Arrow Sonics Hire Firm to Design Seattle Area Arena

Quote:
Perhaps the Sonics won't be leaving the Seattle area after all.

Clay Bennett, Chairman of the Seattle Sonics and Storm ownership group, will host a news conference on Wednesday to announce the retention of an architecture and design firm to design a new multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena in the greater Seattle region.
Oh yeah!

Perhaps the Sonics won't be leaving the Seattle area after all.

Clay Bennett, Chairman of the Seattle Sonics and Storm ownership group, will host a news conference on Wednesday to announce the retention of an architecture and design firm to design a new multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena in the greater Seattle region.

a design of a new arena could be used just about anywhere....


the key issues are not addressed in this declaration:

who will pay for a new arena?

even with the possibility of a new arena in the bell-red corridor, bennet says he wans th city (whatever city) to make "significant contributions". the 'burbs are not going to commit major $$$ to this privately owned team by raising taxes-- the atmosphere is very much against public financing for the sonics

it is probably a smokescreen to give us a false sense of hope for fans not abandon the sonics as a "lame duck" team and to buy more tickets

i sincerely do hope i am wrong

Sweet!! I just can't follow hoops, if the Sonics were to leave Seattle. I grew up watching those great Sonic teams of the late 70s,80s, and 90s. I am glad to hear the good news.
