"A San Francisco 49ers fan started a petition on asking the city`s public transportation system not to outfit its cars with the colors of rival Seattle Seahawks.


The region`s Bay Area Rapid Transit system is getting new trains that look as if they are going to have neon green and blue interiors. It doesn`t matter that the new BART trains aren`t supposed to hit the tracks until 2017; to some 49ers fans, the Seahawks colors are already too much to take."
