(Newser) – Apparently, Seattle Seahawks fans have gotten thuggish to the point that police are going undercover for today's game—dressed in 49ers jerseys, in a tactic aimed squarely at curbing fan fights and attacks. "The goal here is to get people to be on their best behavior," says a police spokesman. The Seahawks are making fans who get kicked out pay for and take a four-hour online course—in the apparently hard-to-grasp concept of how to behave like a human being—before they'll be let back inside. The Seahawks say 50 people have graduated NFL charm school, reports KIRO TV.

KIRO quotes a guy who got his face smashed for the sin of wearing a Packers jersey: "My eye I couldn't open the first night, my nose had to be rebroken the following week." Depressing? At least Taiwanese animators have gotten in on the action.
