But the club has not openly answered lots of questions about its rationale for the opposition that has generated such contempt and ridicule from Seattle sports fans seeking the return of the NBA -- until now.

The rationale for their opposition is simple, competition. Most people are not going to have season tickets for all 4 teams (when you include the seahawks). They are fearing people will buy NBA and NHL tickets in lieu of baseball tickets or will buy less baseball tickets.
