SEAHAWKS GROWING FRUSTRATED WITH KING COUNTY OFFICIALS
Published November 28, 1995
Since the Seahawks first approached King County officials about ways to improve the Kingdome, the Sonics have moved into a newly remodeled Seattle Center Coliseum, and the Mariners have been promised a $325M taxpayer-supported ballpark. Seahawks Owner Ken Behring: "It seems like we're bumping our heads against the walls, like the message is, really, that they (King County officials), would prefer we just went away." Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE's Bart Wright Behring is upset about misconceptions he wants a new stadium, not a renovated Kingdome, and the notion that he is more interested in leaving. Behring: "Moving is the last thing you want to do, the very last thing. Art Modell is going to be tied up in lawsuits for years." Behring added, "We've been told that the word is out that it is political suicide to be supportive of the Seahawks and I'm beginning to think that's the truth" (Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE, 11/27).
