Virginia Beach Mayor Sets Monday Deadline For Lease Agreement With Pro Sports Team

DOWN IN SAC-TOWN: In Sacramento, Tom Couzens writes the Kings "have struggled attracting fans to Sleep Train Arena nearly as much as they have on the basketball court this season." The Kings through 17 home games "remain mired near the bottom in the league in home attendance," as their average of 13,274 tops only the Pistons' 13,258. While a "backlash against the Kings' owners and the uncertainly over the team's future have contributed to the fans' indifference, the low attendance isn't all the Kings' fault." Each of the Kings' Sunday home games in December "were on the same day as big 49ers games." When sports fans are "forced to choose between attending a Kings game this early in the season or watching the 49ers or the national college football championship on TV, it's really a no-brainer" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 1/4).
