Default $$$

the stadium is an issue only in light of the desire for total control of revenue that shultz wanted.

corporate welfare is what it amounted to and holding the team in ransom with the threat of moving it didnt work

i agree that if the owners want total revenue, they should build their own stadium

unfortunately, there are many other places that will fund their desires

kudos to local officials to not buckling under.

i have been a sonic fan for MANY years but i still think it was the right thing to do. i hope they stay in the area

bellevue sonics
renton sonics

still better than the ok sonics

we'll see how the drama develops; i havent read the details yet...
