Paul Allen, Thank you.

  • Paul Allen, Thank you for not being a middling owner, and putting this team in a place to succeed.
    Thank you for not telling the front office to start the guy you paid money to in the offseason, rather than the 3rd round rookie. Thank you for putting your trust into PC and JS, letting them follow through with their plan, and giving us fans something this exciting to hope for and watch.

    It's an exciting time to be a Hawks fan, and you are a huge reason why. Without you there is no Seahawks.

    I think you have Drew Carey to thank for that.

  • Great post, I look around the league at some of these other owners and really appreciate Paul Allen.

  • I took a tour of the Seahawks facility last year and was escorted by one of the Hawks position coaches. He told me that Paul Allen has made it clear that he wants to be the best owner in the league and is willing to put the right people in place and let them do whatever it takes to win a Superbowl. He wants them to have the best facilities, best food, best equipment, and best staff possible. He has made the Seahawks organization one of the top in the league.

    Paul Allen rocks. Thanks for being the best owner in football.

  • I agree, awesome post! As a fan all I want is an owner, coaching staff and players who care as much as I do about being the best we can be, and winning a Super Bowl. I think we are clearly getting there with Pete, RW, and company. Now let's win one of these elusive suckers for Paul Allen to thank him for making this all possible.

  • Paul you've battled to become a multiple franchise owner. You have done well for the fans of the Blazers and Seahawks. Now let's get rid of the hideous blemish that is Levy Restaurants. Thank you.

  • I hope its thorough and not a rebranding with new policies. Levy used labor ready to hire bartenders in order to reap the almighty dollar. Then they fired everyone over and over...it was a demorilization to the worker and the fans are more deserving.

  • Completely agree in terms of the 'Hawks, kind of funny though that it's kind of the opposite in Portland with the Blazers, but definitely not Jerry Jones extreme. The Kevin Pritchard fiasco and then Rich Cho, the resigning of Darius Miles, etc. Those are some of the things that have occured, but the Blazers are a different story.

    Either way being a fan of both, thank you Paul.

  • Not that a man like Paul would visit a forum like this, but I would also like to give a large THANK YOU to PA. He saved the Hawks from leaving town and has put guys in charge that can and have delivered Easier said than done, he is the wealtheist NFL owner yet is never mentioned. Along this same line of congrats, how about his vision of South Lake Union? I work in the construction industry and have spent several years building what he envisioned a decade ago. It's not a coincident that Amazon has grown as fast as they have. How many people are aware of the brain instatute Paul A is funding? Google this stuff, Paul Allen is a person from the NW that every AMERICAN should be proud of.
