BEEFING UP SECURITY: In California, Matthias Gafni writes the 49ers "find themselves -- again -- answering questions about Candlestick fan behavior as they prepare for another home game Sunday." At last weekend's game against the Saints, S.F. police "made 23 arrests." The issue has "drawn the attention of the NFL's chief of security, who vowed there will be a 'robust' security presence and zero tolerance" for Sunday's game. NFL Senior VP/Government Affairs Jeff Miller said, "There were a lot of fan conduct situations that were not acceptable that we will address." Miller said that security will "target troublemakers early," and added that he "hopes fans will text, call or find security or police to report bad fan behavior." S.F. Police has "increased staffing by 25 percent for the playoffs" (CONTRA COSTA TIMES, 1/20).
