"We are heading back to Sacramento. It was a tough decision. Ticket holders were reaching out to us, and it was the right thing to do to give it a shot at one more season," Maloof said during a lengthy interview in his office in the Palms casino in Las Vegas. "We are prepared to work with the mayor," Maloof said. "We'll give him every opportunity to show us what he has in mind." "We're not going in with a defeatist attitude," he added. "We'll look to the mayor to turn his words into reality. We have to put him on the spot. He has represented he can get it done. It needs to get done." And maybe the biggest: "We need to see how it is going to be financed and quite frankly, we are not going into this with a big checkbook," Maloof said. "Is it even right to ask people to pay for it?"
