49er fans planning to troll Seattle with billboard

Christian Petersen

The rivalry between the Seahawks and 49ers continues to escalate and now billboards are involved.

The rivalry between the Seahawks and 49ers is developing into one of the best in the NFL and it extends off the playing field. Seattle fans recently raised money to fly a "Go Hawks" banner over Candlestick Park and now 49er fans have raised money to buy a billboard in Seattle mocking the Seahawks.

The fundraising campaign has raised more than $8,000 which will allow the group to purchase a billboard near CenturyLink Field for a month. The billboard will feature a picture of Dwight Clark making "The Catch" in the background with five Lombardi Trophies in the foreground and the text "How Many Do You Have?" San Francisco has won five Super Bowls while the Seahawks are still attempting to win their first.

The group needed to raise $7,000 to fund the project and any additional money raised will be donated to the Seattle Children's Hospital, according to the San Jose Mercury News. According to the fundraising page, the plan is to purchase the billboard in late December so it will stay up through January. If Seattle clinches home-field advantage, the billboard would be up during the Seahawks' playoff run, which might just include a game against the 49ers.

Now, the question is what will Seahawk fans do to respond to the response from 49er fans. Levi's already secured the naming rights to San Francisco's new stadium, so that's out of the question. Maybe Seattle fans will buy up all of the billboard space in the city before 49er fans can. I guess we'll have to wait and find out. Until then you can head over to Field Gulls and Niners Nation, which are never short on back-and-forth between the fan bases.
