Seahawks owner Paul Allen gives thoughts on Seattle/Sacramento situation

Seattle Seahawks’ owner Paul Allen, who also  owns the NBA Portland Trail Blazers, was asked about the Seattle/Sacramento battle over the Kings prior to Portland’s game Wednesday night.

Here’s what he said, according to Comcast SportsNet:

“I think the league announced that there wasn’t going to be a decision at this owners meeting. If there was, I’d be back in New York talking to people, forming my opinion. I think it’s a tough call. While I supported the Sonics staying in Seattle when they ended up leaving, I think in general there’s some feeling that if there’s good fan support and there’s good political support sufficient to have a state of the art facility, that’s more than enough reason to keep a franchise in the same place.Then you can get into all the parameters of who has made the best offer, who hasn’t made the best offer. It’s a very difficult thing. Steve Ballmer is a very good friend of mine and I think he would be a great owner. I reserve my final decision.”
