Sonicsgate MovementJanuary 2012

Happy 2012 to all of the Sonics faithful!  Special honors today for the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who is a true American hero and inspiration to all modern nonviolent grassroots movements.

It's been a busy few months since we last updated you. 
Check out the latest news below.  2012 is going to be a huge year in the movement to Bring Back Our Seattle SuperSonics!  We've got a few more things up our sleeve this year, stay tuned...

ArenaSolution goes public  

Chris Daniels of King 5 interviews Brian Robinson and Craig Kinzer covering potential land deals that could end up with the state of Washington getting multiple professional athletic teams.  Check out the Puget Sound Business Journal article for more info, and be sure to sign up as a Member or Volunteer at as we prepare for the big push!    


Valiant Partners of San Francisco have purchased a little more than three acres of land just south of Safeco Field in the SoDo area. There is a lot of speculation as to what the land will be used for, but sources say the land may be used to construct a stadium that would help Seattle in its efforts to bring NBA and NHL teams to the region.  


Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Hope continues his efforts to put together legislation in Olympia that would help the economy with new arena funding without taxing the public.   


In related news, Mayor Mike McGinn hired an official arena consultant to the dismay of certain members of the Seattle City Council. Call and write the City Council today to politely express your support for Mayor McGinn's efforts!
