Default Sharing a Stadium???

The National Football League is urging the 49ers to explore sharing a new stadium with the Raiders, hoping the Bay Area could follow the lead of the New York Giants and the New York Jets, who have joined forces to privately finance the most expensive stadium in U.S. sports history.

The owners of the Giants and Jets say they too believe joining forces may be the best hope for the Bay Area's two teams to build a new stadium, especially in such dire economic times. The $1.6 billion Jets-Giants stadium in New Jersey will use new video technology to broadcast each team's colors and logo throughout the stadium for home games allowing two rival franchises with different histories and fan bases to feel at home.

The 49ers have not begun formal discussions with the Raiders, but the team plans to expand the scope of its environmental review in Santa Clara for a stadium that could accommodate two teams playing at least 20 games a year.

"The NFL has encouraged us to explore the possibility of a two-team facility to address the economics" of building a new stadium, 49ers president Jed York said in an interview with MediaNews this week.

York cautioned the teams are nowhere near a decision to share a stadium but added, "I think it's important you look at all of your options. If that's a possibility, that's certainly something we'll explore."

Commissioner Roger Goodell has had discussions with the Raiders and 49ers in recent weeks asking the Bay Area teams, who play in two of the oldest stadiums in the league, to consider a joint project, said Greg Aiello, vice president of public relations for the NFL.....
Im done for this. Getting a new Stadium will make us stay in Oakland. It also means we only have to pay for half the stadium, which will save us money.

This is definitely the way to go, I hate going to the game and looking down at a field where half of it is covered in dirt. Plus Al only brings in players with speed, an advantage which is negated by the infield.

I saw this on another forum and I have to say I like the idea, just not
sharing it with the Niners,

This idea of sharing a state of the art football stadium is long over due and is a no brainer if you ask me for both the Raiders, Niners and their fans.

Otherwise both teams may not see a new stadium for at least another 10 years in the Bay Area at least.

The Raiders will certainly not be getting any public money from Oakland thats for damn sure within the next 5 years or if ever in a this current economic recession and the Niners are going to have problems with Santa Clara and SF trying to tax citizens and get public money during this down economic time. Not going to happen.

Build the joint stadium in either the Alameda Island Naval Base where there is a crap load of empty land and fans can drive, take commuter boats or shuttles to the stadium from BART and where the stadium would have awesome views of the Bay and both Oakland and San Francisco.

Or they should at building at the current site in Santa Clara where the Niners are looking at or look to build in Dublin where there is plenty of land available and BART goes to directly to Dublin from SF and Oakland as well as other parts of the Bay.

Either way building a new football stadium like what has been done in Germany and now in New York to house two franchises would be the WISE and SMART move by both the Raiders and Niners if they truly want to save money and stay in the Bay Area. If they play their cards right they may also be able to get some funding from the league like what they did to help out the New York project.

Then again....the Yorks and Al Davis will let their egos get involved and are both to stubborn to do the SMART thing.
