all who bought a ticket,The great thing about spectator sports is that exactly everyone who enjoys them knows better than the people hired to do them. At the moment around Seattle,womens Ted Ginn Jr Jersey, a T-shirt or a cable-TV subscription have a plan for Seahawks renewal that’s better than what coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider are concocting.
