I hope they have. I would love to have our Sonics back, but not if it means we are robbing another city and its fans.
It's all perspective really... Our owner is not buying this team with any intention of asking the city of Sacramento to buy him a $500 million arena... He's got a privately financed arena in Seattle.
Hansen has made no promises to season ticket prices flat for the next 5 years...
Every Sonic fan knew that there was really only one way to get a franchise back in seattle... We were going to break some other city's hearts.
Schultz made demands for a new arena with no promises or desire to work with the city. Sacramento bent over backwards for the Kings and their owners are the ones that gave up on the city.
