Like Ardel said, bye bye Sonics. From the start of the trial, the City looked like a bunch of Rookies playing against The Celtics. It is unfortunate the poor political leadership of Washington (Gregoire, Sims, Nickels and the Seattle Council and then some) is not confident in their own decisions to call a spade a spade. The smug look on the mayor and the council members was telling they could care less about sports in Seattle (if not Washington). Since the start of this all, they have said it was “never not about a cash settlement to Seattle.” In the end, it was made to be a cash settlement.
Lets hope they all know something we do not! If they don’t, once again, another political stumble… it will be interesting to see how this plays out in up and coming elections.
