Belittle the Seattle 12th Man all you want, but the highly enthusiastic #GoHawks fan influence on games at home and away has been noticed by opponents and media pundits.

And it helps when you refuse to sell tickets to buyers outside the Pacific Northwest states.

The organization is just not ready for a 13th man supporting another team in their stadium.

Seattle will host the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game on Sunday. Apparently, the Seahawks are willing to do whatever it takes to solidify home-field advantage.

According to SFGate.com, the Seahawks are limiting ticket sales to just six states and the Canadian provinces for the upcoming playoff game. Only credit cards with addresses from Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii will be allowed to buy tickets for the game at CenturyLink Field.

My hometown Blues hockey team tried a limitation scheme to keep the Blackhawk fans from swarming The Scottrade Center. Didn't work, they just bought the tickets off Stubhub and came in droves anyways.

I'm from a generation where sportsmanship was a requisite part of sports. Making noise just for the purpose of making it impossible for the opponents to even hear their snap count is BS at any stadium (not just Seattle though they seem to promote it more than most others). I object to defensive players very aggressively going for the strip more than making a tackle. I object to fans screaming and waving noodles when opponents are shooting free throws. Just to name a few.

Sportsmanship seems to be passé, that's sad to me. I am an old fuddy duddy, oh well...

With the price of tickets they charge nowadays they are entitled to do what they want.

And when defenders (especially the DBs) "tackle", more often than not they don't really tackle; they just launch themselves into the ball carrier like a missile, hoping to knock him down. It's not a "tackle" in the traditional sense since there's no wrapping up using the arms and pulling them down.

I think that style of tackling and hitting is a major contributor to the growing concussion problem in the NFL.

They can strip naked and streak on the field?

Yes, that's an extreme example, but when you buy a ticket you are agreeing to a contract (read the back of the ticket) which includes guidelines about acceptable behavior in the stadium. Sure, no team is going to discourage people from screaming when the other team has the ball to disrupt their offense, but the point remains that "I bought a ticket" does not equal "I have the right to do whatever I want in the stadium," whether you paid $5 or $500 for the ticket.

We disagree, but clearly I'm in the minority. What does sportsmanship mean these days, nothing? What does setting an example mean these days? Permeates everything these days, not just sports. Again, I'm a fuddy duddy in this regard...I know it.

No you are right. My comment was meant to be sarcastic.

Yes, utube is full of examples of folks violating acceptable behavior contracts.

No need to glorify their stupidity here. It does make one think, am I willing to pay to sit next to some jerk? I'm glad the stadiums, at least in this area, are doing better at taming down unacceptable behavior.

Probably won't get a chance to find out if we are paired up against our kryptonite, the LA Kings in the first round..

OK, my laziness got out of hand. This is The Jet Song. Patriot fans don't look kindly on the Jets, but this is hard to beat.

The character singing is "Riff" and it's not an easy song to sing.
