Yorks May Have to Sell the 49ers

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News writes that if the San Francisco 49ers can't get a new stadium built in the Bay Area, they may have to sell to the team, possibly to a Los Angeles-based ownership group.

"I’m not saying the Yorks could move the 49ers. I’m saying that if they don’t get a stadium in Santa Clara, they could be in some financial distress.

They’re not in this forever. If they are stuck at Candlestick, things could get dicey. That just has to be the truth here.

So if they can’t get a new stadium in the Bay Area… Denise DeBartolo York might pull the plug at some point. She hates when her name comes up, but she’s the owner, and the team is being run by Jed at her behest.

And if somebody from LA offers outlandish money for the team, and there’s a stadium down there, why wouldn’t Denise think about selling the 49ers?"

San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom told the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that even if voters in Santa Clara approve constructing a new stadium for the 49ers, they "a math problem, and it's a money problem", and that the only solution to the 49ers/Oakland Raiders stadium issues is a shared facility.
