    Allen passed away Monday afternoon in Seattle at 65 years old, Vulcan said. His sister, Jody, said he was "a remarkable individual on every level." "While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much-loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend. Paul's family and friends were blessed to experience his wit, warmth, his generosity and deep concern," she said in a statement. "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends. At this time of loss and grief for us – and so many others – we...

    Seahawks owner hedging his bets like all corporate billionaires. But then you look at the state of Washington and see how whacko they've become with their homeless problem and the eat-the-rich solutions you can see why he wants the GOP to keep congress. Backlash to ensue. His response should be like Trumps: Double the donation.

    Billionaire Seahawks owner and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen this year has made his largest-ever foray into congressional politics, donating $100,000 to a group aiming to keep Republicans in control of the U.S. House of Representatives. The June 14 donation, disclosed in mid-July, went to Protect the House, a committee headed by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. It’s the biggest check Allen has ever sent to a federal political candidate or committee, according to a review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

    Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trail Blazers owner, Paul Allen, is pushing a Washington State gun control initiative in response to the May 18 Santa Fe High School shooting. The initiative, No. 1639, is called “Safe Schools, Safe Communities,” and it expands the gun controls placed on law-abiding citizens via the universal background check initiative that passed in 2014. Allen tweeted: Paul Allen ✔ @PaulGAllen 18h My statement on a gun safety initiative in my home state of Washington: Initiative 1639 is a reasonable and necessary measure that will improve the safety of our schools and our communities, which is why...

    Former 49ers quarterback remains unsigned after high-profile protestThe Seattle Seahawks reportedly postponed a tryout with free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he wouldn’t rule out kneeling during the national anthem. The Seahawks organization is still considering holding a workout with Kaepernick, who sat out the 2017 NFL season without a contract following a season in which he emerged as the leader of the player take-a-knee activism. After making arrangements for the tryout two weeks ago, “the trip was unexpectedly scuttled over the Seahawks’ last-minute stipulation regarding Kaepernick’s anthem stance,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, citing a source. “The source said the...

    Defensive end accused of injuring elderly paraplegic at Super Bowl LIAllegations of racism have erupted over the indictment Friday of NFL star Michael Bennett, even though he’s being prosecuted by a liberal, Soros-backed district attorney for a crime against a black victim. Progressive activists and commentators weighed in after the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end was indicted by a grand jury on a felony count of injuring a 66-year-old disabled black woman last year at Super Bowl LI, calling the charge “bogus,” “BS,” and a “set up.” Columnist Shaun King said Mr. Bennett was charged because he “touched a woman’s...

    SEATTLE – No, Michael Bennett wasn’t kidding about his book. Bennett, the Seattle Seahawks Pro Bowl defensive end, has been talking for months about a book he’s been writing called “Things That Make White People Uncomfortable.” The book now has a release date. According the Haymarket Books, the publisher, it will be available in hardback on April 3 and as an e-book on April 25.

    If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit. The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with...

    How can the same problems repeatedly doom one team? How can mental mistakes so consistently outshine physical talent? This season didn’t get away from the Seahawks — the Seahawks pushed it away. This wasn’t about injuries. The Seahawks might have lost some premier players, but that’s not why their season ended before the New Year. It wasn’t about bad breaks, either. As far as favorable bounces go, the football gods weren’t particularly unjust to Seattle this season. No, the Seahawks missing their first postseason since 2011 is primarily due to this: underachievement. They aren’t going to the playoffs because, quite...

    The Seahawks had several chances late in Sunday's game to beat the Jaguars in Jacksonville but their fate was sealed after Russell Wilson failed to convert on fourth down with just over two minutes to go. And that's when things got interesting. With Seattle out of timeouts and 54 seconds remaining, Jacksonville lined up in the victory formation to seal their 30-24 lead. On the play, defensive lineman Michael Bennett was rightly penalized for unnecessary roughness and teammate Sheldon Richardson was ejected for starting a brawl. Not to be outdone, a snap later, defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was ejected for...

    The NFL has taken a beating over players kneeling during the national anthem, but a closer examination shows that the protests are less a story of the league as a whole and more a tale of two liberal cities: San Francisco and Seattle. On any given Sunday, the vast majority of those refusing to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” play for the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, teams nestled in famously left-wing locales and led by owners who sought to keep Donald Trump out of the White House. That doesn’t include blips like Sept. 25, which saw nearly 200...

    48hrs After Black Players Break White QB's Back For Standing For Anthem, Chiefs Star Sends Sick Message To Furious Fans ...... Protests within the NFL have taken a nasty racist turn over the past several weeks, after Seahawks player Michael Bennett started a sick new trend where black players are now rendering black power salutes anytime they sack a white player on the field. The NFL has an even bigger scandal brewing however, after white Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had his back broken over the weekend during a tackle, where some sports commentators are speculating that Carr’s all-black offensive line...

    The protest of the national anthem by NFL players took on added intensity last month when Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was briefly detained outside a Las Vegas casino. The player was high critical of how he was treated, blasting across social media that he was targeted “simply being a black man” and the officers used excessive force that was “unbearable.” …this coming from a 6′ 4″ 274 lb. professional football player. Bennett’s inflammatory words included the claim that an officer threatened to “blow my f**king head off.” But, as is often the case of late when it comes...

    The NFL would prefer the players’ now-ubiquitous protests take a back seat to the action this season, but it looks like the league won’t get its wish. If anything, the players seem ready to take their social critique beyond sitting during the national anthem. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who is among the ranks of NFL players to sit during the anthem, celebrated a sack Sunday afternoon with a single raised fist. Bennett was the first Seattle player announced during pregame introductions before the home opener against the 49ers and ****received one of the loudest ovations.**** (NFL fans are becoming...

    Michael Bennett is calling on all NFL players — black and white — to participate in the national anthem protests. In the Seahawks' first preseason game on Sunday, the defensive end sat for the anthem, continuing the movement started by quarterback Colin Kaepernick. However, Bennett said just a few players protesting the anthem isn't enough.

How come you guys aren’t talking to them? How come there’s not a discussion about them?

The veteran head coach told reporters Friday that, although Seattle won't be signing Kaepernick right now, the team is well aware of what he's capable of doing on the field.

    After a year away from football, running back Marshawn Lynch is coming out of retirement to play for the Oakland Raiders. Because there were years remaining on the contract extension Lynch signed with Seattle two years ago, the Seahawks still controlled Lynch’s rights, so to facilitate Lynch returning to play with his hometown team, the Raiders and Seahawks will swap picks in the 2018 draft, the Raiders announced. The Raiders will receive Lynch and a sixth-round draft choice in 2018 in exchange for Oakland’s fifth-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. Lynch, who the Seahawks acquired in a trade with...

Basically, I think that when you think about all the negativity that's happened within a 10-day period, or however many days it's been, it's already too much. It's already crazy, it's already affecting people's hearts and souls and lives in such a negative way, in my opinion.

    Leading MVP candidate Matt Ryan riddled Seattle's secondary for 338 yards and three touchdowns, leading the Atlanta Falcons to a convincing 36-20 victory over the Seahawks in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Here's what we learned in Saturday's game: After both teams traded clinical opening-drive touchdowns that spilled over to the second quarter, a holding penalty on special teamer Kevin Pierre-Louis swung the game in Atlanta's favor. Devin Hester's 80-yard punt return would have set the Seahawks up at the seven-yard line with a chance to take a commanding 17-7 lead. Instead, Seattle lost 84 yards of field position,...
