Re: Key Arena RFP begins on January 11th

Well, so much for the Q & A session that was supposed to go down this evening: https://twitter.com/JasonPuckett20/stat ... 9213819905

I have to agree with the responses, it appears neither the city nor the two Key redevelopment groups want to take heat for both proposals. Oh well, at least everyone got their fill of cupcakes! :roll:

Also, if OVG can't get the POS to help pay for their parking garage, they can always ask the public!: https://twitter.com/JasonPuckett20/stat ... 5980130304

Although they did say they would pay of it themselves if they had to. However, I can't believe they would even entertain that idea in the first place.

Both Key proposals are starting to unravel...

I have never been to the Portland Timbers stadium, but I just looked it up on a map. It looks to me like the stadium is very near to two different freeways in addition to having a light rail station. It doesn't look like much of a comparison to the Key's location.

Shuttle buses are great like they have at Husky stadium, but there is no real place to put them at the center.

Hm, perhaps getting to the Key by drones isn't as far-fetched as it seems: https://twitter.com/JasonPuckett20/stat ... 5274072065

Interesting that Gael has yet to respond to this. Gee, what a surprise :roll:

On a sad note, everyone is aware of what happened today. It's a damn shame we couldn't get the Sonics back before he died: https://twitter.com/Phil_Buck/status/865234719478362113

RIP Chris. And you are right, it is "bulls**t" about what happened nearly nine years ago.

Former POS Commissioner Gael Tarleton said that there's no room for the Storm at Sodo arena and thus, why they'd prefer to play at the Key. Which is not true in their recent statement from a couple days ago, as well as the fact that the Storm are welcome to play at Sodo should it get chosen. And as far as I know, she hasn't responded yet to what was said.

Latest SR article asks where everyone stands on Seattle's ongoing arena saga: http://www.sonicsrising.com/2017/5/19/1 ... cs-nba-nhl

I picked the second option. Although I won't be thrilled if the Key is chosen in the end, all that matters is that we get the NBA and NHL back. However, I doubt I'll be attending as many games as I would whereas at Sodo I would. I'm also concerned of the long term viability of the Key as well.

In a normal world The SCC would take into account the fact that 95% of people prefer SODO.
