Seahawks form fan advisory panel

49ers Seahawks Football AP

In an effort to better the experience of attending an NFL game in Seattle, the Seahawks announced Tuesday they will be forming an advisory panel consisting of season tickets holders that will meet with team executives in an effort to get input directly from the fan base.

The group will consist of 12 Seahawks season ticket holders that will meet regularly with team president Peter McLoughlin.

“The Fan Advisory Council will play an important role in our efforts to maintain and enhance the Seahawks fan experience,” McLoughlin said in a statement. “We will hold quarterly meetings to discuss and focus on a variety of fan related issues including: in-stadium fan experience, game presentation and in-stadium technology.”

The Seahawks aren’t the only team that have looked to their fan base for input to improve the fan experience. The Cleveland Browns formed a similar panel in 2009 with 25 fans selected by the team to meet with members of the Browns front office.

    The question is whether this panel can catch all the PEDs flowing into the locker room or not!!

    The Sounders started doing this several years ago and it’s been a success.

    Of course McLoughlin is involved with the Seattle Sounders as well so he’s probably porting that concept to the NFL side.

    Cleveland did this first? Then I sure hope the 12th man does better at this than the Dawg Pound.

    How about an internal advisory panel aimed at stopping PED use?

    The panel could start by telling the fans to keep quiet when the other team has the ball.

    It’s really loud at that stadium.

    Are they gonna hand out Addys and HGH at the meetings?

    Maybe a beer for less than $12 ??

    The first meeting will be to discuss any recommendations for a PED To be distributed!!

    Wish I still lived in Seattle. Pretty sure I could’ve talked my way onto the panel. How cool would it be to meet with NFL execs a couple times a year?

    Maybe invite 12 fans that would like to go to games but can’t afford it or don’t want to expose their family to some of the nonsense that goes on at a game.

    Inviting 12 people who have enough money (and love the team enough to buy season tickets) to tell you how to get more people just like them to come to games doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

    “oh look, the biline says ‘Seahawks’ let me go make a PED joke”.

    it’s called a dead horse. why are you still scuffing your kicks on it?

    a story about fan experience on game day stadium visits and you clever commenters attempt to put PEDs in it? now that, my friends, is original and funny…. (sarcasm)

    I think it’s a great idea. kind of surprised more teams don’t do it. any time you, as a business, can get direct feedback from your most loyal consumers, it always had to be seen as a win.

    The Browns have 25 fans that are willing to admit to being Browns fans in public?

  13. ringwormsherm says: Jun 19, 2013 9:22 AM

    People still trying to make jokes about the PED’s? Real clever. Simple people:/

    Que the idiots that want to see Adderall being sold at the concession stands……

    I can’t figure out if the Seahawks fans or the Packer fans have a greater sense of self-importance.

  16. purpleguy says: Jun 19, 2013 11:15 AM

    They should have a Viking fan on that panel seeing as how the team’s coaches and players are largely MN cast-offs.

    Good luck with that. If they aren’t going to get ticket prices reduced or reverse some of Goodell’s new policies, I don’t know what they hope to achieve. I think they are just being thrown a bone to appease that “12th man ” thing. The people who run the stadium are just going to give them lip service and still do what they want to do.

    It’s hard to improve on one of the best fan experiences in the NFL but I like that the Seahawks are trying anyway.
