Baltimore took the Browns from Cleveland just like St. Louis took the Rams from Los Angeles. Sure the owners chose to make the moves and sure you can quibble about the details but either way those people got screwed and then knowing full well what that felt like they screwed someone else in exactly the same way.
Yep, that basically sums up my take on all of that. It's kinda like having your wife leave you for another man, then you turn around yourself and become a homewrecker just to replace her.
Now it's Seattle's turn in the NBA. If you relate franchises to women that franchise has been been "around the block" a few times. That team started out in Rochester, moved to Cincinnati, then moved to Kansas City, then moved to Sacramento, now is moving to Seattle. I might feel a little bit dirty if I were a Sonics fan.
