SF Cops to Don 49ers Garb Looking for Unruly Fans at Sunday's Game

Beat the Lyons, but not literally
Here's a good reason football fans won't want to mess with San Francisco come Sunday: Undercover cops are planning to attend the 49ers game on Sunday between the Detroit Lions, but they won't be watching the game.

Officers will be decked out in either Niners red-and-gold attire or Lions team colors, posing as football fans, yet acting like cops.

Before the game, they'll be on the lookout for scalpers and anyone selling counterfeit tickets. During the game, these officers/football fans will be be staged all around the stadium, watching out for unruly fans (you know who you are).
And since some sports fans act like children, police are now going to treat you all like children. Please read the following statement using your kindergarten teacher's voice:

"The Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind 49ers supporters to treat Lions fans as if they are SFPD officers, because they very well could be. San Francisco is a world class city, with a world-class football team and fans. Let's welcome the Lions fans as guests in our great city."

In other words, sober up and grow up!

You misspelled Lions, dunce. Next time you want to tell people how to behave, maybe you should  read a book on journalism or spell check instead. I doubt you've ever been to _any_ football game.

You might want to double-check the spelling of "Lyons" in that SFPD press release...
