Movement to stop Seahawks from celebrating their fans as “12s”
I was listening to AM radio here and there are apparently activists trying to get the Seahawks to stop using the moniker “Twelves” and the iconic “12” banners for the fans because “12” is also now synonymous with Police. Supposedly the Seahawks have been in touch with them and have promised they are reviewing this.

the city of Seattle may as well just go ahead and identify as ISIS

The Sounders fan base sums up Seattle to me. Anytime you see one of their games on the “ultras” are about what you would expect.

This is the first time I’ve ever heard this of the number 12. I always thought it was Five-O. Looks like they’ll have to have no number 50’s for any Seahawks player too.

Sad and funny at the same time. If there’s a city to fold like a cheap lawn chair then it is definitely Seattle.

12 members of the jury. Basically a reference to “the system”.

I guess the number 50 is next.

Hawaii 5-0

I thought 12 was in reference to Adam 12?

It's One Adam Twelve no?

From a tv show no less.

Y’all do know the city of Seattle is named after a racist Indian named ‘Chief Seattle’, who was a slave owner, right?

Google it.

If anything, they need to change the name of the city.

Clearly too young to remember the police drama series Adam-12.

Sounds like an issue to take up with their state representative.
