TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE: NFL REF ADMITS HE SCREWED SEATTLE IN SUPER BOWL

August 8, 2010

BILL LEAVY: STAND-UP GUY OR INCOMPETENT STOOGE?

NFL referee Bill Leavy didn’t even have to be asked. In the Seattle area to ref a Seahawks practice, Leavy admitted that he personally cost the team the Super Bowl in 2006.

Leavy told the media that he “kicked” a couple late calls in the Seahawks 21-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and “impacted” the game in Super Bowl XL. Leavy even said he’s “lost sleep” and “will go to my grave” with regrets over his blown calls.

Naturally, Leavy’s admission is big news in Seattle where quarterback Matt Hasselbeck called Leavy a “stand-up guy.”

Golden Tate's Donut Crimes Becomes Obvious Ad Opportunity

Top Pot donuts in Seattle has capitalized on the Golden Tate maple bar caper with a new ad.

911 AUDIO RELEASED ON GOLDEN TATE DONUT CAPER

June 10, 2010

Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver Golden Tate is never going to live this down. This week, it was big news in Seattle after Tate became the first player in NFL history to have the cops called on him for “being retarded.”

Tate has an apartment over the Top Pot Donuts shop in Bellevue, Washington. Apparently, enticed by the smell of freshly-baked donuts, Tate and a friend walked in through the back door of the shop and helped themselves to some hot-out-of-the-oven maple bars. An enraged baker phoned the police.

Now, the hilarious audio from the 9-1-1 call has been released.

GOOD NEWS: LENDALE WHITE IS OFF TEQUILA, BAD NEWS: LENDALE WHITE IS ON DRUGS

May 29, 2010

MUCH LIKE HIS TREATMENT OF THE “TERRIBLE TOWEL,” LENDALE WHITE HAS BEEN DICARDED

The Seattle Seahawks waived running back LenDale White Friday, just five weeks after acquiring him from the Tennessee Titans.

White had lost 45 pounds since last season via the No Tequila Diet. However, several news sources are reporting that White recently flunked an NFL drug test. White’s work ethic with the Seahawks was also in question.

PAUL ALLEN PICKS COLLEGE CHESS BUDDY OVER MIKE HOLMGREN TO RUN SEAHAWKS

December 21, 2009

MIKE HOLMGREN

Mike Holmgren is a beloved figure in Seattle. Holmgren led the Seattle Seahawks to Super Bowl XL and served as coach of the team from 1999-2008. He was also the team’s GM for part of that term.

Holmgren left the Seattle organization following last season. At the time, it seemed like a voluntary departure. Holmgren announced he was leaving a year ahead of time and even put his replacement, Jim Mora Jr., on the Seahawks staff. However, the Seahawks recently fired general manager Tim Ruskell. With Holmgren already announcing he was returning to the NFL in 2010, returning to Seattle seemed like a natural fit. Holmgren has professed his love for the Seattle area and fans on numerous occassions. In a live tv poll last week, a staggering 95% of Seahawk fans voted Holmgren as their choice as the new Seattle GM. Fans were literally clammering for a Holmgren return flooding local talk radio with calls and posting comments on the Seattle Times website. Unfortunately, a Holmgren/Seattle reunion was not to be.

Seahawks owner Paul Allen, responding to a near revolution by fans, released a statement yesterday. Holmgren will NOT be returning to the Seahawks. The statement even contained a quote from Holmgren thanking Allen.

Seattle fans aren’t buying a syllable of it. Wait until they find out the details of why Allen passed on Holmgren. They’re going to hit the roof! Profootballtalk.com posted a stinging rebuke of Allen on their website today. PFT goes into some of the details behind Allen’s decision not to bring Holmgren back. It turns out that Allen sided with his college chess buddy, a guy named Bert Kolde, as the person who’s going to be running the Seahawks over Holmgren. Business Week described Kolde as Allen’s “right-hand man.” Kolde has no background in football but has been mentioned prominently on several chess blogs.

Holmgren is now likely to end up with the Cleveland Browns because 1. Allen preferred his old chess buddy to make football decisions rather than Holmgren and 2. Allen (one of the world’s richest men) actually offered less money than Cleveland.

MATT HASSELBECK TO FANTASY FOOTBALL OWNERS: “BENCH ME”

MATT HASSELBECK

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck says he has some advice for fantasy football owners who might “own” him in their leagues.

“Bench me,” Hasselbeck said Monday as he literally apologized for his season to date. Seattle is 0-2 on the year and Hasselbeck is the lowest rated quarterback in the NFC. The Pro Bowl qb has had six receivers injured this season.
