So, a young man comes to Seattle to play for the Seattle Seahawks and works his tail off for 11 years, amasses a 112-63-1 record, takes the team to nine playoff appearances, two Super Bowl appearances, and wins it in just his second year in the league, visits sick kids at Children’s Hospital every week, and agrees to a trade that will bring a lot of quality players to Seattle in the future.
And when the time comes to give him a thank you and a long standing ovation for all his work and dedication and effort in the stadium he helped fill for all that time, he gets booed.
A wonderful incentive for other young men to come in and work hard and dedicate themselves to the game and the fans and the city, right? Wow! I am ashamed of Seattle and its bush-league fans.
Good luck in Denver, Russell. I hope you beat the Seahawks for another 11 years of your career, and enjoy your lucrative contract. You deserve all the success in the world. Seattle football fans don’t.
