I like the implied respect though.
you are joking right? everywhere i look i see someone with a seahawks jersey, just was at disneyland last week and all i saw was seahawks jerseys...
That's because they won the super bowl a month ago. The first Super Bowl in franchise history. I never heard that a Seahawk fan could be called a front-runner before considering our past. You should tell the 49er fans that, they won't like it.
The reason the Steeler, Packers, Yankees, Lakers, etc. have picked up so many out of state (front running) fans is that they have had extremely long, sustained histories of success or dominance. I wish that were the Seahawks, but sadly it isn't... yet.
And I do give fans respect for riding with tough times and still being vocal and out there. Like the Raiders, Browns, Chiefs, Bills. That's why I have so much respect for Knick fans.
