No need to boost the sound. I live in Tacoma. 4 years ago there were a grand total of 3 Seattle Seahawks fans. Now that they are a downtrodden bunch of sore losers, everyone's on the bandwagon. it's sickening.

/oh yeah, soccer is ghey

I know I came around to loving them when Hasselbeck said 'We're gonna take the ball and we're gonna win!' or whatever to that effect. Even though he lost, that was awesome to say in front of the whole crowd at Lambeau and a national TV audience.

plus now i know one of shaun alexander's friends from alabama.

the people you can meet in the marine corps...

From the "Infamous Last Words" Dept.:

"We want the ball and we're gonna score!"

Insert Al Harris pick-off returned for a game-ending TD here.

That one still smarts.

Article is useless without pictures. Oh, wait, here's one:

I guess they couldn't hear the crowd noise anyway based on the location of their ears.

this 12th man thing is pathetic losers who have to rely on others to perform.

Nice headline, submitter.

*golf clap*

HAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHH!! Good one, subby..

KiwDaWabbit: I agree w/ you and Mr. Tooth. You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

/Cue the biatching about the Steelers, Super Bowl, Officiating, etc etc..

No one cares about the Steelers; it's ok, Seattle will be back in the SB this year and Pittsburgh won't, so the past mistakes will be rectified. It's cool.

although so far all I see is biatchy Pittsburgh fans that are biatching about other people being unhappy that they got screwed.

well, it does seem improbable that this many whining crybabies are all the fans of the same team.

on the other hand, there do seem to be a lot of crybaby seahawks fans.

/it's a push, i guess. whiny team, whiny fans.
 
2006-09-21 01:30:28 PM  
That's funny, I'm looking into rumors that seahags fans are the whiniest bunch of biatches on the planet.

Rumors?

Great headline.

Let it die, already, Seahawk faithful

I think Oklahoma Sooners fans now have the mantle of "whiniest."

As a Hawks fan, I can proudly say that I will go to my grave biatching about SB XL ("Teh Sub" is coming home!") HOWEVER, I don't recall ANY Seattle fan - or front office brass - calling for a "do-over" or to have the game "not count" or send death threats to the officials.
 
2006-09-21 02:13:50 PM  
Wow... lots of whiney Stealers fans in here

its ok guys! it was a legit win! let it go!

caalro33,

i don't think that word means what you think it means.

Any one that ever sat in the Kingdom to watch the Seahawks or Mariners(when they didn't suck) play should know that ear bleeding fan noise can be had without the need to amplify it.

They built Qwest stadium with the thought of increasing crowd noise through architectural enhancements.
 
2006-09-21 04:50:06 PM  
Man, I was gonna make a comment about how it seems everyone thinks the Seahawks are whiners, and now the other teams are biatching about the noise.
Turns out there's Seahawks fans in here biatching about whatever. Shut the fark up, it's a new season! Let's go kill the Giants!

spanky_pete: Any one that ever sat in the Kingdom to watch the Seahawks

you probably meant the Kingdome.

I was a fan of the Hawks from 1984 to 2000. I lived through Brian Bosworth, my hero Kenny Easley disappearing from the face of the earth, my other hero Largent coming out of the closet as both a republican and (worse) a Colorado-ian (Denver???? DENVER?????). I loved a team that was unlovable. A team that had never won anything apart from one division championship the first year I met them. I saw them in the Kingdome when the Kingdome was a big friggin deal. When people did the wave. The wave. We invented the wave up here. I remember when it was cool to say "were you at the game with two waves going opposite directions?" When news of the Seahawks was on almost live.

These Hawk-come-lately fans can go back to watching the Tacoma Tigers or something, losing one Superbowl game is nothing, compared to say losing 4 (poor Bufallo), or sitting through 16 years of utter mediocrity.

Suck it.

Now as for my fandom... bring back the Kingdome. Bring back Ground Chuck. Bring back the old uniforms (what color is that? off grey?) Bring back my working class heroes and I will consider watching the Hawks. Until then I have a new love: Arsenal. So suck it, Seahawks. Suck it Seattle, and suck it Paul Allen. And by "it" I mean "my wang," like we used to say "Suck my wang!"

and get off my lawn.

We piss and moan about the Super Bowl because
fan a says: 'We finally had our chance and saw the refs play way to big a part of the game.
-that sucks in every game. whatever i've seen them choke too many times on their own and too many teams could have overcome the officiating. but a proud steelers is almost as pathetic as fan b.'
fan b: started watching the team last year; mid season of course as they lost a couple games early. if these idiots knew who tom 'man-tits' flores was, they would know pain.

however the noise is all us. the true fans who got the team fined for being to loud in the Kingdome back in the day. Third down in any other stadium in the league still aint as loud as us on forth down. come third and short and you might as well be on the runway at seatac.

\see you in miami
 
2006-09-21 05:01:34 PM  
that was supposed to be 'first' down not 'forth'... woops

I may have a new hero. Surely you had me with your correction of my spelling AND mentioning Almost live.
At least until you bashed the current team. True fans stick with the team through thick, thin, and band wagon supporters.
 
2006-09-21 06:13:08 PM  
That sound you hear is real folks. What a compliment to Seahawks fans.

Please. They're all bandwagoneers. They wouldn't know a draw play from a draw bridge.

They complained about the Colts last year. Fact of the matter is that Seattle has traditionally had (with the exception of the Stan Gelbaugh era ... shudder) one of the noisiest fanbases in the league.
 
2006-09-21 10:33:24 PM  
Seattle will never win a Superbowl because they are not used to playing good teams. Their easy schedule is their undoing.

Its great seeing a team that sports an inflated record by beating up bottom feeders get their asses handed to them by superior teams...you know, like Seattle got their asses handed to them by the Steelers last year?
