The Atlanta Falcons will face off against the Seattle Seahawks this Saturday, and while in no way related to the game, or football in general, Future's name continues to be brought up -- a petition to have the rapper sing the nation anthem at the event being the most recent development.

This, of course, all stems from Future's ex, Ciara, being married to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. A report earlier this week suggested that the DJ for the Atlanta Falcons would have plenty of Future in rotation, which, if it were to happen, would be the second time that exact strategy has been used against Wilson.

The petition, though it has close to 3000 signatures, seems less likely to get off the ground, though we would be interested to hear Future's take on the Star Spangled Banner under less petty circumstances.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn has made it clear that there will be no preference for Future in the playlist at Saturday's game, so we can assume Future won't be doing any live vocals either.

View the petition, as shared by Eddie Huang, below. Is it time to retire the Future-Ciara jokes?
