    He was pumped up still after that play and I could tell he and Crabtree were jawin' at each other all game. He didn't show restraint for sure, but he backs up what he says.
    He's a passionate player, and I always like that. I don't like the stuff Tate has pulled this season though at times.

    That we enjoy the participation over the game. Yes we love the experience and if you ever could come here and objectively watch a Seahawks game in CenturyLink field, I think you'd get it. The place is electric. Only a handful of fans will sit down. Candlestick when the Hawks played there last, had scores of fans sitting down......on 3rd down even.

    It's a experience to be part of here, but we want good ball play and a W more than throwing Skittles to Lynch after a score.

    Sherman is a punk, not just because of yesterday. I was at the SF/Seattle game in SF. The crowd was pretty loud but it's not new to us (winning), so the crowd is more in control.

    Bill, sometimes fans get over into the original meaning of fan and become fanatics. When folks have losers for so long they can lose sight of right, wrong, and sportsmanship once the scoreboard lights up for them and they rationalize away the bad. The Seahawks are the most despised NFL team in the league based on studies of negative Internet traffic and that has likely only intensified after yesterday.

    Why would the public not like the Seahawks?

    I never heard a negative word about the Seahawks until Pete Carroll, a man who has left a wake of destruction everywhere he has been, was named head coach. What more can be said of this man that has not already been said? The NFL shoud not allow failed NCAA coaches to escape their punishments while leaving the young men and institutions in their charge to suffer the consequences. This was not a small infraction, the Heisman trophy was forfeited by his player, so Carroll's actions tainted all of college football and a prestigious honor. People in the know understand how this man operates and the feeling is spread from there.

    Performance Enhancing Drugs, the Pete Carroll led Seahawks lead the league in his time with at least 5 suspensions accounting for a full 10% of violations. That one team would have so many PED violations in such a short time clearly means the coaching staff is not in control and leading their team or, God forbid, promoting PED use. I cannot in my wildest imagination see Tony Dungy, or Chuck Pagano excusing such conduct. (Not to imply they would shun and not try to rehab and help the fallen). There is a PED problem under Pete Carroll in the Seahawks locker room.

    Just for the record, the Broncos are not squeaky clean here either, but the most if not all violations occurred under a different head coach. From ESPN:

    "Two other teams, the Broncos and Giants, have had four suspensions each, while the Patriots, Redskins, Bengals, Texans and Rams are tied for fourth with three each.

    With 50 total suspensions during that time frame, 22 teams have had at least one.

    Only the Bills, Lions, Jaguars, Colts, Chiefs, Jets, Raiders, Cowboys, Eagles and 49ers have stayed off the board."

    This Pete Carroll led team leads the league in penalties and no mention of changing that ever comes from the top. Most coaches around the league strive to reduce turnovers and penalties, but not Carroll, he challenges his players to commit penalties EVERY play because officials will not call them all. I hope this issue is the major media 2 week story going in to Super Bowl because the only way Seattle can beat Denver is to mug them on every play.

    Pete Carroll's overblown bravado is unprofessional he runs the sidelines like a kid and spends more time on the field than some players. As a football fan it gets annoying to see his antics every play. He was caught on camera making a choke sign to a kicker after a missed kick, he celebrated a blown call by replacement refs like a Jr. High cheerleader. Can you imagine what other NFL head coach would do that?

    Those antics also inspire his players to behave badly on the field as well, Seahawks players are well known for taunting, preening for the cameras, and dirty play. And then there is Richard Sherman, the man has a communications degree, this is not just some poor kid trying to make it, he does this on purpose. His selfish goal is to rise up above the team to national prominence, and if that takes PED's, so be it. Most coaches would nip this in the bud, but not Carroll, he supports it.

    The 12th man/loudest, baddest crowd is way over hyped, some fans are so into themselves they have jerseys that don't honor, respect, and celebrate a great or loved player, but to aggrandize themselves. They post on all over the Internet with the snarky attitude of the coach and team and seem to feel they are somehow personally involved, not just watching a game. I'm in no way disparaging community support for your team but the way Seahawks fans present themselves to the public makes many in the rest of the country not like what they see. (This point is not made in relation to posts on CSR, I read for enjoyment and read articles and the comments from hundreds of sources, so this is not directed to anyone person or post.)

    I really like the Seattle fans at CSR and hope I do not offend you with this post but rather hope you take a look at some of what the team you support has done and have a better understanding of how others feel around the country. I despise teams that don't win it the right way so therefore I will be cheering for the Broncos to win and don't even care if it is a "good" game.

    It also changes nothing in my mind if you post links showing Carroll, Sherman, and the rest of the gang at children's hospitals, in a soup kitchen, or donating money to the needy. Every team does that, Peyton Manning even founded his own children's hospital. Manning will be remembered in Indy and Denver long after his football accomplishments are old and faded because he did it the right way.

    Well I don't want to surmise anything, but I wonder if either of you have played sports at a competitive level? If so, you recall what your emotions or actions may have been when in the heat of the battle or during the intensity of competition? I do. I played 3 years in High school with lots of playing time and some high pressure situations. I was injured in my senior year that dissolved any sports related scholarship offers, but my point is, even after playing in leagues after high school, my competitive emotion would override my general laid back sense of mind. I would be hyped up, talkative and even animated when I played. I always tried to be positive, but some times over enthusiastic and occasionally brash and arrogant. I know that. I was a different personality in the heat of the game. That's why if you listen to his interviews out of the light of 30 seconds after a huge play, his interviews are more playful, positive and fun, even boarding on arrogant or boastful. I can see other fans outside of Seattle despising it but I get it.

    Mike,
    I made my reply on the SB thread. Thanks for the comments. As I posted on the SB site, my GB team is not immune the some bad play and habits either.
    Thanks for reposting over there.

    I played sports at a very competitive level, wanted to kick my opponent's a$$ during a match but always shook their hand after. Have some class Sherman!

    Ken if that is supposed to be a Seahawk as your Avatar that is really weak. It certainly is not a Seattle Seahawks logo.

    And Sherman tried too, Crabtree pushed him in the facemask and then he talked to Erin.

    I'll say this and it will be my last comment. We can all banter back and forth, but I'd rather talk boats with you guys that argue about football.

    I agree with boating discussions but can't believe how many excuses for that idiot.

    Scott has thrown down the gauntlet over on the SB thread. I'm riding the bet with him he has proposed. Make your way over there and put some skin in the game.:grin:

    Scott, Why not start a new 2014-2015 season comments thread.
    It's not boating but boaters watch football while the boaters are on the hard.
