    I could give two shits either way.
    I would like to see hawks win for the fans and community in general.
    Cash bets, i would take broncos.

    I have some friends that have worked on their beer bellys and bad hygiene for many years now, and to see seattle win, they could finally justify their couch potato status and the reasons they never get laid.

    I've lived in the Seattle area now for almost 30 years and remember all too well the Seahawks' only other SB appearance in 2006 where we were victimized by a blown call that negated what would have been a go-ahead touchdown. The level of energy and pride today dwarfs the support the team had back then.

    Yet Seattle is a town with a long history of frustration with it's sport teams. With only a handful of stellar seasons in the past couple of decades, the Ms and the Seahawks have been a predictable disappointment. The last time a men's pro sports team won a national title was the Sonics back during the Nixon administration. Even the Huskies' glory days seem to have been in the James years back in the 1990s.

    IMHO, this town has become so used to having the winning rug yanked out from under it that only now are we even close to having a clue how to support our teams.

    An article in Sports Illustrated yesterday seems to put it's finger right on how that mood has changed here in the final days leading up to Super Bowl Sunday: http://mmqb.si.com/2014/01/24/seattle-seahawks-super-bowl-xlviii-fan-essay/

    All the years of male pro sports and 1 championship for the Sonics. Bring in a female pro sport ( hoops) and they win 2 titles in 10 years.

    :p:rolleyes::D

    Oh man! I don't know if anyone here remembers the Thursday following the 2006 SB, but on 'Mike and Mike' on ESPN @ 6:45 am, they made an official announcement that read something like: Due to legal reasons, encouraged by the National Football League, we are no longer allowed to discuss the penalty calls on this past weekends Super Bowl."

    The went right to commercial, and when they came back, they were right on talking about tomorrow's show, and the NBA.

    Fast forward 3 and a half years, and Mike Ditka is on there ripping, absolutely ripping the refs on the bad calls in that SB. It was right durring the time when that NBA official was outsted for calling games to shave points. That's what the discussion was about with Ditka, and he saw it as an opportunity to call out the NFL for the 2006 SB.

    That one call Kent (if we are thinking of the same one) was when Stevens caught that pass and took it to the 1 and a half yard line... ?

    That flag was thrown after the play was over, COMPLETELY over, and the team was jogging down the field to huddle.

    The number of the player they called for holding... wasn't even on the field!

    Naw... there's no corruption in the NFL...:rolleyes:

    That's the one. I don't know about corruption and won't comment on that, but the guy who threw the flag recently retired and was quoted in The Times as having regretted his call for years afterward.

    We was robbed.

    Well just for the "record", my corruption comment was made in jest.

    Also, why would a ref feel that bad about one particular wrong call, that many years later... I'm "guessing" that he, they, something was going on that we'll never know about. I truly believe that, and I'm not a die hard Hawks fan either. Even the east coast talk radio shows hammered on about it.

    Forget about the Hawks, that game was obvious to even the Steeler fans, something wasn't "normal".

    I absolutely LOVE Super Bowl Sunday - it's just about my favorite day of the year! I only wish Super Bowl Sunday happened every weekend. I get to steelhead fish all day and have my pick of runs while everyone else is watching TV! My prediction is that one team will win and I'll be clearing ice from my guides when it happens!

    Tavaris Jackson outplays Peyton Manning after Russell Wilson leaves game early due to concussion, TJ wins MVP after throwing for 345 yards and four touchdowns. Sea 38 Den 27. Didn't see that one coming did ya? ;) Lots of times it is someone you never accounted for that comes up big in games like these.

    The 2006 SB was a self fulfilling prophecy. For 2 weeks before the game the media could only talk about how great it would be if Jerome Bettis-playing in his last game in his home town and in a Super Bowl-could walk away a winner. The refs made sure it happened. After that play I knew the fix was in, turned off the TV and went to my shop. I haven't watched a full SB since and this year will be no different. As mentioned, this game is all about Peyton's 'legacy' and I expect a similar result.

    In the opening telecast of the following season John Madden didn't mince words in pointing out that Seattle was robbed by less than stellar officiating.

    The nuts and bolts of next week's game seem to be that Denver scores lots of points and Seattle very few. Manning more than any other quarterback knows how to torch defenses no matter what their reputation is. I see the wily, cagey veteran outsmarting the mouthy young punks in the end with no doubt a little help from the refs. My heart is with Seattle, my money on Denver.

    I know most dont agree with this but I can not stand to watch manning run an offense. He is annoying at best but really I think he is kinda over rated. I know he is a good pocket passer but really he has not had very good post season success. Now before the bronco fans jump on my. Yes I know seattle does not have a SB win (until sunday). Hawks Defense is going to have a field day on sunday. I predict the LOB will have 4 picks. Final score will be 24-10 Seahawks. GO HAWKS

    I'm mostly with you Ive. I haven't really cared to watch a superbowl since that game. I usually go fishing and have just about anywhere I go devoid of human life. It was disappointing to see how easily it could be rigged, so I haven't watched(until this year), and only because the Hawks made it there again.

    I also predict the first quarter is not going to go well for the hawks defense. I think the NFL and the refs are already chatting about throwing penalty flags for un sportsman like conduct right away to get a hold of all the after play bull-shit that Seattle's defense seems to think they can get away with! The last game was horrible with after play jabbering and following offensive players back to the line screaming at them. I couldn't believe more flags were not thrown.

    This is not a west coast game watched by the few - The whole nation will be watching and I really don't think the refs are going to let Seattle's defense make a mockery out of the game and this time it won't be the refs fault! I predict 3 un-sportsman like conduct calls against Seattle the first quarter which will allow Denver to score. I hope o'l Pete is already preparing the defense for this but he hasn't all year so we will see.

    I hope it's a good game and I hope "SEATTLE" wins!
