49ers and As moving Sports, posted by Sporty, a resident of Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Nov 9, 2006 at 11:35 am
The news seems to be that both the 49er and As are moving nearer to us. How will that affect the sports fans on the Peninsula. Have the Giants lost some fans now? Let's debate. Its about time we had something other than politics to rant about!

I'm excited about the Niners moving. I'm thinking of getting on the season ticket list. All I can say is that Candlestick is a dump, and its great to see them get the upgrade they deserve. They have some talent on that team - A. Smith and Gore to name a couple, so hopefully the darkest days are behind them.
Its too bad they aren't moving the stadium to Palo Alto - that would keep this board hopping!

I wish the 49ers would stay up at Candlestick. If they move to Santa Clara, it will just mean more traffic for Palo Alto. Do we really want the masses of working-class Niner fans traipsing through our town? Sunday nights on 101 will be horrible and the traffic will probably spill over onto Middlefield, and the red-light runners there are already all too common.

Who cares about professional sports any more? I'd rather see a Paly game, or a Stanford game, any day.
Professional football? What a joke!! Ex-jocks who can barely complete a sentence,hired as sportscasters - all one hears is "wow! that hit really rung his bell!" (uduh!!) - talk about BORING!!!
Then, watching the same sorry plays, over and over and over and over and over again. BORING!!!
btw, I used to love moet professional sports, but they're all so overblown and full of themselves that they have lost their relevance. It's like watching Brittany Spears do her act - BORING, HALF-BAKED, and SAD!
