Frankly, I was expecting a more pro-Bronco crowd. We have a bigger natural following, plus the PFM factor, I was certainly not expecting it to feel like a road game from a crowd point off view.

Obviously, this team **** the bed but that isnt the point here.
Paul Allen's idea of the 12th man was an absolute stroke of genius.

It literally gives fans the right and obligation to be loud as ****. It's almost a self fulfilling prophecy type thing.

Not to say Seattle fans weren't loud before...they definitely brought it to another level since 12th man.

The difference was clear as night and day...talking to some friends around the country and different places in the world... they said generally they don't notice it but when Manning had the ball, Seahawks fans were loud as ****.

lol you probably were sucked into whatever emotions you had going on.

When Peyton had the ball it was extremely difficult for him to communicate, just as any away game.

Well... with the crowd, tickets were easier and cheaper to get then most years. Then you have employers like Boeing handing out 10k bonuses company wide (largest employer in WA state) just a couple of weeks ago. If Seahawk fans wanted to travel they certainly had the means and ticket availability was there.

I thought the 12th man was invented somewhere down in Texas.

Kinda like teams calling themselves "nation" yet only occupying one city through their existence.

I thought it was loud no matter who had the ball.

Broncos choked as a team. Multiple bad snaps, Manning's arm hit on a pick 6 because Franklin (I believe) was owned, no run game to speak of, Kick returns for TD's INT's for TD's, Fumbles after big plays by WR's, near fumbles after a decent KR, Owned on D on 3rd downs (this and the turnovers really hurt the most), bad coaching choices.

Wasn't the crowd noise, it wasn't just one thing, it was a lot of fail at every level.

It was fail at every level...but the Seahawks crowd was obviously louder.

I think some of you are either biased or not sure what you're seeing. People were disagreeing with me when I called out the Denver crowd during the NE game, because Denver was loud as **** during the SD game the week prior. Even Simms said it was louder the week prior.

But fans on here claimed in the was the same on "their tv."

Not true at all. I have both games recorded. The SD game was rockin.

This **** tonight just cements the fact that Seattle's fan base is much louder and more energetic than Denver's fan base.

Denver fans are really passive. It is what it is.

Just go watch the post game of the AFC championship game and the NFC championship game.

It was like Denver fans were scared to cheer after the game was over.

From what I heard only a small % of the tickets sold to the Super Bowl originated from either of the two teams home states. I've never personally met a Seahawk fan and I live in Virginia. I know a bunch of Bronco fans though. Maybe the Seahawks had a lot of NFL fans jump on the bandwagon because they like the idea of being part of a group - the 12th man.

Its 17.5% of some unknown baseline qty. From there is the sale on the open market and that is where they cleaned up. The hawks fans traveled well.

Hell even the 2nd Quarter in the Redskin game was more embarrassing than this. Grow up and get over it.
We were actually favorites in this game. That game we were massive underdogs. You get the difference yes?

I find it funny that you call out the fans when you don't even go to the games. It's really laughable that you're sitting on your couch complaining about fans attending the games. It's like someone on welfare complaining because they're not getting enough money. If every fan took your lead, the team would be playing in an empty stadium.

I've been to a lot of games and the New England game was probably the loudest I've been to at that stadium. Just because they toned it down on the television doesn't mean it wasn't loud.

Your analogy sucks. It doesn't even make sense. Considering I don't live in Denver, or the state of Colorado, or even near it...no I don't go to the games. How did you compare that to being on welfare and complaining about money?

The San Diego game was louder, and the crowd was 10x more amp'd for that game than the NE game. Phil Simms said the same.

And no, they're not going to "tone it down on the the television." The camera was shaking during the SD game. I guess they brought it some new equipment and rebuilt the foundation for the cameras the next week to prevent that right?

As I said, all you need to do is watch the celebration of the AFC championship game and the NFC championship game... it doesn't take a genius to figure this **** out. But it does take a delusional person to deny it.

This pretty much sums it up

AST RUTHERFORD, NJ - FEBRUARY 2: John Harding of Colorado Springs sits in the concourse during the 3rd quarter. He said the Seattle fans never sit down and he can't see the game. "You know, it's like we didn't show up. It's a bummer. It reminds me of the old Super Bowls. It's depressing. It's really tough." He paid $3,200 for a ticket.

That story does pretty much sum it up though...but you know we got some delusional fans on here thinking it was the same or couldn't notice a difference on "their tv."

I don't get it, the Broncos were turnt all the way up during the Chargers game...then went back into b**** and spoiled mode afterwards. That AFC championship celebration was pathetic.

Broncos crowd was louder in the 4th quarter during the 2011 season with Tim Tebow than any games the past 2 years minus SD game.

I don't know what some of you jokers are reading, but in no way did Tamme insult the Denver fans, unless more was said than what was posted in the first post. What he says is true, Seattle fans clearly outnumbered Broncos fans by a lot and were much louder when the Broncos O was on the field.

Probably the loudest Super Bowl I've ever heard.

Yes. Texas A&M owns the rights to "12th Man". They are ALLOWING Seattle to use that concept. Paul Allen didn't create anything of the sort...

The thing is: Seattle fans *were* extremely loud to start the game, but Manning's antics on the first play suggest he thought he was playing a home game in Denver. Why else would he approach the line multiple times, change the play call, and try to be the field general from the shotgun formation?

What dumbass thought it would be a good idea to line up in shotgun formation for the first play? Why not be a little more cautious to start the game, and call some reasonably safe and high-percentage plays to get things going?

The Seahawks are licensing the right to use the term.

Details: http://www.forbes.com/sites/aliciaje...xposure-rises/

===

"[I]n 2006 Texas A&M filed a trademark lawsuit against the Seattle Seahawks stemming from the NFL team’s use of the “12th Man” phrase. The lawsuit was ultimately settled, the terms of which included the Seahawks paying Texas A&M $100,000 and a subsequent $5,000 annual licensing fee for five years with a right to renew the agreement thereafter. In 2011 the Seahawks renewed the agreement for another five years, taking the deal through 2016.

As the 2016 expiration of the license agreement approaches and the success of the Seahawks continues to rise, reports indicate that the sides have begun renegotiation discussions. However, newly minted issues will likely drive the licensing fee Texas A&M receives under the deal to dollar amounts much greater than $5,000 annually."

===

I imagine that Paul Allen will not have a problem paying for a more expensive licensing arrangement. He probably makes enough money taking a 5-minute dump to pay Texas A&M a king's ransom for the next thousand years.
