49ers fans ready to buy a billboard ad near CenturyLink

49ersbillboardSEATTLE — The animosity between the 12th man and fans of the San Francisco 49ers may escalate to a new level soon.

A group of 49er fans have raised more than $7,000 to buy billboard advertising space near CenturyLink Field. And Hawk fans may have to face the taunting message – ‘How many (Lombardi trophies) do you have?’ – during the Seahawks’ entire playoff run.

The inflammatory billboard is being completely funded via crowd sourcing, led by a group of die-hard Niner fans.

The group’s GoFundMe.com page says the move is a direct response to Seahawk fans paying to fly a ‘Go Hawks’ banner over Candlestick Park during the recent Seahawks-49ers game. According to the groups GoFundMe page, 49er fans hope to find a billboard within a mile of CenturyLink Field and keep the ad there for at least one month.

The 49ers billboard movement started on a Facebook fan page and the concept designs were done by another 49ers fan in the Facebook group.

    So being someone married to a Steelers fan, should Pitt fans in return post an adjacent sign asking the same question to the Whiners fans? They are the only ones with 6, just sayin… Let the jealous fools blow a ton of $ to be stupid. Besides, who in their right minds wants to brag about sharing anything with the Cowgirls?!!!! Enough said.

    For those of us who remember those Superbowls, Joe Walsh and Joe Montana, and Young are a far cry from the type of quarterback and leadership they have now. Let them spend their money! The Hawks were in a different division back then.

      That's exactly what I was thinking. When your current roster does not have a single player from the last super bowl victory, your team hasn't won anything.

    Let 'em have their billboard..

    It'll give them something to look at on their TV's at home while they watch the Hawks advance through the playoffs..

    Sad….high school bs….only says one thing about their ” madhood”… As for the commercial, kinda thinking now we know what’s really going on in the coaches head, to condone or accept his players to be so…immature

  • Niners!!

    You hawks fans started now you can't take the heat. All you have to show for your team is a flag with a 12 on it. Your playoff run will be a short one, enjoy your nba-less winter. But hey at least you have Cano, totally worth $240 mil, keep the dust buster handy for that trophy case!

    Go ahead and gloat 9er's fans! Since the Hawks joined the NFC West you have only won 3 Division titles and lost 1 Super Bowl, the Hawks have won 5 Division titles and lost 1 Super Bowl (the most crookedly officiated Super Bowl in NFL history).
