Why the Seahawks aren’t selling any of their 2017 NFL Championship rings
I’m not sure what the point is of saying, “We’re not selling our ring,” but this is the reality for Seattle Seahawks fans.
After losing Super Bowl XLIX to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Seahawks lost their only championship to the Arizona Cardinals, which happened during the 2016 season.
The Seahawks have yet to win another NFC title since their first trip to the Super Bowl in 2001.
And after winning their first Super Bowl, the team hasn’t won another since their last appearance in 2017.
So why would the Seahawks decide to sell off their ring collection?
That’s a good question.
I think that’s one of the reasons why they’re so open about it.
The Seattle Seahawks, who are owned by Walt Disney Co., have the highest debt of any NFL team.
In 2016, they were under the microscope when it came to paying off the $9 billion debt they had to pay for their stadium.
The team has also been in trouble since the 2020 bankruptcy filing.
And while the team has made strides in recent years, the debt still sits at $16.9 billion.
The Seattle Seahawks are not the only team in trouble, though.
The Los Angeles Rams are currently facing similar financial issues and are looking for a new stadium.
And the Los Angeles Chargers are also facing financial troubles, but the team’s owners, Peter Guber and Steve Bisciotti, have made it clear that they don’t want to sell their franchise.
