biggrin:


    If they dont come to their senses quick about moving the Warriors out of Oakland into SF,the same thing will happen there as well.count on it. San Francisco doesnt have the passionate loyal fans in basketball that they have in Oakland.That will be a major mistake if they follow through on that foolish plan.

    Oh and for the people who think that the Niners winning will make a difference? better think again.:biggrin:
    Through the whole decade of the 2000's when they were horrible and had losing season after losing season they ALWAYS packed them in at candlestick.

    Even if they would turn things around next year and be superbowl contenders,they would have the same exact same problem the Raiders had when they moved to LA.

    The year the Raiders won the superbowl out in LA,the next season at their home opener they only had a small tiny crowd of just over 45,000 for their home opener.The Oakland Raiders might have won a superbowl out there in LA but nobody cared.:lmao::lmao::rofl:

    The REASON nobody cared? was because LA is obviously Rams country.:biggrin:

    This informative article says it all below how even when the niners were terrible at candlestick they packed them in and sold out.:thup:

    This is not a dis to SF 49er fans... But its something that needs to be said that touches on an issue that goes beyond football.. I was watching the Point After TV show and was hearing the commentators and fans they interviewed talk about how the vibe of the 49ers and their new stadium is very corporate.. They complained that family feel is gone and now they have half empty stadiums even before the game starts..

    Before the move to Silicon Valley, win or lose Candlestick was sold out-always..

    'Corporate' is a nice way of saying gentrification..As a Raider fan, one thing one could say and had to respect.. When you went into SF and down to Candlestick, you could feel the vibe of hardcore do or die fans who would ride for their team.. That is gone and we should all watch carefully whats gone on with Levi Stadium bc that's not coming back..

    As was noted in the broadcast, the owners opted to go get that new tech money vs old time family working class money.. What they got is a uncommitted, fair weather, status seeking fan who treats the 49er games as background to other activities vs folks who had he team as a tradition and damn near a rite of passage..

    Nowadays many of the true fans have been priced out.. and totally inconvenienced to even getting to the new billion dollar stadium.. Sports is a communal thing... But we have owners who think its an individual one sided affair, where branding trumps skill set..

    What is happening with the 49ers should be a warning as to what may happen to the Warriors when they leave for pricier gigs and a city where most of its residents have been unceremoniously displaced and priced out..

    This may and probably will happen to the Raiders if they leave..
    The lesson we should all learn is that gentrification leads to sterility..Sure money may exchange hands for a moment, but it soon dies out.. why? because there are no roots and no true anchor..the reason why Kaepernick's protest generated excitement, was because his actions were related to diehard Niner fans who been ignored and priced out..

    We often joked about 49er fans being brie cheese eaters.. Sadly Jed York and his crew abandoned die hard 49er Faithfuls to capture real life brie cheese wine sipping elites.

    May we all learn from this.. Salute to the true 49er fans who were royally screwed over by corporate gentrifying greed..As BB King once noted The Thrill is Gone..

    congrats NFL for making jackasses out of yourselves letting Jeff York give the middle finger to all the loyal passionate fans in SF who supported you always there in the lean years and all the bad times.
    :rolleyes::up::clap2::clap2::clap2::clap2:

    The NFL fucked up royally letting this happen.They dont get it that the fans loved going to that old ballpark in candlestick and prefer it over to that dump in santa clara.thats whats sad about it all is unlike the vikings stadium,santa claras really IS a dump stadium.:D

    If the NFL had any brains they would do what Al Davis did.Davis at least to his credit realised moving the Raiders out of Oakland was the worst mistake he ever made making the comment five years later after the move he missed the loud roar of the oakland crowds since the place always had half empty stadiums all the time. He acknowleded he screwed up and accepted his asinine decision to move to LA and moved them back.

    speaking of the raiders the same thing would happen to them if they actually did move to vegas which is not going to happen,there would be no home field advantage same as there never was in LA.:rolleyes:

    uh maybe the NFL should do the same thing,oh thats right, you idiot politicians in SF tore up candlestick.:rolleyes:

    If they start winning, they'll get more butts in the seats. It might not be as many as they'd have in SF, but success is the best way to keep seats full.

    sure,sure keep dreaming.:biggrin:,keep dreaming it will be different for them than it was for the Raiders when they moved to LA where despite winning the superbowl out there, the next season for their home opener and the rest of the games as well for that year,they had half empty stadium crowds since nobody in LA ever wanted the Raiders there it being Rams country.:lmao:

    You obviously did not read the whole article in that first post of mine.That article wasnt from me it was from a niner fan.the REASON there are half empty stadiums there is NOT because they are losing but because the die hard passionate niner fans have been priced out of tickets there.

    It has lost that family feel and atmosphere Candlestick always had so those blue collar fans are staying away because of that,not because of them losing but because it is too much of a corporate feel for those fans and they have been priced out with far too much expensive tickets they cannot afford.

    That idiot Jed York thought all these rich big wigs in Silicon valley would fork out major big bucks to come out and see the game and the place would sell out still but it backfired on him and has bit him in the butt.:biggrin:

    He DID get part of his wish in that the big wigs with deep pockets-the SUITES do go out to those games,but what he did not count on is they leave after halftime and dont come back till the end of the fourth quarter because they are more interested in doing business deals in their suites instead of caring about the game.:biggrin:

    Like I said,the die hard passionate niner fans that supported the team through thick and thin when they were losing in SF,they have been priced out of the games and cannot afford the rediculous prices York is charging them.

    so keep dreaming if you seriously think them winning will get anymore buts in the seats,well maybe a couple more hundred or so but thats about it.:biggrin:

    as much as I LOVE football,I would be elated if NFL football got shut down. there are a few other reasons why but the MAIN one is the new england CHEATRIOTS and Bill BeliCHEAT have tainted the sport with their cheating and lying.They have to CHEAT to be great.they are not true winners.

    I used to be impressed with how they were tough to beat at home but they no longer do impress me when they win all the time because the REASON they are so impressive at home is because they have the home town refs in their pockets.the refs call penaltys against players from the other teams in the playoffs yet they never call the same penaltys against them that they commit.

    the headsets for the visiting teams always go out at games there but it NEVER happens to them. coincidence? i think not. Plus the visiting teams have said their playbooks have been stolen before.

    they have tainted a great sport. They have created the biggest scandal in sports history since the black sox scandal and everybody outside of new england hates them for it and sees them for the cheaters they really are.

    If you dont know about this just google in "tom brady bill belicheck liar and cheater.patriots scandals" and you will understand then what i am talking about.

    The Raiders moving to Vegas might help. The price to support a football team is so high that California may well have one to many.
