Do members of Seahawks comment in and read this forum?

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • As can be seen in this thread, I think it is fairly clear that personnel or representatives of personnel are active on .net.

    That is the only logical explanation for the illogical reasoning put forth to defend areas or personnel that need addressing.

  • We aren't discussing coaching philosophy. We are discussing dopplegangers and members of the seahawk organization and whether you think they read and comment (or have representatives do it) in the largest seahawks forum in the world.

    Much like many sports stars, celebrities, businesses and organizations hire companies that specifically deal in the online presence and reputation of their clients.

    Take ACfan for example. Joined as soon as he became a seahawk and was basically a cheerleader for Collins. Even after an atrocious showing he would be pumping him up in various threads, calling for patience, talking him up etc. It always seemed ver suspicious to me. I am a huge Bennett fan, but am not blind to some of his weaknesses and bad games. Same goes for wilson. Love the guy, but he does have some things to work on. Some posters take it beyond being a fan of a player or coach and bring it to mindnumbing levels of stubbornness. Real fans with no alternative motives want the best for the team, and want them to go all the way every year. With that comes our opinions based on many sources as to what is holding the team back. It seems weird that some posters don't seem to be rooting for the team as a whole, but rather defend individual components of the team and would rather accept not winning than replacing the slow moving parts.

    I have observed this with several different posters, and about several different players and coaches.

    For example, I think Sherman is a great cornerback, but realize he has a big mouth. I have no personal vested interest in him personally. If getting a lombardi means cutting ties with him, then do it. On the other side of the coin, if you have to deal with the big mouth but he provides you the best shot at winning the SB, then I'll deal with some of the things he does.

    Do you think they come here siouxhawk?

  • I know for a fact players, coaches, front office folks, VPs, have read through .NET over the years. Some of them I know specifically but I won't name names. DAVE PEARSON.

    (LOL, sorry couldn't help myself.)

    No, I do not. I think the PR or marketing department likely does, however.

    Why?

    As has been said, I could see the players keeping up to date with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by and large. There's probably a ton of them that don't even know .Net exists. But it's marketing and PR's job to keep fans informed and help the team make money, so I'm sure they peruse all the sites to leave no stone unturned.

I asked him if he browsed .Net and he said, "yes, some of us like to lurk in there..coaches too." Don't ask, I won't name said player even though he is long retired.

    I don't know if any current players do...

    But come on, Anthony! HAS to be Ciara, right?? Only a spouse or a family member could be that insanely one-sided and immovable about a player. :D

    PS Not picking on you Anthony! ... your passion is admirable.


    Its funny that you say that because I actually had a similar thought. I don't think it would actually be Ciara but I could see one of Russ's PR guys or what ever doing it. I mean no offense if you are a legit person Anthony but your over the top love fest for Wilson is hard to take serious.

    This wasnt meant as a personal attack at all I just wanted to express my opinion on possible seahawk players posting here.

  • That last comment was weird. Why would anyone on a Hawks fan site bust someone's balls for having a deep admiration for the best quarterback this franchise has ever known? And while I'm on the subject, I think it's strange that some feel it's their duty or something to be over-the-top critical of Russ. Sure he has some minor flaws, but the way he plays the game and his devotion to his team can't be touched.

  • We are the biggest Seahawks forum on the Net, we have Media stealing topics and story lines and posting them, The NFL has us on the 10 most wanted list for Domain Name. Being able to parse thru the Bullshit posts and see what the fan base that is closest to the team, with the most local members for PR and thoughts on things, it seems like a natural thing to check in here. Players would look and lurk to see what fans are feeling about something that has happened be it a trade, a event or a play or call by a referee. Cheerleaders Amber Lancaster for one and some of her co workers were and are members here and she stated that players do look in as well.

    Tweets and other forms of media may be great for short conversations but more thoughtful posts and more knowledgeable conversations would happen on long standing places that have historically been used to glean fan feelings such as ours.

    Also it is easier to be anonymous as well if they did post.

    Just judging this post at face value. Not familiar with him, and I could easily be wrong. That post just seemed very condescending and as though he has it figured out, but the rest of the posters are clueless. Of course there are some ridiculous viewpoints, but overall I think the posters here are pretty well informed.

  • Are you kidding? Montana is correct. Actual members of the Hawks wouldn't give this place the time of day. This place isn't original in that regard, so that's why I believe NFL players predominantly stick to social media they can control, twitter, instagram, Facebook and The Players Forum.

  • Some of the trolls now and then probably are players trying to be cause some chaos, LOL. Seriously though, you can't tell me that players don't have significant others or friends that browse online and find things here and there that they mention to that player and I'm sure he is then curious and looks a little for himself. I firmly believe players do read these forums but probably don't post.

    History has proven you wrong before and it does now as well, we have board owners that know for a fact that Player and Coaches and others have come in here, we have Media people that have come here and given opinions or story's.

    I think I would believe them over you.

    It would make sense that marketing and PR staff would come here from time to time. Why wouldn't they? This is the largest Hawk forum there is, they should be coming here to see what fans are talking about.

    But players and coaches? I'd need to see proof of that. I guess for the novelty of seeing if fans are talking about them, but that's maybe a one time thing, and very seldom.
