Paul Allen has died

  • We all know what he meant to us and our fandom.
    Huge loss for the Seahawks and fans but that pales in comparison to what he contributed to mankind.

    The Earth is a lesser planet today.

    Holly crap this is bad news!!
    RIP Paul. Forever my hero.

    Edit:
    I would like to ask we keep this thread to paying our respects and sharing our good memories. Any concerns and thoughts about where the team ownership may lead to another separate thread.

    This is not the place for debate.....please.


    A HUGE loss of someone who has given so much to every single one of us, whether we know it or not. A true giant among men. R. I . P . Mr. Allen and thank you for your generosity and good heartedness for us all. No appreciation can ever match to what you have given.

  • Stunning, even considering his recent diagnosis. Awful, awful news for his family.

    It says a lot about a person when after their passing, one needs to digress through a few levels of appropriate conversation in order to speak of them as, you know, the outright savior of a franchise and fanbase of hundreds of thousands.

    He is as responsible as anyone for why we logged on to .Net today and congregate here, and all of us know it.

    Missing him already. What a life.

    Thank you Paul for all you did and God Bless to your family. May you rest in peace!

  • I remember being so happy that he bought the team that I cried. I was a wreck over this stuff and he saved the Seahawks, then made them a champion. The first game in 1997, it was against the Jets and he ran across the field with his fist pumping, cried then too over happiness.

    The cool thing about Allen was the leverage he gave to the staff, Carroll and Holmgren both were allowed to do what they needed and were provided the same.
    The only concern I have and I mean only is that Bevell will get cute and pass even though Lynch is gaining yardage. 1/30/2015 - loaf

  • I am shocked. I don't know anything about him personally, but he got Seattle to 3 Super Bowls, winning 1 glorious time. As someone currently in remission from cancer, this hits hard. I thought he was going to kick this thing again, and quickly. My prayers go out to the family. He was a giant of a man in the business world, and you within the family can only know the true depths of pain that come today. The greatest things you can say about a man is "he will be missed, and he left a huge mark."

  • He saved football in Seattle.

    And he changed the world in plenty of other ways.

    I don't know what else to say but we were tremendously lucky for what we had in the owner we had.

    What we do moving forward is a discussion for another time. This is about appreciating what we got, and we got more than most sports fans could ever hope to get from their owners.

  • Brutal news, rest easy Paul. Condolences to his family.
    When he released the statement that his cancer had returned I was really hoping it would not transpire like the Charles Krauthammer situation. The history of the Seahawks is littered with plenty of disappointment, that all changed when Paul Allen took the reigns and ushered us to greatness. He was one of the very best owners in the league and we were very lucky to have him.

  • Paul Allen wasn't even a football fan when he stepped in to save the Hawks, but he became one later. Without him they'd be the LA Seahawks, with no SBs. He did it for Seattle Seahawks fans. He also did the same for the Cinerama, which would be condo towers right now without him. Also stepped in to help KCMU. Thank you, Paul! Be well! You rock!

    You will be missed.

  • I don't think that there's another man on the face of this planet that has garnered as much Love & Respect as Paul Allen has. He's touched so many lives in a positive way, and I hope that those he has entrusted everything to follow his wishes to the letter.

    People (myself included) honestly cared about the man. Even though I've never met him, it hurt reading the headlines. He has touched my life in a profoundly positive way.

    God Bless and God Speed Paul Allen.

  • What terrible news. The man was a rock for our Hawks, and all those who have benefited by his generosity over the years.

    This will be a day to remember for us Hawk fans and at least he was able to see his team get a SB win in his lifetime. Just a really sad ending for a truly great man.

    RIP and God Bless to PA and his family.

    without Paul..There is no Seahawks.NET without him saving the team.I have heard of other
    things that were saved due to him and that goes to show the character of the man.
    He helped keep things around that he knew others had great interest in even though he
    may not have shared it.He will always be a legend in Seattle..RIP Mr.Allen

  • I was in the army in 96 when Behring moves the team to Anaheim. I’d spent my entire enlistment talking smack about the Seahawks so the move was brutal for me. For a couple days it was all I heard. I had a memorial in the barracks and decided I would go through a mourning period and pick a team that had a long suffering fan base so I could avoid the bandwagon tag.

    And then came Paul Allen.

    Thank God for Paul Allen.

    Best wishes to his family and close friends. The man who saved the Seahawks. Who will they get to raise the flag in the NFCCG?
