  • Not a fan of white guys rapping. But I could care less who raises the flag these days. That and I'm tired of the organization shoving his music down our throats. God I hope this is a low scoring affair.

  • I'm no hip hop fan, but he lived in Olympia while he was going to Evergreen State College and my niece knew him quite well. She says he's a good guy who is trying to do good things in the world. And --- he loves his town of Seattle and it's sports teams more than anything.

    edited because I'm so frickin' old I said hip hop instead of rap ... which I also can do without.

  • i guess i have been living under a rock, because i have never heard of this guy until now... i am not a fan of rap/hip hop... but this is some seriously amazing musical artwork. Watching that tribute to Dave Niehaus, gave me chills and brings back so many childhood memories of that day and time watching the Mariners, after I would get home from my after school baseball practices... true artistic talent and i will cheer this guy on, and YELL for our Seahawks as he raises Seattle's 12th man flag !!

  • Yeah I'm not trying to harp (yes I am) on this but I hung out w him a lot when he lived in Oly and he has done nothing but get more popular and rep the NW since then so I feel like this is the perfect person for this game

  • Ken Griffey, Jr. has already raised the flag.

    I could think of worse than Macklemore. As many have said, they aren't into rap, but who cares? A lot of people are. I'm not one of them, but I know this guy has done tunes professing his love for the locals, and that, to me, is more worthy than Drew freakin' Carey.

    Drew Carey is part owner of the Sounders and reps Seattle on a regular basis since their inception. He's the driving force behind the fans having input on the GM etc. I think that deserved to get him a spot raising the flag.

  • Are you guys speculating that it might be Macklemore or has it been reported? Any former great Hawk is cool with me, I don't have anything against Mack but I'd rather the flag bearer be a big name to get the crowd pumped.

    I'd love for Shaun Alexander to raise the flag, it's a shame that his career with us ended the way it did.

  • I get why some people want Macklemore, he isn't a terrible rapper and its nice that he "reps" Seattle and all that.

    Honestly, I just want a Seahawk to raise the flag Sunday night. Having a rising star rapper is "neat", but, is this a game for "neat"? Is the crowd going to pop for this guy? Some might, yeah, but is everyone. They need to hit a home run with it Sunday night. Macklemore isn't a home run, he's a double in the gap.

    Change just one word in this post, and it would be a shit storm. Or maybe if you were quite literally blind, you would describe people differently.

    Until then, Peace.

  • If you want a former 49er/Seahawk then I pick Ricky Watters. He'd be absolutely perfect. If the fans can't get up for Ricky who speaks of himself in the third person and was the hardest playing Seahawk maybe ever, then they won't get excited for anything.

    My second choice would be Chad Brown. That SOB played his butt off every single down. He's a legend that seems to have been forgotten. Walk him out there in his old jersey and see the fans go nuts. Ricky or Chad. Either way... you can't lose.

  • Chad Brown, hell no. Hes on the radio here in Denver and any chance he gets he SMASHES the Seahawk organization. He was a Colorado Buffalo and Pittsburgh Stealer and thats it. His time in Seattle was a JOKE to him and he lets everyone in Denver know it. I liked Chad before I heard him on the radio here, now...not so much. Check him out afternoons on Denver ESPN radio.

    Maybe.. it was terrible timing.. MNF the week after losing to his beloved Browns.. I was severely disappointed in the choice for a MNF game.. Sounders had not even played a game yet and he was raising the flag.. Carey was not a good choice at that time.. now, maybe but not Nov 2007

    Slick- the term is "couldn't care less".. if you are inferring that you have total apathy towards the flag raising experience

    Yeah, in retrospect it was a bitter post. I already voiced my opinion in the Shack on this. Should have left it there.

  • Macklemore is a perfect choice in my opinion. He embodies what seattle is. All of his videos and music have seattle references and show the good sides of seattle. He is a long time fan of seattle teams and seems like a great guy. I have never heard of him till now and dont really listen to this kind of music but like others have said his "my oh my" tribute song gives you chills and memories. He is doing great things for seattle and his song is our touchdown music. He is not a guy rapping about random cars, money, girls. He is trying to help make a difference with his music.
