Well I loved RW. It has only been as I learned more about his dysfunction within the team and as my blinkers came off that my screaming at the play calling should have been more directled at him over the last few years.

However I think secretly I knew that the problem was him not executing the game plan.

But he was a Hawk!. There was a time not counting the later years he was part of the winning culture.

Therefore, I am now glad he is gone, BUT, I don't believe he should be boo'ed regardless if he is a narcissist, for some time he was our narcissist, I just wish he had not shit the bed.

I think, best case, Adam, Diggs, Taylor and Brooks roll out the welcome mat for him, give him some dap for old times sake, and then knock him on his ass 5 or 6 times, roll him up in said welcome mat, slap a 'Let's Ride' sticker on it, and get his teammates to roll him out the stadium.
Ha!

This.

Was I pleased with the way Russell handled his departure? No. Do I think that he was disingenuous with his fans about his desire to play here for rest of his career? Yes.

However, in a dilemma like this one, I always try to look at the bottom line vs. the most recent individual factors, and the plusses of Russell's time here far outweigh the minuses.

Therefore, I am firmly in the "cheer" Russell category if I were in the crowd for his return.

They booed Sherman. SHERMAN.

A guy that got hurt playing for us on a bad field. A guy that the SEAHAWKS decided NOT to resign.

The guy responsible for the single most important regular-season play in Seahawk history.

They booed HIM. He should have a statue outside of the stadium remembering his greatness (along with the LOB and Lynch). But no.

If they can boo Sherman, who cares who else they decide to boo? (Sometimes our fans are morons.)

Richard Sherman is probably my favorite Hawk ever. I hate that he got boo'd and hope that he knows there are still fans who appreciate him.

With all the recent news about this trade stuff and Wilson's true colors, he's getting booed out of the building.

I've seen split comments on this site - ranging from continued adoration of RW to a real dislike. But we're a small community compared to the general fan base so I'm not able to gage a larger audience.

However, it did open my eyes when my female eighty year old relative (and a long time season ticket holder) said "That bastard!" when speaking of RW3. I was surprized that she was so mad about his comments etc because she's not a social media person.

I just hope our local news crews will concentrate on our new and current players - I DON'T want to see any interviews with our past QB - he has nothing new to say.

I will probably not be at that game. But if I am...

At the exact moment Wilson is introduced as the Broncos' QB, I plan to be drinking beer. So I won't be uttering any sound at all at that moment.

But that won't last. As soon as the beer is finished, I'll cut the bottom off the beer cup, and it becomes my megaphone for the rest of the game.

Wilson's cup of admiration from the 12's have been overflowing for the last 4 years. Seattle fans have cheered, praised and some worshiped the ground he walks on. I believe he actually thinks he is going to get another pass and fans will stand and cheer him again as he returns to show his dominance as QB Legend.
Hell No! Let the seismic meter and RW3 tap out!

I expect a mixed reaction at the beginning. Every time he steps on the field tho, the booing should commence just to try n mess with him and help the team.
