Santa Clara Plays Fair has long been considered one of the South Bay’s preeminent NIMBY groups. Most sports economists consider the new 49ers football stadium in Santa Clara—set for completion in 2014—to be an excellent example of how private-public partnerships can create economic development while the city only puts some temporary skin in the game. Santa Clara Plays Fair disagrees—and appears unwilling to go gently into that good night. In what was probably intended to be a satirical cartoon posted on the group’s Facebook page, artist Eugenio Negro asks three rhetorical questions about the new stadium, each getting edgier until the third joke falls off the cliff. It’s not that jokes about death are off limits; it’s just that they need to be especially funny. In three question-and-answer panels, the comic strip first asks how the city will pay for the stadium. “Oh it’s cool, we’ll make it happen,” answers a smug man wearing a suit and 49ers hat as he lights a cigar with a $100 bill. Then the cartoon wonders where 18,000 drunk football fans will park? The cartoon wryly answers, “Oh it’s cool, we’ll use Great America’s parking!” Meanwhile, a 49ers fan and a Raiders fan stab and shoot each other in the parking lot. But keeping it real really goes wrong in the last part of the cartoon, when the question is posed, “Is anyone working down in that elevator shaft?” The answer: “Oh it’s cool, just take the elevator down anyway!” These words are accompanied by a grave drawn for 63-year-old elevator contractor Donald White, who was killed during construction on June 11. Freaking brilliant—a comic strip that blasts others for their insensitivity by being completely insensitive. Word is Alanis Morissette is standing by with an irony award for Santa Clara Plays Fair, whose representatives did not return calls for comment.
