I commented on this in another thread, but decided to make this its own topic as I'm afraid the idea will just get buried. In the 1976 Chapter One thread, someone threw the name of Mike Curtis out there as someone to raise the 12th Man Flag. Though I agree with that one ... I've got another name and one that I believe should have been done long ago -- Pete Gross -- the original voice of the Seahawks.
Pete (of course) died of cancer back in 1992, so I was wondering, "What about his widow or maybe even one of his daughters (he had 3) to raise the 12th Man Flag?"
In looking over the list of past 12th Man Flag Raisers, there have been several who have early Seahawks who have been given that honor. However, Pete Gross (obviously a representative from Gross in this case) has yet to do it. Heck, Dave Niehuis (the legendary voice of the Mariners) was given that honor (and rightfully so) ... Warren Moon and Steve Raible (the Seahawks current broadcasters) have been given that honor as well ... so why not do so for the original voice of the Seahawks as well?
I honestly feel that this is a pretty big oversight and wonder -- is there a way to contact someone over at the Seahawks and somehow make that actually happen?
