When Seattle Seahawks fans were trying to break the Guinness world record for crowd noise against the San Francisco 49ers, they were advised that undercover cops would be wearing paraphernalia of the 49ers to disguise themselves. In essence, to see if they received any negative attention for their attire.
When the New Orleans Saints come to town for a big game, the undercover cops will be out in force again. The Seahawks gave their fans a warning in a statement issued on Wednesday.
From Pro Football Talk:
“The Seahawks remind all fans attending home games at CenturyLink Field that undercover law enforcement officers will be outfitted in opposing team jerseys,” the team said in a statement issued earlier on Wednesday. “These undercover police officers assist security and game day staff to quickly detect fans exhibiting unruly and inconsiderate behavior.”
The statement carries this headline: “Seahawks Remain Vigilant Enforcing Fan Code of Conduct.”
Seahawks fans, don’t harass Saints fans. I just hope this guy is back for the Saints game:
