The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13

  • So we've got Nike (I presume since I've seen him wearing a shirt with a big nike logo on the front in several interviews), Levi, Gatorade, Vizio and now an insurance company endorsement deal? Sounds like Mr Wilson is doing just fine financially :)

  • RW played baseball and football despite being 'too short'.

    what I want to see is a funny commercial about RW deciding to try basketball, having some pundit say he's too short, and dunking over someone.

    This can continue in other commercials about all the other things russell isn't able to do.

    "RW you must be this tall to ride this ride, sorry" SO RW rides piggy back on a midget in a trench coat to get on the ride and does it anyways.

    RW's mom hides cookies on the top shelf. RW throws a ball that roccochets around the kitchen and knocks the cookies into his hands.

    I could go on all day with really bad cliches like this.

  • I think it would be pretty funny if Russell Wilson's commercial revolves around him being TOO tall for various activities/things. Go for an ironic angle.

    Like he's lining up to go onto a ride at a theme park or water park and just as it gets to his turn, the attendant ushers him away for being above the height limit (it's a kid's ride). Then he's getting fitted at the shopping mall for new clothes and the sales rep brings him pants that are way too short. He plays a pick-up football game with a bunch of elementary school kids in his neighborhood in the street or at a park and gets revered by the kids for basically being the tallest player. Etc. Anything else you guys can come with, lol.

  • AmFam said Wilson was already known to the company because his wife, Ashton, worked at the insurer’s headquarters in Madison, Wisc., when Wilson was a senior at the University of Wisconsin.

    That would be awesome! I would love to see a commercial like that. You could even throw in a montage of him training to overcome his "height limitations". Squeezing (AKA willing) himself through a slide that is too small for him, rocking the flood-ready short pants to a club and starting a new fashion, and then fade out of the commercial with him lounging sideways on the kids ride like a boss.

    I had my insurance spread out through different companies for price reasons and my brother recommended giving AmFam a call so I did and they beat every single rate and that is on 5 Vehicles (two of my kids) my home, rental house, Motor home and boat. I now have one company for everything and an agent that I trust. I cannot recommend them enough. If you haven't shopped them you should.

    Micheal Phillips agency in Monroe is who I go through and I highly recommend her. PM me if you want her number. Sorry, shameless plug but I really do trust her and would recommend her to everyone.

  • I don't begrudge Russell any opportunity to cash in on his obvious talent and personality. What I think is great is that none of this crap will get to his head. Make hay while you can.

  • Yeah, Manning was the highest paid player in the NFL (or close to it.) Russell has a tiny contract. The man deserves to make way more than he does. I don't have a problem with it unless it becomes a distraction. I highly, highly doubt that will ever be the case.

  • My wife works for State Farm and calls people like you all the time, BGhawk. She said you shouldn't put your info on the Internet, because they buy the leads from a company dedicated to getting that personal info from online insurance quotes and stuff. If you say "never call me again" they are supposed to take you off the list and try to get their money back for the bad lead. You don't have to sound rude, either!

    AmFam has pretty good rates, too.

  • The company I just left 2 days ago runs the backend that processed all AmFam property claims. Biggest a-holes on Earth. This actually makes me sad. I've never dealt with bigger jerks in my life than the "Bigwigs" who run the company.
