Blame team loss on right people

I have been very pleased lately to see people write letters to the editor in not only The Herald, but various other newspapers in this state regarding the Oklahoma City Thunder. But I have to say, the hatred for that team and Clay Bennett in general is way off base.

When he purchased the team, I knew he had the full intention of moving the franchise. I blame our governor, Christine Gregoire, for not doing anything about them leaving. Also, you can throw in Greg Nickels and the entire Seattle City Council, as well as Howard Schultz. Passion and fervor for wanting the Sonics here again is one thing, but blame has to be directed at the right people.
