After reading this,
http://www.torontosun.com/2012/12/21/th ... lls-series
and seeing all the large amount fans here in Toronto come out, and reading the CDN fan stats that someone posted here, why not come out and embrace your northerny neighbours?!

This city is ripe for the pickin'. You can't shake off the existing groups of Pack/Steel/Boys fans but there is no dominant NFL team. And with the west provinces, already cheering for the hawks, it seems to be a no-brainer. (Ok there won't be much support from Quebec and the Atlantic provinces but Toronto is the hub!)

I was thinking that the management brass should do something (doesn't have to be big) to show that Seattle cares. Example, a contest to attend a game would be great. Showcasing Canadian fans on the website, Canadian appearances, etc. Take advantage of the current hype/excitement as Seahawk games are now being broadcasted more often and certainly getting alot of radio time.

"Seahawks eh?!"

Thoughts?

Where is this "Canada" you speak of?

What is their native tongue and traditions?

Would they embrace such a violent sport?

We should get pro hockey any day now-maybe the teams could set up a package together.

Canada is a big place.

The Seahawks are already Western Canada's team. There was a poll posted recently that showed this.

They will NEVER be Eastern Canada's team. Eastern Canada is closer to many different East coast teams. It's like telling Seattle hockey fans to root for the Toronto Maple Leafs when the Vancouver Canucks are so much closer.

We create a PNW Army. We appoint Paul Allen as Commander in Chief. We train for a year then we invade Canada and proclaim the Seahawks as the national team. That and no more French speaking.

Ok then, how do the hawks become Toronto's team?! Should we send you an Argonaut player lol?!
:)

I get what your saying but Toronto does not have a true NFL team to root & cheer for. I think it is possible...

Canada is too large and diverse to ever settle on a single NFL team. I doubt that it would happen even if there was a team based in Canada.

Use the Cowboys angle.

Please! The last time the Leafs played a meaningful game we received our TV signal with an aerial and the TV was black and white! Thank God for the advent of regional TV coverage. The only time I get tormented with them now is when they are playing somebody local. On a bright note, this is the best the Leafs have looked in December in 50 years! With no games being played they are unable to assume the natural position of all leafs - in the gutter! :thirishdrinkers:

Yeah dude, Canada is huge and something like 90% of the population is within 20km of the border. As such, cities tend to glom on to the team that's closest; Toronto and Buffalo, Windsor and Detroit, the Maritimes and New England, Winnipeg and Minnesota, Seattle and Vancouver. Then there's those who naturally glom onto the front runners (and you get that Everywhere).

There won't ever be a single "canada's team". Sorry brah...

We just need a Canadian Recruitment drive. There are basically two countries in Canada, Quebec (i.e. Toronto) and the rest of Canada. We already own "the rest of" Canada's coolest City (Vancouver), so we just need to hard sweep Toronto Maple Leafs boards, tell them what a great team they are, then invite them to join Seahawks.Net. I would be willing to wager, within 48 hours, I could get 50 Toronto based Canadians to join Hawks Nation.

Is Vancouver really Canada's coolest city if you have to identify it in brackets? I love the city of Vancouver, just too many Canuck fans live there for my liking. ;)

Best way to do that would be to play at least one "home" game per year in Canada. And I think we can all agree to a big HELL THE F--- NO to that.

I am Canadian, and I would agree 100%. I enjoy travelling to Seattle for a game once a year, and watching the remainder of the season on television.

My first post has a home....

Seahawks fan of 25 years living in Toronto. Needed to pick a team in high school to be my favourite (proper spelling...) and wanted to pick a team nobody else was a fan of. At the time and being a casual fan, the Seahawks were a perfect fit.

Gotta admit, this is the most excited I've ever been about the team. And was really surprised at the number of Seahawks fans at the game a couple of weeks back.

As both a fan of the Seahawks and the Leafs, it's been a long grind. That said, there's something special going on with this team this year....

Can't wait for Sunday and better yet, the weeks beyond.

My plan for getting Canada more involved in the NFL. (And it's great, which is why it won't happen):

1. Move Jacksonville Jaguars to Vancouver. (Florida doesn't deserve 3 NFL teams and J-ville in no way merits a franchise.)
2. Move Jags (now the Griz?) into NFC West.
3. Boot the useless Cardinals over to the AFC South.

This would be awesome on so many levels. Nearby rival for the Hawks and 49ers. Less travel for the Hawks. Another team in the Pacific time zone. International appeal. What's not to love?

We need a player like Frank on the team these days, as the Leafs are awful at the moment.

Buffalo made that mistake to expand their fanbase, but that has backfired to an extent (they still make decent profit, but lose a home game in the process). Seahawks don't need to go crazy in expanding their fanbase, especially with the current future of this team. I absolutely love Vancouver, but the atmosphere of a game there will be awful in comparison.

I loved that the Hawks played in my hometown, but it was nowhere the same as when I went to games in Seattle and was part of the 12th man, it was a thing I will never forget and hope to do again.

As great as it would be to see the Hawks up here in Vancouver, there is now way in hell I want that Buffalo/Toronto crap to happen. I do wonder how much of a home croud the Hawks would get if that did happen? I would hazard a guess that at leasst 65% of the Stadium would be filled with Hawks fans maybe more depending on who they are playing.

As someone one from Vancouver I don't like what buffalo did. I believe the fanbase would show better but I don't want that. I want a real NFL experience. If you can't get off your lazy you know what, to drive 3 hours or so to watch a game in an amazing city and stadium then stay at home and watch them on TV nothing wrong with that. Props for the Canadian flag hanging from there rafters as well. Seattle is like a home away from home. great place.

The Canadian fans should make the pilgrimage to the Clink. Come on down and let us show you a good time.

I've met fans from Canada and they are rabid.

My plan for getting Canada more involved in the NFL. (And it's great, which is why it won't happen):

1. Move Jacksonville Jaguars to Vancouver. (Florida doesn't deserve 3 NFL teams and J-ville in no way merits a franchise.)
2. Move Jags (now the Griz?) into NFC West.
3. Boot the useless Cardinals over to the AFC South.

This would be awesome on so many levels. Nearby rival for the Hawks and 49ers. Less travel for the Hawks. Another team in the Pacific time zone. International appeal. What's not to love?


I would be so conflicted if this ever happened! I am a diehard Hawks fan and to see my home team in the same division as my Hawks I wouldn't know what the hell to do... If it was the Jags that moved though at least I know it wouldn't be a competitive rivalry for the next decade and I could just go on supporting my Hawks!
