Definatly not that team. I wouldn't even want the Seahawks (or any NFL team for that matter). Although it would be cool if the Hawks played a preseason game down here every year, or maybe rotated between Anchorage, Vancouver and Portland or something on a yearly basis.

How about the Hansons? Then you pay tribute to the man who made it possible and to a great hockey movie as well. :sarcasm_off:

Let's call the NHL team "Hanson"--after the greatest band of all time, easy.

Whaaaaaaat??? Such a great flick!

And thinking more about it, renaming whatever hockey team that ends up here "The Chiefs" with the same logo would be a great reference to the Native culture, an all time great hockey movie, and a sly nod to Hansen because of the cult heroes in the film; The Hanson Bros (albeit different spelling)
DO IT SEATTLE!!!

If we named them The Chiefs, we'd have Native American groups accusing us of racism. :(

Huh? Why? Nobody's ever complained about the nfl's KC Chiefs. It's not a derogatory name. Why would anyone care and how is that racism? Did I miss something?

They're focusing their limited resources on the Redskns for now--that's just the beginning.

That's just stupid. "Redskins" is a derogatory term and was used as an insult. There is nothing insulting about "Chiefs" or "Totems" or anything else relating to native culture. The groups going after the redskins name will stop there.

No need to expound. I knew by your sadly failed attempt at sarcasm what you were getting at, long before you spelled it out. You're probably better off just letting it go.

And if you really don't understand the difference between "redskin" and "chief", take a drive to Browning, Montana, go into any indian bar, then offer to buy a round for all the "redskins". Hey, there's nothing wrong with that word right? So it shouldn't be a problem.

I have always found it is best to mention the free drinks right before dropping the slurs.

Where ever the grocery outlet is? That's technically 23rd and Madison, I think. But, that's where I copped my crack.

No I'm serious. I heard a spokesperson for one of the NA groups and she was asked about the other Indian-derived names and she said that they were going after the Redskins first because it was the most egregious one, and they have limited resources, but after that they're going after all the rest of them--Chiefs too.

Do you use the same terms when getting your chicken at Ezelle's up the street? It's a great place to get some chicken, walk across the street to the community center, and get into some gang sh*t.

Ya know what really pisses me off? Ezelle's isn't really Ezelle's anymore. Seriously. The original Ezelle got bought out or something, and now he runs a chicken place up on Lake City Way or something ridiculous like that. Man, when I'm about to stone-cold blast a fool with my gat, I want some authentic Ezelle's fried chicken and those awesome sweet rolls first. Mmmm. Nothing goes with murder and/or crack better than some Ezelle's fried chicken.

No I'm serious man, hey, check this out, no I'm serious. Hey. Check this out. I'm not just saying that cuz of the yayo, this satellite stuff is real man. Hey, hey, check this out, no seriously, check this out, Hey, do you got a quarter? My car broke down and I need some bus fare to Tacoma. Hey, man,check it out, you gotta be careful, those pigs are watching you man, hey man, no seriously, hey man check this out, no I'm serious.

Ha ha. I ain't making it up.
P.S. I used to score crack at 23rd and Union and have known people who worked at Ezell's--I have met both Louis and Ezell, the original owners. They split 20 years ago and one of them spun off "Ezell's Famous Fried Chicken". I have gorged on many hundreds of pieces of Ezell's. Yum yum. ;) In my opinion the end started when they switched to the injected premarinated chicken instead of marinating it manually in tubs.

Reports are coming out now that Chris Hansen did in fact fund the Sac anti arena group.

Well, unless Hansen copped to the NBA that he did this back during the initial ruckus, I'd say he's probably put himself in a position where he'll be blacklisted by the NBA for interfering in one of their public funding schemes. He's out.

If you're going to do that, make sure you a) don't get caught, b) actually get your referendum going, and c) don't get caught.

Sacramento's arena is never getting built, so honestly it is still the Kings or nothing. I'm past the NBA ever coming back myself, to be honest, so it doesn't matter to me, but this makes sense in theory - as long as you don't get caught.

naw, I don't know, If Darth Stern wasn't leaving I'd be more apt to agree..... this (Sonics-Sac) situation was more fixed than Super Bowl XL* (and that's sayin' a lot) its another reason I think they should have gone "scorched earth" on the NBA and sued the living beejesus out of that crap league.

Playing nice, with a bunch of power hungry nimrods and morons usually doesn't pay off, you have to use a language they understand, a curb stomping via lawsuit!

Playing nice, with a bunch of power hungry nimrods and morons usually doesn't pay off, you have to use a language they understand, a curb stomping via lawsuit!


Tis what I would have preferred. I get the feeling that the NBA is content with making us the boogey man anyways and not giving us a team, so might as well burn the bridge and ensure they have to find some other way to scare teams into falling in line. And if the NBA really wants to go the "moral" route on this anyways, then screw em. They lost that right a long time ago.

Well, unless Hansen copped to the NBA that he did this back during the initial ruckus, I'd say he's probably put himself in a position where he'll be blacklisted by the NBA for interfering in one of their public funding schemes. He's out.

If pinksheets says we're in trouble than were in trouble. Don't know how Chris thought this wouldn't catch up to him sooner or later. Smh. :cry:

Everything I've read or heard so far indicates he and by association we (Seattle) are screwed.

If that truly is the case, then screw Stern and the NBA, for all of this. It should have never gotten to this point in the first place, and where they get off having any moral right is beyond psychotic. I'll turn my attention towards the NHL now.

Screw Stern, yes. However this looks way bad and was way wrong on Hansens part. As far as NHL it's probably no NBA arena no NHL team.

I really don't know if this screws us or not. I've heard reports say that we're done, and others say that it is nothing. To me it depends on when the timeline was and when it all went down. If they really want to blacklist us for their own business practices, then have at it. But everyone involved has no moral highground on this, especially when they pulled this very crap a couple years ago.

And not necessarily no on the NHL team. The MOU can be changed if the proper NHL crew wants to come in and give it a whirl. Hansen would probably sell off the land and turn over the MOU to let the possible NHL ownership deal with it. Who knows at this point. I'm washing my hands of all of it.

He didn't say we're in trouble you little girl. He said if the league didn't know we are, we don't know if the league knew or not.
