Hello readers this is just mostly me Guessing K so dont take anything to heart
Katz in seattle if the Oilers played basketball and he really moved them.
I think that there was never any intention to move the Oilers to Seattle. It was just to try and scare the city into caving in the arena talks. But I think that he was hearing and getting death threats (Just what i think on the threats no confirmed source) or stuff like that so he had to try and make sure that this didn't get any worse. So he said that he won't move the team get every Oilers fan to not hate him as much as the others. But it will take Oiler fans time to recover from this, as we all remember when Peter Pocklington saga was going and saying he was going to move them to Houston.
