I hate to go off the topic but just answering your question.

I am talking about the Jazz.

I know NO is good, which is why the fact nobody supports the team is pathetic.

Imagine they moved to Seattle? The support they would get is mind boggiling.

In 2006, the Sonics were sold to an investment group led by Clayton Bennett, who said the team would stay in Seattle if a new arena complex was built. Yet, in August 2007, Sonics co-owner Aubrey McClendon announced publicly to The Journal Record that, "we didn't buy the team to keep it in Seattle; we hoped to come here." After receiving a private warning from NBA commissioner David Stern, Bennett responded, assuring Stern that, "As absolutely remarkable as it may seem, Aubrey and I have NEVER discussed moving the Sonics to Oklahoma City, nor have I discussed it with ANY other member of our ownership group
or better yet go here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle...klahom a_City

The sonics have always had a bad lease on the Key Arena with Seattle. Howard Schultz, former owner, was losing too much money, and sold the team to Clay Bennett and a group from OKC. Clay promised to make a "good faith" effort to keep the team in Seattle. This "Good Faith" Effort consisted of complaining about the lease, getting Stern to deem the Key Arena unsuited to play basketball in, and propose a 100% Publicly funded arena in Renton, WA (South of Seattle). Seeing that this arena would cost $500 million, and not one cent would come from Bennett, it was shot down in the vote. To Bennett, this meant that Seattle wanted no part of the NBA. However, he still had a lease with Seattle until 2011 to use the Key Arena (From old ownership). Realizing the outrage that would come up if the city did nothing, the city sued Bennett for trying to break the lease early, trying to keep the team in Seattle for two more seasons (This trial). Today, the two sides settled out of court.

Howard Schultz also realized that Bennett never had any intention of keeping the Sonics in Seattle. He is now suing for Breach of contract, hoping to get the team back. This trial will probably start at the end of the summer (rough guess).

If Toronto had it's team stolen I'd be smashing up cars with a baseball bat. Any fan that really feels a connection to their team has to empathize with the sonics plight. Vent away.

Stern was pretty hardline during the stadium negations. He might just keep another team out of there as prove of his wrath when cities don't capitulate to a stadium shakedown.

Sorry sonics fans. Must be like losing a family member.

You're welcome to jump on any team without being called bandwagoners.
