49ers' bragging billboard is up... in Fife
KING TV (Seattle) ^ | 12/23/2013

Posted on 12/23/2013 9:45:09 AM PST by llevrok

A group of 49ers fans who raised money for a billboard in Seattle to brag about their team's five Super Bowl trophies got their sign - but it's nowhere near CenturyLink Field.

The digital billboard is just north of Fife, about 27 miles from downtown Seattle. Niners fans raised money through the fundraising site gofundme.com. They raised more than the $7,000 needed to pay for the billboard so the rest will go to charity. A Seahawks fan wants to do the same thing in San Francisco, but to promote Seattle Children's hospital and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

On Sunday, a Facebook event invited the 12th man to photo bomb the billboard on Dec. 28.

"The 49ers thought they would out do us by putting up a billboard near our stadium.. epic fail since it isn't even in the same county!!! Let's get together and show them a billboard doesn't scare off the 12th Man and have a photo bomb of the billboard. You know how we do!!" the page says.

Not a good move.. The last thing the Hawks need is to be tweaked .. Or beat at home.

Go Falcons (from a ol ‘Vike fan living a few miles from the new new new Levi’s stadium.) !!!

I'm not making any sense of this billboard. I'd say they wasted their money.

This electronic bill board site has been controversial as it violates WA state signage law. But it’s on Puyallup tribal land so is sacred......

I’m looking for a loophole that will let me join a tribe and start ignoring regulations I don’t like.

Do you think the dozen or so rusting cars, trucks, and trailers on that one side of the fence could be any indication?

This sign is a good example of why I'm not a 9er fan.

Its also a good example of why I'm more interested in baseball these days.

Joe Fitzgibbon, D-Burien, is a state Representative from Washington State. Last night, he was upset about the Seahawks’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals, so he posted a tweet calling Arizona a “desert racist wasteland.”

When news of his nasty liberal attitude came out he deleted the tweet, but it had already been captured...

If you go to a 49ers home game, don’t ask the fan next to you to hold your seat....

This billboard is obnoxious. It can be seen for miles down the road. It's basically a Jumbotron, right by the highway.

I find it very distracting, and would wager that someday will cause a serious accident.

that billboard has been there for years announcing upcoming acts at the Emerald Queen or Muckleshoot casinos..

and that stretch of I5 doesn’t require a garish sign to cause accidents. Fife is not a prestige address the way Medina or Queen Anne are.

I’ve lived in or near SF my entire lifetime and 49er fans are the most obnoxious and arrogant front-runners in the world.

Most were Raider fans prior to 1981

BTW, they last won a SB in 1994 - talking up the 5 SB’s is a bit dated and makes them look desperate. Which they are.
Their home and road won/loss record also shows they can’t win a road playoff game. They’ll be one and done if they have to travel.

Not to mention former owner Eddie D is a big crook.

The point it magnifies is the Obama legacy of being able to accuse everyone who disagrees with you of being a racist. Joe Fitzgibbon looks like a young man, but he already has that liberal mean streak ingrained in him. So, even if the people of Arizona make a studied decision to protect the economic balance in their state and control their ability to sustain support services, to the representative elected by the folks in Burien they are racists.

By extension, I am assuming most of the people in Burien feel the same way.
