  5. Why does he have to say anything? The dude just wants to play football. Who says you have to be a certain way? I think it's cool he's doing whatever the f he wants. He's one of the best at his job and he's a champion. Oh and the Sedins are classy as hell I agree but hey how many championships?? Just saying...

  6. Can’t even imagine the hate though if someone on the Patriots would do what Lynch did in those pressers

  7. Who wants to know more about him? Seahawks fans don't care. Those are the only people that should matter to any Seattle player outside of the team.

  8. Interesting take on the Hawks - not that I care, well...I cared enough to share it: Have we forgotten the Seahawks’ checkered relationship with ethics? Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. USA TODAY Sports photo by Joe Nicholson. It’s been a rough week to be a New England Patriots fan. The day after handily defeating the Indianapolis Colts, when they should have been celebrating the team’s thunderous win in the AFC Championship game, fans instead instantly found themselves on defense thanks to a few deflated footballs. Instantly, the legions of bitter Patriots haters around the nation — both fans and members of the media themselves — went on the offensive. Suddenly, people who had been silent about the NFL’s other, more serious, scandals found their voice to attack the New England Patriots. Of course, the hatred isn’t because the Patriots have really been proven to have done anything wrong. It’s really because of the team’s enormous success over the years that they are a target; the faux outrage is just a mask for jealousy. While it’s true that Bill Belichick was once caught violating the rules, he and the team were appropriately punished for it and have moved on. That is truly the only questionable behavior during Kraft-Belichick-Brady era; they have otherwise been model NFL citizens. If the many newly discovered moral centers in football fans were real, the team they would be hating in this Super Bowl would be the Seattle Seahawks, not the New England Patriots. After all, it was their players who failed drug tests and were suspended in 2012. One of the players who tested positive was Richard Sherman, their star cornerback, though his suspension was overturned on appeal. Indeed, under Pete Carroll, the Seattle Seahawks have led the league in drug-related suspensions. Yet, strangely, there have been no calls for a wider investigation into the franchise, or for Carroll himself to be penalized in any way for the drug epidemic in his locker room. Of course, questionable ethics is nothing new for Pete Carroll, whose checkered past should always be part of any conversation about him. After all, Carroll ended up back in the National Football League after fleeing his job coaching the USC Trojans as scandal embroiled that team. The NCAA found the team, under Carroll’s control, guilty of multiple recruiting violations — such as cash kickbacks for a star tailback and his family — but Carroll had already leapt into a promotion with his golden parachute by the time the findings came down. The NCAA forced USC to vacate a number of its wins, barred the Trojans from bowl games and docked the team 30 scholarships. None of this seems to bother anyone anymore. Just as we have dismissed Sean Payton’s role in Bountygate with the New Orleans Saints, football fans seem more than ready and willing to grant Carroll a clean slate. Belichick, though, made a mistake and was penalized once, and yet it seems to dog him forever. Why the double standard? The answer, of course, is that all of this isn’t about what the Patriots may or may not have done with any footballs, but the fact that they’re winners. That’s reason enough for most fans to assume guilt, labeling the Patriots the villains of the contest, despite the Seahawks’ many sins. Not only are the Seahawks troubled as a franchise, they have the less appealing players. Marshawn Lynch’s constant trolling of the press by refusing to even speak to them makes him appear to be an arrogant prima donna. While the Seahawks players are saying our players aren’t that great, bashing Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady, our coach praises them. So if you find Tom Brady’s success obnoxious rather than inspirational that’s up to you. If you think Belichick is annoying, you can root against the New England Patriots as much as you want. Just don’t pretend you’re making an ethical decision by choosing to root for a team with an endemic culture of corruption instead. That’s not only ridiculous; now that you’re aware of Seattle’s history and ignorance is no longer an excuse, it’s supremely hypocritical. So root for whichever team you want on Sunday, just be honest about your motivation. http://red207.bangordailynews.com/2015/01/29/have-we-forgotten-the-seahawks-checkered-relationship-with-ethics/

  9. yup hes the man all right. Just something to think about (i know lynch didn't) According to a 2009 Sports Illustrated article, 78% of National Football League players are either bankrupt or in financial trouble within two years of retirement. Many high profile players venture into broadcasting jobs after their career to keep the money flowing in. Who the hell would hire this guy After this stunt? who votes in the nhl hall of Famers? I thought it was media personnel? If so who the hell in the media would vote for this clown? lastly, what's the big deal? Why cant he talk to the media for 5 minutes. Just humour us. 99% of the other pro athletes in the world can manage it. I'd be embarrassed if a sedin pulled a stunt like this. But they dont because they're a little classier than Mr. Lynch over there. One guy on this team won't talk. You can't stop another guy on the team from yapping about him being the best all day. There has to be a happy middle. I hope they get destroyed on sunday.

  10. What a pansy! At least tattoo it on your head! Gawd. I never liked him that much. He didn't have much help at times but that's the game, make someone better by being a star. He was always just average to me.

  15. Since guys like Virtanen, Jensen, Shinkaruk, Gaunce, and maybe McCann will be pushing to play some games for us next season, there's going to need to be some room made for those players. I have a hard time believing that all of Matthias, Richardson, and Dorsett will be let go, especially when they provide what we need more of right now (speed and grit), so I believe that other moves are going to be made. I guarantee that at least one of Higgins, Burrows or Kassian will be moved sometime between around the deadline and day two of the draft. Expect picks and/or prospects coming back our way. Trading one of Lack or Markstrom would make for a solid return as well. One of those guys alone would be able to fetch us an NHL-ready prospect or another 2nd. Folks, if we won't be acquiring at least one young prospect coming back our way, expect some 2nd/3rd round picks instead. Hey, maybe we'll get some of both in return? It all depends on who's moved, what Benning wants, and what other GM's are willing to give up. More 1st picks would be nice (we all know that), but being realistic, we'd have to move one of Vrbata or Bieksa for that to happen, and being realistic, the chances are that that's just not going to happen, so it's barely worth even debating. The 2nd/3rd round gives us the opportunity to draft guys like Pilon, Vande Sompel, Musil, Brisebois, Yan, Juulsen, Gawdin, Dunn, Spencer, Knott, Speers, Wotherspoon, Meloche, Andersson, Beauvillier, Trenin, Carrier, Gropp, Kolesar, Jesse Gabrielle, Korostelev, and more. There's no need going all-in for another 1st round pick when there are other highly coveted guys like these that are likely to go somewhere in the 2nd and 3rd round, and we wouldn't have to move as much to acquire these picks. There's A LOT of depth to this draft. I'm excited.

  16. I still just want to see benning somehow net another 1st 2nd and a 3rd or any mixture of a few of each. Having 5-6 picks in the first 2 or 3 rounds would make me soooo happy. We have NOT had the ability to take genuine gambles on players with high risk high reward probability in such a long time. Even with additional 1st round picks we've taken the BPA instead of taking a risk as an organization with needs. 5-6 picks in the first 3 rounds and spend at least 2 of them on that RH PMD we need. I will be happy knowing we gambled on a future possible top 4 offensive engine for once as opposed to yet another bpa safe pick at a redundant position

  19. Lets be honest, if you're living in North America and follow a European team that will be the case for most people. That or family. I support the Canucks but I don't consider myself any less of a fan because I live thousands of miles away. As long as you don't jump off the bandwagon when the going gets tough or change allegiance then you're as much a fan as anybody else. I hate Chelsea though. That was a poor choice
