Piping in noise is pretty lame. Additionally, if you had snazzy enough setup, you could theoretically focus the sound wherever you wanted to, bombing the QB with out of phase sounds that could get annoying. link

Of course, Tom Brady is superman this year so he was able to shake it off...

CBS already cleared the Colts of wrong-doing in this case hours ago.

let's try this again

The NFL is looking into allegations that the Indianapolis Colts piped in noise during the game Sunday between the Colts and the Patriots. The charge comes after Patriots President Jonathan Kraft became the latest NFL team executive to accuse the Colts of the distracting tactic that is against the rules.

"We're aware of it and we're looking into it," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday. "It may just be the TV feed from CBS, but we're checking it out."

Observers at the game said there seemed to be a "skip" in the sound during the game Sunday, which the Patriots won 24-20. That might confirm the long-held suspicion among many people in the NFL that the Colts play loud crowd noise to help distract opponents when the other team is on offense.




Hmmmmm... "Bending the rules" by playing mega-amplified, pre-recorded crowd noise to gain an unfair advantage against an opponent while the opponent is on offense?????

Maybe the Patriots aren't the ONLY team participating in "gamesmanship"... NOW, let's see if the high-and-mighty Colts are dragged through the mud the same way the 'EVIL' Patriots were over cameragate.


You are above this. :-° :-°

If it was a CBS thing, then I agree, crowd-noise talk must now die... Sorry if I annoyed anyone... as I said in another topic, I think I'm feeling defensive about all the national backlash to current Boston team success, and Lof hit the nail on the head in the other thread that put it in perspective (thanks, Lof).

However, as long as Yoda continues to post Milli Vanilli lyrics... I say THIS THREAD MUST NOT DIE!!!! :-D

I don't see how Pats video taping signals is the same as the Colts apparently NOT doing anything wrong... But anyway:

Blame it on the rain that was falling, falling
Blame it on the stars that did shine at night
Whatever you do don't put the blame on you
Blame it on the rain yeah yeah
