The 2022 annual Field Gulls rules refresher for Seattle Seahawks fans – Field Gulls

Filed under:
With the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills facing off on Sunday Night Football on Thursday Night, the 2022 NFL season has arrived, and just days remain until the Seattle Seahawks host the Denver Broncos for Monday Night Football in the Carroll versus Wilson revenge game.
That means just one thing: It’s time for the Field Gulls annual rules refresher. Jumping right into it, here are the prohibited activities on all 280 sites under the SBNation umbrella:
None of these are new or groundbreaking, as they’ve all been in place for long enough that most fans are well aware of them, and there’s no great mystery behind any of them. In addition, the following are Field Gulls specific:
Nothing groundbreaking or earth shattering here, but if we didn’t need the rules we wouldn’t have them.
For some extra tips from Alaric’s rules post last year:
Context matters. Jokes that may be fine in Post-Snap Reads may well be hidden in an article about an off-field incident. If a particular topic has been discussed a lot for 4 days in a row, consider not bringing it up for a 5th day. Gamethread Emotion™ can spill over a little into the post-game articles, but not a lot, and definitely not in the middle of a Wednesday analysis.
Use the flag feature to help bring stuff you feel is inappropriate to our attention. Keep in mind that we may not be refreshing the moderation queue all the time, and just because something has stayed up for a few hours doesn’t mean the commentor hasn’t been warned behind the scenes. If you have one of your own comments disappear that you don’t think was breaking any rules, try not to worry about it too much. We read hundreds of comments a day. Mistakes can happen. Even if you’re formally warned, we’re really not itching to ban anyone, try to think of it as a reminder of community guidelines instead of a penalty.
Consider using the Cancel button. Even if you’re technically within the rules and guidelines, are you frequently right up against the edge? As John Fraley said particularly well a few years ago, does your comment “illuminate discussion, or inflame tension”? There can be some value in being inflammatory, but if it’s most or all of what you do, are you contributing to the community, or just fulfilling your own ranting needs?
So, that’s all there is to it. Unless there’s more about which one has questions, in which case that is what the comments are for so ask away.
