    Is anbody else finding it very annoying to watch SNF when all you hear is the crowd in the background. Its practically impossible to hear anything Madden and Michaels are saying. Hearing nothing but people screaming makes is awful hard to watch the game.

    Why can't networks just keep the presentation of games simple. One thing that really bothers me is when they have video of players introducing the offenses defenses at the beginning of the game, and they make the video of the actual game really small so you can see the videos of the players introducing themselves.

    I don't need to hear enhanced crowd noise or mic'd up players. Is it too much to ask to be able to just watch a game without having cameras zoomed in super close on players, enhanced noise, and celebrities in the booth every five minutes?

    Honestly, Fox is my least channel to watch a game on.

    Their graphics are ugly, the music is somewhat cheesy and they don’t provide the play by play stats as CBS does, which I love.

    I don’t mind MNF to be honest. I find Tony funny.

    NBC's coverage sucks...that's a given....

    Enhancing crowd noise? ...No the NBC sound techs are too dumb to balance the crowd noise enough to where you can hear the announcers

    I despise the whole crew. Especially Kornheiser. Give me Michaels and Madden over those trained monkeys any day.

    ESPN basically admitted to enhancing crowd noise on a MNF pre-game show.

    They were talking about the Colts mini-scandal then one of them made reference to channels, including themselves doing the same thing. But covered it up in sarcasm after to avoid heat from the company of course.

    I think some of us are just being too critical. I think the SNF broadcast team is doing well.

    I'd rather have the crowd noise and the cameras on the players and all the commentators say are who's in and out / eligible receivers / etc. I agree... I don't need to see who's at the game and I don't need madden to tell me about stats... I can find all that stuff here :D

    At least the crowd noise in Pittsburgh was REAL and not like in the RCA Dome

    Better than I could say of many Patriots fans at Gillette who become stone cold quiet when the Patriots allow a TD or are behind on the scoreboard.

    The Patriots have the QUIETEST stadium in the league from what I hear on TV when the team is behind or gives up a TD.

    I know some here refuse to acknowledge this but my ears don't lie and I watch tons of NFL games and ours is the quietest IMO.

    I really wish we had louder fans.

    Of course, it could be due to how the stadium was built and the acoustics, I don’t know.

    Always being the second most beloved team in the state doesn’t help much.
