    From what that says I would think so. I do think we can renegotiate all contracts of players that are currently under contract with us though for a short window of time prior since it's still considered the 2012 season till then.

  • I consider visiting .Net all throughout the long offseason to be the methadone to my Wilson addiction. Time to sober up, reach out to the family and friends again (hopefully they will have me even though I'll be a stung out junkie again come August).

  • It only gets boring for about six weeks from the end of the May mini-camps to the start of training camp at the end of July. Otherwise there is always something going on. Something to debate.

    I'd argue the most important day for Hawk fans is missing, but it's the superbowl on Feb. 2, 2014.

    Right around the Draft. Give or take a week. It's never on the "official" schedule when it's going to be released, but as it gets closer, they generally will release the exact date, including an NFL Schedule release show on either the NFL Network, and/or ESPN

    It was fun, when they finally announced the Bruce Irvin pick, the place went nuts!

    Alright food(improvements could be made), lots of beer, tour the Clink locker room, and see the field from the tunnel. Cool event.

    Plus it was the release of the new jersey, so it had the feel of a major event. This year, especially now with no first round pick, I'm not so sure it's gonna happen. I'm still coming up dammit, just might have to make mine own party.

  • I just saw on PFT that the schedule will be release on Thursday night at 8PM Est (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... day-night/).

    Does that mean that the single game tickets will be on sell at the same date? I need to know the answer (if you have it) asap because I'm planning on attending the game vs 49ers and I live up here in Quebec, Canada.

    Thanks for the info

    I can't answer specific to this year, but IIRC, in the past, single game tickets don't usually go on sale until around August. Usually someone here announces it shortly before they go on sale, as there's always multiple people waiting on that date.

    There will be people ticket resellers out there who will have single game tickets for sale shortly after the announcement. I forget who the official re-seller is, but I know Stub Hub has been popular in the past. If you want to plan further ahead, something like that is probably your best option

  • Yeah. Well I want to get ASAP because I don't live very close from Seattle. I'm next to the Atlantic Ocean and Seattle next to the Pacific Ocean. So I have to take something like 3 days vacation. So I need to buy ASAP to make sure that everything is going to go well. I can't rent a hotel room before having the tickets :P
