Pom Pom Petey may come across as a swell guy, but he is low class all the way.
Carroll has been the media's darling. However, the continuous poor individual (and team) behavior shows that he actually has little or no control as a coach. Week by week, the truth slowly erodes the golden boy perception of him, based on how his team acts.

Yes, unfortunately.

Seahawks is one of many teams who have ties to the Packer GMs, coaching. John Schneider is the GM, knowing his background, I wonder what he things of all this. I was always hoping he would come back to GB to replace Ted T.

Carroll looked shell shocked on the sideline near the end of the clip.

That statement really struck a cord with me. I loved the NBA of the 70's-80's but lost interest by mid 90's, there were too many talented players that simply weren't good ambassadors to the sport or civility.

Mid 90's the Sonics two big players were Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, neither one admirable off the court.

Great PR at a great time for the NFL.

This commissioner is the worst I've ever seen.

All this on film, just like the Gronk incident ... wanton violence ... no suspensions in the latest incident and 1 measly game for Gronk.

Yet, with no real evidence and against the recommendation of the lead investigator Ezekiel Elliott gets 6 games, costs Dallas a playoff chance.

Just a matter of time until this gets out of hand worse and fans are hurt. Again, this type of NFL is on Goodell !!!!!

Seattle looked undisciplined & petty. I think Pete Carroll has a basically laid-back, (aspires to be liked by every player) approach that fails him in these volatile situations. And on a general note, I think Goodell is losing professional control over the (k)Neeling Felons League. His cowardly, capitulation to $ocial-justice extortion.. seemingly endorsing professional insubordination.
Understood, ugly game-endings aren't unprecedented, but I honestly think the NFL is creeping toward becoming (culturally) the NBA. League needs some emergency, law & order type leadership right now.. Carroll & Goodell don't have that personality type.
I agree with your acronyms but disagree with the fight. I love that stuff and wish they showed more.

Usually the media pulls away and doesn't air the fights but I laughed my face off during the last Bronco Raider game when the announcer yelled, LOOK! WE GOT A FIGHT!

Hard to have an end of game kneel down fiasco when you get beat down. Thanks, Rams.

This time they fought with each other.
Not a good sign when your 2 defensive leaders are bickering and calling out a "jealous teammate" on Twitter. The jealous teammate part makes me wonder if there's a lot more going on.

There is evidence that this team is falling apart. Yes, the passion is still there, but the Hawks behavior shows an ugly side of the franchise. Worst Pete Carroll loss in Seattle. To come into the most important game of the season and stink it up that bad is reprehensible. And then to lose composure for the 2nd week in a row? Time to break it up and start over?
