Today the Atlanta Falcons were fined and will lose a draft pick for having pumped in artificial crowd noise during games. Over the years a few other teams have been accused and investigated of this same action.
Have the Chargers ever done this at Qualcomm Staduim? According to Jim Trotter of ESPN they have, and not just one time.
if the nfl really wants to make the in-stadium experience more enjoyable, limit the artificial noise. it's ridiculously loud in qualcomm.— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) October 3, 2010
no team does artificial noise as loudly as qualcomm stadium. #oldmantweet— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) October 16, 2012
i think the chargers are going to set a world record for artificial noise.— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) October 15, 2013
the artificial noise to which i'm referring is the stuff the chargers pump through the speakers. clearly fake.— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) October 15, 2013
