As much as it saddens me that we could not make the Snohomish County Stealth work out. I am glad to see the great fans of Everett get a team.
As a fan I'm going to support the team. As i love this game with all my hart.
To all the great men and women that worked on the Stealth for the last two years. THANK YOU!! We won this battle. ALL we ever wanted was to bring back indoor football to Everett. With out Sam Adams. Its here. Not the way we wanted it. But it is here. I want to say thank you to Brandon for all his hard work with the Stealth. I know this is a very hard time for you. As it is for me. Your hard work did the job. There is a team. You well go down in history as the greatest indoor football fan in the eyes of this fan. Great job!!
Now for Tuckman, We have not seen eye to eye. Here is your chance to prove us all wrong. I hope you do a great job. I relay do. As the futcher of this sport in Everett is now in your hands. PLEASE do not fumble. As if the Destroyers do not succeed. There might NEVER be another team here in Everett.
I hope all the Hawks and Stealth fans now can get together and show up and make this the BEST city for football in the IFL
Thanks Chris 'the JET" Nealy
