    There's your solution! The home team gets penalized if the stadium is "too loud".

    I knew this went into effect, but I didn't know if was still in force.

    Why isn't it called? It would shut those pricks in Indy up.

    It was a rule for a couple of years, during which people realized how absolutely absurd it is.

    It is. Kind of forgot about it though.

    EDIT: I'm looking at the Official 2007 NFL Yearbook now, and on the front page it has the rule changes. It says that the crowd noise violations have been eliminated for 2007. But here's what they were in 2006:

    It used to be, but it no longer is. Games were getting absurd.... a QB would be standing back in shotgun formation and turn to the ref and sort of raise his arms in an "I can't hear" gesture... the ref would stop the game and threaten the crowd with a 5 year defensive delay of game penalty... it would create ridiculous breaks in the game...

    I always thought it was a dumb penalty. Its called a "Home Field Advantage" for a reason. Now, intentionally piping in crowd noise, whole different can of worms. But if you have an awesome home field advantage, no need to punish the paying customer.

    Well then they ought to give visiting teams helmets with microphones for all the offensive players...

    home advantage is one thing. creating an environment where the QB can't audible or communicate in any way with anyone is ridiculous.

    They should have a Polian Proximity penalty , whereupon if Bill Polian is spotted anywhere within a 50 mile radius of an NFL arena on gameday, the Colts forfeit the game and all their draft picks.

    THAT would immediately clean up the NFL

    That was a rule at one point that I always thought was lame. It's all part of home field advantage.
