Then why do they talk 49ers so much on Sacramento radio?
Sacramento isn't in competition with any of those cities. That doesn't make any sense. Sacramento msa has population of over 2 mil. The climate, economy, and people are different from those in the bay area. This isn't dinky Washington state where one city represents an entire state.
Sacramento is half the size and has a fraction of the corporate base as that city you mischaracterize as representing the entire state. Tell that to the Blazers fans in Vancouver.
Kj is doing this in the small hopes the city will convince the bog to vote down Hansen. He is also said that regardless of their decision, that the city is getting a new arena. He said this long before the maloof brothers cut their ties with him and refused to negotiate with the city or a potential local buyer. That's what you people from Seattle and other areas are refusing to recognize, you want to blame the city and fans of Sacramento when the owners have never tried to sale locally.
#1 the sale isn't getting blocked. KJ is playing for the future whether it is a Charlotte type deal or setting himself up to be the next head of the player union.
#2 We don't blame Sacramento, we blame OKC and David Stern's NBA franchise reality. At the end of the day, the NBA wants a team in OKC more than they do Sacramento I guess.
