Just ask Christine Michael, Red Bryant and Michael Bennett who have experienced both the collegiate and pro versions (and seem proud of both)
Seems like the licensing agreement has been a win-win so far but, due to the Hawks recent success, the price may be going up . . . DallasNews.com
"Not only does Seattle acknowledge that Texas A&M is the owner, it gave us the ability to say within the NFL … we are the owners and we've licensed the team that right. I believe it helps us in protecting the mark."
A&M and the Seahawks talk often and are already in discussions about the future of the agreement, according to Hinckley.
The royalty is subject to renegotiation after this contractual period, "in response to economic factors such as the cost of living, changed market conditions or similar market factors," the current contract reads.
Also expected to be discussed, according to Hinckley, are issues that weren't commonplace in 2006, such as the use of Twitter and Instagram, among other updates.
A&M representatives typically take at least one trip to a Seahawks game a year — and it's not to ooh and aah over star quarterback Russell Wilson."We go as kind of a mystery shopper, so to speak, and enforce it up there quite a bit," Hinckley said. "They've been a good partner."
The 'Twelves' are not 'real'. It is a group of people who happen to attend games to cheer for a team of cheaters who happen to play in a stadium that was designed to be loud, and nothing more.
You aren't part of the game, you don't put on a uniform, the millionaire players on the Seahawks don't know you and don't give a damn (other than the home field advantage artificially inflating their stats) and none of the rest of the educated universe can wait until you fade back into the rain-soaked obscurity from which you crawled.
