I hope they don't move, that team has so much tradition it would be a shame for it to leave. Damn, move arizona or houston before san fran. I understand it is over money but still its just wrong. Think of all the great players, (Rice, Montana, Young) three of the best to play the game and you want to move the team. This is like moving the cowboys to san antonio, its just wrong.
Interesting, yesterday the A's annouce they are going to move to Fremont on the border with San Jose and now the 49er's are thinking about the same thing. I imagine it is just a negotiating ploy though.
While I agree with everyone in saying that it would be a shame moving one of the most storied franchises in the history of the sport i can't help but I agree with you here, "better them then us", that way those MOD EDIT: No Veiled Profanity will have there little NFL franchise and won't try to steal ours....I actually some guy from LA talking about they want 2 teams!!! they don't even have one yet...
