The Stadium Debate Rages On

I haven't seen too much about the plan to build a new 49ers stadium in the parking lot of California's Great America recently, but now things are getting toasty once again between Cedar Fair and the Santa Clara City Counsel.

The park operator is threatening to sue if their concerns are not addressed property when putting the measure to vote. The financing plan for the stadium was recently approved but the measure needs to pass the general ballot before being finalized.

It's an interesting situation because Cedar Fair seems more than willing to sell the park and be done with it but it appears as though the 49ers aren't very interested. Possible legal action could surely delay the plan enough to cause it to fall apart, so I think we'll see more action on this one sooner than later.
