Teams have been complaining about the Colts doing this for years, including the Steelers. So it's nothing new. There's a big difference between piping in extra crowd noise and a naturally loud stadium (Qwest Field in Seattle, and the old Kingdome). One you can control, and the other one you can't. Will the league see the difference and come down on them for it? Only time will tell.

the supposed sound being pumped in that people heard over the BROADCAST, as a "skipping cd" was said to be a malfunction in the BROADCAST trailor and wasnt heard inside the actual stadium.

in other words, only people who saw the game on TV witnessed this supposed cheating.

patriot apologists need something to believe, that explains why their team was held to 10 points in about 3 quarters of play. after all, they are brainwashed into thinking their team cannot be beat, as if success is their birthright.

Well, it's officially a non-story now:

Quote:
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts contend the debate about the decibel level in the RCA Dome is merely noise, and now they have the NFL taking their side.

A day after some unusual sounds were heard during the Colts-Patriots broadcast Sunday, the NFL issued a statement saying what sounded like simulated crowd noise was actually created by the CBS production crew, not the Colts.

"CBS has informed us that the unusual audio moment heard by fans during the Patriots-Colts game was the result of tape feedback in the CBS production truck and was isolated to the CBS broadcast," the league said. "It was in no way related to any sound within the stadium and could not be heard in the stadium."

Network officials did not give any additional details, referring only to the league's statement. The telecast received the highest rating overnight rating, 22.5, of any Sunday afternoon regular-season NFL game since at least 1987 and had a 39 share nationally.

The Web site YouTube carried a 1-minute, 10-second clip entitled "Indy Cheats" that replayed the moments in question.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, a 14-yard pass from Tom Brady to Randy Moss, the crowd noise is heard before and during the play, then immediately cuts out when Moss is tackled. In addition, there appeared to be a vibration in the sound while the crowd was cheering.

A published report on yahoo.com said Patriots president Jonathan Kraft complained to NFL vice president of security Milt Ahlerich afterward. Kraft is the son of Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Any enhancement of crowd noise would violate NFL rules, and Patriots spokesman Stacey James denied the team either filed or intended to file a formal complaint with the league.

It's not the first time Indianapolis has been accused of such tactics. The Pittsburgh Steelers complained about the same thing after a 26-7 loss at the dome in November 2005. Since then, other teams have informally contended there is artificial noise pumped into the dome.

The Colts have continually denied the accusations, and issued their strongest worded statement yet on Monday.

"We trust this will put an end to the ridiculous and unfounded accusations that the Colts artificially enhanced crowd noise at the RCA Dome in any way," the team said.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, no stranger to controversy, did not discuss those allegations during his regularly scheduled news conference Monday. Instead, Belichick said he was more concerned with communication problems he said existed between Patriots coaches and Brady.

"Basically, we didn't have a coach-to-quarterback operation, so we had to signal in all of the plays, which is unusual, but that's the way it was," he said. "What all was going on, I can't tell you, but I can tell you that, from a functional standpoint, the coach-to-quarterback was basically useless."

The latest accusations add yet another chapter to this already heated rivalry.

There have been complaints about leaving the field at Gillette Stadium uncovered the night before games and contentions Pats defenders were illegally holding receivers downfield.

Now there's crowd noise, communication issues and even something as simple as a postgame handshake between Colts coach Tony Dungy and Belichick, who quickly walked past Dungy as Dungy attempted to speak with him Sunday.
League Sides With Colts Over Crowd Noise

Quote:
"Bill is fine, he's a good guy, that's the way he is win or lose," Dungy said. "He's just an intense guy out there. I wouldn't describe it any way other than what it is."
You're too kind, Tony. The guy is the most classless prick in the league and if he quit tomorrow, the NFL would be better off.

This theory by Jeff Schulz in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution may establish the real culprit to be CBS Sports:

It’s bad enough outlets like ESPN skew news coverage to enhance their broadcast properties and artificially inflate ratings. But it’s mind-boggling and nauseating that a network would artificially pump crowd noise into a broadcast feed, as CBS may have done during the Patriots-Colts game Sunday. I mean, isn’t the game big enough? Do you really need to enhance the noise in a sold-out dome stadium? ... Networks have admitted this in past, even inserting chirping bird sounds during golf broadcasts. CBS has denied comment beyond the NFL statement, which was that the unusual noise was “tape feedback in the CBS production truck.”


You know what would be really cool? If CBS could, like, impose Godzilla or a swarm of locusts on the field! Then Tom Brady would have to fight through the pass rush AND MONSTERS. Of course, he’d still find Randy Moss in the end zone. But think of the ratings!

With all the dramatic music and dancing Fox Sports robots that are inflicted on viewers each week, it is a logical step for CBS to have decided the Game of the Century required Crowd Noise of the Century to remind us that the future of civilization was at stake last Sunday

And I thought I was the only one that finds those robots irritating.

Fox, ESPN and NBC all have very good quality High Def Broadcasts but for some reason CBS's is lousy. When they show the pictures of the huddles and the sidelines between plays the picture does not seem to be High Def. It looks sorta blocky. Has anyone else noticed this or is it possibly my local station screwing up the broadcast?
It may be your station, but more likely the HDTV signal feed is being compressed by your cable or satellite provider (I get pixelization on my DirecTV local stations HDTV signal that I do not get from the other HDTV signals, including Sunday Ticket, that are coming off different satellites).

My main beef with CBS is that it is still too cheap to buy enough HDTV equipment to broadcast all the games in HDTV - it usually is a Browns game in SD but now that the Bengals are awful it was Bills-Bengals last week. Hopefully the Steelers escape that with 8 games to go and 2 night games on ESPN and NFL Network.

I had a couple of family members attend this game and they said that you could not hear the noise inside the Dome.
