This. He looks like a jackass in all of this.
What Seattle did was a chicken s**t move, but the NFL isn't stupid when it comes to legal issues. They probably went over this scenario before they ever allowed these candyass teams to restrict their ticket sales. The only thing Seattle's actions proved to me is their higher ups were afraid of 49ers fans' invading their stadium and ruining their advantage (which is very real, like it or not). Sadly, they were literally inches away from losing even with their homefield advantage. If that game was on a neutral field, they probably lose. LisaTwelve makes a good point about them being able to win on the road, however, they struggled on the road against good teams (like Carolina, Indy, SF), mediocre teams (like STL) and even against some crappy teams (like the Texans). They only struggled in 2 regular season games at home. They managed to get some road wins, but they were not even close to the same team as they were at home.
I'm glad they restricted sales. Let them use any advantage they can. Meanwhile, the 49ers will continue winning without relying on people off the field for help.
