Thought I was listening from the parking lot! I was cable in front of new tv! I have to defend Aaron Neville, Dr John and Aretha, it was sad tune and it was our national anthem. Was a great effort and the sound crew flubbed it. I could also notice the Rolling Stones having difficulties. People like to sensationalize and jump on non-normal bashing bandwagons, but let's all remember this is the USA and let's look deeper than a whiplash Monday morning talkshow topic. Besides, we got the Redskins here and they gonna win it all this year!!!
the crew sucked, but so did the performers. I've heard bad sound before and been able to ferret out the actual talent behind bad production. This wasn't the case here.

Dude, which National Anthem were you watching? It was flat out bad!

Re: Video Of SB National Anthem

Sense I started this threed I guess I have to give my 2cents worth. I heard it live while driving to a SB party and it sounded alot worse over the radio. I have mixed sound in my past and will have to say that alot of blame has to go to the sound crew. I'm not saying that AF and JN did the great job on the anthem but I feel its hard to tell with the poor sound mix. To me it sounded like a cheap church PA system and I hope the NFL never has that crew mix sound for any more of their events.

When I herd it over the radio it sound as if there was only one singer and the drums were very loud. I think radio had a direct feed from the sound board which will sound different because you can mix that feed different than what is coming out over the PA feed and it was not mixed very well.

You also have to wonder how well Ford Field is built to handle acoustics. It kind of sounded like they were playing in a public restroom.

Wow I just tried to listen to it. . . . but couldn't take it. That sounded like the opening for a third grade talent show.

I agree with you!!! The sound could have been mixed better but it was still the national anthem things don't always have to be so dry and traditional.... variety is the spice of life..
