The Seattle Seahawks meet the San Francisco 49ers for the third time this season and have taken all measures to make sure their visitors feel most uncomfortable with the ban of ticket sales to the state of California.

Posted in Blogroll on January 12th, 2014 by Ronald Glover

(Kelley L. Cox/USA Today)

The 6’4, 290 lb. Greg Hardy has promised a long day for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
