Fear and hysteria will ensue as this will take a comical route with Seattle announcing a new arena.

Let the relocation threats begin. What an embarrassment.

Well that's a nice black cloud to start the season with. So instead of the focus being on a great up and coming team we get to hear all the BS about moving to Seattle I guess.

I'm sure the timing alongside news of a new Seattle arena is purely coincidental.

And with the announcement from Seattle today this is both painfully obvious and cringe inducing.

This organization really makes it hard to cheer for it sometimes. Geez.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

About as believable as Sam Bennett's agent's threat that he'd play in Europe.

Ken King has presided over a complete cluster#### for years now.

He can't even deliver a plan that appeals to fans on a fans forum. What hope did he have with City Hall?

What will it take for this organisation to get rid of him?

I think Murray Edwards is finally voicing his opinion. "Give us what we've been asking for or we'll find someone who will". Never thought it would come to this.

That.

Timing of the municipal election.

Response to Nenshi's "bold plan".

These kind of games are just childish. Both sides. What a downer to start a season on. This will hang over the club all year. Going to be a distraction.

Clearly Murray Edwards has decided to play politics by dropping this bomb heading into the municipal election - not sure it doesn't backfire though.

^ What has the City done recently that you would describe as childish? I don't see the equivalence (based, at least, on what we know so far).
