  • 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

    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

    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!

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • mitch levy ‏@kjrmitch
    Arena Alert: Just heard that negotiations are ongoing between Chris Hansen and Seattle Council. And - while slow - progress being made.
    mitch levy ‏@kjrmitch

    Consensus is that we are getting close to an agreement on adjustments to the MOU.
    mitch levy ‏@kjrmitch

    If a deal is struck shortly, a Seattle Council vote would happen when they reconvene in September and then go back to County for vote.
    mitch levy ‏@kjrmitch

    Almost zero RT @Dawgfan1974 what are the chances they "strike a deal" and the city then votes it down?
    mitch levy ‏@kjrmitch

    Before return RT @Reignman206 If not today, do you think a deal is announced over two week break or silent until they return in Sept?
    mitch levy ‏@kjrmitch

    Yes RT @Reignman206: @kjrmitch one last one. Should I assume that if deal okay with city that county vote would be formality?

  • Yep, especially important to turn the heat up to an inferno during the recess, where it's likely we'll have an agreement in principle that'll cause the Portly Bunch to throw every last smear they can in what will likely be a last ditch effort to derail this thing.

    Haha. Same here. I too have been a bit less keyed in on the Hawks due to the arena fight. Getting back more into it now with actual games. But I totally get you.

    And yes, Pinksheets is dead on. The closer this thing gets, the more desperate and ridiculous the Port and it's cronies will get. We have to stay diligent. Key calling and emailing the Seattle City Council, and keep fighting the good fight on Twitter. Can't get complacent or let up now.

  • -shrug- I wasn't worried about the Kings anyway, it seems to me with the way Hansen talks and looking at the Bucks situation that they are the team in the crosshairs of Hansen if this happens.

    Maloofs still have to get back in the good graces of the NBA for them to approve the move anyway.

  • This is the point where you hope they have all the bases covered, we don't want no Pre mature exhilaration to happen and some group step up and want additional clauses thrown in.

    Just want to point out that this isn't the official Hansen group twitter & instead just a deceiving fan account. It annoys me that whoever runs it doesn't go out of their way to make it more obvious. Pointing this out so people don't get confused like before.

    What's happened is that Mitch today said on his show that he's hearing that a deal is basically agreed upon. That they just need to dot the i's and cross the t's. That an announcement could come as soon as today, but more likely sometime next week. Hansen and the City both have said today that nothing has been agreed upon. But all signs are looking good. Mitch has been on point on this thing. So I take it to mean something. Fingers crossed.

    Sounds like we're getting real close. We can't let up though. Keep emailing & calling the city council members! It's the final minutes of the 4th qtr. Close out time!
