A crowd of fans at a recent football game got so excited that their cheers registered as an earthquake.

Quote

Stadium staff are adamant that the free half-time ecstasy slurpees had nothing to do with the cheers.

I live in seattle, we actually broke the record this game for loudest crowd. 137.6 dB's. Kinda cool to see the home football team on here.

Wow. That's amazing.

My wife yelled at me so loud one time that the weather people were puzzled by sounds of thunder in a clear blue sky. :w00t:

They tried to set a new noise decible record at a sporting event today in their game against ther 49ers, not sure if they broke ther record , havent heard yet. Guiness was thereto authenticate their record achievement. The opposing  teams have to wear earplugs, and have problems communicating. This is one place where home field really is an advantage.

I have heard that this has and can be a real problem with the quarterback making calls over the noise of the crowd.

Not sure if the NFL has addressed this issue, or if they even can.

I do know that pro golfing has a "rule of silence" during play(i.e. tee-off, etc..). But that's a much lower crowd attendence.

Not sure if this could even work for stadium-crowded football.

My team likes passing back to the Goalie, 15 times on Saturday and when he kicked it out it went to the opposition 13 times,and we lost 2-1, when will they ever learn.
