Perhaps the Seahawks meant they will have the loudest stadium just on this Sunday night. That would be true.

In a tweet on Thursday, Seattle tried to lay claim to being the loudest place for a football game, but Chiefs fans let the Seahawks know they are the former record holder.

In 2014, Chiefs fans set the Guinness record with a roar of 142.2 decibels, which broke the previous mark of 137.6 decibels that had been set by Seattle fans at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks tried their hand at poetry Thursday, but like so many before them, it didn’t turn out well. Here is the tweet in question, which was setting up Seattle’s game against the Colts:

“Sunday Night Football.

“Seatown is where it goes down.

“There’s no place LOUDER.‪#NationalPoetryDay”

Naturally, Chiefs fans took issue with that, and they let the Seahawks know about it:
