Seahawks license plates could be coming in 2014

The NFL has a knack for finding new ways to separate fans from their money.

Washington could soon be making Seahawks-themed license plates available in 2014, according to seattlepi.com.  The effort to authorize the plates currently is working its way through the Legislature.

The Seahawks plate would display the team’s logo, which means the team will get a cut.  Which also means that the cut needs to be a healthy one, or it won’t be happening.

Meanwhile, there’s a joke lurking in there somewhere about Jerramy Stevens making Seahawks license plates if/when he’s ever incarcerated.  Again.

UPDATE: The Seahawks passed along a note saying any funds from the promotion will be donated to charity. “The proceeds from the Seahawks license plate will be allocated to InvestED, a local charity which provides funding that supports the efforts of secondary schools throughout Washington State. The Seahawks will not receive any revenue from the sale of the license plates.”

    Yeah, since Joe Theismann was returning punts.

    But you know, in Seattle, with the time zone thing, they are 30 years behind the East Coast.

  4. The license plate holds up pretty well in the State of Washington but once it travels it folds up pretty quickly.

  5. The license plates were proposed by the Hawks to the Governor, as a way to raise funds for projects to help Washington youth, such as the “A Better Seattle” effort being championed by Pete Carroll.

  6. So your state/city/team is that much cooler because it offered license plates with a team logo before the Seahawks? Who cares if they’re “late to the party”? The point is that some of the proceeds will go to charity.

  7. They should pull the biggest dupe on their fans like the packers- offer certificate “shares” so they can feel like they belong BWahahaha!!

  8. Considering the Seahawks history, I’d imagine no one would have wanted one until maybe now. Then they finish 2nd in the division and win a wild-card playoff game. WOO HOO! Time to get CRAZY!!! Did they forget they’re not even the best team in their Division, much less the Conference or all of the NFL for that matter?

  9. What else would you expect from the most behind the time lamest region of the country..Seattle is behind the times in everything else so why not keep up tradition? Or maybe Seacluck dusters so they can cleqn out there empty trophy case! Bwahahahahah..has anyone noticed how everyone in Seattle is dressed like theyre about to go camping?

  10. These are entirely themes licensed plates I believe, not just a Seahawks symbol on them.

    Not sure all these other places have done that, but again I don’t know.

    Just FYI we have licensed plates with colleges and sports teams already these are exclusive for the Seahawks, not just a symbol or color coordinated.

  12. Tate still says he caught the ball. Sports science said that if that was a catch, every tackle could be considered an interception.
