Morning Tailgate: New Stadium Technology

Posted by Alex Espinoza on March 19, 2013 – 11:38 AM

Among the many unique characteristics of the new Santa Clara Stadium will be the facility’s commitment to be on the cutting edge of technology. To that end, the organization has hired some of Silicon Valley’s brightest minds to turn the future home of the 49ers into one of the world’s most technologically capable buildings.

Jon Brodkin of Ars Technica spoke to 49ers Chief Technology Office Kunal Malik and Senior Director of Technology Dan Williams about their ambition to bring a world-class, large-scale Wi-Fi network to the new Santa Clara Stadium.

“The people building the 49ers’ wireless network do not have conventional sports technology backgrounds,” Brodkin wrote. “Senior IT Director Dan Williams and team CTO Kunal Malik hail from Facebook, where they spent five years building one of the world’s largest and most efficient networks for the website. The same sensibilities that power large Internet businesses and content providers permeate Williams’ and Malik’s plan for Santa Clara Stadium, the 49ers’ nearly half-finished new home.”

The rest of today’s Morning Tailgate looks at the the possible impact of three compensatory draft picks for 2013 and more.

NFL.com’s Bracketology competition to crown the greatest football play of all-time is open for voting. See which four 49ers plays from throughout the years made the cut.

ESPN SportsNation’s Madden 25 Cover Vote is in full swing and today’s votes count double on Twittter using the hashtags #Madden25Kaep or #Madden25Montana.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com spoke to Jim Harbaugh about the acquisition of Anquan Boldin.

Maiocco also shared comments from Ravens coach John Harbaugh about trading Boldin to the 49ers.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee shared an anecdote from new 49ers safety Craig Dahl about Colin Kaepernick.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, Maiocco and Barrows outlined the three compensatory picks received by the 49ers.

Elliot Harrison of NFL.com discussed the 49ers’ No. 1 standing in the latest power rankings.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com shared the latest Power Rankings from ESPN and discussed the NFC West rivalry between the 49ers and Seahawks.

    I’m definitely targeting Phil Dawson in my Fantasy Football leagues. He might even push David Akers’ record from 2011.

    Phil Dawson. Pro Bowl Kicker last year who made 93.5% of his kicks and was 14 of 15 over 50 yards the last 2 years! Thats what I am talking abouT!

  10. By 11yearswithalex on Mar 19, 2013 | Reply

    need to figure out what is up with the reed rumors ….sign him and pay him it will only lead to a SB win ….finally…..still means nothing now though ….we were the only team undefeated ….so now we are just like every other team …blah blah …no prestige ….just another team in parody with the others …man this blows

  11. By 11yearswithalex on Mar 19, 2013 | Reply

    so we can expect a ravens game and a chiefs game as well as a patriots game ….prob a giants game and a denver game …….gonna need all positions going above and beyond…..we have a tough schedule after not doing anything last year …accept for blowing all the work the great 80″s niners provided …defense will need to be epic this year if we expect to go anywhere besides out after 10 games

    with a pro bowl kicker on board and a pro bowl punter it’s time to get a stud return guy…and the special teams is addressed…

  32. By mfkram64 on Mar 20, 2013 | Reply

    ravens got a lights out rookie kicker cuz their kicker sucked and got jones to return kicks see how the little things win titles…akers sucked last year and ginn was a ghost…so getting dawson locks up a solid kicker now we need a return guy…

    Let’s hope Dawson doesn’t follow up his pro bowl season the way Akers did. Welcome to the team Dawson! Let’s get a ring on your finger this year.

    It actually was an Alex thing. Phil Dawson is an excellent kicker, and we all know how much Kaepernick needs his kicker to win games.

    And I still am a 49ers fan. At least, I’m still a 49ers fan as long as they aren’t playing against the Chiefs. And I will come here as I please.

    Say What? Did someone actually say, “And I still am a 49ers fan. At least, I’m still a 49ers fan as long as they aren’t playing against the Chiefs”.

    This statement represents an individual who will say whatever regardless of whether it makes sense or not! “You might as well say, I am always right even when I am wrong” and it highlights the “know-it-all” profile of an individual who constantly keeps logic out of the discussion as long as he convinces himself that we always wrong and he is always right!

    He is completely clueless :)

    11yearswithalex: We were actually right about the injury to Peyton. Peyton was obviously limited down the stretch on his deep throws because he did not have the zip AND we also mentioned his chocking history in the playoffs so lets not act like those things did not happen for you to save a morsel of face.
