BuFu
Our media loves nothing more than to tear down champions. Because too many of us like to see the mighty fall. Probably because most people haven't accomplished much that they are proud of and it makes them feel better about themselves to see other people screw up.

If you look at USC and all the bad press they have gotten...I really think that most big NCAA programs have problems like that, but most don't get uncovered because they aren't in the midst of a championship dynasty. I bet that if Texas keeps winning, there will be plenty of scandals bantered around in the press.

Meh... QB getting into an accident doesn't say much about his character. Not wearing a helmet obviously wasn't a good idea, but that was a fairly innocuous mistake. The fine for not being liscensed in PA...well that's still not exactly a severe allegation.

A Rookie WR screwing up is a bit more troublesome, but the kid hasn't even played in a game yet, so I think we're fine with regards to our reputation. Last year's team was impecciable in this regard, and most of that team is still intact.

Worry not!

I couldn't agree with you more. When you're at the top, you have a bullseye on your back and no matter how insignificant or petty a specific instance or behavior is, here comes the flood light and the negative fanfare right along with it.

Still feels damned good to be fans of the World Champs, doesn't it?

So all we have to do is change our uni color huh?

It'll happen. I will see a Seahawk wearing a SB ring before I die. I've got faith.

I agree somewhat....Yeah when you pick up a free agent!!! Then you might see him wearing the ring he got with another team.
Seriously I bet we get another first!

Well Franco played for you guys for a year or two, I am pretty sure he probably wore his ring while he was a Seahawk. Sorry I couldn't resist.
