Seattle cops to don opponents' jerseys

By Terry Blount

Be careful, Seattle Seahawks fans. That person in a San Francisco 49ers jersey you might want to confront or heckle Sunday just might be a cop.

The Seahawks announced Wednesday that undercover law-enforcement officers will wear opposing team jerseys at games this season in an effort to quickly detect fans exhibiting unruly and inconsiderate behavior.

“We have great fans,” said Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin. “Our goal is to ensure a safe environment for all in attendance, including visiting-team fans.”

Here are a list of the things that can cause fans to be escorted from the stadium or open them up to arrest:
Similar to last season, fans asked to leave the stadium will be required to complete a four-hour online educational course on fan behavior before being allowed to return. The cost of the course is $75. Fans can report any inappropriate activity that is disrupting their enjoyment of the game via text message to HAWK12 (429512).
