a person holding a phone: File Photo © File Photo File Photo Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver wants the citizens of Phoenix to pay 150 million to help renovate Talking Stick Resort Arena, and reportedly threatened to move the team to Seattle or Las Vegas if the city doesn't approve the proposed project.

Exasperated Suns fans sounded off on social media over the potential deal, and one 90-year-old fan ripped the unpopular owner at a recent city council meeting.

Greta Rogers became a phenomenon on Twitter after video of her speech to council members went viral.

"[Sarver's] so tight he squeaks when he walks. And you have been negotiating with this kind of person? Shame on each and all of you. And upon you, Ed, I thought your principles were higher and better than this. We are not in the business of paying taxes to support private enterprise."

The Phoenix New Times interviewed Rogers about her newfound fame, but she's more concerned with grilling the leadership in Phoenix.

Via the Phoenix New Times:

"The Suns have been a failure as long as he's owned them, because he won't invest in two or three top-grade players because that costs money, real money. As long as he runs this teams the way he's run it, it will be a failure.

… We don't have $150 million or any figure above that flopping around in a miscellaneous account wanting or wishing to be used before it goes obsolete and goes into a big slush fund for anything. We have infrastructural problems in this city, primarily streets. We did a major sewer replacement on Southern Avenue a couple years ago, from the Tempe line and then north. We have water line issues coming up."
