(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.

The worst beating I have seen at a football game was administer by security guards, three on one, baton strikes. About 20 of them.

Seeing fans size each other up before they go to fists is funny. Seeing a drunk dad with his 12 year old son in the seat next to him, start punching the dad in the row ahead of him, who has an 7 year old daughter, is not so much fun to see. Taking both out in handcuffs as the entire section claps,.......PRICELESS. Calling the moms to pick up the kids, not so much. Having to turn the kid over to DHS because its a single dad, tragic.
