You're all correct that Seattle traffic doesn't sniff major city traffic. I've been in Seattle from the east coast for just over a year. The major concern, relative to Seattle, is congestion causing large amounts of people to miss the start of events. As an organization, that's the last thing you want. Plus, any successful arena has 300+ events a year. That's a must for an arena.

The Philadelphia comparison doesn't really work here. The 3 venues (Link, Citizens, Wells Fargo) are essentially built in parking lots. All around all three venues is purely parking. They don't have the same issues. It's also outside of downtown.
