    So just got back from probably the last Sacramento Kings game. The Kings dont mean nearly as much to me as the Quakes did, but you looked around today in that arena and you saw the pain. I remembered it again, what it was like for us and how brutal that was. Thank goodness we never have to go through that again, and thank goodness we are getting this stadium built. But really, no fans deserve that. People were pretty devastated today after that game. Hopefully theyre able to stick around but it doesnt look good.

    stay classy, landycakes: from his twitter:
    It's so cute to see the Queen fans get all excited and think they're going to win, only to lose to the Champs once again. #seeyouinAnaheim

    Though my NBA team is the Golden State Warriors, I absolutely hope that a solution can be found to keep the Kings in Sacramento (or at the very least, for not enough NBA owners to vote for relocation).

    The Kings are my NBA team too. What a little tool. As long as he's a member of the USMNT I'm now rooting against them. ******** the USMNT, ******** the Galaxy, and ******** Landon********ingdonovan. I hope he gets eaten by wild dogs.

    The Buffalo Braves relocated to San Diego more than 30 years ago and the NBA has been dead to me since.

    Hopefully (though a longshot), someone can step in at the last minute and save the hoop Kings or at least--the league's owners goes against the trade. Literally that's their only game in the Capital--it's a shame they can't get the arena in downtown Sacramento built needed to retain the team. Having any team move is the last thing the fans want.

    Fans, former owners and players (Webber) has launched a campaign to keep the Kings, but it may have been too late. As the primary sports franchise I've come to support living locally, it will be terrible if the Kings leave from a fans standpoint. Here we stay!

    I've lived in Sac, I know Sac, Sac is a friend of mine. ANAHEIM IS NO SACRAMENTO. Kings, stay in Sac.

    Sucks about the Kings... but at this point, it's pretty much a done deal. Unless something on the Anaheim side falls apart at the last minute, there will be no Sacramento Kings next year. Hello Anaheim Royals. :(

    Donovan is obviously a Lakers fans. Typical Lakers fan bragging about barely beating a team that have literally HALF the payroll (40+ mil) as that the Lakers have (90+ mil). A lesson to all of us that MLS should NEVER reach the level of corruption and inequality ruled by money that the NBA has.

    The Kings came back from being down 20 points.. If it wasn't for a Kobe 3-pointer to tie it up in the final seconds to take the game to OT, the Kings could have won. But they are terrible in OT so everyone knew the game was pretty much over. Bye bye, Kings. :(

    Just an FYI, NBA guru Bill Simmons just wrote this on facebook about the pending move.

    If only I had my late cousin's old Buffalo Braves pennant... Bob McAdoo is as oldschool as one can get, and Ernie DiGregorio reminded one a bit of a Steve Nash/John Stockton.

    similarly, the San Diego Clippers relocated to LA. F*** LA. i will never root for an LA team. should the chargers move there, thats the end of that as well.

    although, if the Kings were to move to San Diego, i might just care about NBA

    I live in Sac, and without the Kings, that town is going to have a massive void. I don't have a connection to the Kings like the Quakes, but it still sucks. I know a lot of people who are feeling the pain very deep and love the Kings like I love the Quakes, and it brings back old memories of 2005. The Maloofs are idiots, and I hope their adventure to Disneyland is a colossal failure.

    And as for Landycakes, what else would we expect? He is, and will always be a massive tool.

    What dick Donovan is how could it even cross your mind to kick a team and its fans when their this down. Seems even Laker fans should know not to be such pricks but I guess that is asking to much.

    One of the things I hate the most about American sports is that teams can just leave their cities. I know its a business but its generally the owners fault revenues aren't as high as they should be not the fans. Well see what the future of CA sports is now that it will be more difficult to build new stadiums since government money won't be as available as its been in the past they can't all move to Anaheim.

    Come on, it's Donovan. He wasn't exactly sad when San Jose lost our team in the sport he actually plays. What made you think he'd have any compassion for basketball fans. He's a tool. Always has been, always will be. Until his time is done on the USMNT I can't in good conscience root for the United States at the international level. I hope we get knocked out of the first round of every event from now til Donovan goes back under whatever rock he came out from under.

    In my property law class in my first year of law school at Stanford, we studied the ill-fated suit by the City of Oakland against the Raiders to exercise eminent domain to prevent the team's departure for L.A. in the early 1980s.

    Law school is not so much about lectures as it is about back-and-forth argumentation (much like on BigSoccer, only without the level of authoritativeness seen here.) I argued in class then, as I still do now, that since pro sports teams are selling civic pride as much as they are athletic competition, municipalities should have the option to condemn them and acquire ownership by paying fair market value, just as they would a parcel of land for a hospital.

    The professor, who favored the law-and-economics school of jurisprudence in vogue during the Reagan era, countered that the market should dictate where teams play and that if, therefore, L.A. and Anaheim ended up with a league full of teams betwen them (they had both the Raiders and the Rams at the time), that was perfectly fine.

    I was jeered by my many classmates from Southern California when I urged that the notion of every team in SoCal and none elsewhere was absurd on its face.

    But I (provisionally) have had the last laugh. SoCal has since lost both its NFL teams, with the Raiders returning to Oakland where they belong. Lesson, untaught by my right-wing property law professor: what goes around comes around.
    Capt. Socceroo repped this.

    "Football, the most global sport, has ironically become the vessel for the most fervent and eccentric localist impulses. In a world of unacknowledged city-states, our clubs allow us to rally to the flags that matter."

    Precisely.
