    From Florio's Live Blog:

    A reader points out something we noticed -- right before the pick, the crowd noise sounded funny. It almost sounded like there was a skip in the artificial crowd noise.

    I assume that was a CBS issue. It got too quiet.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    Is this reader at the game (I know, dumb question), or watching on TV? It could be just an audio correction... you watch almost any game, and periodically there is a split second pause as a correction is made to match the audio to video. I'll leave it to someone who understands this to explain, as something to do with different timing standards between A and V. But you can't go by anything you hear over TV... it could just as likely be bad TV than bad live sound.

    Maybe but the announcers and some other noises didn't studder. Just the crowd. And actually after it did that, the crowd noise hasnt been as loud.

    I have this mental image of that Milli Vanilli concert from about 20 years ago...

    <Crowd Noise>... skip... <repeat>... skip... <repeat>... skip... <repeat>...

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    I heard it as well. It sounded like the crowd was on some milli-vanilli type stuff. I believe I heard a sound independent of the crowd noise skipping.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    I need to clarify. I heard the crowd noise skipping, I also heard a noise not the crowd noise not skipping. Lol that still doesn't sound right. I don't think it was CBS.

    Definitely heard by more than you guys on here - half of an NFL forum in the UK heard it too.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    So did I. It's awfully d*** suspicious for a team that's been accused of it in the past.

    BTW--I sent a question to Reiss about it for his mailbag. Maybe he'll address it this week. :)

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    Is there any way that we as Pats fans can make enough "noise" to the media? It would be nice if the Colts can be exposed for cheating too. Polian is a snake! I would love to see him get in trouble with the league.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    For some reason my DVR cut off halfway through the game, so I can't listen to it again. But the first time around, it definitely sounded suspect. There's no mistaken it was an artificial noise, whether it was on CBS end or artificial crowd noise, I don't know.

    the stuttering crowd noise was during the Moss catch JUST before the brakket INT.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    Pats are now the best team in the NaPolian Football League. Can't sneeze near a wide receiver? Just sign Moss, Stallworth, and Welker. Good work, front office. :rocker:

    The NFL should fine the Colts a 1st round pick for cheating.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    I heard it to at that exact moment.

    I also noticed the only thing stuttering was the crowd noise.

    Everything else was normal.

    Someone needs to YouTube it!

    I wonder how long the Colts have been doing this crap!

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    That's actually not the spot I was thinking of. I can't remember when it happened, I'll try and see how much my DVR did get before I cut off.

    But what I do hear when I listen to that mp3 is two layers of crowd noise, one definitely sounds canned. Let me preface this with that I edit video (and therefore audio) for a living, and part of that means the laborious task of cutting roomtone, which is exactly what it it sounds like - creating a dull, ambient buzz to give the audio consistency. And if you listen closely to that mp3 you played, I'm pretty sure you can hear a repetitive consistent crowd noise underneath the real crowd noise and Simms talking.

    The "skipping noise" (again, I can't catch it in the clip you played, I heard it elsewhere) sounded like "roomtone" gone bad, as in, canned noise playback malfunctioning.

    Is pumping crowd noise illegal? I guess I don't see why it wouldn't be. I think it's lame, but I wouldn't call it cheating. I would like to see the Colts get called out for it since everyone assumes Saint Dungy would be against gaining an advantage in such a way.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    It wasn't that Play. It was on the Moss catch a play or two earlier. The crowd is really loud, then as soo as Moss catches is, the sound like stutters over and over again. But the announcers are not studdering at all.

    Then all of a sudden the sound goes away and the crowd noise is all of a sudden half what it was.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    That would be hilarious. But don't count on it. The NFL does not want the PR of it's two best teams being docked draft picks (and lets face it, Indy is still far and away #1B, today was close enough to not really know for sure who is the best yet).

    Hopefully this can be the media leeches' witch hunt for the next two weeks. They need something to talk about with the Patriots having next weekend off.

    Re: More Polian shenanigans -- artificial crowd noise?

    :rofl:

    I just listened to it.

    Fell off my chair laughing.

    I'll get the audio up in a second. It can best be compared to the sound of a truck idling or the sound when your computer audio skips before you get a blue screen.
