IF this gets done at the soonest point possible... And if Hansen already has a handshake deal with the Maloofs... Is there any chance we see the Kings (Sonics) playing at the Key this next year?

What did you say? Just curious. You tell them what a boon the Thunder has been to the city?


I sent it from my work e-mail and I'm home now, but I basically said that I don't live in the city, but am a lifelong seahawks fan, and living in Oklahoma am a Thunder fan. I've gotten to see up close and personal how much it hurt the Sonics fans losing the team, and how they didn't deserve it. I let them know that I think it would not only be great for the city of Seattle, but for the NBA and the sport of basketball to have the Sonics back in Seattle. I finished up with a bit about how I believe Seattle to have some of sport's greatest fans, and how much this means to them and to future generations, and that I'm looking forward to a long and passionate rivalry between our two locales.

Almost shed a tear...good man, Peaches. You didn't have to do it, but thanks for the support.

The first time OKC comes to town I will make damn sure I get tickets. That will be HOSTILE.

Man not much news lately....

There's actually been a lot going on lately, but it's been mostly kind of downer news so there probably hasn't been a lot of enthusiasm to talk about it. If you're not checking up on sonicscentral.com daily or following @sonicsarena @sonicsgate @chrisdaniels5 @brockandsalk @aaronq13fox on twitter, I'd recommend that as well.

Basically the news went from a lot of talk that the deal was going to get done very soon, talking about an actual SCC vote on the thing before the recess. Now that's looking unlikely, and the Port and other anti-arena sorts are throwing everything they can at it. The Port put out their own traffic study, but it didn't do anything to prove their case so they called it "unsatisfying" and basically are trying to delay the thing for "further study" which is basically their attempt to slow drain this thing to death, and it seems like Councilman Burgess might hold this thing up in committee and give the Port their wish. Max Vekich and the Save Our Sodo douches have intensified their smear campaign, and the Seattle Mariners have apparently officially lined up with that group, as their name was featured as an organization opposed to the arena location in their latest ad. Now today there's been a poll released that showed 52% of Seattle voters were opposed to using public bonding for the arena. The demographics of the poll did not represent the demographics of the city, but instead of registered voters which does make sense, however the questions were leading (it is a damn push poll after all) and the margin of error was over 5%, which means they can't even put together a push poll that statistically demonstrates that the majority of Seattle voters (which includes a heavy dose of old farts) are against this thing.

That's what's been going on. Don't get down, though, that's the worst thing we can do. Keep emailing, calling, fighting, and let's not give up or sit on our hands due to overconfidence. If this thing gets past the SCC, even if that means after their recess, I'd probably call the thing unstoppable. Even though both the city and county councils would vote on it again after SEPA and the EIS, I think it's unlikely anything major changes from then on out. I'm not as good as stirring up positive emotion in the crowd here as EJ, but let's just keep pushing until Sonics tickets are in our hands.

I'll go to an M's game. Once the team is sold and Howard Lincoln is sent away in a trash can.

We tried to get Mariners fans to hear our cause back when Clay was stealing our team. We went down to the stadium before and after games, handing out fliers, talking to anyone who would listen. The sad reality that we discovered is that the vast majority of those fans don’t give a flying rip about us or our cause. Trying to get them to care is like yelling into the wind.

I don’t know if Seahawk fans would be much different.Sounders fans surely don’t give much of a crap about us.



This was posted by Speedcat over at Sonicscentral. I think as both Seahawk fans and Sonics we should step up. Also, I've sworn off the M's until new management comes in

I saw that chatter about Hawks fans start up and someone suggesting posting something on .NET about getting fans to wear Sonics gear to the Hawks' preseason games. Really like the spirit there, but I think it'd be hard to get a big enough contingency of Hawks fans to be sporting Supes stuff through this forum.

I agree with your sentiment, though JOz, it'd be cool if we could be a part of Seattle sports fans coming together, I'm just not sure what will make sense, and how we can get those who might not be as interested in this (those that don't pop into this thread at all) to contribute in a way that we can make a significant statement.

Yeah that's my biggest worry. Unfortunately this is all I can do to chip in, as I'm on the other side of the mountains and can't run around Seattle boycotting the M's in Sonics gear.

I hope my fellow gold and green peoples dont go trolling the Hawks games... I love my sonics and all but bro, I'm don't want to hear about some political crap when I'm watching football.

They should troll the Mariners though, to get their points across. The Seahawks already showed support for Hansen.

CALLING ALL SONICS FANS!

The Port of Seattle has recently launched an aggressive attack campaign against the arena. Both directly and indirectly. With word of a possible agreement, they have been desperately trying to spread fear and misinformation.

Today Sonics fans fight back on Twitter. It's already begun. #PortOfSeattleFacts. Look it up. Use it. Find any possible article about the Port that makes them look bad (trust me, this is ridiculously easy. they're run like the mob) and tweet it. Or at the very least, go on Twitter, search for #PortOfSeattleFacts, and retweet as much as possible. This is important. We need all the help we can get. Here, let me help you get started. If you need some ammo to use:

Port paid K street lobbying firm $300K/yr to lobby against clean port legislation.http://bit.ly/NpwZbR #portofseattlefacts

Port of Seattle burdens KC taxpayers by refinancing bonds - where was the vote on that? http://bit.ly/Nh8Shw #portofseattlefacts

Port of Seattle, illegally spending your tax dollars. Again. http://bit.ly/QTMYA6#portofseattlefacts #NoOversight #AbuseOfPublicFunds

Port of Seattle loses $300,000 of YOUR and MY tax money, refuses to do anything. #portofseattlefacts http://bit.ly/N8muY3


We need all the help we can get if we're going to get this the attention it deserves. Thanks.

I know that this is supposed to be for the Sports forum, but Mods can that somehow be placed on the main page, just because of how important the message is?

Sign up. It only takes a few minutes of your time. Even if you don't intend to use it ever again, just use it for the greater good this one time.

They were saying on Twitter that the City council was delaying discussing the Arena MOU until after a recess period. They are expecting to pick this up @Aug 24th.

Our own Seatown81 is a good twitter follow for all the latest details. @EJJ206

EDIT: King5 thinks a vote will not occur until September.

Same here. He got re-tweeted by Rotak (I believe) and when I saw that banana head, knew it was Seatown.

No problem Lt Dan.

Seattle City Council stalling out again, watch them drag this past the election date so they can play safe and campaign on what their district yells the loudest.

I hope Hansen can pull some magic off but this city council would rather spray perfume all over themselves while standing in crap and say they are green and helping the enviroment then simply flushing a toilet and cleaning up problems.

With all the mud slinging going on I beleive they are hoping to turn up a skelton to throw a wrench in the mix.

Don't get too discouraged, guys. It's not happening as quickly as we all would like. But it's better for the council to get it right, than it is to do it fast. There are likely a couple council members still on the fence that need a little bit more to get fully on board. People in the know are all saying that word is Tim Burgess, who leads the committee overseeing the proposal, is doing a good job trying to make this work for everyone. We don't want the council voting this out of committee and to a vote if it won't pass. That's why waiting a couple more weeks to get a deal that everyone is happy with is important.

Here's an update from Chris Hansen from yesterday:

http://www.sonicsarena.com/news/progress-report

Quote:
Hey Everyone,

Our recent conversations with the City Council have been very productive and I am committed to continuing the discussion. I hope we’ll soon reach an agreement that will put us on track to bring NBA basketball back to Seattle.

— Chris Hansen


And some positive news today. Local Seattle politicians telling the city council that they support the arena:

http://www.sonicsarena.com/news/letter- ... egislators

Quote:
Senator David Frockt, Representative Eric Pettigrew, and Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles sent this letter in support of Sonics Arena to the Seattle City Council.

"Letting this proposal pass would be a missed opportunity that would leave us wondering for years what could have come from a project promising thousands of family wage jobs, expanded economic activity, and restored pride with the return of our world Champion Supersonics."


Keep on fighting. We've had a really productive day mass tweeting the city council. Send a message or two to @SeattleCouncil, telling them you want this passed. There's been a big push of fans tweeting the following:

@SeattleCouncil: As a registered voter, I ask that you approve the SoDo arena MOU. Thank you. #SeattleArena

Keep up the faith!

I like that Seattle Legislators are coming to our aide, like we needed it anyway we already had facts on our side. But this is like a whipped cream topping, all we need is that cherry (whats up seattle city council?!)

Aaron Levine ‏@AaronQ13Fox
Citing e-mail documentation, arena proponents contend the #Mariners hired Pacific Public Affairs to wage PR war against the proposed arena

Jason Puckett ‏@JasonPuckettKJR
#Mariners paid, in part, for anti-arena poll that appeared last Friday that said the public is against arena, @SportsRadioKJR has learned.


I'm so sick of the @#$% Mariners at this point.

I actually sent them an email telling them how disappointed I am in them, and how they've betrayed the people of Seattle. And at this point wont be attending any more games or buying any more merchandise.

Never heard back....

I sent them something along the same lines. And as long as the ownership that doesn't give a damn is there, and the two clowns in Howie and Chuckie continue to run that organization, I won't be spending a dime. On top of that, I would be rooting for every team they play until they change their stance/ownership. They sent me a "Thank you for your input" spiel. Go figure. I just cannot fathom how they thought this was a good idea.

They're so stupid, this is going to be a PR nightmare for them.

Seahawks took the right approach, "We want the Sonics back!" Then they silently went away and never said another word.

Bahahaha, not only did they pay for it, they are owning up to it as if it's some sort of badge of honor. Screw that franchise, they are dead to me.

I told them I'd be rooting for any team they play to beat them, and my fandom would not return until an owner who cared actually came in (cares enough to actually attend a game for once in his ownership) and the two clowns (Howie and Chuckie) running the team are gone.

I think Picketing Safeco Field and having signs that ask if the Mariners are going to pay for the Arena if the don't want Hansen to.

Or

The Mariners are so bad and afraid of competition that there afraid of a basketball team.
