Seattle Trollhawk Subby fan chose a really bad day to say someone failed.

That part of the freeway probably has the same amount of traffic that would be near Safeco Field.

I find it hard to believe you can't get a billboard in Seattle for less than 7 grand. That doesn't seem like a good roi, assuming you had a legit reason for advertising.

Not really. And its a rotating billboard, so it shares time with CASINO NEXT RIGHT and FIFE NISSAN

Its great they donated the extra to Seattle Childrens' Hospital. Worthy cause.

That's true but it's more about symbolism, not reach.

It's just a game losers. You're not on the team. Your city is more known for homos and Rice-A-Roni.

/And Alcatraz. Escape From Alcatraz, that's a great movie.

49ers' bragging billboard is up... in Fife

I know the NFL wants to promote itself in the UK, but bragging seems unnecessary
 
2013-12-22 11:42:44 PM
Lot of fail all around.

God sports fans are pathetic sometimes. Myself included.

So for a moment that digital billboard WASN'T advertising roulette at the casino in Tacoma?

Roulette...if I wanted to lose money mindlessly hanging out with sleaze balls I'd get a hooker.

People need to grow up and play poker, or at least blackjack.

Ditto on the worthy cause....one of my favorite charities.

/Go Hawks.

There aren't any billboards along I-5 in Seattle proper, so it actually gets more visibility there than anywhere else.

/Go Niners!

Indeed. Scoreboard.

/or should that be Billboard?
//If the Seahawks lose next week and the Niners win tomorrow and next week, Niners actually win the NFC West.
///And if the Failcons beat the Panthers, too, then the Niners could fall into the 1 seed.
////Not likely, but playing with the playoff machine is still kind of fun.

And if the Failcons should beat the Niners and the Cards beat them, too, they can be out of the playoffs entirely.

/just about as likely as the other outcome

Back in '90 there were 3 shopping malls in the Cincinnati area owned by Eddie De Bartolo, and they all said GOOD LUCK NINERS on their signs before the Super Bowl.

Meanwhile, the Rams continue to make use of a plethora of draft picks to quietly rebuild and enhance the defense.

/thanks cowboys

You're saying a rotating billboard in Fife is getting more traffic than one in Downtown Seattle would? Sure.

SF fans can't find Seattle but any friendly bung hole in a bar.

49ers fans raise money for a Children's Hospital in Seattle, and all the Seahawk fans can do is claim what a failure it is.  How have these people become so insufferable?  At least the RedSox fans became obnoxious A-holes only after they picked up a WS title.  Seattle, you've never won anything in any sport....how is it they've become imperious jerks?

Don't forget about all the homeless strung out runaways that SF seems to be a magnet for, streetcars/trolleys, the Golden Gate Bridge, the quake and subsequent fire on 1906... and all of the Chinese.

Sing it with me now!

The world today seems absolutely crackers,
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There's fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It's depressing and it's senseless, and that's why...
I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're always friendly, and they're ready to please.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
There's nine hundred million of them in the world today.
You'd better learn to like them; that's what I say.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They come from a long way overseas,
But they're cute and they're cuddly, and they're ready to please.

I like Chinese food.
The waiters never are rude.
Think of the many things they've done to impress.
There's Maoism, Taoism, I Ching, and Chess.

So I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their yin, and yang-ese.

I like Chinese thought,
The wisdom that Confucious taught.
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The Chinese will survive us all without any doubt.

So, I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're wise and they're witty, and they're ready to please.

All together.

[verse in Chinese]
Wo ai zhongguo ren. (I like Chinese.)
Wo ai zhongguo ren. (I like Chinese.)
Wo ai zhongguo ren. (I like Chinese.)
Ni hao ma; ni hao ma; ni hao ma; zaijien! (How are you; how are you; how are you; goodbye!)

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
Their food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine, and lychees.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their yin, and yang-ese.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees...

That Beats by Dre commercial seems more and more accurate.

Would have been great if they hadn't spent 7 grand on putting a billboard up 30 miles from Seattle attempting to mock the Seahawks and the fanbase, and had instead donated that money to the Children's Hospital.

Also, we have a Stanley Cup and an NBA Title.
 
2013-12-23 06:43:28 PM
And that NBA title for Seattle is closer chronologically to SF's last Lombardi than we are now.
 
2013-12-23 07:09:57 PM
Must have slipped my mind that you guys won the hoops championship back in '79.  My bad.

The one where Kaepernick remains so cool throughout the Seattle fan hate by listening to an awful song that he manages to put up a whole 3 points on the Seahawks?
 
2013-12-24 02:36:16 AM
Why not a giant billboard that says "Seattle Seahawks: Super Bowl XL champions." That's bound to piss them off, even if it's in the wrong county.

/The "How many rings/trophies you got?" is the sports fan's version of the "Oh yeah? So's your mom!" comeback
