DescriptionAccording to the poll I posted less than an hour before the details of this $75 million buyout came through, the big, bad guys are former Sonics owner Howard Schultz and, most consequentially, Mayor Greg Nickels.

No politician should ever expect love from his public. But in the next several days, Nickels is likely to get nothing but vitriol -- the kind that's been pouring in all day on our SoundOffs.

"Nickels GET OUT OF MY TOWN," wrote kakashi.

"Nickels is an idiot. Is this a shock?" wrote gettingreal.

"I'll be licking stamps and making phone calls for ANYBODY - animal, vegetable, or sheep - who runs against mayor Fathead," wrote vinella.

Nickels is the mayor who lost us the Sonics. Not sure that smear will ever go away.
