NFL Stadiums Will Enjoy "Liberalized" Rules On Creating Crowd Noise in 2012

"The at-home experience has gotten better and cheaper, while the in-stadium experience feels like it hasn't," said Eric Grubman, the NFL's executive vice president of ventures and business operations. "That's a trend that we've got to do something about." In hopes that professional football can mimic the wild stadium atmosphere typical of college football games, the NFL says it has "liberalized" its restraints on crowd noise. Stadiums will now be free to rile up crowds with video displays, and public-address announcers will no longer be restrained from inciting racket when the opposing offense faces a crucial third down.

Hey Kevin,

Thank you for posting this.

What a lame decision the NFL has made, in my opinion. Creating crowd noise -- good grief.
