Some San Francisco 49ers fans are unhappy with BART's selection of seat colors for its new cars, saying it reminds them a little too much of their bitter rival Seattle Seahawks. A petition on Change.org is entitled "Please refrain from outfitting the seats in BART cars in neon green and blue, the colors of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks." The petition goes on to state: "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."
