Ron calls 'B.S.' on so-called experts minimizing size of Seahawks Super Bowl parade

Some experts who've taken a look at pictures of last week's Seahawks Super Bowl parade say there's no way the crowd was actually 700,000 strong as estimated.

The Seattle Times contacted several people who make a living estimating the size of crowds, and they say Seattle's big parade drew somewhere between 250,000 and 400,000 to the streets of Seattle, along with thousands more who poured into CenturyLink and Safeco Fields, along with the thousands of others who work in downtown.

Still, the experts weren't there. And KIRO Radio's Ron Upshaw was, and insists these guys are way off.

Here's why Ron calls 'B.S.' on the nay-sayers:
