  • I was a senior in high school when the Seahawks were an expansion team. I have watched almost every single Seahawk game except for a few lean years I served in the Navy (before armed forces NFL broadcasts were wide spread). I am the biggest Seahawk fan in the world. Even during the lean years of Ken Behring. Even when the worst QB in Seahawk history, Stan Gelbaugh, was the starter.

    I attended practices in Cheney when Chuck Knox was the coach. I got an autograph from Kenny Easley. I had a Wheaties box with Steve Largent on the cover, signed by Steve Largent. I vividly recall Derrick Thomas sacking Dave Krieg seven times in one game, yet Krieg Hit Paul Skansi at the end to win the game. I recall Curt Warner's first carry from scrimmage against the KC Chiefs, an 80 yard scamper that made me an instant believer that he was a real gem. I'm still pissed that Seattle passed on the opportunity to draft Tony Dorsett to take Steve Niehaus instead. I believe the best Seahawk that ran in to a string of bad luck, and never reached a very high ceiling was running back Derrick Fenner. I think the most under appreciated Seahawk is Dan Doornink. He was surprisingly good.

    Why all the justification? I'm asking that you consider such things instead of post count when passing judgement on my posts. I have lived and breathed the Seahawks before many of you were born. I have played, coached, and followed football as a huge fan of the game for over forty years.

    I am not a "fair weather fan" that just happened to show up because Seattle is suddenly good. I have loved this team for a long, long time.

  • Welcome Mick063.

    Nice walk down memory lane. The .Net board is constantly evolving, posters will come and go but the hope is that the spirit of reasonable discussions can remain. Though that isn't always the case since we all are trying out our comic material on a daily basis.

    There is the Shack for some down dirty, let your hair down and tell a poster how you really feel. The mods try to keep the main forum free of personal attacks. Again, welcome aboard!

  • Welcome to Seahawks.net.

    You seem pretty old to be posting. lol

    You will find that there are some here that hate on posters such as yourself that know about football and the Seahawks for real rather than being a giggle queen.

    :D

  • I am another long time fan, but it sounds like you we're more serious in the early years. I moved to Washington in 1975 so I was around from the beginning as well. I am a huge Seahawks fan and couldn't be more excited for this upcoming season.

    Welcome to the .net it has changed my understanding of the game and brought m to new level of addiction!

  • Welcome Mick, I've been there with ya the whole ride and only missed the games that were played while I was out at sea or weren't nationally televised ( alot unfortunately) from 1981 to 1985.

    Only disagree with one point. I loved Fenner but Marcus Tubbs has to be the best player to deal with the bad luck. Only played healthy one year and was all the difference in the world on that 05 super bowl defense. When he was on the field the defensive stats reflected enormously but unfortunately he could never stay healthy and didn't last.

    Look forward to your post count going way up. Welcome.

  • I don't think the ladies and gentlemen here take your post count as a sign of knowledge. But I think those here on this board do take into account your knowledge in the game and are willing to let you know if they disagree. Which is why I am constantly on the board lurking about in the shadows. Rarely do I post because someone eventually asks the same question I would have asked and every time there is a reply.

    Devotion is rarely questioned, knowledge is. Welcome from one of the longer tenured but smallest post count!

    Don't worry newbs, there are several Whiner fans that post here but it's OK. We understand how bad their forums are and how much they want to associate themselves with Hawk fans in the hope that our awesomeness will rub off on them that we put up with 'em here.

  • Welcome! .NET is one of the only forums on the interwebz that doesn't take post count into account. As has been said before, if you bring it and you don't act like a complete Douche, you'll fit in the same as those with 10k posts.

    But you will have to carry my pads back to the locker room, rookie!

    Ahh what the hell, welcome aboard anyway. Now get a Sherman avatar to go with that screen name.

  • Through the years, I've seen so many very dedicated fans sit down at my bar and say, "I like your Seahawk light". *I have one of those neon lights made in the shape of the Seahawk logo. Almost always a conversation about the Hawks ensues.
    One of the things I want to know about them is, "are you a poster on .net or seahawk sal........something"? Never once has someone said, "Yes, I am so & so on .net" or something that I can identify with. It is amazing to me that I don't run into someone who I would have something in common with when talking Seahawks.
    There was one guy........Frosty.........who did post here and also worked in my little town (Hoonah Alaska) and did some clean-up for the government for a spell.
    What prompted this? Oh, how this guy is a first time poster but has been a dedicated Hawk fan since the inception of the team.

  • Appreciate the warm welcome.

    I felt very confident that Seattle would reach the Super bowl last year. They were rolling at the end of the season. If I can take one thing from last year, it is that playing at home is huge for post season.

    I know the Giants and Steelers have won it all by playing all of their playoff games on the road. Just shows how special those teams were. I know that San Francisco and Baltimore won road games to reach the title game last year. Good teams just get it done. Regardless, Seattle typically has to fly further than anyone else and it isn't just about the flight, but the three time zone transition when traveling to the East Coast as well.

    If the Seahawks can get one or two home games in the post season, I think they reach the promise land. The home crowd would be really, really nice for at least one playoff game and would likely give them just enough push to get them to the finish line.
