    Santa Clara officials are expected to finalize a proposal with the San Francisco 49ers as early as today to build a 68,500-seat stadium in the South Bay city, in part with millions of dollars in public redevelopment money. The deal lays out a funding plan to move the five-time Super Bowl champions into a new game-day home 37 miles from San Francisco in time for the 2014 NFL season, those involved in the negotiations said. "Now it's fourth and inches," Santa Clara Mayor Patricia Mahan said in a recent interview. "We're in the red zone." The Santa Clara City Council is expected to take up the plan at a closed-door session tonight.

    Is the new stadium really going to look like this:

    I don't like. No "personality" at all. Looks like the Eagles' one... or a generic stadium in Madden. :doh:
