A LITTLE TOO QUIET: In Sacramento, Ailene Voisin writes, "This is only the latest chapter in the simmering Kings arena/relocation drama that will persist into the upcoming season, perhaps into subsequent seasons, and is sure to involve at least another half-dozen or more cities." Kings co-Owners Joe and Gavin Maloof "need to show something." Voisin: "Scream. Shout. Sob. Throw a temper tantrum. Tell their critics to jump off a building. Do something, anything, to demonstrate that they haven't fled the market." The Maloofs' "silence on this Virginia Beach situation is killing them." Voisin: "An emphatic denial would have temporarily tabled the relocation issue, and in effect directed attention toward the upcoming season" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 8/28).
