The obsession with how many titles we have

Discuss any and all sports-related topics. From the College Sports to Baseball and everything in between. RATING: PG-13
  • I just find it funny that fans from the 49ers and other fanbases obsess that we haven't won a Super Bowl yet.... and that our city supposedly sucks as a sports town. I know we only have one major modern Pro title (1979 NBA)... but I never see the same thing being said about well... pretty much any other city. What makes us so much more hated than San Diego, Phoenix, Buffalo, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Nashville, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Atlanta, New Orleans, Cincinnati...etc and many more that have accomplished in most cases the same or LESS than our city has? It's like they have some personal vendetta against Seattle winning another title.

    Good point, what has the Bay Area ever won in hockey? LOL. We should all troll the San Jose Sharks board with pictures of our 1917 "ring" :stirthepot:

    I would say the Mariners need a management enema which is IMHO what the Seahawks got post-Mora.

  • A world class city. Industry leaders. Population center is small in relation to next biggest city. Then add ,Mountains, Ocean, Volcano, Nature, Canada -Montana -Idaho-Oregon close neighbors, Seafood, Hot women....so on so forth.

    Seattle is well respected outside Washington and believe it or not fans outside of our division have a lot of good things to say about the Hawks.

    What's not to be jealous of?

  • Even tho teams like the Niners have 5 titles, they are jealous of how good this team is, period. We are in the brink of a championship and they want to hold us down. With them, they will constantly go back to the 5 rings until we catch them. The Niners accomplished their Quest for Six Sunday, that was their Super Bowl, they are not going anywhere

    Just as a tip, the "that was their Super Bowl thing" about Sunday's game is pretty feckless and meaningless. 9ers fans being obnoxious and saying that about the Hawks regular season win last year was BECAUSE the Hawks haven't won one yet. 9ers fans just roll their eyes and laugh at Hawks fans who have tried to use it in reverse this week, because the whole point of saying it was that the Hawks have never won one and their fans need to pacify themselves with meaningless regular season win.

    As for the OP, it's only really some 9ers fans who say this. Not anybody else really. As for why they say it, it's pretty simple: they say it because it's obnoxious and it gets under some Hawks fans' skin. That's it. That's the whole story from beginning to end. It's a simple one. :D

    FWIW if the 9ers get knocked out I'm definitely rooting for the Hawks to win the Bowl this year. I'd root for the fans of any team that hasn't won one yet, but the Hawks being in the same division as my team (and also just personally liking the Hawks as a team) are good reasons too.

    Yeah, that's why we throw it back at the 49ers. Half your fan base said it 762 times after the last two times we beat you.

    Hell, if only we had hit our early 30-years-into-the-franchise mark before the salary cap era.

  • Its our fan base. We are the most admired/hated fans in the league. They just wish they could be like us.

    One play? Yes.

    Entire game? Not a chance.

    It eats them up. It is simple jealousy.

    "How can a fan base with no titles inspire this much love?"

    Simple jealousy.

    The 'Hawk 12th man is definitely not overrated. They are a formidable team advantage for Seattle. I think that may have something to do with the 49er fans pointing constantly to their history. The Seattle fans are dedicated and vociferous and give you guys probably a good +2 wins a year alone on that excellent support you give to your team. The Bay Area doesn't have a 12th man that comes even within a mile of the Seattle 12th man.

    The other reason, and probably more important reason, is that Seattle is a good team this year. Nobody cares about the Rams this year. Why? They suck. Tampa Bay, same thing. Atlanta Falcons. Seattle is the class of the NFC and probably the NFL, and so the only way to counter that is past history that proves the opposing team used to be the class of the NFL the way Seattle is now. It should not be surprising, and Seattle fans should expect it, and simply move on to more relevant issues like match ups and strategy.

  • Old trophies has ZERO relevance to present performance! I won bowling trophies as a kid that doesn't mean I'm going to shoot 300 every game from that point on.

    If you're crowing about old trophies then it means you are insecure with your team's present and near future performance.

    Meh, it was always cool as a kid to get one, but the tarnish wore off quick.
    I wouldn't gloat about them 25+ years later, I've had better accomplishments on the lanes as an adult since then, but most of your better bowlers have done what I've done and more so it's not even a point of discussion and a I would never throw those accomplishments in someone's face that hasn't reached that level yet. That's a dickish move and as stated shows insecurity via a perceived threat.

  • As countless people have said, "It's not the ending, but the journey to it." Getting that final trophy makes the path you took to get there much sweeter. Come on, man; just admit it. Of course the 49ers fans are dickheads for how much they bring it up and under what circumstances, but just laughing it off as irrelevant to even think about or mention is you kind of doing the same thing on the opposite side of the spectrum.

    Beyond sad? I disagree. Maybe compared to Boston... but those cities I listed are no better. Phoenix has ALL 4 major sports teams with a grand total of 1 title... And how long have the Mariners and Seahawks been here? 35 years... LOL. Yeah our teams are ancient.

    This was cogently written. I agree, especially with your last sentence. Hawk and 9r fans can have profitable discussions about more important aspects of the game than just history, with players that are no longer playing, or even alive now.

    I get it, we all want respect and think we deserve it. But we haven't won a darn thing. Until we do, we'll continue to be a laughing stock with a nice novelty of a loud fanbase.

  • I think that when it's so obvious that someone is much better than you currently, it's human nature to cling to past glories or current irrelevancies as if to somehow make up for the obvious shortcomings.

    I mean the whiners are actually taking solace from the fact that CK7 is more "marketable" than RW3, never mind all the stats and that show Wilson as a much better QB and the talk of him being an MVP candidate. Utterly pathetic when you think about it but human nature nonetheless.

Of course the 49ers fans are dickheads for how much they bring it up and under what circumstances, but just laughing it off as irrelevant to even think about or mention is you kind of doing the same thing on the opposite side of the spectrum.

    I laugh it off as irrelevant because I deal with it on a daily basis with a troglodyte cow patties fan at work who I hear the same "5 rings" line from. Like they say in the stock market past performance is no indicator of future results. ......and maybe a little of it is the Mariner's effect, where they've tried to milk every last drop out of the 1995 and 2001 "success", and while those teams were great they failed to even make it to the World Series, and 1995 was almost 20 years ago.

    Disagree if you choose, but the old trophies argument is weak and lame. If the Sonics were still around I wouldn't be crowing about their championship in 1979 because it has nothing to do with the present. I try to live in the present and not off of old glories in the distant past.
    42-13, 29-3, and 23-17 and a Lombardi trophy from THIS millennium.....deal with it niner trolls

  • San Fran was introduced to the NFL in 1946. Did not win a championship until 1981. Took them 35 years to get their first. So you would think that they have won since the beginning. We are in year 37 so I guess our team just sucks cause they did it earlier. But also without a cap in the 80's. The argument can go both ways. But until we win our 6th they will always use the 5 rings thing.

  • If it bugs you, now you know why some say it.

    Think of the 5 rings thing as a fan filter of sorts. IF it bugs you, the fan filter just identified a thin skinned wussy who care a bit too much about perception. You are insecure in your fandom. Just be secure.

    If SOMEONE ELSE tries to make to cry with 5 rings, that A-HOLE has also been identified and can now be ignored. You do not have to take them seriously ever again, they just told you not to. You don't have to reply to their posts, you don't have to point out how stupid they are, and you don't have to mock their pathetic attempts to bolster their self worth with a pathetic grasp at the past.

    I repeat, 5 rings, 9 titles (for GB fans stuck in the past), 26 titles (for pathetic Yankee fans), whatever number Pitty has, if a fan of those teams brings it up on the net, just ignore them from then on. They cannot be taken seriously.

    I love this trivia. I remember about 6 or so years ago I won Thunderbird tickets by "stumping" a radio host on Kube 93 with this trivia. Go Seattle Metropolitans!

    People outside of the Seattle area recognize U of Washington having 1. Officially the Huskies only has 1 and not 2 like most Husky fans believe.

  • It has nothing to do with rings really, that's just a smoke screen. It's really because we brought forth JIMMY HENDRIX! Make no mistake.
