Seahawks license plates could be coming in 2014

images

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.”

    Welcome to the 2000s. We’ve had Ravens, Caps and Cal Ripken Os tags here in Maryland for years now.

    Must be the offseason!

    I’m a Seahawks fan and I’m still not sure why this is PFT-worthy.

    i thought every team/state had this by now. you can get one for my high school in my state.

    Wow, I wonder if the Seahawks originated this idea – after seeing 28 other teams do it?

  5. titletownphipsi says: Mar 28, 2013 6:23 PM

    Can it say “Washington, home of the Fail Mary”?

    The Jerramy Stevens line made this post awesome.

    It should have a picture of a syringe on it.

    This franchise is way ahead of its time. License plates? Whoa. What’s next? I bet they’ll do something crazy like those foam rubber hands with the index finger indicating who #1 is.

    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.

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

    Won’t seahawks be irrelevant by 2014 and no-one want to be stuck with those license plates!

    j/k Seahawk fans :)

  13. seaeagle707 says: Mar 28, 2013 6:42 PM

    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.

  14. MasMacho says: Mar 28, 2013 6:48 PM

    Mine will say “GB WHINER”

  15. scloudsmith says: Mar 28, 2013 6:49 PM

    Washington already has a bunch of other ones: colleges, fire fighters, veterans, wildlife, etc. This is just an addition.

  16. seattlelgt says: Mar 28, 2013 6:50 PM

    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.

  17. the2013miamidolphins says: Mar 28, 2013 6:51 PM

    they dont have them already…what century is Seattle in?

  18. briscocountyjr says: Mar 28, 2013 6:54 PM

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

  19. ripster65 says: Mar 28, 2013 7:00 PM

    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?

  20. moagecu says: Mar 28, 2013 7:05 PM

    only a good 20 years behind the rest if the country

  21. filthymcnasty1 says: Mar 28, 2013 7:06 PM

    One day soon Pete Carrol may be making these license plates himself.

  22. braceyourselffor12 says: Mar 28, 2013 7:23 PM

    Just in time for all the band wagoners to claim they have been die hard fans rooting for the team since day one … of last season.

  23. norcalmafia says: Mar 28, 2013 7:25 PM

    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?

  24. kissmytaintpatriotsrule says: Mar 28, 2013 7:29 PM

    Just another team copying the three time champion Patriots. Inventors of modern day football and the automobile license plate.

  25. thegreatgabbert says: Mar 28, 2013 7:56 PM

    They’ll be obscured by the sheets of rain anyway.

  26. jdubb84 says: Mar 28, 2013 10:02 PM

    About time. We have the crappy mariners but no hawks?

  27. allidoiswin55 says: Mar 28, 2013 10:46 PM

    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.

    Let’s face it. The only purpose of this post is to take another crack at Seattle.

    You know what they say, better late than never…

  31. vbe2 says: Mar 29, 2013 6:29 AM

    The Eagles have had them in PA for several years. I’ve also seen Redskins tags in Virginia I believe.

  32. 15starr says: Mar 29, 2013 9:07 AM

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