*I had a three paragraph rant about professional sports and the owners but I counted to 10 and took a deep breath.*
You done good. Thanks for coming to our defense.

You forget taxpayers helped completely rebuild Key Arena back in 1995.
I think were still paying for it.

The Seattle fans are getting jobbed, straight up. The thing I find ironic is that David Stearn, who has always argued that if it's possible to keep a franchise in the city with which it is historically linked, everything possible should be done to keep it there, is one of the guys really leading the charge to move the Sonics. I wonder what he stands to gain from the move, financially or otherwise.

I don't argue that Oklahoma City wouldn't be a great NBA town, I think the NO experience proved they could be, but the way it's going down sucks.

I didn't mean it like *fudge* seattle more like aww *fudge* seattle they still have two good major sport franchises in my favorite major sports.  I don't really even care for a NBA team.  And no doubt the people of seatle got screwed out of a team.  And no doubt the new owners master plan played out exactly as they hoped.  Bennett married a Gaylord and had the biggest players in okc on his team, and if anyone was bringing a major league team to okc, dammit it was going to be them.  No way they let George Shin into town because he sure wasn't selling away any ownership.  They were going to accomplish that no matter the collateral damage. 

Why the *fudge* did Schultz sell them anyway?

I would much rather have taken the mariners or the seahawks though.  Wink

I agree you have every right to be pissed.  Hell I voted against our tax to remodel the 7 year old arena that made this all possible.   Yield
