How about we just call ourselves "fans" and stop pretending like anything but their noise-trapping stadium (or replacement refs) have ever impacted a game?

Remember when Kansas City beat their noise record, in an old, outdoor stadium? You know what Chiefs fans call themselves? Fans.

I like this idea.

Regarding zaghawk's picture, that's obviously a very small segment of the SF fanbase (embarrassing, nonetheless). Seattle's entire "fanbase" is a collection of insecure groupies who are mostly football neophytes. Your identity flows from belonging to some larger group of people. Sounds kinda like a cult.

That picture actually looks like a mock of Seattle fans. I can say that I have never seen (or even heard of) a Niner fan calling our fan base something as lame as the 12th man.

Was that picture taken in Seattle?

Yeah.
Call us anything you want . . .
Just don't call us late to watch the ring ceremony ;-)

Still talking about the super bowl? In SEA logic land those only count for a month or so right? "Quit living in the past." 2014 is upon us,

They only count for so long, UNTIL they finally get one. They will proceed to bring up their one ring whenever they get in an argument with a fan of a team that doesn't have any, but conveniently resort back to the "living in the past" rebuttal when one of the big boys is around.

It's officially a new league year. Seattle fans can either eat it when we throw 5 in their face, or stop "living in the past" themselves, seeing as how their championship was last year.

Agreed.

It's not just on their board. They do that stuff in person too.

They were doing it when I got here in the 90s. It just became more ghey every year. I see these guys at work the day after and don't have a problem with a guy that loses his voice screaming for his team.

My problem is with the aasholes that claim to be "the 12th man" when they weren't at the game. I have the advantage of saying I have been to more Hags games than most of those wannabe 12th genitals have in their lives just because I want to see the Niners. 12th boner.. my ass.

I'm a season ticket holder and went to the SB this year. I've done my contributions.

Anyway, I personally would like us to to get rid of the 12th man thing, and just call ourselves Twelves or just something entirely different, because I'm tired of hearing this Texas A & M crap all the time. The nickname is not worth it IMO.


The fact is the fanbase itself is not going anywhere, and the culture of being loud at games is already there. The 12th Man is just a name at this point. We could easily just become "Blue Pride" or "Hawks Nest" in 2016 or whatever nickname the media chooses to spout and people who don't like the Seahawks will be JUST as annoyed. Until the Seahawks start losing at home more than they win, and the fans suddenly go pitch quiet. You're not going to stop hearing about the Seahawk fans.

Instead of bashing what you wish your fan base would do (which is get loud at games), why don't you just try to help educate your fellow fans to stop being loud on offense and do their job on defense.

Actually, Blue Pride or Hawks Nest is not nearly as corny and pathetic as "The 12th Man" or, even cornier, "Twelves."

Why would your fans steal the nickname of an area of your stadium? Come up with something original for once...I swear.

Well, the owner has no problem paying off officials (13th man) and Fox Sports, so yeah, he'll shell out some more

Hey now.. I remember getting all 5 like it was last year. Don't be knocking the history bro, I remember the days before Walsh. I say let them have their little Solo-Lombardi and I will take 4 more thank you very much. The ONLY time that the 5 rings seem old to me is when NFLN shows the old replays (which I sit down and watch no matter what I am doing even though I have burned DVDs for every SB win) the 4:3, old graphics and commentary age them, but that stuff is just like yesterday to me. Screw their SB win. They know they have some catching up to do.

Oh the celebration I would have if that was ever discovered as legit.

Honestly, that's my favorite part. The game felt so much more genuine and pure back then.
