Reader Roundtable: Seahawks’ Super Bowl win and celebration

Fourth Avenue is jammed just south of Yesler Way as fans await the Super Bowl champions parade to CenturyLink Field. (ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES).

I’ve received piles of letters and emails the past couple weeks leading up to, during and after the Seahawks Super Bowl win. Far more than for any other topic. The majority of responses I’ve sent on to sports editor Don Shelton because they addressed the team’s performance on the field, which is better left to the Sports section. But there are a number of topics that the Opinion section has addressed, such as Richard Sherman’s rant, the media’s reaction and the Super Bowl parade and its costs. Below are several readers’ responses to the issues that fall under the purview of Opinion:

Thanks for remembering Storm championships

Not to take anything away from the Seahawks’ fantastic Super Bowl win, but I’m glad The Times’ editorial board at least acknowledged the Seattle Storm [“Seahawks rule the NFL roost,” Opinion, Feb. 5]

I personally consider the Storm a major professional team, and the fact the team brought home championships in 2004 and 2010 puts them as the best of the WNBA in those two seasons. That is worthy of mention on any list of Seattle champions. There aren’t many major professional team sports opportunities for women in the area, even with the recent addition of the Seattle Reign soccer team.
