My name is Lars Hanson. I'm a 15 year old sophomore from Bainbridge Island, Washington. I'm a huge sports fan.
My teams that I will write about and love are...
Seattle Sounders FC
I write for NFLtouchdown.com as the Seattle Seahawks lead blogger but also split time here on B/R.

Breaking News: Powe to sign with Cavs!
See my brief report here and tell me what you think.
Twins are up 3-0 in the first man!
Another NFL piece out, an interesting one actually. The 2008 season was faced with the injury bug, as many stars sat out for most of the season. I have found five players that are ready to return and make an impact in 2009. Who gets the top five spots? Appreciate any feedback given!
In that entire response, I did not once see you take any responsibility for your profanity-laced tirade, and that is very concerning. You also never once discussed an apology to Andy, but only demands of one from him in your direction.
I can't stand in your corner if you are not mature enough to accept mutual blame for the situation getting out of control between the two of you...as I read your response to him and was very offended/disgusted.
I hope you change your mind in that area, as it was nearly as disappointing reading your response on my BB as it was reading your response on your article thread.
You continue to say "he he he" in regards to everything involved, including "he did this" "he won't stop this" "he needs to apologize" "he needs to leave me alone."
YOU WROTE ABOUT HIM NEGATIVELY AND OPENLY IN YOUR ARTICLE...and do not hide behind "not naming him" as if he and everyone else wouldn't know who you were discussing or try to find it out. If anything, it is more immature to leave him unnamed, as you then tried to pretend it wasn't about him...when it clearly clearly was.
If you want him to leave you alone...don't mention him and his actions in an article for him and everyone to see.
This is my last attempt to reach you, and I hope you hear it clearly and react to it. I can't help but expect more drama to inevitably commence in the future if you don't change your thought process.
The San Antonio Spurs have been one of the most sucessfull team this past ten years.
Are they a dynasty or not?
Alright Lars, well at least you are apologetic for your actions. I don't condone or support what either of you did to each other, and was frankly disappointed with what surfaced.
If you truly did not want him commenting on your BB or articles, you should not have brought him up as an example/attack of what is wrong with the B/R rankings system. You were baiting him, and that is not at all right Lars. Your subsequent profanity-laced response was uncalled for and immature, and effectively took away ANY & ALL of the credibility you had in the debate.
You truly need to apologize to Andy (and of course him to you as well), not to writers like Blaine and myself...but I appreciate the efforts to make things right. As I said earlier, you are a good writer, and I hope that becomes more important than arguments among the Seattle Seahawks community from here on out.
It is water under the bridge as far as I'm concerned, and it won't prevent me from suporting your work. I would, however, suggest fixing this dispute before something else manifests itself down the road.
If something like Andy's actions could make you melt down, imagine what the media world will do to you if you are fortunate enough to get a big break. You need to learn how to deal with people you don't agree with and don't like, as you will encounter many of them across the walks of life.
Cursing, yelling, or undermining these people will likely cost you credibility, respect, and your job in general.
Best of luck in the future Lars, and I look forward to seeing a more mature and changed writer from now on. I hope my advice can help you get where you want to go.
I think you'll like this article about not only Brady vs. Peyton, but also about the Patriots' offensive unit as a whole!
I would love for you to read and comment.
Hey, I'm looking to continue my series of story collections...do you have any Safeco Field stories? If so leave me a post and thanks!
Hi, I'm writing an article about Cheney Stadium in Tacoma and wondered if you had any good storys that take place there. Leave me a post if you do!
Hi Lars, the link does work. But in either case, I'd definitely inquire about it.
