Interesting that you say that. I like to browse other fanbase's forums. I would expect to find the most Hawk hate on a Niner forum, but the Redskin fans HATE the Seahawks.
That's cuz we've
them in the playoffs the last 3 or 4 times we've played them.
FYI to you guys, Redskins fans not liking Seattle has nothing to do with the team. It was just a Hawks few fans from years ago.
Sean Taylor, the fans #1 fan favorite Redskin at the time, was murdered on November 27th, 2007. Not even six weeks after he died, the Skins traveled to Seattle for a playoff game. Many Redskins fans were in attendence, some of them wearing Sean Taylor jerseys, and multiple Redskins fans reported being heckled by Seahawks fans, saying things like "Sean Taylor smoked cracked" and "you know he's dead, right?" We've all heard of sleezeball fans taking cheap shots, but I'm sure many of you here will agree that that's one of the most disgusting and classless things I've ever heard somebody say to an opposing fan. Richard Sherman is extremely loved by Sehawk nation, right? Imagine if he died, and opposing fans made fun of him at a game less than two months after his death? Like seriously, take about 5 seconds and actually think about if that happened. That's how Redskins fans felt...
With that said, yes
, most adult, mature Redskins fans realize that a few drunk jerks in the crowd don't represent an entire fanbase. But many Skins fans were pissed because of that, including myself. I don't "hate" Seattle, but I've never really cared for the Seahawks since that happened.
I actually lived in Seattle for two years and I was in attendence during Lynch's "beastmode" run. Lynch is one of my favorite players in the league, I only wish he played for a differene team
. and that 2013 defense, which some argue was the #1 defense in NFL history, I was jealous LOL. A defense like that can make any QB look good. I kid I kid.
