    I think he means the loudest stadium, not the hottest. Arrowhead is probably the loudest because it's an older stadium. The newer designed stadiums like Gillette tend not to carry sound as well as the older ones. Therefore, older stadiums like Arrowhead, Giants Stadium, and Ralph Wilson Field tend to be a bit louder.

    I heard the Colts stadium is pretty loud. Especially when they are pumping artificial crowd noise into the place to act as a distraction for visiting teams.

    Arrowhead is make-your-ears-bleed loud. You can not truly appreciate it on TV, it is simply unreal. And what stunned me even more, and I never noticed on TV... the crowd doesn't wait for third down to get loud. Those nutcases are on their feet screaming and stomping every single defensive down.

    It's not just the stadium, it's the fans. My uncle who took me to the game refused to let me out of the house in my normal, brown leather jacket... he would not let me go, and sit in his seats unless I was wearing at least a red KC jacket. And he was deadly serious. That's why you always see a sea of red in the stands at Arrowhead. The KC fanbase is diehard.

    and in pre-season too (like against STL) the crowd was VERY VERY LOUD.

    when i see their stadium full of people everyone with a red KC jacket...wow...

    i remember that also MIN was very loud (i remember one evening i was on NFL com listening to a NE @ MIN game and when Bledsoe was in the rumour was so loud i was unable to listen...)

    I couldn't agree with you more.Arrowhead is always a living hell for visiting teams.Teams must bring their A game in all phases of the game to have a shot at winning in Arrowhead.Visiting teams also has to deal with The Sea Of Red @ Arrowhead.I would love for the Razor to be just as loud as Arrowhead this year.

    I had heard so much about Arrowhead but when I went to the Patriots game there several years ago, I wasn't that impressed. The only thing I have to compare it to is Memorial Stadium in Lincoln and I don't think it was any louder than that.

    Doesn't it actually have a retractable roof or is that the field?

    I don't know about the roof, but I had heard that the field actually rolls out into the parking lot which is pretty sweet.

    Personal Ear Ringing Level:
    Pitts Game @ Three Rivers Stadium - No ringing the next day
    Rock/Rap/Metal concert - 1 day
    Robert Plant concert where I was stuck right in front of a stack of speakers - 2 days
    KC Game @ Arrowhead - 3 days. No **** my ears were ringing for three whole days.

    Did the Pats get the lead early? Was it a meaningless game or something? I was blown away by the volume and the intensity.

    No, actually the Chiefs had the lead early and Vinatieri missed the winning kick in the final seconds. IMO it was still no louder than a Nebraska game.

    Echoing T-Shirt, if Arrowhead is the loudest --- I haven't been, but I'll take people's word for it --- then Heinz Field is pretty surely #2. It never quiets down for a minute, and the constant noise level is WAY HIGH.

    I gotta give another vote to arrowhead. I have been to Arrowhead, Giants stadium, Old foxboro, Gillette, and a bunch of college stadiums. Arrowhead was hands down the loudest. One stadium that surprised me was Mountaineer Field. Good friend goes to WVU so i visted when they were playing Pitt. Very very loud.

    From all I've heard, Arrowhead is the loudest but Denver is also up there.

    Never been to Arrowhead so I can't comment on it although people have told me it is the loudest. Invesco at Mile High for the Playoff game was pretty damm loud. They have those upper deck that hold in the noise . The oldtimers say it is nowhere near as loud as the old Mile High. However I didn't think their fans were better than ours for our Playoff games. In fact in the section I sat in they sat down during the games :eek: I don't remember ever sitting down in my section at Gillette during a playoff game.

    I may get somes folk's panties in a bunch over this but IMO the Gillette crowd is horrible. During the playoffs or when an Indy or Pitt come in, the decibal level goes up a notch. But most of the time the crowd is totally uninvolved.

    When the Pat's score a TD, half the crowd applauds like their at tennis match.

    Very little disruption via noise occurs during opposing teams possession.

    I've sat in that stadium with friends cheering my vocal chords off and have had these "clappers" look at us like we have three heads.

    People blame it on the red seat crowd, but that's about 6000 folks out a 68,000 seat stadium.

    I think alot of folks here in NE look at KC, Pitt and Green Bay fans as a bunch of uncultured yahoos and our puritanical history genetically prevents folks from cutting loose and not caring what other people think.

    We may consider ourselves the most knowledgeable and dedicated fans but we definitely lack the ability to cut loose and enjoy games as they should be enjoyed.

    BTW-Gillette is a much more enclosed design than Arrowhead so the Gillette should be much louder.

    I couldn't agree with you more Slagathor. I try making noise from my nose-bleeds but have to stop because I sound like an idiot when I'm the only one yelling in my section. The crowd at Gillette Stadium sucks unless Peyton is on the field.

    The loudest place I've ever been was Heinz Field when we played Pittsburgh in the 2004 AFCC game. NOTE TO ANYONE GOING TO GILLETTE THIS YEAR: Yell on third down when the other team has the ball. Even during the preseason games, Pats defenders were waving their arms for crowd noise and people did not respond. It's possible that we will have a dominant team this year which can mean lopsided wins breeding fan apathy. DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN AGAIN LIKE IT DID LAST YEAR! Remember Seymour complaining about lack of crowd noise after the Jets game? That was embarrassing.
