No, sorry, that was more directed at the people who say that FedEx never pumps noise but don't offer any kind of explanation for what people like myself think they're hearing.
Like people who say things like:

Re: FedEx crowd noise

Now I wasn't at the game, but I know a really honest dude who is a season ticket holder, and he was appalled that they pump in fake noise.

Seems like this story keeps cropping up from time to time. I've heard this story more than once from different people.

I've never heard of a "12thMan" that wasn't at the game......sitting on your couch doesn't cut it......13th? It was probually you at the house screaming at the darn tv, where the mystery sound was coming from....? LOL

I go to ALL home games, sit in the 100 section. Have NEVER heard any such "fake crowd noise".......but lots of REAL CROWD NOISE!

Haha..that's funny! I'm the fake 12thMan!

No, he just mentioned that's all. I don't know, don't care.

Chances are though, if we're hearing different people from different souces saying the same thing, it could be true.

Re: FedEx crowd noise

I don't THINK I heard something. I KNOW it. There is a difference in sound between people being extra loud and sound coming from a speaker. Natural sound is much more diffused while the speaker sound is directed. I believe what was happening was the sound from the stadium was being fed through the speakers. It sound specifically like crowd noise. I have sat in those same seats for 3 years and never heard anything like it remotely. Even on the loudest days it never sounded like that. It happened.

My question is still...who cares? If there were people who couldn't tell I would say that is because the directed sound had little effect other than those directly in its path. The speakers I know sound came from was not pointed at the field. So i really think it did nothing but get the crowd going more. I have no problem with that.

Re: FedEx crowd noise

To all the people who refuse to accept the testimony of a large number of Redskin fans on this site:
You guys make me laugh. How can you discredit the first-hand experience from fans on this site? Everyone is lying, right? Even the people who sat right next to the speakers and confirmed it?

I was at the game, and I didn't hear anything. However, I believe my fellow Redskin fans when they say they did hear it. I'm not surprised it happened, and I don't care.

Another thing:
Not everyone is a sound professional, but we all have ears, and have been hearing sounds for 20, 30, 40, 50, or more years. I think that qualifies all of us to speak on this subject. Just because somebody isn't a sound technician, doesn't mean they don't know how to listen, or they don't know what they are hearing.

In response to those that are hyper sensitive about this issue, there are no liars here. If it happened, then it appears to be a one time occurance. Which leads me to believe that it was probably an accident.

If we did it on purpose, then while I wouldnt have resorted to that low, I hope we get away with it.

I just don't like this thread. It's a fact that there are too many lawyers in DC.

That is true enough... of course, I am only on this thread to document my hearing loss.... so I can get in on the class action suit and become a part owner of the Skins.

Re: FedEx crowd noise

Ok, it was me with my MR. Microphone which I purchased back in the 80's and a tapped into the sound system. Didn't you hear me say "Hey, Baby, I'll be back to pick you up at 8:00).

The offense likes to be able to hear the QB call audibles etc... if it is so loud they cannot hear him, then they have to go to hand signals... which are easier to miss and can lead to miscommunications on the field.

Re: FedEx crowd noise

They have been doing this for years and it is 1000% fact. I notice it everytime I am in the upper deck. In fact I seem to remember the year that Baltimore won, we were chastised for it.

Re: FedEx crowd noise

Just for sake of arguement, has anyone thought about the fact that any crowd noise heard from the speakers is in fact the crowd itself? Being an Electronics Engineer and knowing how ambient (background) sound is easily amplified, isn't it possible for the "crowd noise" heard from the speakers to possibly be the background noise picked up from inside a broadcast booth or the field mics? C'mon, with all of the microphones set up all over the stadium, isn't it probable that one or more of them actually pick up the crowd noise? Of course it would be amplified along with any announcements, referee calls, etc. that need to be heard. Unfortunately, without proper filtering, ALL sound recieved by microphones will be amplified. I just can't see the reasoning to purposely transmit "crowd noise" inside a stadium that has always been said to have the noisiest fans in the league! If you don't like the noise, stay on the couch while I stand up and add to the noise! Go Redskins!!
