Sacramento Wants a FedExForum, Too... 

Clearly taking a blind eye to the current state of affairs (ahem, Garage Gate), the Sacramento Bee drools and fawns over our FedExForum in this article. Our new arena is a state-of-the-art object-of-desire for many NBA cities and especially for Sacramento, a city in the midst of downtown redevelopment (check), a logistical hub (check), and who has NBA team with a less-than-desirable playoff runs the last couple of seasons (definitely check). For Sacramento city officials, some unsolicited advice from your Flyer friends: If the Governator gives you money to build a public transportation hub on the new arena site, don’t screw it up.
