However there was 1-2 times last year where the Sounders and Mariners overlapped. On Sept 17/2011, I went to the Ms game which started at 410pm and then to the Sounders game which started at 600pm. That is not 4 hours apart.
Other cities have their arenas & events in the same day - look at LA with the Lakers-Clippers-Kings situation. Toronto has the ACC (Leafs & Raptors) right by the Skydome (Jays & Argos). Vancouver has Rogers Arena & BC Place across the street from each other and often have had Lions & Canucks games at the same time.
I don't think traffic is the issue with the mariners. Its 2 more pro teams in seattle. It creates competition that my guess they do not like.
