Undercover cops to patrol Seahawk games
Thu Aug 29, 2013 10:26 am

  • Sounds like a dream job for a seahawk fan cop. Get paid to watch a seahawk game and only have to do anything if someone's a real jackass.

  • Interrupt a Seahawks fan cop trying to watch a game in the 3rd or 4th quarter you can pretty much guarantee you're gonna get the business lol.

Undrcover officers at Hawks games
Thu Aug 29, 2013 1:59 pm
  • "Take it easy with your trash-talk at Seahawks games this season—that fan in the other team’s jersey might actually be an undercover cop.

    Toward the end of last football season, police received complaints about fan-on-fan violence and harassment in and out of the stadium, some of which was witnessed first-hand by officers attending games while off-duty."

  • Excellent move. They get to watch the game, and if someone starts causing trouble, they get to kick their unruly ass!

  • When you can't feel comfortable taking your young children to a game because of the profanity, threats, and possible violence, it's time to step up efforts to provide a family friendly environment, that's how it's a good thing...

  • According to the article it was a couple of off duty cops that were causing the trouble,... in one incident anyway.

    From the article.

    One of those episodes involved two off-duty Bellevue (Wash.) police officers who used profanity at a uniformed Seattle police officer and stadium workers and later were escorted out.

    I remember that event from the newspaper last year. These Bellevue off-duty cops were harassing everyone, SPD officers (particularly a female officer), fans of both teams, cursing at children when adults asked them to tone it down, spouting off how great they are because they are Bellevue police officers, etc.

    It's basically instances and events like these that ruin in for the rest of us. I've had season tickets for 10-years now and I've been to most of them. I've only seen one fight break out in my time and I've been in the same section for 9 of the 10 years. Morons who can't control themselves and feel justified in being a jerk. All it does it allow for overraction because no one has the ability to step in and tell some jagoff to behave like a human being.

    Here's a link to the Seattle Times Article.

  • Was watching the Pats and Gnats game and saw this on the screen scroll. I unfortunately haven't been to the CLink for a couple of years, but I would be surprised and disappointed in our fans if this was the case. Been going to Hawks games for 35+ years and every time I've seen an a-hole act up to an opposing fan, our guys have always self-policed, so I don't know if this is contrived by others for their own reasons or if that's the acutal case.

    Edit: It WAS the police...nice.

  • Lets see two off duty Bellevue cops get in an altercation, Seattle hires undercovers that will bait Seattle fans into doing of saying something to get them fined, arrested or escorted out of the stadium. Typical Seattle bullshit, being open and visable will defuse situations rather then trying to entrap fans.

    Seattle already has a reputation as trigger happy, and racist based on all the lawsuits and videos here catching them over the last 10 or so years.

    I think New Orleans is the only other city that had a more corrupt and prejudicial police department.

  • Don't know how I feel about this...they're going to be wearing opposing team's gear (I don't know if that's all the time). So a couple knuckleheads start talking crap (usual football stuff you see) to them and they start pushing back, maybe even escalating the situation. Bam! You're out son!

  • I don't think it's necessary for them to wear the opposing gear. It seems like that makes them a participant instead of an unbiased (as much as possible) viewer. When a cop is directly confronted by something it would be human nature for the cop to escalate it since he knows he holds the winning hand every time. I think it's a bad idea. At first it seemed like a good idea but after giving it some thought I don't like it.

  • I remember last time I was at Qwest/Clink field a lady with a kid in her arms starting swearing at me. Football games universally don't attract the best crowd. The only place where people have been friendly to me as an opposing fan is Arizona. So far I have attended @Sea, @NYJ, @AZ, and lasts years superbowl.

  • Some of you guys have some crazy experiences at games. Every Niners game I've been to (always 300 level seats), I've never seen an altercation or heard anyone getting cursed out. The worst I saw was in a long line at the bathroom, a Niners fan was flipped off by a passing Seahawks fan.


    Even before games during tailgating behind Outdoor Emporium, there's only a loud "Boo!" A couple choice curse words and that's it. Most of the ones I've come across we just smile say "Wassup!" And keep it moving.

  • Trust me, you don't have to be a buffoon to get harassed dressed up as an opposing fan in the clink or at most nfl stadiums.

    The last time I went to a SF @ Sea game was before Harbaugh became coach so the rivalry wasn't even that hot yet. I couldn't imagine how bad it is now.

    Well at least you didn't get stabbed :grin: lol sorry had to go there...

    I've had nothing but good experiences with opposing fans around me and outside the stadium. Last game (the 42-13 thrashing, remember?) my friend and I and another guy and his wife were having banter throughout the whole game. It was all fun but he let us know at the end of the game ,"I thought were going to have to fight, but you guys are awesome fans."

  • While walking back to my car tonight I got a nice "F*ck the Seahawks" screamed at me by a car full of Raider Fans. SMH.

    Also during the game was actually having a pleasant conversation with one Raider fan who told me when he gave a head nod to another Raider fan earlier in the game, that fan just continued to mad dog him...


    Yet we need to control ourselves...okay.

  • I don't have a problem with the police patrols. Good natured razzing of opposing fans is okay but mean-spirited, vulgar epithets shouted at them are not. I've seen that happen a few too many times at games and it needs to be cracked down on, IMO.

  • While I don't think the situation should ever turn violent, I am glad when I see people in opposing jerseys getting jeered at the games.

    Think about why the home field advantage is so important to the Hawks, it is because of how loud the stadium gets when the Hawks are on defense. Now imagine what would happen to that advantage if 1/4 of tickets or more in the stadium were sold to opposing teams fans. It is important to the success of the team to keep the number of opposing teams fans to a minimum. If you want to take your kids to a laid back atmosphere, go to a Mariners game and enjoy being able to spread out in the unfilled seats :)

  • It would be nice if they would do this at other stadiums.

    Obviously I wear Hawk gear to the games, and I don't get harrassed, but I rarely see anyone from other fan bases get harrassed at the CLink.

    Try going to Arizona sometime. The experience with that fan base was terrible. Much worse than the 49ers game I went to at Candlestick (although the Niners were bad back then, so I'm sure it's worse now).

  • They SHOULD be there checking out all the drunk hooligans. Our fans have become a bunch of drunk clowns, many do not belong in the stands or even on gthe streets. Have you guys not heard and seen them, aabsolute bunch of pigs, some of the worst in the league in some areas of the stadium.

    don't give me shit about my post, IF the shoe fits wear it, if not, move on

  • I saw the news last night and people were on there saying good we don't want to hear swearing, another saying we should welcome them with open arms and celebrate with them , fricking sounds like the flower power of the 60's and people on acid. Only the tree huggers and anti plastic bagger's along with the Byciclists that feel they have more rights then a car on the road make these statements.

    Those are the fans that are going to be heard in the courts and want to silience football games so little Jimmy can get his nmap time in when they take him to the game with them.

  • Anything beyond friendly razzing and light hearted trash talk is stupid, imo. Truth is the opposing fans have a lot more in common with us then not. They love football. They love going to games. They just happen to like a different team. Its certainly not worth cussing at them, throwing things at them, or fighting with them about it.

    (except for Ramzfanz... i'd kinda like to smack him just once)

  • What about opposing fans that harass Seahawks fans? They get a pass I suppose? Why because they are all so well behaved? They never instigate anything I'm sure.
