Yeah, it's a copy of that.

@55 just because an NHL preseason game never sold out doesn't mean NHL wouldn't draw here. Come on man. The minor league Sounders barely drew anybody, the Sounders sell out every game now.

@42 Bonds being paid off ahead of time for both stadiums. Seahawks stadium was passed by the voters (something anti sports anti arena folks always ignore) and the Mariners deal approved by the legislature was different than the deal barely defeated by the public. Again, enough with the revisionist history.

@44 It won't be built until a team is secured. Read the plan dude.

@22 explain how we've been screwed in the football and baseball stadium?

No, many large concerts (non Lynyrd Skynyrd) skip over Seattle on their tours because Key Arena is inadequate in many respects, especially when it comes to load in and load out. So the concerts that require 6 trucks to be unloaded at once usually go to Portland and Vancouver instead.

@96 WRONG. The total amount for land is capped at $100 million. That is fact, and it's up to $100 million based on appraised value. I get it you hate rich people. But please, get the deal correct before you start spewing your hatred.

@83 He paid $25 mil for the land? Where did you pull that number from? That's not even half of what he's paid for land. And the city amount is capped at $100 mil for the land so not sure where you get the $175 mil. Again, bad info, read the deal, quit spewing nonsense and lies.

@74 It causes me to spend entertainment dollars in Seattle that I may spend elsewhere, which is why it is a good deal for Seattle.

Prime example why Seattle needs a better concert venue.

If you don't want to pay for the arena, its quite simple, don't attend an event there. Not sure what is so complicated for you. You guys can attend your green festivals and hemp festivals and ignore us idiot rubes that like something like sports that you don't. But hey, you're the open minded ones.
