Has anyone else noticed this in games so far this year? It seems like in years past, they did a better job of dimming down the crowd noise so that you could hear the commentators. So far this year, I can hardly hear a word the announcers are saying over the background noise. It was especially bad in the KC/SD game, as Arrowhead is incredibly loud. It's pretty annoying. Turning the volume up doesn't help because that just makes the crowd noise louder--it almost makes it more difficult to hear the announcers. Maybe I've just been to one too many concerts and my hearing is going, but in any case, it really annoys me.

Arrowhead is just ridiculously loud. Nothing they could do. I enjoy a good crowd though. I miss the days of the Vet. The linc doesnt have that same home field advantage.

Personally, I would much rather hear crowd noise than the commentators. Especially during important points in the game where the crowd is getting loud.

Well, that's the thing, I've had the same problem during other games too. (but maybe they were college games, come to think of it).

To some extent, I agree with this. But it's annoying when you hear them talking over the crowd noise, but have no idea what they're saying. They may as well not say anything at all at that point.

Does your TV have a "surround sound" option? If so, make sure it's "off". Last year I had the smae problem until I noticed that setting and adjusted it.

Is there a way to turn up the crowd noise? Becuase that is seriously much more exciting to me than the commentators...especially Trent Dilfer (he was doing the KC game, right?)

I had the same problem listening to the Jets game on the radio on my way home. You couldn't hear the play by play until after the play was over. The way the announcer was fading out during the play but coming back after the play ended made me think it was a problem with the way he was speaking into the mike while the play was happening though. It was frustrating because you really couldn't tell who had the ball or quite what was going on.

Yeah, it's a way worse problem when you're listening to the game on the radio--the announcers are all you have at that point. That must have sucked.

Hmm, not sure. I'll look into this. Thanks ;)

Um, yeah. And if you'd read the thread, you'd have realized you're late to the party with this wise crack. Nice effort though. I almost laughed.

Yeah, it could be if you're using the surround sound? Are you piping it through the stereo or just through the TV speakers?

Attended the SD KC game. It was LOUD and pretty wet also. 4 or 5 plays the crowd noise most definitely disrupted the Chargers O. Announcers can go jump in a lake.

I think both... But my surround sound has been screwed up for a while (only a few of the speakers work); I've no idea how to fix it, and been too lazy to get someone over here to do it for me. I might just turn the surround sound off altogether and see if that helps.

That could definitely help. Or if you know how to adjust the speakers you can try turning the center channel up.

I have earned some real enemies like ignoratio elechi. As you can see his comments are over the top rude, pugnacious and vitriolic. Moreover, there are posters end up being trolls, IE is another great example of this.

Has anyone mentioned that listening to the crowd noise is preferable to listening to the commentary yet? If not, I'd like to.

:goodposting: I wish NFL Network would just air games w/o their crappy broadcast teams and just let the viewer watch the game with the crowd noise - let them experience the game like they would at the stadium. I thought ESPN did that once for a college game - maybe a Duke basketball game.

I want to admit that this thread is all about me me me, and I am being as narcissistic as I could possibly be.


It's timschochet, this is just what he does. He thinks his opinion is more important than others (though he would never admit this) so instead of continuing the conversation in the other thread he starts his own.


If you're misinformed on a subject, avoid posting. Please.
