  • News and entertainment... definitely serves as a one stop clearing house of sorts for any breaking Hawks news (which saves me time and money and 9 out of 10 doctors agree)... seems to be a plethora of folks here who spend an incredible amount of time closely monitoring every football news or blogisphere website known to mankind for the smallest Seahawks tidbit and then all-out sprint to .Net to be the first to post it here... works out well for me :D

  • voted for easiest seahawks info but i also like the great breakdowns. I don't need them as much anymore because I have learned to be a level headed diehard.

    I was only pissed two times this year the loss at AZ and the loss at Miami.

  • Why search on the sports sites for SeaHawk news when someone else will do it and post it here? Plus the train wreck that is the PWR Forum.

    But yeah, it's a combination of the top 3. It's like a virtual sports bar I can screw off to while I'm at work! ...but with more drinking.

  • I went with the second option. When i go online and my homepage comes up, if there is news on the Hawks i typically won't read it there but come here instead because i know someone has posted it already so i'll read it from the OP and then read the opinions.

    The 1st option was a close second. That's what i do. Sure, most folks don't get it but thats what real world friends are for. It's easy for me to keep the internet and the real world seperate.

    That being said though. There are several dudes from here i'd like to have a beer with. Off the top of my head they'd be...

    Doc, Largent80, Aros, CanMan (CanHawk) Brian Wilson avatar dude, Kearly (if he can stay out long enough) Although i'm not sure if i'd get a word in edgewise there 8)
    And several more i'm sure.

    Well it used to be till Boobies were removed and we went PC in the smack shack.

    Or was that when Aros stopped posting picks of his Hair Band days??????

    I chose all the other since it's all the above and then some. I find it funny that the more we have aged and changed the more we stay the same. The board these days where technically more advanced is trending back towards the type of postings of the Barbranne, Yourdaddy,Seahawk2k when he was a fiesty shit, Raiderjohn, Fudd and many others. It was a more volatile time and were seeing some of that again. We were on the.COM board and on Aros's location wherever it was.

  • I am addicted to this shitbag franchise. I live for this team. I have other interests (stamp collecting, exposing myself to the blind, rubbing turtles over Velcro while yelling out brand names of mayonnaise) but nothing gets my devotion to the Seahawks.

    Each week is a family get together with food and drink. I get to relax from all of real life and just enjoy for 3 hours.

    I have followed this team since I was a kid going to Cheney, to taking my whole family to playoff games at the stadium in the south endzone. It is my "thing" and I am addicted and a fanatic.

    The most expensive articles of clothing I own are Seahawks jerseys. I am easy to buy for because if it has to do with my team, I love it!

    This place is a home for me to get together with a bunch of other crazy bastards with unhealthy love and devotion for my team.

    I want to buy you all a schooner of delicious, dark beer, pour you a shot of Irish single malt and toast to "Go Hawks"

  • I'll say the same thing I said when .net went through the divorce period back in 2007- I come here to learn things. And sometimes part of learning is teaching or hashing out thoughts. So I voted for #3. #2 was a close second, this place is the shit when Seahawks/NFL news is rolling in. When Pete/JS were hired it was flipping awesome to be here. I always look forward to March on these boards as well.

    J, you rank #3 for me. But only because I am a loner with no sense of humor.

  • Easiest place for Seahawk news, and great for good discussion and analysis. I especially like reading Kearly's, English's and Sharkhawk's posts.

    As far as the "2nd family" aspect, I delved into that back in 2000 on an "X-Men" movie forum because I was so excited about that finally coming out. I felt that went way too far and decided never to let that happen again. It was kinda nice, but I was way too addicted to that "community" we built.

    I'm fine with just lurking here, with occasional posts. I'm already addicted to this site as it is and my girlfriend hates it. Ah well.

    I opted for "Other" simply because "All the above" was not an option. All the reasons you cited are the reasons this has been my home page for 15+ years.

  • Dunno. Think I'm too much of a pussy to self harm properly.

    Second would be the serious analysis stuff.

    Third would be to get the mood of the fans - I have only met one other Seahawks fan in the flesh since a gathering in London in 1992, and I only got to shout out the Window of my car to him.

    Fourth is so I get to find out what this 'petting zoo' is when it's busted by the FBI. My working theory is that it's an amateur attempt at a human centipede using a stapler.
