Default Indy Dome Crowd Noise

Anybody else hear about the issue that Indy pipes in the crowd noise when opponents have the ball and not when their offense has it. Heard it on Dan Patrick's show and I believe there was something about it in the Post Gazette. Anyone else hear this? I consider it cheating and if they actually do it, should forfeit all their home games due to it.

It's pretty shady if it's true, but as for forfieting games....naw, I don't think that's the answer. They could have pumped in "Eye of the Tiger" whenever Pittsburgh had the ball, Monday, and our team still would have gotten their asses kicked. Noise wasn't the problem.

You only hear about crap like this when you put a roof over the field. The Twins/Vikings ran in to a similar problem a few years ago when teams complained that they turned on their exhaust fans to aid them and hurt the opponents.

This last baseball season, you may remember it as my Buccos' 13th-straight loser, there was an issue with the roof covering Enron, er, MinuteMaid Park. Too niosy, they Sox complained, and that was without doctoring the sound.

So what should sports leagues do?

Get rid of the damn roofs, except for nuetral sites like the SB, and a lot of this crap goes away. Quit being wusses and sit your asses outside to watch the game.

No, no, I know the Steelers lost to the better team that night, it just irks me that this team that has asperations to go undefeated could be being aided by artificial noise, and if so I do think something should be done about it by the league. I posted in the blast furnace a conversation between Colt fans that they talk about the piped in noise. It is in the you got what you deserved thread towards the end if you want to see it.

*sigh* It's not true. I was there, and have been there alot since 1995, and can tell you we don't need to resort to crap like that. The RCA dome is small and, duh, is a dome. All the noise that is generated from the crowd bounces right back onto the field. I've been there when it was embarrasing quiet during the lean years and loud like last year's playoff game against Denver. I'm still hoarse from Monday night.

So, do you think the noise is the reason you only gained 84yds rushing?

(Bigger Sigh)

Poor Indy...ESPN must just be making this all up for ratings, then? The NFL is investigating this, and it seems there might be some fire behind all this smoke.

Nobody here is saying the Steelers would have won, fake crowd noise or not, but it's still wrong if it's going on. Has it occurred to you that this has possibly been going on for years, other years when the Colts weren't 11-0 and in the spotlight?

If the crowd was miked or not the noise was a huge factor in the Steelers not run blocking or pass blocking. They couldnt get off the field.
