  • I've always commended them for the move. I just don't like the idea of trolling OKC, I think there were better ways to keep us visible after the movie.

    Now the dudes from Sactown Royalty could easily take the idea and apply it to troll us. I don't want that, I want the dads who have been eyeing tickets for a while to get a chance to buy them and take their sons or daughters to see a Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, or Carmelo Anthony, and not go to some guy who decided he feels like he needs to make a statement.

  • Do you feel that they were trolling OKC fans though or making sure that they were still seen? I don't know what else they could have done? What's going to attract more attention, attending random games? The biggest impact will always be to attend high profile OKC games in OKC or when they travel to Portland.

    I could see how that might bother you but I think what they've done is make sure that people realize that the Sonics were not forgotten. Our fans did not give out on the team, Kings fans did not give out on their team. Sonicsgate (which I can't watch; it's too infuriating) is the story how fans are the ones left holding the bill when the League, ownerships and local government doesn't fight for them.

    I don't know how many dads are going to buy floor seats behind the team bench for their kids. I have never heard anyone from Sonicsgate speak disparagingly about the fans of OKC. Sonicsgate is actively supporting Sacramento's efforts to keep their team or educate them on what they can do to keep the fight going.

    Every fan knew that the best option for the Sonics' return was franchise relocation (expansion was never a feasible idea). That means that every team was in jeopardy of losing their team. Now is the NBA standing pat and allowing Hansen to fool the city into thinking he has any interest in keeping the team in Sacramento... of course not. Per Aubrey McClendon, "We didn't buy the team to keep it in ______." Now there is no fake efforts or demands for a 100% entire public-funded arena.

  • Well, when Hansen entered an agreement to pay for most of an arena project all that went out the window, how dumb do you think the people of Sacramento are if you think Hansen would do what Bennett did?

    I think the movie they did was more than enough though, I think after the impact of the movie was felt it was time to focus on the root of the issue of why they aren't here, an Arena. But everyone played a role in whats happened now. The Sonicsgate guys for keeping the proof that the fans were still around, and Brian Robinson with Arena Solutions. Even though I don't particularly like some of their methods, I can still appreciate what they've done.

    But! I think we can agree on this.

    Thank the lord for Chris Hansen, and what he's done for us.

    It's cool to get excited about the Kings roster or watching them and thinking about them being the Sonics... but don't be a turd and be this guy.

    P.S. OKC has Payton and Watts OKC Thunder jersies in their ring of honor.


    You sure about that? I have seen pics of the interior of their arena and haven't seen them.

  • I've come to grips with the reality that I don't care that much about Sacramento fans for me not to get a team to root for in Seattle.

    I think the better option would be a new franchise... actually the better option would our team never leaving.

    Sorry Kings fans, I want a team.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • I f that pic is in OKC I have not problems, if it's in Sac then it is pretty tasteless. Reason being the circumstances on which the two situations have come about. Us bought by a douchebag liar. Sac presently owned by a doucebag family and were going in under no pretence to not move them.

    Wrong. I'd love to know where these silly rumors are being perpetuated. There is no Ring of Honor at Chesapeake arena.

    And for those wondering, that pic of that Sonics douche is NOT at Chesapeake arena. Looks like he trolled a random Kings game somewhere.

    This pic was taken in Wash DC when the Bullets... I mean Wizards were playing the Kings.
