Well it looks like "Santa Clara 49ers" so to speak, not literally of course, coming no sooner than 2014 but with many variables to spoil it even beyond the threat of the 2011 NFL lockout.
On that larger matter, I see Goodell as the guy who will work the extra mile to make it happen and the current head of the NFLPA, Washington DC attorney DeMaurice Smith, as the holdup guy already drawing public ire from peers including the NFL Alumni. Hardly anything good can come out of a situation when you have a Washingtonian in the mix I can tell you from beyond even my 7.5 years living there knowing something about how to deal with them and around them. They are rotten folks you cannot trust for sure like you would expect from most politicians.
Here's the latest on the situation, and those of you in Hamilton take note as well as this discussion though in the US has some similarities as any discussion of a new stadium proposal that involves public funding, infrastructure, and services (i.e. traffic planning, law enforcement, emergency services, utilities, et cetera):
