    Each week is a family get together with food and drink. I get to relax from all of real life and just enjoy for 3 hours.

    I have followed this team since I was a kid going to Cheney, to taking my whole family to playoff games at the stadium in the south endzone. It is my "thing" and I am addicted and a fanatic.

    The most expensive articles of clothing I own are Seahawks jerseys. I am easy to buy for because if it has to do with my team, I love it!

    This place is a home for me to get together with a bunch of other crazy bastards with unhealthy love and devotion for my team.

    I want to buy you all a schooner of delicious, dark beer, pour you a shot of Irish single malt and toast to "Go Hawks"

  • Easiest place for Seahawk news, and great for good discussion and analysis. I especially like reading Kearly's, English's and Sharkhawk's posts.

    As far as the "2nd family" aspect, I delved into that back in 2000 on an "X-Men" movie forum because I was so excited about that finally coming out. I felt that went way too far and decided never to let that happen again. It was kinda nice, but I was way too addicted to that "community" we built.

    I'm fine with just lurking here, with occasional posts. I'm already addicted to this site as it is and my girlfriend hates it. Ah well.

    For me its the laughs and the jokes. I always read the OP's, but after that I very rarely even read the deep, serious discussions.


    I opted for "Other" simply because "All the above" was not an option. All the reasons you cited are the reasons this has been my home page for 15+ years.

  • Dunno. Think I'm too much of a pussy to self harm properly.

    Second would be the serious analysis stuff.

    Third would be to get the mood of the fans - I have only met one other Seahawks fan in the flesh since a gathering in London in 1992, and I only got to shout out the Window of my car to him.

    Fourth is so I get to find out what this 'petting zoo' is when it's busted by the FBI. My working theory is that it's an amateur attempt at a human centipede using a stapler.

  • I'm fairly new here, but it seems to have a lot of traffic, so it's a great place to get current updates, talk football etc. Of course, I've been told I "think I'm better than everyone" because I said I don't do Twitter. Not sure what that means, but oh well hahahahaha. Whatever social media people use, that's awesome. I'm on FB way too much too. I'm sure at some point I'll jump in on the Twitter thing, it's bound to happen eventually :mrgreen:
    Anyone who truly knows me knows I don't think I'm better than other people, just a true Hawks fan who loves talking football. Oh well, won't be the last time someone assumes they know me, even if they don't. I still like coming here, people seem really passionate about the Hawks, that's what truly matters to me.

  • pehawk wrote:Well, what is the issue causing thoughts of exodus?


    I think it is more of a 'times they are a'changing' thing with some people, including me.

    Similar to what Lymon said, what can be said about any and all topics is usually said in the first
    two or three posts of the first relevant thread. The rest becomes "me too" or a shouting match.
    I stay because it IS a great place to find info fast and [Wilson voice] like I always say [/Wilson voice]
    I cherish the relationships that I have formed here, so I'll always stick around.

    The board has outgrown it's "Todd's Living Room" vibe for better and worse, I suppose. People
    are here in droves, but very few actually would know each other if they met up face-to-face.
    I'm guilty of it to some extent, since I haven't taken, or don't want to bother with, a journey down
    to Axis. Anything in our Puget Sound Region, I'm usually game for, though.

    Kudos to some of the "newer" people, like Roland, who make an effort to get out from behind the keyboard
    and keep the offline part of this community alive.

  • Hopefully the next time my one of my bands does another Seahawks party, I can get some ppl from .net out. It would be cool to match faces to some of the ppl on here. I already know Chuck (psychobabbler) and Skip (not sure what his screenname is).

    Thanks, Riley.

    That was a fair synopsis. Less finger-pointing and curmudgeonly…more of honest reflection of changing times. Change isn’t bad or good, it just is.

    You and I will meet anyone, anytime, anywhere….but not Axis. Was far for me too.

  • I found .Net while living in Illinois and starving for Seahawk news. When I moved back to Seattle, I continued to lurk because it was still the best place to find breaking news all in one place. Now that I'm living in (ick) Pittsburgh, I
    appreciate it even more. This site has traveled across the country with me and, even though i don't post often, it feels like home. I love.Net for all the things listed and more. But number one has to be...The Starfish Thread.

  • Since there is such a huge rivalry developing between our teams, what better place than to get the insider perspective and reports than a Seahawks MB? ;)
