I second Jason: https://twitter.com/JasonPuckett20/stat ... 5704659969

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.

And I realize those are all Sonic fans. The non Sonic fans already got to enjoy that wonderful windfall of $30MM that Nickels sold the Sonics for.

Aaron shares your sentiments: https://twitter.com/AaronQ13Fox/status/ ... 7648898048

They also believe that all Sonics fans live within walking distance of the Key as well.

As for No Cajones Nickels, he settled for $45 mil with that fat Okie turd, with the possibility of getting an additional $30 mil had the city approved an arena deal in 2009. Which obviously didn't happen. And if you try to confront him about it via Twitter, he'll block you. What a cowardly, gutless piece of crap.

We shouldn't even be having this "Sodo vs Key" discussion. Only in Seattle :roll:

Welp: https://twitter.com/Mynorthwest/status/ ... 6162093056

No surprise there. This does not mean that Sodo is dead. This is to determine which Key proposal the city will go with: https://twitter.com/ChrisDaniels5/statu ... 8208425984

SR's Matt Tucker has said that the two Key proposals still have some catching up to do to go toe-to-toe with Sodo although it appears to me this won't be a fair fight at all.

If Chris has some aces up his sleeve, he's going to have to play them soon.

:lol: and :roll: at AEG's recent tweet: https://twitter.com/SeattleColiseum/sta ... 6852767744

They're right, experience does matter, but so does location. No wonder this tweet is getting torn to shreds by the commentators, and rightfully so.
