Russell is a class act on and off the field. Need we say more!

ok, i can see the confusion... I was more referring to affluent as worldly, wealth of knowledge... but eloquent is also apropos...

nevermind... carry on

Typical niner fan, still unaware of the meaning of a word. Here I did the work for you:


af·flu·ent
[af-loo-uhnt or, often, uh-floo-] Show IPA
adjective
1.
having an abundance of wealth, property, or other material goods; prosperous; rich: an affluent person.
2.
abounding in anything; abundant.
3.
flowing freely: an affluent fountain.
noun
4.
a tributary stream.
5.
an affluent person: a luxurious resort appealing to young affluents.


Worldly? Not exactly.

I don't understand, it makes perfect sense to use the word affluent in that context.
Maybe not my word of choice but it's certainly not incorrect

[Edit] See Post Above

"flowing freely"

If there's one thing that can be said about Russell Wilson's media presentation, it's that it flows about as freely as anyone I've ever seen

Not in the context that the original writer meant. We could say that someone who won't shut the heck up is affluent in his or her speech, but it's almost certain that the original writer was trying to talk about how articulate Russell Wilson is rather than how much he talks.

Juxtapose this with the video of Kaepernick showing off his shoe collection.

Does every thread about RW have to have a comment like this?

RW is the man...he's a perfect fit for and representation of Seattle: humble, overlooked, hardworking.


I wanna know where the video of the shoes is.

It was in his ESPN "Bodies" shoot. If you just want to see the shoes...go to the 2:00 mark for about a minute. He has HUNDREDS of shoes!
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/page/bod ... n-magazine
This also shows me how opposite Kaep and Russ are! Russ would have NO time for that!

affluent, I don't think you know what that word means. But what can you expect from a whiner fan.

Articulate probably would have been a better word, but affluent's not bad. No need to ball bust.

To be fair, by the time Russell Wilson runs for President he'll be Tiger Woods rich. Maybe ninerfan was just seeing the future?

When I see videos like this, it makes me believe there's nothing Wilson can't do. Underneath all the coach speak, you really sense the spark that drives him and puts him a different level.

I don't think so. He wasn't wearing a red polo shirt and black pants.

Man the way he was talking there it reminded me of Pete with his quick speech and some of the mannerisms.

God, I hope politics never enters his mind. Politically, any friend of Mitt's is not a friend of mine.
I'd like to see him give coaching a try after playing.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the sidelines at a nice college on Saturdays. He loves kids, teaching/learning, and football....it makes perfect sense.

Eloquent is one thing, and he surely is that. It's another thing to be perceptive. Yeah a lot of his interviews he says the same things over and over again, but the last couple of interviews he did he talks about specific things he wants to check off the list, for instance 3rd down performance for the offense. In this interview, the game-altering plays. He's right, since he seemed to nail down a weakness every week last year, keeping eyes downfield while scrambling, check. Performing better on the road, check. Hell, 3rd downs and more big plays are pretty much all that's left. That and maybe really finding the open guy a bit more.

The guy is dead on at the end of the video, if Wilson was reading the tag on your mattress he would make it interesting and you'd want to listen to every word he said.
