  • I know there's a lot of opposition to anything fish, but if you look at the Ryan Muraro 2011 Seattle Sockeyes mock-up (several posts prior to this), I love the colors and the sockeye looks badass. But again, the colors -- they are BOLD and AGGRESSIVE.

    Kraken would be an interesting name, but if you compare Muraro's reddish-orange, green, and blue Sockeyes kit mock-up to Josh Crookston's blue/green/white Kraken kit mock-up, I think you'll readily see that the latter looks incredibly tame in comparison.

    Can we have a bold and aggressive uniform without using red? Red is just so not PNW to me. All the teams we route against and hate wear red (49ers, Cardinals, Texas Rangers, Angels). If anything red is Anti-Pacific Northwest...

  • The Sockeye mock-up does look good, but agree with the too much red.

    Hard to get red into a team from the PNW. Maybe were just so used to blues, greens and greys.

    The SuperSonics wore red uniforms in the 90s -

    I'd like to see other colors being used.....I'm tried of everything pro sports being either green or blue. Another color mix would be nice.

    Yea, the expansion application is for the David Bonderman and Jerry Bruckheimer ownership group. It's not an open application, its specifically for that group. So I assume they'll be paying it once awarded the expansion franchise.

  • I think they're 100% committed. They've been involved int he KeyArena renovation the whole time as well.

    Its not a coincidence that once the city approved the MOU for the Key renovation, the next day the NHL announced they can fill out the expansion team application.

    I think behind the scenes, this is all done and inevitable.

    Have there been expansion franchises that have played in other states and countries?

    I could see the Tacoma Dome, that holds 20k. But if you're the new ownership group, why rush it? Gotta lay the groundwork for your entire organizational structure, that can take years.

    Head coach, GM, assistants, scouts, internal offices like marketing to start promoting, advertising and selling season tix, etc.

    Anyway, no reason to rush this IMO. Let's do it right so we hit the ground running.

    Yep, and tens of millions for traffic mitigation.

    As much as I was rooting for Hansen, give Lieweke and the OVG group credit. They understood the political situation, came in and kicked some serious ass to get this done.

    Yep. IMHO CH was too nice, and the Seattle CC took advantage of that.
    Leiweke knew how to play the political game that’s why his plan succeeded.

  • If anyone needed another reason Not to go with the "Seattle Sockeyes":

    Davenport — a best-selling author based in Western Washington — has filed to trademark the name “Seattle Sockeyes,” as well as for another fictional football team she writes about, the “Seattle Steelheads.” She’s also written about a “Seattle Skookums” baseball team. But she has only filed to protect the name in her books — it won’t prevent a sports team from using the title.

    Last week, DetroitHockey.net reported that someone who apparently works for OVG registered 38 website domains with 13 possible team names: Cougars, Eagles, Emeralds, Evergreens, Firebirds, Kraken, Rainiers, Renegades, Sea Lions, Seals, Sockeyes, Totems and Whales. The team's potential name has become one of the hottest topics in town, igniting a mad dash for rights.

    The Kings? Really the ones that held out and held out on a buy out and flipped the bird at Seattle when we tried to buy them initially or Hansen I should say, Is the NBA and Seattle City Council doing a double bird flip to Hansen and the Sonic fans here?

    Yeah the Kings is the only part of this that irritates me.

    That's tone deaf on Silver and the NBA's part, to think we'd embrace a pre-season game with the team the league did their best to block coming here.

    Durant and the Warriors I understand, we love KD.

    I say we sell out the place with everyone wearing Sonics gear, and just scream Go Sonics for 48 minutes ignoring the game entirely.

    I think it would have been easier for sure. I still dont get the 'we need to save the roof' part of all this, but not a lot about this arena adventure has made sense honestly.

    But I do think it'll be nice when its complete, impossible to get to and get home! :D But its probably going to be pretty nice when complete.

    That's tone deaf on Silver and the NBA's part, to think we'd embrace a pre-season game with the team the league did their best to block coming here.

    Durant and the Warriors I understand, we love KD.

    I say we sell out the place with everyone wearing Sonics gear, and just scream Go Sonics for 48 minutes ignoring the game entirely.


    Ahh better yet start the Super and other side of the arena Sonics Cheer.


    I actually do think this is going to happen.

    There's a LOT of pissed off We Want our Sonics Back fans that are going to make this game their rally cry to let the league know they aren't going away until we get our team back.

    The Kings? Really the ones that held out and held out on a buy out and flipped the bird at Seattle when we tried to buy them initially or Hansen I should say, Is the NBA and Seattle City Council doing a double bird flip to Hansen and the Sonic fans here?


    Yeah the Kings is the only part of this that irritates me.

    I'm very pissed but I don't want a Sonics redux if you will.
    They stole the team like sneaky thieves..I haven't followed the NBA since.
    Would rather the new team be just that ..New name and all
    Even then I can't say I'd be a fan.The game is not the same.
    The memory of that Championship is something they cannot touch
    and I'm glad I was there to see it.

  • So yesterday Bonderman and Bruckheimer said that they also want to own an NBA team on top of NHL. Having the same owners probably helps with any scheduling issues between the two leagues and one of them is already a minority owner of the Celtics so has the connections. Given the random NBA preseason game that has just been scheduled, is it likely something is happening behind the scenes with the NBA. Expand to us and Mexico city?

    I doubt they would have hinted at the NBA yesterday unless there was something. possibly happening.

    Does this also kill SODO and Chris Hansens attempted completely? If so, I wonder what happens to all the SODO land...it certainly won't be going to the port unless the city make him sell it.

    Basketball and Hockey are two different animals when it comes to expansion.

    The NHL doesn't have the insane bajillion dollar TV contracts divided equally between all the owners, so the expansion money is FAR more important to hockey owners than it is to the NBA owners who aren't down with expansion, which means having to share the lucrative TV with one or two more owners.

    So yes, I believe that Bonderman is serious when he says he wants to own an NBA team (he's already a minority owner in the Celtics), but if I had to guess, it'd be a relocated team and not expansion.

    But the good news is he's already part of the club (unlike Hansen), so he'd be #1 on the list for relocation and new ownership once Key Arena is done if there's a floundering franchise.

    I swear they do this on purpose, so that when the nightly news and national sports media talks about it they can say "OMG SO MANY PEOPLE WERE TRYING TO GET TICKETS THE SITE CRASHED!!!"

    It's good PR.

  • This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one familiar with Seattle area politics, but a group of local property owners are looking to challenge the Key Arena renovation plan.

    Won’t let me past the paywall.

    Is it the AstroTurf group “Citizens with nothing better to do”? Led by Chris Van Dyke (aka Van Dick).

    Here's the relevant quote from the article.

    Seattle Times wrote:In a wide-ranging, 17-page letter, Seattle land-use lawyer Courtney Kaylor, representing the owners of the Expo and Astro apartment complexes, writes that a draft version of the EIS “is replete with incomplete and inconsistent statements’’ and should be “revised and republished and subject to additional public comment.’’

    Kaylor argues that since KeyArena is city-owned, the EIS should treat it as a “public project” requiring the examination of alternative arena sites under state law. The failure to do that alternative-site study, she adds, means the process “is therefore inadequate on its face.’’

  • It would seem to me that this group has no basis, this has been discussed 10 years or more very publicly and concerning multiple plans and sites, if they had a legitimate axe to grind it should have been presented then, this appearing to be a group wanting to use a stall tactic to possibly discourage the NHL or NBA from coming here.
