Back in the late 90s, the Seattle Seahawks nearly moved down to Southern California. Mark Tye Turner joins the show to talk about how he remembers calling into the offices where they were already referring to them as the Anaheim Seahawks. But thanks to the work of Seahawks fans, the city of Seattle, the NFL commissioner at that time and of course to Paul Allen - the team was purchased, a referendum was passed, and Allen went on to hire two of the top coaches in the history of the franchise.

Brandan and Mark talk about some of the personal marks that Paul Allen has put on the team and what some of the potential things the NFL, the city, and the team could do to memorialize and honor his legacy.
