Re "Kings owner look at buying Republic" (Page A1, Aug. 3): Enjoying the Emperor's new clothes. I am speaking of Kevin Johnson and not Vivek Ranadive.
Attention to Sacramento Republic FC, with a privately owned Bonney Field, does not amaze me. What surprises me is Sacramento turning a blind eye to an exposed Kevin. If he convinces Ranadive to move forward, it will be the death of FC; need to fill the new area by eliminating existing fan bases! Fortunately, River Cats are in West Sacramento!
