NFL eases up on restricting crowd noise

As the NFL continues to make games more fun for the fans in the stands, the league is allowing teams to encourage fans to make more noise.

In the past, the league has frowned on attempts by the home teams to rile up their fans to make noise, on the theory that it’s unfair to the road team’s offense to create an atmosphere so loud that they can’t call out their signals. But according to the Associated Press, the NFL is now allowing teams to use video scoreboards to encourage crowd noise at all times.

The league has also said teams can use audio to encourage crowd noise until 20 seconds remain on the play clock. In the past, any audio used to encourage crowd noise had to stop with 30 seconds left on the play clock.

Although TV ratings are very strong, the NFL is concerned that fans are increasingly choosing the home experience over the stadium experience and has been looking for ways to make fans enjoy attending games more. The league is also requiring teams to put cameras in the locker rooms to give fans in the stadium the opportunity to see what goes on before the game and at halftime, and home teams are required to show the best replay angles in the stadium video boards for all plays that may be reviewed.

From what I've heard about the BOA atmosphere, this might not be panther related.

The crowd can definitely be loud when they want to, went to the Falcons game last year and the crowd was amped.

I've been at games in BOA stadium where the noise was deafening... this was pre-2010 and we're still working our way back to that.

STOP YELLING!!! SIT DOWN!!!

I'd rather be a football fan at home than try to be one at BoA. This isn't a freakin' opera. The two games I've been to I've had to listen to the above.

My first thought was, now that this is a rule, kinda, you would make sure everyone obeyed it. Use his own rule against the Man. Now, I am wondering why you even came to mind? Ungrateful cuss. [size=1]jk[/size]

Oh great, we can now be encouraged to make more noise at the game... But wait, you will have to do so sitting down and do it politely or you will get kicked out. BOA stadium has to be the biggest choir boy fest I have ever seen.

I'm not a big fan of forced noise at games.

I used to make noise but in BOA, it's really not allowed. After years of going to games and making noise and getting into trouble I now try to contain myself. At playoff games however it's on and those fans don't care.
