Niners fans deride train with Seattle Seahawks' colors

It's a good-news/bad-news situation for public transportation riders in San Francisco.

The good news is that the city has a new fleet of trains for the region's Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system.

The bad news is that the seats inside the train come close to matching the colors of the Seattle Seahawks -- the 49ers' most heated rival at the moment.

An aggrieved Niners fan has started a petition at

"The Seattle Seahawks are the chief rivals of the San Francisco 49ers," the message begins. "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."

(I bet Grace didn't see that shade coming.)

As of Sunday at 7:30 a.m. PT, the petition had gained 423 online signatures. This is exactly what Gandhi was talking about when he purportedly said to be the change you wish to see in the world.
