    Sounded pretty good on TV. My father was there (using my tickets :mad:) and he said it was loud. What did you guys think, especially the folks at the game?

    I'm just curious, I'm not trying to insinuate or instigate anything. :cool:

    I thought it sounded loud, and then several times I took the remote, and turned the sound up and it sounded even louder. At one point, in, I wanna say the second quarter, the phone rang and so I hit "mute". That was the only time it got eerily silent, although I could hear the person on the phone (my bookie Louie The Snake) just fine. :)

    EDIT: I don't really have a bookie. That was inserted for entertainment purposes only. :)

    At the beginning I thought I was at a funeral - it picked up after the first Bronco fumble. Got really loud towards the 2nd half (especially when the cameras picked up Randy dancing).

    I thought the crowd was great, especially for an early season game. I think a lot of regulars sold their tickets though and their was a lot more fights and people being taken out than I have ever seen at Gillette

    I felt it was about the same....maybe a little louder as the rout went on.

    Best moment was when the entire defense starting dancing during a time out with music blaring (3rd quarter I think) which got the crowd up and into it and loud - this will be featured on Patriots All Access this weekend - DON'T MISS IT!!

    It was loud in the restroom and on the concourse before the game even started. Lots of alcohol flowed in the preceding hours.

    Now THAT was bizarre. I've never seen anything like that in 45 years of watching football. I thought to myself that this will just piss off Denver, and sure enough they nearly drove the length of the field. I hope BB spanked them for it the next day.

    YUP! My sister, brother & sister in law, and I were dancing along with everyone else. The crowd was great, the game was great. I feel pretty lucky, being this was only my second time attending a regular season game.

    From a perspective of watching it on TV, it was nice and loud. Hopefully it can be kept up for the rest of the year!

    I was there. And at one point my Father turned me and said you know what maybe this crowd is lame as he thought it was quite. I said this is about what it always is. As fans we are very spoiled and thus we don't cheer non-stop regardless of the outcome like real hungry fans may but we cheer when a cheer is called for (after big plays, key defensive moments, and when things are going really well like vs Denver). The crowd was no better or worse monday there was just more to cheer.


    In our crowds defense we are not as dumb as other crowds. Very rarely do we cheer our offense, we let them work (only exception being the First Down call from the announcer). Last week in San Diego they were consistantly cheering their offense, and not just after big plays, at the start of drives and on key 3rd down moments, it was pretty dumb of their fans.

    The players were playing with engery and they were contantly trying to get the fans energized between plays. After a while they were all Energizer Bunnies.

    That is how I saw it. At home, my energy level fell to my ankles when Rodney got taken off on the cart.:(

    Thanks for the feedback, all. Sounds pretty good in general.

    If only my dad the viking wasn't so embarassing. ;) :D

    Yeah, we're the dumb fans. :rolleyes: How about 3/4 of Gillette missing by the start of the 4th quarter? That's what we call a Boston Fire Drill. You guys complain about SD not selling out games? Well, at least we stay to watch our team til the end. And you were winning big time...I don't get it. Oh, it's cold and late, guess we can go home now. Were they all out of lattes at the concesion stands?

    East Coast MNF games end around midnight, whereas West Coast night games end around 9:00. Also, in Foxboro it takes forever to get out of traffic.

    Yeah, I get the time difference and I always thought it must suck to be sports fan on the east coast. But cmon...Monday night game, nationally televised, your whooping a conference opponent, and you leave because of traffic??? That's beyond weak. How much do tickets cost? I'd be soaking up every minute of that win and watching my team play well. I can see fans pouring out if your getting beat, but why would you leave when you're winning?? If you dont plan to stay the whole game, why even go? To be honest, it made your fan base look very bad IMO.

    Actually I was at the Chargers game last week and there were tons of Charger fans leaving early as well. People have things to do and not everyone is going to stick around when a game has already been decided. as another poster pointed out our games end 3 hours after yours so our fans were leaving around midnight yours were leaving around 9 hmmmm.

    Although I don't leave early, give the working class fans a break. It takes around 90 minutes to get outa the lots and route 1. Then maybe an hour's drive home. People here have jobs. Going to bed around 2:30 AM is not conducive to good job performance the next day.

    That's simply not true and you know it. I was at the game as well. Sure, a few fans left (mostly NE fans from where I was sitting), but there definitely was not an exodus of fans where you could see large sections of vacant seats. What do you have to do, other than go home and go to bed? Again, you know the game is scheduled to run to midnight, so if that's past your bedtime, why bother? The time difference is a cop out. You're used to games ending late over there. That's part of life, is it not?

    Oh no, it is true. Maybe the numbers were not equal (but the 3 hour difference explains that and maybe the numbers of fans leaving your game were more pats but all that really means is that we had more Pats fans at your stadium not exactly a good sign of your oh so great fan base.

    The truth is that after Belichick decided not to go for the onside kick about a 1/4 of the stadium got up and headed for the exits. if you tivo the games I am sure it would show up on TV just the same as ours did. Now I guess this still wasnt as early as the start of the 4th quater but still as I said in a earlier post not everyone is going to stick around once the game has been decided, I don't think this has anything to do with how good a fan you are its just prefrence, you can gloat over your win anywhere in your seats watchinf meaningless football, on the way back to the car, sitting by the car drinking a few more, or you can get home quick to try and read about the win and watch the presser's, or you can just go to bed at an almost normal time and actually be able to discuss it at work the next day instead of being comotose.
