The San Francisco 49ers could be heading to L.A. if things don’t pan out with a new Bay Area stadium. InsideBayArea.com reports that relocating to Los Angeles could be a last resort if Plans A through C fall apart. I don’t know about you, but, L.A. was always my first choice. Anyhoo…
- Plan A: Santa Clara – 45 miles SE of SF. Maybe sorta on the ballot for November.
- Plan B: San Francisco – Hunter’s Point Naval Shipyard. A toxic dump. Silly San Franciscans, dumps are for schools!
- Plan C: Brisbane – Not Australia, although, that would be an awesome away game road trip.
- Plan D: City of Industry – LOS ANGELES STADIUM!
While Industry still seems like a logistically dumb location for an NFL team in L.A. with its lack of mass transit friendliness, the thing is already in the planning stages. Ed Roski, who is one of the guys behind the Staples Center in Downtown L.A., revealed some flashy renderings for a $800 million venue back in April. Now all he needs is a team to play there. The list of candidates for relocation includes the Chargers, Vikings, Jaguars, Saints, Bills, Rams, Raiders, and the 49ers.
One of them will move. Not ‘if.’ But, ‘when.’
Are you ready for some football?
