    "Oklahoma City, a franchise that represents everything wrong with professional sports." - Jonathan Tjarks, SB Nation.

    This guy had other golden nuggets of insight in that article such as, "The NBA barely survived the 1980s, when the Boston Celtics and L.A. Lakers played in several NBA Finals that small-market fans from around the country refused to watch as a matter of principle." The popularity of the NBA actually skyrocketed in the 1980s...

    So, am I biased, or is this guy just an idiot?

    His bio on that website says his writing career has been in Texas (Dallas Morning News, Austin American Statesmen, etc...)

    He really isn't blaming the team or the city for anything, just the ownership group. Maybe he accuses the team of not being as awesome as Tebow.

    Probably could have made his point without this:

    Didnt read the whole article. But I have no doubt that Professional Sports is sometimes a dirty game. Large amounts of money being tossed around. Seattle lost the team by not funding them, plain and simple. Clay was just the bad guy. Now we all know that Clay saying he wanted to keep the team in Seattle was a REAL stretch but hey, don't hate the player, hate the game. The behind the scenes stuff would be happening no matter what team is where; so I have no problem with OKC getting in the mix. May as well boost our economy if we can. Looks like Aubrey and Chesapeake have been into some shady stuff here lately as well. They are no doubt in damage control right now.
