    I hate to see this happen to any team. I'd offer a bid but I don't think I can afford them. I still think they should've played at the United Center no matter what.

    someone should see if the team is on ebay.
    but seriously, this is a bad situation and i feel sorry for all the fans who might have to see their team go.

    I knew what you meant. I think someone should give Bill Gates a call about this. He's been a computer nerd for to long. Maybe he can be the next Mark Cuban.

    Mark Cuban was actually the next Paul Allen who was the #2 person at Microsoft with Bill Gates when it was founded. Allen got out of MSFT a long time ago and buys the world's biggest yachts and pro sport teams. He bought the Portland Blazers a long time, way before Cuban ripped off Yahoo and bought the Mavericks.

    Another MSFT millioniare bought the PBA to keep it alive because he liked bowling. Between Seattle and the Bay Area there's more than enough people with cash on hand to buy any team, they just aren't all lacrosse fans.

    IMHO Gates would be a rather horrible owner. When someone mentioned the magazine GQ to him a couple months ago he asked "What is that?". He's so uber-geek he may not be able to name all the pro sport teams in Seattle.

    I still think he should do it. Needs somethin to do to pass the time. Plus I'd like to see an owner in the NLL like MArk Cuban. Just not as much of a dumbass.

    Going WAY OT here, but Gates is spending all his money on things like curing diseases in Africa through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Not to mention the other think tank program he started after leaving MSFT that I can't remember the name of right now. So I don't think he's coming up short on ways to pass the time or spend his money.

    Big geek who knows what Bill Gates is up to signing off.

    Correction: Melinda Gates is spending all of Bill's money on things like curing diseased in Africa. He's only become a philanthropist because of her prodding.

    She could very well be the most expensive lay in history.

    I cant believe this has become Microsoft soap opera. Back to the point now.

    Definition of irony?

    Is there something tragically ironic about Roy complaining that a thread has gone off topic?
