    SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers ended negotiations with the city about building a new stadium and plan to move to Santa Clara or somewhere else in California, The Associated Press learned Wednesday night.

    Owner John York notified Mayor Gavin Newsom of the team's decision earlier Wednesday, a city official close to the negotiations told the AP on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.

    Team spokesman Aaron Salkin declined to comment Wednesday night. Phone messages left on the office and cell phone of Lisa Lang, the 49ers' vice president for communications, were not immediately returned.

    The sides had been talking over the past few months about building a privately financed stadium at Candlestick Point that was going to be part of the city's bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics.

    The team's lease at Candlestick runs through the 2008 season, and the team holds three five-year options that could extend it through 2023.

    The stadium at Candlestick is one of the most run-down in the NFL, leading the team's desire to seek a new stadium with revenue-generating suites and luxury boxes. The plan to build a stadium also included public housing, retail and office space.

    The city was not going to contribute any money to the stadium but was willing to possibly help with infrastructure costs.

I'll be there next month (12/10 game against the Packers). I'm interested in seeing how "run down" it is.

Something I had read elsewhere said that there was already a $100 million commitment from the city, but that the team had to put up the rest. Is that correct?

All reports that I've read state that the club will indeed maintain the "San Francisco 49ers" name.

CandleCom Monster Park stadium was a dump the last time I was there for a Giants game, I can't imagine it's gotten better.



They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

I don't know how many of you follow Arena Football, but I'm sure it's enough for this. Orlando Predators head coach Fran Papasedero died late Thursday night in a car accident. He was 34.
