Looks like the Niners weren't wasting any time (or screwing around). They've secured $850 million in loans for their Santa Clara stadium on top of the team, league, and city contributions they'd already acquired. Which means their funding component is all but complete. In fact they're so far ahead of schedule on getting this done that they're now upping opening day to 2014! Looks like the days of the Niners being based in San Francisco have an even shorter shelf life than anyone thought was possible.
