Seattle Seahawks trying to block 49ers fans from purchasing NFC championship game tickets

Seattle Seahawks fans are proud of their "12th Man" legacy. The team even retired No. 12 for the fans.

The organization is just not ready for a 13th man supporting another team in their stadium.

Seattle will host the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game on Sunday. Apparently, the Seahawks are willing to do whatever it takes to solidify home-field advantage.

According to SFGate.com, the Seahawks are limiting ticket sales to just six states and the Canadian provinces for the upcoming playoff game. Only credit cards with addresses from Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii will be allowed to buy tickets for the game at CenturyLink Field.

Yes, California is among the states excluded from the list.

This is not the first time a professional team has gone to this extreme.

The Nashville Predators instituted a ticket policy for their games against the Chicago Blackhawks that prohibited fans from purchasing single-game tickets for the three home games in the rivalry this season, according to SportsOnEarth.com. Only certain zip codes were allowed to buy tickets to those games.

Seattle’s efforts to block San Francisco fans from taking over its stadium is admirable, but futile.

There are plenty of websites fans can purchase tickets on, like StubHub or Craigslist, and not have to worry about being blocked. Obviously, the Seahawks do not want to be responsible for selling thousands of tickets to 49ers fans, but they cannot prevent them from obtaining seats in their stadium.

However, it is still a great effort to make sure the 12th man does not have to sit next to a 49ers fan.

Y! SPORTS

Freakin hilarious! Loon vs Loon

I wouldn't be surprised at all if a small state vs state war breaks out. Blood will be shed, POWs taken.., scramble the jets and mount the whales.... Only non clashing uniforms will be worn.

I think its ridiculous personally.
Over here a certsin percentage of tickets must be made available for the visiting team, it improves the atmosphere and is safer to keep fans together than allow individual fans to be targets for abuse in certain stadiums

They are worried that crowd noise gets diluted... Crown noise was not as bad Sat as it was in the past.

San Fran doesn't have enough fans for that.

CLASSLESS Organization. Classless team. Classless fans.

This is the way Progressive societies work. Seattle is a liberal bastion of lack of freedom.

Denver's doing the same thing this year and many teams have done the same thing for years. The Bears did it to Seattle several years ago.

Some of you are making a mountain out of a molehill.

Everyone's welcomed in New Orleans. Guess it's a southern thing.
