Paul Allen to be inducted in Seahawks Ring of Honor

“At the end of the day, there was no Plan B,” King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer said upon the 20th anniversary of Allen purchasing the team. “There was only Plan A, and Plan A was Paul Allen. Nobody in this community wanted to buy the franchise.”

“In the end, it wasn’t a financial decision. It was a decision of commitment, and I go back to the fact that this is an Allen family commitment to this community, because there was no financial reason for him to buy the team, and there was no personal reason for him to buy the team… Paul Allen, he was not the last person standing, he was the only person standing. And he made a commitment not based upon a financial reward, not based upon anything personal; he based it on the values that his mom and dad taught him, and we owe as much to Faye and Ken Allen as we do Paul.”


With best wishes,
Pete von Reichbauer
King County Councilmember
