Which 12-related term suits you?

Nobody mention Texas A&M, okay

fun fact: few people know the needle is the tallest building west of the mississippi river

Over the years, out of tradition, legal necessity, evolution of the fanbase, and preferences of your hoity-toity decision-makers, the fans of the Seattle Seahawks have been called different things. Some of them nice, even.

The legal rigamarole with that university down south eventually pushed the team to abandon official use of “The 12th Man” in favor of other stuff. “The Twelves” is a more inclusive moniker, too, but lacks the tradition of its predecessor. Lately, “We are 12” made an appearance as a slogan.

Perhaps you’ve liked one appellation more than another. Perhaps you’d like a chance to voice approval. Perhaps at hand is exactly that chance.
