When being a Fan goes too far?

Here in the greater Seattle area, people paint their houses Seahawks colors, name their kids after Seahawks, and Tatoo Beastmode on their taints.
At what point do you intervene? I have enjoyed the games, but these people are freeks, wtf?

Way too many fans actually think they are part of the team instead of just people being fleeced for the price of a ticket and $8 for a watered down beer. I like it when before the game its "We are going to kick their asses". After the game its "They lost"!

Seahawks fans here have really gone overboard with the whole obnoxious 12th man crap, you'd think they were part of the team. I've been here a year and I'm already dreading this football season. It's a bit funny listening to people talk here and then they would say something like "Well, the chargers are good but they don't have the 12th man"...

That said, shame they can't get behind the mariners a little more than they currently do. I suspect this is a town that likes a winner, much like DC. I saw a poll earlier this year that was close to 70% of respondents said this season was a failure if they don't make it to the playoffs. First time in like 7 years they will likely finish above .500, I'd be pretty pleased. Team is headed in the right direction.

As an O's fan, it's party time when they finish above .500 so this year is epic.
