    Stern" "If benchmarks set are met, in my view the committee will vote to approve....

    the re-location of the franchise."

    I survived Katrina, but nothing I owned did.

    Stern says that there is a LOT of WORK to be done before it can be approved, but if they are met, it's pretty much done.

    Surprised that he included suites as something that still needed significant work.

    Wow! He said some of the suite commitments are still verbal. Also, there are not written confirmations of some of the ticket sales. Huh?

    Stern is getting pissy with the questions.

    His arrogance is getting old just in this press conference. I cannot wait to hear Wooldridge's response. Is he raising our benchmarks or does he mean we have to meet the benchmarks already set?

    One thing I know, New Orleans had better start selling a lot of tickets!

    This is as good as saying the team is ours. This should get the doubters off their butts and to the ticket office!

    I can hear the screams of disbelief in CLT now. Talk about burst their little bubble.

    Way to go.

    Regardless of what happens next, one thing is obvious. Charlotte has pissed off the league as we have said all along and they don't care about how they "used to support the team" either.

    I think that they are more ticked at the owners right now than at Charlotte. I'm upset with both.

    Of course, this comes from a Charlottean.

    WOW! What a great press conference. I feel like this is a done deal. I have every confidence in guys like Bill Hines to make sure that the sponsorships, club seats and suites are finalized.

    Hornet,

    How can you say that you think the owners are upset with Shinnridge? Did you see Woolridge and Colangelo embrace as they left?

    They are so upset with the owners they are basically giving them the green light to finalize the New Orleans deal before they even vote. I have said all along that the league cannot stop this move legally. They came here knowing that. The only thing they can do is hold them accountable for the information they are giving the league. Who is denial now. CLT.com must be about to blow up.

    Maybe I'm wrong. But if I were Stern, I'd be upsert with the owners. Shinn and Ray are probably the most unpopular owners in the NBA right now..

    Stern, though guaranteeing nothing, appeared impressed with the amount of progress made in New Orleans given the short time frame in which we've had to work in. Good to hear.

    Are Wooldridge and/or Shinn about to hold a press conference themselves?
