The names of the jerks who voted the Sonics bill out of committee need to be published so the voters can boot these asses out of office. I noticed this was not done in any of the 3 articles I read on the committee vote. Who are they? I want to contribute to ANYONE running against them and donate some shoe leather and knock on doors to campaign against them. Gawd we wonder why this state is such a mess!

"The voters have spoken, or maybe, shouted, on the use of city funds in Seattle sports arenas. The 74 percent “yes” vote on Initiative 91 means there will be no renovation of KeyArena at Seattle Center for basketball. […] Seattle voters are in no mood to finance a Sonics arena or any other improvements. If Seattle voters are this grouchy, voters in suburban King County probably don’t feel that much different." Last I checked King County is not just Seattle. In fact Seattle is less than one third of King County. Seattle's its own unique place. Remember Seattle's rejection of the 4 foot strip club rule last election? That rule was upheld everywhere else in the area when it went to the voters. Thor has it right. "The GOP will simply say: “if the Democrats wanted to keep the Sonics they’d have put it up for a vote.” I like the current majority. And I’m not willing to risk the majority over this" Look Goldy. The Sonics have had a shitty record this year because of injuries to the team. 4 of their starters have been out. They will be here next year and if they stay healthy they will make the playoffs. If they do and then move to OKC the following year. I guarantee you the GOP will use it against us. We have nothing to lose by letting King County voters vote on the proposed Renton Arena.

I think the main thing to consider is that the NBA business model must be broken. Paul Allen has not been able to keep his Blazers profitable with his own privately funded arena. I heard on KJR that the Heat cannot even make money with their brand new arena that was just built. When Michael Jordan left the NBA, he took the league with him, much like when Muhammed Ali left boxing.

All Seattle, King County, or the State should pursue is a deal with the NBA that will allow the City to keep the rights to the identities "Seattle Sonics" and "Seattle Storm". Let Clayboy and his Recraplican haters take their team to that great toilet known as Oklahoma, I could care less. Hell, I'll drive (or fly) in from Reno to help pack.

@34 If the Sonics are a going concern, why do they need a $400 million taxpayer bailout? Fuck 'em and give the money to me. I'm more deserving.

@33 I think the bookkeeper sent that one while Frank wasn't looking, Richard. Hey, you want to know something funny? Some years ago, I looked up the precincts with the greatest concentration of votes for the communist candidate for president, and they were all in The Highlands!!! It would appear the revolution can't get here fast enough to suit the household servants who wait on the rich Republicans in their mansions.
