SEATTLE -- OK, Commissioner. Seattle got your latest message about a new arena. You're right. It isn't the league's fault you allowed a team with a proud and very successful 40-year history in this city to be sold to an out-of-town group which has publicly admitted it always intended to move the franchise.
Fine. But before we sign off on a deal for a $500 million arena that no one other than the new owner feels the slightest need for, I have just a few questions.
