San Francisco Chronicle reader letter complains Seahawks fans too loud
Two readers complained in a Monday letter to the San Francisco Chronicle that the sound-record-breaking cheering of Seahawks fans on Sunday was unsportsmanlike.
Judy Spelman and Rich Schiller of Point Reyes Station wrote:
Was anyone else appalled by the unsportsmanlike conduct of the Seattle Seahawks and their fans…?
They go on to suggest that the NFL should implement a rule punishing a team if the fans get too loud.
…should this rule be violated in more than three games, no home games will be played at the offending field for the rest of the season, including playoff games.
Here is how I imagine Schiller’s reaction when the Seahawks trounced the 49ers in a 29-3 win Sunday at CenturyLink Field.
Update 12:11 p.m.
The Chronicle is running comments from Seattle fans to the original letter in its Opinion Shop blog.
