In all you incoherent ramblings you have stated one fact, that Schultz sold to Bennett.I'm sorry you view facts as "incoherent ramblings" but too many of you ignored the facts or temporarily forgot them in favor of blaming Clay Bennett for everything. You won't get away with that.
How is one not a slime ball/scumbag etc when his demands are met but changes them? Talk about facts, I gave you the facts. Every single one of his demands he made in front of the city council was met.That's a creative attempt, but once again, it was his team. He paid $350 million for it. He can change his mind whenever he wants.
Bennett is a scum bag but Schultz is at fault for putting the city in the situation.Ahhh, so Bennett is still a "scum bag" but you simply say Schultz is at fault. Would it kill you to call Schultz a scum bag a third of the time you call Bennett one? He is, after all, how you ended up without the NBA in Seattle.
And no, Schultz is not the reason Seattle does not have a team.Yes it is. Bennett does not enter the mix without the actions of the Schultz group. Period.
Starbucks screwed Seattle and they still drink that @ssmilk like its candy.
You're mister "facts" Schultz did not relocate the team did he?Yes, I am Mr. Facts. I'm sorry you'd rather be an ostrich and keep your head in the sand, but I'm always here to light you a candle rather than to curse your darkness. You're welcome.
When he demanded that, Bellevue and Renton stepped up, but he changed his demands to 3 certain locations in Seattle that were already occupied.Stepped up as in built a new arena? I don't think so. Nice try.
Even with a new arena he would not have been able to sell the Sonics for the value in which he bought the team, Revenues streams were there to be had but Bennett wanted nothing to do with the city of Seattle and Howard Schultz doesn't have the b*lls to ask for it. He would rather cower in his little chair and have David Stern do all the talking.You clearly have no understanding of simple economics. If the Sonics were playing in a new $500m arena with lots more luxury boxes, restaurants, and seats, he would be able to sell the team for far more than the $350m he paid with that team stuck in KeyArena.
Noone is putting all the blame on Bennett. He is just a scumbag. A guy who consistantly lies, a guy who will not let his star player be interviewed with any local media, exactly which of those are endearing qualities? He is about 10th or so on the list of people who Sonics fans should blame but does not take away the fact the guys is a slimeballWow. If Bennett is 10th on your hit list, I hate to see the kind of hateful rhetoric you'd use for the people in the 1-9 slots, but to date I've never heard any hateful rhetoric such as the kind of words you use describing Bennett, such as "slimball" or "scumbag"
I truly hope this thread is a poor representation of OKC fans and not how they act on average... freakin pathetic
