It's not that we're just fu*king haters. There is two things:

1) I won't lie, it's hard to see so much history taken away from you. All those years of watching them, and then for the last 3-5 years watching them such awful basketball, and then they go to OKC and after one season there they are the best young team in the NBA. Durant came for one season and gave us a taste of what he'd be like. Just a total fu*kign tease.

2) I hate fans in Seattle that root for OKC. They aren't your fu*king team anymore. Like I listed in my other post above, they are a COMPLETELY different team and the only thing that ties them to Seattle, is that they used to be our team and that Nick Collison and Durant are there. Either pick a new team or root for the closest team (Portland).
So, loyalty is just out of the question for the people of Seattle? And by your logic the Texas Longhorns should hate KD too. Pull your panties out your vajayjay...he gone.

Just watched the two-hour documentary posted on page one of the thread. I'm not basketball fan at all and don't live anywhere near Oaklahoma City or Seattle. Seems to me as for whatever reason, Seattle government thinks they're better than the rest of the franchise cities and shouldn't have to subsidize sports teams. So in actuality, they made their own bed.

Sucks as fan though. Sure, I've been to about two Pistons games in 35 years, but if they were ever to leave, I'd be sick about it.
THIS

People should just watch the damn documentary, its 2 hours. I know there are plenty of no job havin a.ss ppl on here with free time out the a.ss, and for those who can youtube at work, it's on there in full.

It's a fantastic documentary that really shows another side of sports, the nasty political/financial side of ownership. I agree with the above poster, the city of Seattle didn't want to subsidize any more sports arenas and the fault ultimately lies with them.

But the film raises great points overall about the leverage that these leagues hold over cities. Basically telling them, build an arena or we will leave/not come to your town. That is an unfortunate thing that has happened, and unless every city united to oppose public subsidies for arenas(which will never happen), that's the way its going to go from now on.

It's unfortunate that an economist didn't take to the relatively easy task of measuring, in dollars, the economic impact of having a professional sports franchise vs. the tax dollar spent to build a stadium, and present it to the legislature as well as the media. I would guess that the hotel rooms booked, food/drink venue sales, etc would outnumber eventually the sales tax referendum. However this shifts surplus from consumers to suppliers - a very republican idea in a very, very democratic state legislature and state overall.

^ Because of this mainly(the opposition to subsidies by voters/elected officials), Seattle has no team. Not to mention the collusion of stern/bennet, and the overall sleaziness of those two to begin with.

Some will bring up the ballmer proposal - to which I say too little too late. If you would have voted an arena to begin with, bennet would have been contractually bound to Seattle. Sure he wanted to move from the getgo, but the city/state congress gave him a BIG help.
