If you're going to be a big meanie at the 49ers-Seahawks game this weekend, you might want to make sure the target of your ire is not pointed at a police officer who happens to be undercover.

Because as the Seahawks have said, there will be undercover cops at CenturyLink Field to monitor fan behavior. And they will be wearing the opposing team's jersey (remind me to look up the definition of the word "entrapment." And yes, I'm kidding).

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

If a fan does get tossed out of the stadium for the usual stuff ("Behavior that is unruly, disruptive or illegal in nature," intoxication, verbal abuse, etc.), that person will have to complete a four-hour online educational course on fan behavior and will have to pay $75 for the privilege of watching it.

So, the solution is simple, Seahawks fans.

Be nice to that dude wearing a 49ers jersey. Otherwise, he might have the authority to make your life temporarily very miserable.
