Listen Bay Area faggots, I think tonight made it pretty clear you AREN'T OUR RIVALS. You never WERE our rivals. You never WILL compare to LA or SoCal in this fucking lifetime. You small town scum got put in its place, and I hope you realize that nothing you faggots do will ever make you more relevant than LA.
LA has more rich people. more diversity, more money, more notoreity.
Whenever any of us go out of state and say we're from California, they start talking about how great LA is. When any of you faggots go out of state and talk about California, they start asking you questions about LA.
We're also better than you at every sport, which is why more gold medalists come from Southern California than any other part of the country. In terms of pro sports, the LAKERS ALONE have more championships than your wack ass Northern California.
inb4 >muh NFL.
More NFL players come from Southern California than any state not named Texas or Florida.
And really, no one gives TWO Fucks about boreball.
Sleep tight. We're coming for all your water next.

Seems the 49ers and their new stadium are going full retard. It's like they think that all of the fans are rich and have credit cards and live in the rich bay area, rather than tons of them making the short drive from Sacramento, Stockton, etc. There are tons of poor fucks, you idiots.
>not accepting cash
>In keeping with its Silicon Valley base of support, the 49ers' assumption is that fans will be carrying smartphones, so the place will be entirely cash free and ticketless. Software engineers are already building apps for cellphones that will allow fans to order food, watch instant replays, listen to play by play and check bathroom lines from their seats.
