Now that you’ve had a few weeks to look at the two Key Arena renovation proposals, I thought it was time to take your temperature in regards to the arena plans under consideration by the City of Seattle.

The following poll is the thermometer, but there are only two options - in the arm pit or under the tongue.

Please answer the poll question and give us your reasoning in the comments section.

Sonics Rising has no official position on this issue, but as many of you have been curious to say the least about where our staff members stand, some of us agreed to summarize our arena preferences below. Since some of my fellow writers took my request for two or three paragraphs and wrote the Magna Carta instead, I have converted their summaries into slideshow form. Click through each slide to read them.
