Who would have thought that BART seats could appear more repulsive to riders? Alas, 49ers fans are outraged by the brand new seats that will make for a cleaner, fresher ride in 2017.
Sure, football fans would like new seats, but not if they're outfitted in the team colors of the Seattle Seahawks -- that's a sore spot for San Franciscans. BART unveiled its new fleet last week, showing off, among many things, the new fabric-less seats that will no longer be a hub of all things disgusting.
Everyone seemed pleased (at least with the new seats) until a die-hard 49ers fan spoke up, pointing out that the new neon green and blue color scheme is the also team colors for the Seattle Seahawks. As a result, 49ers fans have drummed a petition, demanding BART switch out the offensive seats.
