Seahawks fans want to buy ‘message’ brick at new 49ers stadium

SeahawksSEATTLE — A group of Seahawks fans are planning a little spoiler for San Francisco 49ers fans in their future football stadium.

Fans on the r/Seahawks subreddit Web page of Reddit.com are planning to donate money to buy a fundraising brick at the new “Fanwalk” at the future Levi’s Stadium.

They haven’t figured out what the message on the brick will be yet.  Donors will get to vote on the message. Since it has to be approved by stadium officials, phrases like the obvious “Go Hawks” probably won’t be allowed.

But the brick will be installed alongside thousands of others in the new stadium’s plaza.

Some Reddit users say the way to go would be to use a more pleasant message, perhaps congratulating the 49ers on their new stadium.  Others say they won’t donate for the brick, unless it has a more “in your face” type of message for San Francisco fans.

As of 6 p.m. Wednesday, the site has raised $385.  With the cheapest bricks priced at $195, it appears organizers may be able to purchase more than one.

    Goes with what my 49er fan of a son tells me. The Seahawks fans show no class sometimes. Although going over to their page there are some people that say that if they can't buy the brick the money should be donated to a charity, so … maybe their thoughtfully classless.
