Some of Seattle's finest will don the enemy's wardrobe Sunday in an effort to keep the peace. 

KOMO News reports CenturyLink Field will be strewn with police officers dressed up like San Francisco 49ers fans: 

In an effort to weed out unruly fans, the Seattle Seahawks say they will have undercover police officers wearing opposing team apparel beginning with Sunday night's highly anticipated matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Seahawks announced the plan Wednesday, saying the goal is to ensure a safe environment for all fans, including those supporting the visiting team.

The Seahawks have some of the best and most engaged fans in football. In an interesting subplot, we will find out if these fans can also produce the loudest cheer in sports history. 

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Seahawks fan group known as Volume 12 will attempt to break the Guinness record for loudest stadium.

The record is 131.76 decibels during a soccer match in Istanbul, and the loudest the Seahawks fans have mustered is 112.

An already raucous crowd will be that much more boisterous as a division rival and formidable foe comes to town. If that weren't enough, they will be joining together to try to break a record. The camaraderie and goodwill will be quite evident. 

Still, there are always a few drunk apples to ruin a perfectly pleasant apple juice, or however that saying goes. 

Go ahead and pound those brews and tailgate like a champ, but make sure you maintain some sense of decorum. 

That 49ers fan you would love to chide in the stadium may just be a police officer ready to pop you for being a jerk. 

If that weren't enough to convince you to ease off on the debauchery, KOMO News reports there will be an added punishment if you are kicked out: 

Any fans asked to leave for violations of fan conduct will have to complete a four-hour online educational course at their own cost before they will be cleared to attend events at the stadium again.

So you will miss a huge game and have to go back to school. Something tells me Seahawks fans will be on their best behavior come Sunday night.
