'A slap in the face': 49ers fans want Seahawks colors off their mass transit
APR 21, 2014 1:04p ET
San Francisco's Bay Area Rapid Transit system is set to receive new trains, but there is only one problem: BART's new seats are colored neon green and blue, which also happen to be the team colors of the 49ers' arch-rival, the Seattle Seahawks.
In an attempt to change BART's new Seahawks-inspired design, fans have submitted a petition on Change.org.
The Seattle Seahawks are the chief rivals of the San Francisco 49ers. To outfit BART car seats in the team colors of the Seattle Seahawks (i.e. neon green and blue) is an outrage and a slap in the face of every San Francisco 49ers fan who rides BART. We call upon BART General Manager Grace Crunican (who oddly enough worked as Director of the Seattle Department of Transportation prior to joining BART) to scrap plans to adorn BART car seats in neon green and blue and instead choose other colors.
As of this writing, the petition had received 681 signatures; just 381 more would be needed to potentially start the change in BART's design.
This is just another example of why rivalries truly know no bounds.
