Seahawks announce Russell Wilsonís getting divorced

For all the coverage the NFL receives, one of the realities of the sport is that we truly don’t know the individuals participating in front of us.

And many times, they prove to be as human as the rest of us.

The Seahawks released a statement today saying that quarterback Russell Wilson was getting divorced.

“I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” it read. “Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.”

Given Wilson’s popularity, word would have eventually gotten out, via the avenues that pursue celebrity relationships. Announcing it via the team seems an unusual step, since many other players get divorced every year.

Otherwise, we’ll respect Wilson’s wishes, which we’d have done if he hadn’t announced it.

I am sad - I like the guy, or at least thought I did. Hope he isn’t just being a $hit due to his new found success.

Actually his motto is my motto now that I’m starting a new business “Why not us?”

Truly sad. Both are beautiful people. Hope they stay friends. Just wondering what the real cause is.

“Stay friends?”....I always think if you can do that you should stay married.

"Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers"

Let's leave God out of this ungodly decision.

I’ve read about lots of people who got divorced but still remained friends. Sometimes things just don’t click when married.

I just wanted an excuse to post this gem from the day RW was drafted:

No, she doesn't look crazy in the least.

That would be me. Unfortunately we have two children who don't understand. :(
