Key Arena is owned by the City of Seattle. Qwest Field and Safeco are both owned (to some degree or another) by the people of Washington State through Public Facility Districts.

So, all three major sports venues in Washington (not including obvious college venues) are publicy owned, one more directly.;

Not really any facts here to back this up, but I think this makes the situation with Key more volatile. I’m all for more democracy, but that Key Arena is directly managed by elected officials, rather than a board appointed by elected officials, makes it more likely that folks will have problems with the arena’s management.

More of a public issue, if you know what I mean.

    I’m going around to all the Washington state bloggers/freelancers to let them know about our new book, the Historic Photos of Washington state by Dale Soden. We’d love to send you a complimentary copy for possible review consideration on your blog. The title is done in a large format, 10×10 and all images used are culled from several archives that represent rare or never before seen photos of the Evergreen state. We’re trying to get the word out to local folks, so I hope you don’t mind me dropping you a line to let you know about our book!

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Best,
