    If we go with that then we'd need to keep the date and time private.

    Yeah that's not how it works. :D

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    It was cool to meet others from this forum and talk about the relocation/arena saga after watching Down in the Valley.

    I totally understand their concern too. Hopefully someone can host and provide some snacks while I bring the movies.

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    We’re all Kings fans though. It would be best in a private setting. I’ve done a few of these already and there hasn’t been any issues including for several from this forum.

    If you can host it in your backyard that works.

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    I have a buddy who set up a huge screen outside in his backyard to watch the fights. Is that set up what you meant?

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    You're welcome. We just did our small part to back up the big parts. Those were good times. Since we're on the subject and someone else mentioned a viewing party, if anyone is local and can host a viewing party I'll bring my copy of Playing to Win and Down in the Valley. I just require food to...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    I can't imagine what could have had happened on social media when we had the number one overall pick when the Kings selected Pervis Ellison.

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    It's an echo chamber over there and definitely a mob mentality. Actually I did agree with you that it's not just the injuries but the talent too as I said some pieces simply did not fit which was why they were traded. But I would rather have Fox on my team rather than CoJo. If I had to pick...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    The team was in a better position two years after the Cousins trade and that led to his extension with the team. I am a firm believer in drafting the best player available and not the best fit. I don't work for the Kings so what do I know? :-)

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    I can't speak for a professional athlete but as a sports fan it is very frustrating. I am still a season ticket member despite what is going on and in fact will be flying to Los Angeles for my annual trip to watch the Kings at Clippers. I may not always agree with what the team does or how it...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    Ah yes the viewing party. I remember that. I have no problem with your opinion and from others and if we agree or agree to disagree. It is good and healthy to have a respectful dialogue. As I said earlier if it makes them feel any better then more power to them. I remember a time when the...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    I forgot to add this about the folks either behind or supporting the billboard idea. They recently tweeted "...It seems Holmes' injury was known before, but disclosed only after the season ticket renewal date. That feels very wrong." Really? Really? I just can't take them seriously.

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    It's been a while. I tend to stay away from social media for the most part. Someone shared with me the billboard idea and I began to ask friends about their opinions. Everyone has told me the same that I felt. It's just a dumb idea that will not achieve their goal and make the fan base look...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    The first time was to build around Cousins and that did not work. Trading Cousins was ripping off the band-aid for a full rebuild and up until last season things were starting to look good except for the tailspin toward the end of the season. Injuries this season, especially to Fox, has hurt...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    They're more than welcome to do what they wish but reading their comments it showed this was poorly planned and with very little leadership. The organizer(s) need to put more skin into their plan but that's just me. The website and video were very poorly done too. I also have noticed there is...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    If they really wanted this to happen then the organizer(s) should put more of their own money into it instead of hoping for others to spend their hard earned money even if it is $10 per person. The billboard won't effect the front office anymore than today's Athletic article along with any past...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    I am also frustrated with how poorly the team has been, injuries or not, but I just feel the billboard idea is dumb and pointless. The billboard just makes the fan base look entitled and as I said won't move the needle at all. There are much better ways to get the point across but it will take...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    The billboard is a dumb idea. It is by a vocal minority (I'll say a handful) of those who post comments and their billboard is calling for Vivek to step down and to fire Vlade too. Their billboard idea won't move the needle. It is just a waste of time, energy and money. No one with any kind of...
