The football rivalry between San Francisco and Seattle now extends to the region’s Bay Area Rapid Transit system, with some fans up in arms new trains are getting decked out with seats in the Seahawks colors.

The green and blue seats have sparked a Change.org petition, demanding the BART authority change the seats to different colors.

“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.”

It hasn’t exactly sparked a groundswell. Just 1,542 people had signed the petition as of Monday evening. The new trains don’t go into service until 2017, leaving plenty of time for 49ers fans to get really angry, and hopefully lament at least one more Seahawks Super Bowl championship.
