The 12th Man and Social Media

Sam Bradford Out For Season

+

The Rams QB has apparently tore his ACL in the waning moments of his team's 30-15 loss to the Carolina Panthers, which would effectively end his season. Coach Jeff FIsher hasn't exactly confirmed this news, though, but hasn't denied it, either. This is significant news for the Seahawks, who will be going down to St. Louis for their next game on Monday Night Football, on October 28th. Right now, Kellen Clemens is the only other QB on the Rams roster.

Speaking of $700 Million.....

+

The San Diego Chargers are now asking for that much money from public funding to go towards a brand-new stadium. that's not the cost of the entire project; the Chargers are will to put in $100 million (and the league might also chip in another $200 million, like they did for the new Niner stadium) towards an estimated BILLION-DOLLAR stadium deal. What are they building these new stadiums with, to make them so expensive? Gold-plated seats? Diamond-encrusted toilets? It looks like that $700 million figure the Rams threw out in their lease negotiations wasn't so ridiculous, after all.....

St. Louis Rejects Rams' $700 Million Upgrade of Ed Jones Dome

11

The Rams have a unique lease with St. Louis, and one of the stipulations of said lease is that if the stadium where the Rams are playing (the aforementioned Ed Jones Dome) is not considered a "1st Tier Venue" -- which essentially means being just as good, or better, then the Top 8 stadiums in the NFL -- the lease can be broken in 2015. There are revenue projections that the Rams can use to determine what a Top 8 stadium looks like, but what the stipulation really means is that if the Rams organization and the city of St. Louis can't come to an agreement on either an upgrade to the current dome or the building of a new stadium in the next year-and-a-half, the Rams would be free to relocate to another city.....say, Los Angeles. The city and the Rams will next try to negotiate a compromise deal, but the Rams do retain the right to refuse and, ultimately, leave town (if they so choose). There's probably a lot of time left before a final decision will be made.

My New Seahawks Fan Video

1

This is just a little thing I put together on Windows Movie Maker (which sucks, but that isn't the point). It's only June and there isn't much going on right now, but I'm confident about how good this team is, and this video is an (amateur) expression of that belief.

OMG! Tim Montemayor says Seattle is going to get an expansion team!

Why isn't this totally-accurate news on the SR front page yet? Surely this tweet -- a form of communication so trustworthy it's practically signed by a notary public -- has been confirmed by all the leading NBA reporters by now! Nuts to that! I'm not even going to wait for conformation; that's how solid the great TIM MONTEMAYOR'S word is! I'm going to mail Chris Hansen enough money to buy season tickets right this very second!!!

Is David Stern a corrupt asshole?

Hansen Still Trying To Buy Kings

2

Even if NBA owners vote against relocating the Kings to Seattle, Chris Hansen is still pursuing the sale of the team. Apparently, he and the Maloofs are now considering an idea where Hansen still buys the team but keeps the Kings in Sacramento for at least a year. The plan is that, if the new Sacramento arena is not on-schedule or if Kings attendance does not increase, Hansen (as the new Kings owner) will re-apply for relocation to Seattle next year. The article doesn't speculate about what would happen if Hansen buys the Kings but the NBA continues to deny relocation, however. It appears that Hansen & Co. are willing to take a page out of the Clay Bennett handbook in order to purchase an NBA franchise, and the league might consider, once again, using an out-of-town owner as leverage to spur arena construction. Who knows how many tricks Chris has up his sleeve.....

I Believe In Russell Wilson

The Seahawks are probably not going to win the Super Bowl this year. Not that this team is inherently flawed in some way or just irrevocably unlucky, but that 12 teams make the playoffs every year...

So, the Jets think they can trade away Mark Sanchez...

6

Not that anyone really wants to pay over $8 million dollars (just for next season alone!) for a QB that has committed 50 turnovers in his last 30 games, but the New York Jets are looking to trade Mark Sanchez this offseason, and then sign a presumably-released Michael Vick (/facepalm). Would Sanchez's old college coach Pete Carroll be interested in trading for him? Absolutely not...unless the Jets were to package a draft pick with Sanchez to get him out of town; FYI, Sanchez's salary is NOT guaranteed beyond the 2013 season, and, of course, the Jets will be on the hook for the cap hit stemming from his signing bonus. Another FYI: There will be no more salary cap "rollovers" after next season, which means no leftover cash under the 2013 salary cap will NOT roll over to 2014. We'd still need to send something to the Jets to complete any such trade, and there are two Seahawks I have in mind that might make the trade work for both sides: 1.) Matt Flynn. Even if the Jets sign Vick, he has become notoriously injury-prone, and since they are all-but certain to get rid of Tim Tebow as well, it all boils down to how much confidence they have in Greg McElroy (and who knows if a new coach and/or a new GM will even want to keep him). If the Jets are very weary of pointless turnovers, Flynn would be a good get. 2.) Sidney Rice. Nothing against our best receiver, but he's both expensive and injury-prone, and yet still productive enough to get a pretty high draft pick out of the Jets. Keep in mind that there are two stellar receivers in free agency this year -- Mike Wallace and Dwayne Bowe -- not to mention any number of stellar receivers coming out of college that the Seahawks might want to use a high draft pick on. This team has done an exceptional job of turning rookies and 2nd-year players into better-than-average starters, and might want to continue the youth movement here. Other than the defensive line and maybe tight end, there aren't any other positions that we haven't already addressed in the draft the last 3 years. (And if we do make this move, we'd certainly trade Flynn in a separate trade.) I'm confident enough in Russell Wilson that I'd tolerate Sanchez for just one year as a backup, and if we're lucky he'll only get a few garbage-time snaps like Flynn this year.
