My god, get over yourself. Seriously. It's a freaking ad for Tanzania. Does it have to be plastered on a prominent wall inside our stadium that looks rediculous and out of place? The cause of Tanzania? LOL What about every other third world country? Give me a break.


Well, on behalf of YOUR God, I am sure he appreciates you telling me to get over MYSELF for defending a man who has put hundreds of millions of his own money into supporting those who need the help.

Tell you what... I'll "get over myself" the day you put up 9 digits of your own cash, and you do something for those OTHER third world countries that Paul isn't supporting. I don't suppose you're supporting them or doing anything to help. Paul is doing what we call "leading by example". He has agreed to give away everything but like 1% of his total wealth. Tanzania is a country that he cares deeply about and has given of himself and his time and money to support a cause. How dare I respect and stand up for the man, right? He can only get kudos if he does it for EVERY country.

OR........ maybe he's doing exactly what great men do and leading the way. Maybe Jerry Jones realizes he has a huge stadium full of space and he puts some of his proceeds toward Ghana? And maybe every other overwhelmingly rich sports owner steps up and does something good, and Paul is the one who led the way, rather than throwing up another Miller Lite ad.

The fact that you can possibly be offended by what Paul and his organization has done speaks volumes about you sir. The fact that you say I need to get over MY self for praising a man who has done a wonderful thing and tried to help out in his own way really shows me a lot about general attitudes. The selfishness expressed here is pretty damned amazing.

Yeah, I will applaud our team owner when he does something great, and I'll applaud every other team owner when they go above and beyond as he has done. He's a trendsetter and we're lucky to have him and should be proud. Not mouthing off and saying that he's apparently not doing enough by only picking one country. Put up or shut up. You haven't created an advertising campaign to try to help build an economy of scale in a third world country. Paul has. And I fully support him, and I'd like to think that our fans are classy enough to understand what he's doing here. You don't get it? I feel bad for you... but I don't feel bad about responding, because frankly your post just makes you look like a heartless jerk and that's something you'll have to live with. I won't feel bad for a second whether I go overboard in supporting Paul's mission and vision or not. I've lived through every other owner and what he's done for all of us is beautiful. Taking that cash and paying it forward to the homeland of my wife and children's ancestors makes me feel better and better each day about being a fan of OUR Seattle Seahawks. Way to go Paul! Don't listen to the haters. Keep the momentum rolling.


Boom. Roasted. Game, set, match. :white_flag:

1962 Julius Kambarage Nyerere is first president of the newly formed Republic of Tanganyika (9 December), having previously served as Prime Minister under the British Governor-General Richard Gordon Turnbull. Nyerere introduces his own form of African socialism.

Well to add there is something special on February 5th 1967 in Tanzania.

The Arusha Declaration

President Nyerere outlines his own version of socialism, Ujamaa. Nyerere's vision called for socialism, self-reliance and a belief in human equality.

Coincidence? I think not. There's a sorta important event on February 5th where perhaps the Seahawks can make their own declaration. :stirthepot:

Wrong. Tanzania is paying for the ad. And no Tanzania colors need to be part of anything that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. What's next? An Ethiopia ad on the field?

Anyone that thinks we are winning games because of an ugly ass Tanzania ad needs their head examined.

We win because we have a kick ass team. The Tanzania stuff is just fun.

A proctologist could probably help you with your problem. It might take two of them, that stick is up there pretty far.

Looks like you're asking a little much there Zeb. I'll never understand the way some people's children act. Some kids just can't have fun. They sit on the ground and pout and throw rocks.

Many of us were knocking the Tanzania stuff as an eyesore at the beginning of the year.

Now if they ever take it down we are going to have a riot on our hands.

Only thing we are missing now are blue end zones. We have always done A LOT better with those. Combine them with Tanzania and 58-0 might become a regular occurrence!

Seaswab just has to be that guy, probably eats his toast with no butter, no peanut butter, no jelly, no cinnamon & sugar, just straight up burnt bread. Tells the kids around the neighborhood that Santa and the Easter bunny are fake, even if that kids between the ages of 3-6, he doesn't care, he wants them as miserable as he is. For his birthday he wants a vanilla cake, no frosting either, just the vanilla cake.

No fun in life, whatsoever!

Rolands just a jerk who needs a girlfriend...

At the stadium, before the game, I touched the Tanzania elephant's trunk for luck. IT WORKED!
