    Your personal life experience does not dictate what somebody else thinks about the city of Portland. Get over it.

    His Location tag was not directed at any individual in a derogatory way . I don't see how its worthy of your relentless scrutiny.
    You seem to be confused about the difference between "thought" and "speech." He didn't think it, he posted it.

    His avatar was a photo saying "Portland Sucks" and his tagline was "America's Suicide Capital." I don't think it's much of a stretch to call that highly offensive.

    His reaction to being challenged on it was to change his avatar, pretend it never happened, and accuse me of "trolling" him. So there's that.

    He's on my ignore list so I'm done with it from here on out.

    Finally, speaking of speech, it's my right to express displeasure with the content of someone's post. Get over it.

    You're correct, its your right to complain about whatever grinds your gears, regardless how frivolous or self righteous it may be.

    Sacramento has done everything that should be needed to keep their team. If you do everything that they have done then you shouldn't lose your team.

    Since I helped derail the thread I'll get back on-topic. I'd really like to see the Kings stay in Sacramento, the city seems to really really want to keep the team and they've had a loyal fanbase over the years.

    I hate that this has sort of been turned into a Seattle vs. Sacramento discussion. I think BOTH cities deserve teams. Hopefully this will pan out for everyone in the long run.

    Seattle should just wait until there is a team that doesn't have a city that wants to build a new arena.

    And where were these buyers when they were trying to find a local buyer to keep the team in Seattle to begin with?

    No, my reaction to it was to quietly change it just to stop you from trolling, to be blunt. There was never any, "pretend it never happened." That's just a figment of your imagination.

    Whether or not he's right, that's certainly how it looked.

    I used the Portland Sucks/Suicide Capital avatar/tagline combo for months.

    I've been taking in the conversation about the Kings franchise over on the KingsFans forum and one of the posters asked me to share this video synopsis of the last 4 years of the situation...
