While the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers don’t have a storied rivalry, they certainly have an intense one.
Both franchises seemingly rose from the NFL’s ashes to prominence at the same time and have since exchanged haymaker punches over the past few years. The rivalry seemed to achieve new heights during the 2013 season as Seattle and San Francisco faced off against each other in the NFC Championship game which played out in intense fashion until the final few seconds ticked off the clock.
It was a Richard Sherman tip that prevented the San Francisco 49ers from making the Super Bowl and it seems Seattle Seahawks fans aren’t ready to let that memory go.
The famed 12th man was at San Francisco’s brand new Levi’s Stadium recently (why exactly is unknown) where the 49ers installed a Michael Crabtree mannequin . The figure has been a focal point of fans taking photo’s during San Francisco’s two preseason games, though a Seahawks fan decided to jump the shark in hilarious fashion as can be seen below.

A Seattle fan named ‘Larry’ sent the above photo to The Dori Monson Show which shows the Seahawks supporter trolling 49ers fans with a reenactment of the famed ‘tip’ that broke the heart of so many in the Bay Area.
“I think every Hawk fan should visit the stadium and strike the same pose,” says Larry. “I’d love to see how many photos we can post before the folks down there decide to move Crabtree behind glass or something.”
Pretty creative and hilarious troll job.
