It has nothing to do with “supposed nobility” about anything for me. It’s all to do with how the relocation went down. Everyone was complicit in a big lie told to the people of Seattle, from Bennett to Schultz and, most importantly, then-commissioner Stern. Nobody likes losing their pro sports team, but it should have been advertised as such when the deal went down. None of this “we will make our efforts about keeping the team in SEA as our number one option” bull crap and then shuffling away the franchise in the dead of night.
