Like a Gary Payton to Shawn Kemp Alley Oop this one should fire up the crowd!

A judge today found in favor of the city and the fans and denied the Sonics request for arbitration in breaking their lease. In addition he managed to throw a couple of good quotes into his ruling.

Here is a text of the ruling

When the history of this battle is written people will realize what big wins "A Deal is a Deal" and this ruling were. They have allowed us as a city to hold the line, fight back against the powers trying to steal our teams.
We opened up a window of opportunity. Ultimately the resolution of this matter will depend on what our elected officials do with that window. Now it is time to turn attention to the longer term matters and ensure that we get a new building for this team.

Great work Tom Carr!!!
