    The closest a pro-49ers billboard has gotten to the Seahawks' home turf is a digital billboard on Interstate 5, 30 miles south of Seattle.

    No tickets for 49ers fans from the Seattle Seahawks organization.

    And no billboards, either.

    The two miles around CenturyLink Field near the downtown Seattle waterfront has been declared a "49er-free zone," according to the Seattle Times.

    "Only pro-Hawks billboards will be allowed" within that radius of the "12th Man's" home base, the newspaper reported.

    The closest a pro-49ers billboard has gotten to the Seahawks' home turf is a digital billboard on Interstate 5, 30 miles south of Seattle.

    And that billboard appears to have suffered a "mysterious" electronic malfunction, according to reports.

    Seattle: Why so serious?
