Palmer Eldritch: I propose a three-way trade: Eskimos and Sonics to Seattle, Seahawks to OKC, Mariners to Edmonton, who keep the Oilers. OKC gets the NFL to make up for the sting of losing the Thunder, Seattle will fit in fine in the CFL and will have a natural rivalry with the Lions, Seattle gets their beloved Sonics back, Edmonton gets to keep their hockey team in exchange for putting up with the Mariners' ineptitude. Everybody wins.


No way anyone would want to lose our Seahawks. The Mariners, on the other hand, can get the hell out of town for all anyone cares.

Fade2black: OtherBrotherDarryl: I'd love a hockey team here but after watching some Okie jackass steal our Sonics, I wouldn't want to do the same to another city. I imagine Edmonton's love for the Oilers is stronger than Seattle's love for any of our teams. The NHL is better off with a team in Edmonton than a team in Seattle.

Yeah...this. I want a team here in Seattle, but after having our longest tenured team ripped out from under us...I just really wouldn't feel good about taking someone else's team...especially one rooted in as much tradition in their sport/city, as we had in ours.


Too bad the city of Baltimore didn't feel the same way as you.
