(Newser) – The Seattle Seahawks' 0-2 start has left many fans wondering what the problem is. Poor play calling? Too few touches for star tight end Jimmy Graham? The lack of a new Macklemore album? One group of 12s think they know what's hurting the Hawks: the ongoing relationship between singer Ciara and quarterback Russell Wilson, the Sky Herald reports. Believing Wilson does his best work after a breakup, the fans started a GoFundMe account to raise $50,000 to boost Ciara's music career, thus leaving her with little time for dating.

"After his wife cheated on him, he won his first Super Bowl," the GoFundMe page stated. "We’re certain his next big breakup will encourage a rebound of epic proportions." Mashable lends credence to this theory, noting that Ciara's ex—rapper Future—has released three hit mixtapes and a popular album since the two split. Unfortunately for the enterprising home-wreckers, their GoFundMe page was promptly removed. Maybe they'll have better luck raising the $900,000 it will reportedly take to get safety Kam Chancellor back on the field.
