Frank T. Raines (aka FTR) introduced himself to the Field Gulls community on February 5th, 2021, with the well-received 'If I were John and Pete (Part One)'. Three days later, FTR submitted part three of that nine-part series, advocating for the Seahawks to trade Russell Wilson -- 13 months to the day before they did exactly that.
