Everybody Cheats...Even the Colts

Postby Kilroy » Mon Nov 05, 2007 9:27 am

From the Sporting News:

4. Milli Vanilli moment in Indy?

In the past, teams that have visited the RCA Dome have questioned whether the Colts pipe in artificial crowd noise in an effort to disrupt the road team's offense. Though the Colts have denied any such chicanery (thanks, Tiki), the suspicions remain.

And the suspicions will only grow stronger after Sunday's game against the Patriots. During the first play of the fourth quarter, the noise from the crowd contained a strange effect. It almost sounded like my kid was working the "Whammy Bar" while playing Guitar Hero.

We don't know whether that noise could be heard in the stadium, but it was obvious on the television broadcast. And it invites speculation as to whether the Colts are indeed piping in phony music -- and whether there was a malfunction of some sort on Sunday that offered proof of it.

It is funny because the the broadcasters had remarked earlier in the game how it was "amazing" how the Colts fans were so loud when the other team was on the field, but silent when Manning was on the field. :-b

Wow, how classic is this.

Colts fans were the main people jeering at the Pats earlier this year about how the Colts team was so classy. Piping crowd noise is worse then stealing signals. If that noise was heard inside the RCA dome, then its pretty clear they were cheating.

How come the mainstream media is not picking up on this?

I also noticed this. Nantz and Simms were commenting on how awesome the Indy fans are to keep the noise up for so long during the games and be so quiet when Manning is on the field.

I also noticed the weirdo sound during the game too. It sounded like something (a sound clip or something) was caught looping or something and then quickly faded out. I thought it might have been then broadcast (CBS's fault) but Nantz was calling the play and he sounded fine at the time. It was really, really, really strange.

People are saying in the youtube comments they were at the game and it sounded fine and this was a CBS problem. But if it was in fact a CBS problem with their on field sound feed why did Nantz sound fine through it? Usually sound problems broadcast side involve resetting ALL the feeds when one loops or screws up. Had one of CBS's on field mics malfunctioned they most likely would have reset everything including commentator feed. This never happened which is a strong indication this was not a CBS error in my opinion.

This is retarded, I was at the game and didn't hear anything like that. If any of you ever came to the dome or the city itself on gamedays you'd realize its just nuts. Then throw in the fact that yesterday was basically the biggest regular season game ever and it was even more nuts. I had to call in to work today because I barely have a voice. I laughed that they reported this and "weren't sure if it was like that in person but it sure sounded like it on TV". Gimme a break...

I'm curious (just a curiosity, not anything important)... did any Colts players or coaches speak up about the Patriots stealing signs? Anyone got a link to something like that?
