See Ya Sonics
The sonics should stand on their own two feet and not on the necks of hard working tax payers. If IBM ask us to build them a building we would say get lost. These sports franchises make so much money (high ticket prices, high cost merchandisea and high cost food) that they can afford to pay their players hundreds of millions of dollars. Then they have the balls to ask people who make 30 or 40 thousand dollars a year to build them an arena which the Sonics will get all the profits from and the people are left with bill. What a scam.
