DeBartolo led 49ers, Walsh, Montana, Lott and Rice To Victories

Glenn Franco Simmons@fotodifrancoAnalyst ISeptember 8, 2008

Satirical writing is commonly misunderstood.

Here’s Webster’s definition two of satire: … wit, irony or sarcasm used to expose and discredit … folly.

For folly, I refer to the Yorkville 49er Front Office Circus that is more chaotic, messy and foul-smelling than a Barnum and Bailey train.

A Niner stadium should be in San Francisco, not in Santa Clara.

My satire is prompted by my disgust with the decades’-long discussion of a new stadium.
It was satire when I made a plea to L.A. developer Ed Roski Jr. and asked him to buy and move the 49ers.

There was no satire when I said Mr. Eddie DeBartolo Jr. is the greatest owner in NFL history, but he’s also a successful businessman who has employed many people who benefited from excellent pay, benefits, health insurance, retirements and lives of comfort.

Mr. DeBartolo remains my 49er hero of heroes; without him, there would have been no 49er greats such as Ronnie Lott, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice or Coach Bill Walsh.

Without Mr. DeBartolo, there would not have been the greatest run in NFL history and five Super Bowl trophies would not be showcased in Santa Clara's Yorkville Family Circus.
If I had my choice, I’d bring Mr. DeBartolo back.
