See, this is the problem with message boards: Groupies. Do you clowns actually think your little heros are just about rainbows, team spirit and little more? Just because you dressed in your SA pajamas for bed every nite before saying your prayers does not make him perfect. Only in your fantasy world is that so.
I could easily back up my claims here, but feel absolutely no desire to do so. I mean, who are YOU? I'm not about to throw someone (once very prominent in the org) under the bus to satisfy a bunch of half-wit groupies. Half of you can't even comprehend a simple sentence. IE: I never said Hutch was pissed at Ruskell (solely) because of the re-signing of SA. But I will say that was the final straw, and I know this to be fact. You can either believe it or not...I couldn't care less.
My concept of a measge board is much different than yours. It is not the center of my universe. I use the board to share information. When I see misinformation or fantasy tales, I'm likely to comment.
Perhaps one of you fanatics would like to explain the REAL reason Hutch bailed. Do you sincerely believe it was solely because Ruskell allowed him to test the market or because he wanted to be closer to home? C'mon...get a clue. This guy is going to walk away from a SB team because he was allowed to "test the market"? And he intentionally helped write a contract that would dis-allow him from re-signing with a SB team, playing next to arguably the greatest LT in history, because he was allowed to test the market? LMAO.
I said in my OP that I am happy SA was a Hawk. He did some good things, but mostly because of the line. SA was not liked in the NFL. You can believe that or not. He was soft and he was arrogant. That won't win you many friends in the NFL. When he went to Washington, the first thing he was told by Clinton Portis was "stay away from me and stay out of my way. You are not welcome here". Now, this is information readily available. Do your homework before you start calling people liars. All that glitters isn't gold...not even for the Seahawks. You did know Chris Warren was a deadbeat dad, right? That should bring out the CW groupies.
In closing: This is an anonymous msg board. You have no idea who I am, just as I have no idea who you are. I could be Pete Carroll for all you know. I have no reason to make things up and/or impress you with my relationship with the Hawks past FO. You're just not that important. The good news is now, you have been made aware of the truth. What you choose to do with this is entirely up to you. Sorry to disrupt your little fantasy, please re-join your world of unicorns, rainbows and perfect Seahawks.
