Ps - this isnt some backhanded comment, im genuinely interested.
This is the only configuration I could find. It's from the Nov 2012 360 rendering. Sure the Sonics Site can or will snazz it up.

Seattle Bombers with Brampton Battalion style military-ish jerseys? I'd be a fan.

What I really find interesting is the very steep pitch of the lower bowl seats. Some of those seats look like they would be quite challenging for someone that was out of shape to access. I can think of one or two sports fanbases that look like they wouldn't be able to climb down there!

BTW the Bombers name is historic. They were one of the teams that evolved into the Totems franchise. If Totems was ever nixed Bombers should be the front runner IMO.

I'm with the Bombers name

Given the Washington states vast military bases and presence, the name would be very fitting

Interesting tidbit about the roof characteristic being a jet turbine. Does that mean an NHL team would be called the Bombers?
The Bombers name has a little bit of history for Seattle teams:

Richland H.S. in the Tri Cities are the Bombers. Hanford, one of the homes of the Manhattan Project is just north of town.

A dark Navy Blue and white or a double green scheme would look great. I'd stay away from green and yellow - blech.

I think it will be like the Whalers or Canacks (but with blue as the main color instead of green).

No navy blue please. There is enough of that in the NHL.

Hockey designs!

We also just wanted to take this opportunity to share a couple pictures for all the diehard hockey fans out there of what this building will look like for an NHL game. The bottom line is as good as this is for basketball, it is an even better building for hockey.

As can be seen in the pictures above, as with most NBA/NHL buildings we have designed the seats behind the backboard/goal to retract backwards and the first few rows of courtside seating can be removed to accommodate hockey's largest playing surface and dasher board. The net result puts hockey fans even closer to the action, including our pocket suites. Given the size of the playing surface and speed of the game, we also think the Sonic Rings will prove to be one of the most unique and valued viewing experiences in the game.

While I know there may have been a few skeptics out there, I have to say I am just as pumped as most of you to see the return of professional hockey to Seattle, and honestly can't wait to see this building bursting at the seams with crazed Seattle hockey fans.

What did Seattle do to deserve such a Champion citizen in Hansen?

Three red lines too.

Not as big deal as the missing benches, but the attention to detail is not there

Thought so, but it would have been nice to see them in the rendering. Brings it "home" more, imo.

Yea it won't look like that with the final design. You need an entry way for the zamboni as well as the players. NBA rendering didn't have a table for the score board operators

As a concept design it looks great. Like with the exterior look of the arena it'll evolve over time.

I like Thunderbirds as a name... It lends itself to a lot of options like totem art or aerospace themes

Not really sure, feels like dumb luck honestly. The political atmosphere has driven away several cool sporting ventures.
