Mariners’ swoon, NFL bad behavior: Seattle Times readers sound off

Mariners Valiant effort, but not enough Being close only counts in horseshoes. It is a pity because the Seattle Mariner late-season run for the playoffs was a valiant, but courageous attempt that came up short. But, this season produced a winning team for the first time in five years, and the fans showed their support by flocking through…

Mariners’ Fernando Rodney, Seahawks’ Percy Harvin: Times readers sound off

Mariners Contract extension was premature The Mariners extended the contract of general manager Jack Zduriencik in August based on the positive performance of the team. The team and fans depended on him to make the right moves around the trade deadline. He acquired Kendrys Morales, Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia, but their offensive numbers have been dismal. Zduriencik failed…

NFL bad behavior, from Adrian Peterson to Roger Goodell: Times readers sound off

NFL controvery Don’t accept this Neanderthal behavior Nobody can be so naive as to believe that the recent rash of abusive behavior in the NFL is a recent phenomenon. It’s way past the time that this Neanderthal behavior can be passed off as “boys will be boys.” We can’t allow a creeping acceptance of what should be unacceptable. Nothing…

Seahawks dominance, 49ers drama: Times readers sound off

Seahawks Physical dominance is only one factor After that great opening salvo by the Seahawks in Thursday’s 2014 curtain raiser, who’s left in Seattle who doesn’t think we’ll repeat as Super Bowl champions? Along the entire range of defining attributes, from character to physical dominance, the Hawks seem to have it all. Alas, many a great team, including the…

Marshawn Lynch, Ray Rice: Seattle Times sports readers sound off

Seahawks Pay cut if Hawks lost? If the Seahawks had laid a giant egg in the Super Bowl, would Marshawn Lynch have approached coach Pete Carrol and general manager John Schneider and offered to take a pay cut? — Robert Van den Akker, Monroe Beastly new class requirement Seahawk holdout Marshawn Lynch should be hauled back into class and required to write…

Marshawn Lynch, Fernando Rodney, Cyler Miles: Seattle Times readers sound off

7-27-14

Seahawks Little sympathy for Lynch holdout Shame on the Seahawks for putting a pistol to Marshawn Lynch’s head and forcing him to sign that $31 million contract. By pulling him out of Buffalo’s scrap heap, glossing over his foibles and allowing him to practice when he chooses, he now feels unappreciated, according to his new mouthpiece, Michael Robinson. So…

World Cup bites, Mariners rebirth: Seattle Times sports readers sound off

World Cup Bite first, then cloud issue Luis Suarez, the “Mad Biter” from Uruguay, first states that he “deeply regrets what occurred,” (“Suarez apologizes for biting Italian defender Chiellini,” July 1) as if it were something that somehow just happened. Later he says, “my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision he…

Mariners replays, Seahawks’ White House visit: Times readers sound off

Mariners Baseball’s death by 1,000 reviews Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon’s feelings about instant review were best summed up recently in one sentence: “I don’t know when to celebrate.” Look at last week’s close play against Houston where Michael Saunders reached first base just ahead of the pitcher, the pivotal play of the game. The umpire signaled safe. The crowd…
