    Report: Seahawks Won't Sell Playoff Tix to Anyone in CA



    That's one way to preserve the 12th man advantage ....

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...7173--nfl.html

    Seattle Seahawks fans are proud of their "12th Man" legacy. The team even retired No. 12 for the fans.

    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.

    Yes, California is among the states excluded from the list.

    I wouldn't have thought a franchise would be allowed to have that kind of restriction.

    Neither did I.

    However, they are a privately owned business. They can deny service to anyone they choose I suppose.

    I will say that decisions like this could impact them in the future should the Seahawks return to suckitude and they can't sell tickets...

    If I was a dude in WA and didn't give two shits about the game, I'd buy up as many tix I can and specifically market to those out of state fans. That would be a nice pay day.

    I have never heard of any laws protecting you from being discriminated against because of your zip code. Someone will end up suing and then we'll find out 3 years from now. Maybe that guys who sued because the Steelers weren't in the playoffs will do it.

    If true then I'm changing my mind. I was rooting for Seattle but now I hope San Fran kicks the ever-living crap out if them - if true of course.

    Well, there is a certain number of tickets given to SF to sell to their fans, so there will be at least SOME San Fran fans there.

    But wow, this is just hilarious. I had been saying Seattle was the least douchey team in the playoffs, but this changes it.

    Go....2014 NFL season?
