Not all of them, necessarily. All fan bases have the good, the bad and the ignorant. Seattle may well have an excess of morons rooting for them at the moment given their recent success due to the bandwagon fan effect. All I know is that I tweeted something about the fact that they were fined 300 thousand frigging dollars for breaking the rules during their OTA’s this spring, and I got buried in an avalanche of complete fucking ignorance.
Let’s break it down.
1. $300,000 is a serious fine for the league to assess, so obviously the bosses on Park Avenue considered it a serious offense.
2. Pete Carroll has a well-documented history of cheating.
3. The league restricted contact in OTA’s as a direct result of the increased focus on preventing player injuries (and lawsuits).
4. By restricting contact you by definition slow down the speed of the drills/practice. That is both common sense and physics.
5. Coaches, GM’s and players have all been bitching about the new restrictions on contact in OTA’s. They universally complain about the fact that the restricted contact slows down the practice and does not allow them to simulate game speed, run actual plays and toughen themselves physically for the season.
6. Breaking the rules and allowing contact UNQUESTIONABLY gives a team a competitive advantage, and this is the reason the Seahawks faced a massive fine.
So each and every one of the Seahawks fans who disputed the fine and the benefit of the cheating that they did is hereby welcome to lick my left nut. You are ignorant, you are stupid, and anyone with the slightest knowledge of the game laughs at you.
