Beyond Embarrassing

Loudest stadiums in the Shield – Century Link in Seattle. Arrowhead in KC. And that MADHOUSE down in the ATL.

I don’t know why the Falcons are building a new stadium; the one they’ve got right now makes it hell on the opposing offenses. Especially when Atlanta pipes in crowd noise to dial up the decibels.

The NFL is investigating whether the Falcons used fake fans and blared crowd sound during games over the past 2 seasons.

Owner Arthur Blank has already owned up- saying what happened was wrong, calling it “beyond embarrassing.” And it is.

That team plays in a dome… and they have players like Julio Jones, and their fans still can’t get excited enough on their own. So bush league.

Even worse- there are so many visiting fans in the house that Matt Ryan has to use a silent count. And yes, of course if the Patriots had done this it would be a bigger deal. Because the pats win. Atlanta does this – and they lose anyway that’s why nobody really cares. And that’s why it’s beyond embarrassing. They could set up jet engines, Slayer shows and Yoko Ono right next to the other team’s huddle- and it still won’t matter.

I’m sure they’re not the only team that does it – but I bet they’re the only team that does it and goes 3-5 at home.

If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying and it’s only cheating if you get caught. But the worst kind of cheating is when you get caught and it doesn’t even work. And right now how many other cheating teams are wondering if they should come clean too? Probably every last one of them.
