    What kind of limitations are there on sound making devices that can be brought into Gillette Stadium?

    Air horn?
    Cowbell?
    Those long plastic horns that soccer fans blow with?

    Interested in what other fans have tried and what the security enforces.

    Not allowed on all three counts.

    Of course, since everyone will have about 16 layers of clothes on for Sunday, and they still only have time to do a simple pat-down, you can pretty much get anything in there.

    Hey, Indy fans tried all means and ways possible to disrupt the Charger offense and those did not work. Gillette is an open stadium so that noise/sound gets dissipated quickly. Whereas, a dome traps noise/level longer.

    The Charger offense practice underwater with multiple sonars blaring. Philip says, "Bring it on!"

    :D

    I remember a guy down in front of me at the snow bowl game against the Raiders who had two compressed air horns, one in each hand, and used them every time Oakland had the ball. Can you imagine the sound of a stadium full of those things?

    I got in with my knife once, not intentionally though. I carry it everywhere, except into the stadium (except this once). It was given to me by my best friend the last time we went out before he was killed in a car accident. I usually leave it in the car when we go to the stadium, but forgot earlier this year. I realized I had it halfway to the stadium and shoved it in the little poket they put in the front pocket of jeans. They don't really give you that great of a pat-down anyway. Especially when you know the normal drill and have your cellphone out and opened and your hat in your hand as you get to the gate.


    Back on topic, the only noisemaker you need is free, a healthy set of lungs. Scream dude! SCREAM! :rocker:

    If LdT breaks off a long run, the staduim sound system is prepared to immediately start playing "I'm So Pretty," and when LdT stops to preen and bow, Vince WIlfork will flatten him from behind.

    Pins are okay.

    Just drop them on the ground every once in a while, the stadium will be louder than usual. :)

    Besides, why even bother? Everybody already assumes that San Diego loses by 14 points.

    You're very smart for saying that.

    A method I started to use last week was leaning over and banging with my hands on the back support portion of the seat in front of me. (Insert joke here)

    Seriously, I encourage more people to do it. It makes a lot of noise and there's nothing security can do about it. If everyone is standing up, you can lean over and do this, and still you won't miss the action. I shouldn't have to say, but I will anyway, that the person in front of you needs to be standing for this to work.

    Again, it makes a lot of noise. Try it out.

    I was smart without saying it too.

    Yes, the sound that was reverberating off the domed roof of Gillette Stadium.

    What a sad, embittered man you must be. Perhaps you should go to IndyStar and leave the discussions here to folks whose teams are still playing. That way you can commiserate over your bad fortune with fellow losers. :bricks:

    Just put Bill Polian in the press box with a hidden mike and show him 3 hours of Patriots highlights. Or pehaps a replay of their last game. That'll generate a lot of noise.
