NFL die-hards in America’s north-west have to be some of the most fanatical in world sport.

For the second time in three seasons Seattle Seahawks fans have done the seemingly impossible and created an earthquake by supporting their NFL team.
Seismologists say Seahawks fans shook the ground under Seattle’s CenturyLink Field during Saturday’s defeat of the New Orleans Saints, causing another fan-generated earthquake.
The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was close to Lynch’s famous “beast quake” touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game.
Fans jumped and stomped their way to magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake in 2011 during Lynch’s rambling, tackle-breaking “beast quake” run.
