It seems poll responders believe the drama surrounding the Seattle Seahawks is much ado about nothing.
The past couple weeks have been littered with headlines regarding discord within the Seahawks’ locker room, with an ESPN the Magazine story focused on cornerback Richard Sherman serving as the flash point. Seattle is currently running through its OTAs, so the allegations of strife in the locker room have been a consistent question posed to coaches and players alike following practices.
With that backdrop, this week we asked responders what they thought about the whole thing. Here’s the results:

For all the bluster about the issue in the media, the responders to this poll don’t seem to care that much. Although there are few who doubt the veracity of the claims, by far the most popular answer in the poll was the one that expressed ambivalence — provided the Seahawks continue winning. Perhaps the biggest indication that readers consider this a non-issue is the low participation in the poll, as Seahawks polls typically garner at least 150 votes.
There’s another Seahawks OTA open to the media Friday, and one suspects that those who take the podium will again be questioned about discord in the locker room. However, based on the results of this poll, it’s not a question the majority of Seattle fans seem all that concerned about.
