San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system has been restocked with new trains, which is good news for the bustling city’s commuters.
But for the 49ers fans among them, they’re now forced to ride in bright green and blue cars that closely resemble a certain NFC West nemesis.
This is a problem.

So much of a problem, in fact, that one “outraged” Niner fan even started a petition on Change.org, urging the BART authority to alter the color of the seats.
“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. I 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,” the petition reads.
As of publication time, the petition has gathered over 500 signatures out of a possible 1,000. Considering how fast these things go viral, it won’t be long until the quota is met.
Crunican — who either has a good sense of humor or doesn’t follow the NFL too closely — can only sit back and wait.
