    Former Sonics GM Wally Walker makes his pitch for SoDo over KeyArena

    SEATTLE – Wally Walker wants to bring the Sonics back to Seattle. The former president and general manager of the team has been part of Chris Hansen’s group trying to build a privately funded arena in the SoDo district since 2011. His ties to the NBA and the Pacific Northwest run deep. He played for the Portland Trail Blazers and the SuperSonics before spending 12 years leading Seattle’s front office. He says he’s open to other options to build an […]

  • Commentary: Sounders on brink of unprecedented success in Seattle sports

    Amidst all the Seahawks talk and fallout from last night’s Apple Cup, the one local story with the greatest potential sat somewhat dormant this weekend, but can’t be ignored. The Sounders have a chance to do something never done before in Seattle sports: Winning a professional league championship in back-to-back years. This Thursday night at CenturyLink Field, the Sounders can advance to the MLS Cup for the second straight season with either a win, a draw, or a one-goal loss […]

  • SODO group claims clause in OVG contract could hinder return of Sonics

    A clause in the proposed Memorandum of Understanding with developer Oak View Group to renovate KeyArena could put a huge wrench in efforts to build a SODO Arena. The clause, Section 1 (b) of the MOU that deals with “exclusivity,” says in part “…the city shall not provide financial support, benefits or incentives (other than those generally available to any potential developer) with respect to the construction of any live entertainment venue with a capacity of more than 15,000 seats […]

  • Carroll: With Sherman down, Lane and Griffin will get their moment in the spotlight

    RENTON, Wash. – It’s time again for the Seattle Seahawks’ favorite mantra: Next man up. With Richard Sherman out for the season, and Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas both battling injuries of their own, the Seahawks will get a chance to see what their backups are made of. During his weekly exclusive interview with the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX, coach Pete Carroll talked about the “exciting opportunities” the injuries are providing, as well as how the team will […]

  • Commentary: Flawed arena process needs to be re-evaluated by new mayor and city council

    If you’re a fan of “The Twilight Zone,” you can see a new episode in person this Thursday morning at 10:30 inside Seattle City Council chambers. That’s the next committee meeting on civic arenas – or at this point, the singular “arena” – as KeyArena supporters come out of the woodwork, rarely found anywhere else I go, but front and center at these important council meetings. Now, let me be clear: I appreciate the intent of an aggressive timeline on […]

  • ‘Remember November’: Pete Carroll says Seahawks’ remarkable success in November no accident

    Dating back to 2012, the Seahawks are a ridiculous 15-4 in November - the best in the NFL.

  • Commentary: On biggest stage, MLB, Astros dropped the ball

    We hear it all the time: An athlete breaks a team rule – misses a meeting, breaks a curfew – and they’re suspended. “Shouldn’t have done that,” the coach says. “You hurt the rest of your team.” In Game 3 of the World Series, cameras caught Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel making a racist gesture and uttering a racial slur. Whether his intent was malicious or not isn’t the issue. It was offensive to many. It was inappropriate. As baseball […]
