Atlanta Falcons Busted for Pumping in Fake Crowd Noise Through Speakers [VIDEO]
I personally think this is way more messed up than Deflategate ever could be.
I am a huge sports fan. I love the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Stars and Baltimore Orioles. I try to go to as many games as I possibly can. I am also that guy that stands up and gets loud during the game. As long as my team is the home team. When I go up to Oklahoma City for Mavericks games or Arlington for Orioles games, I try to sit down.
I truly believe home field advantage is something that helps every sports team. I actually believe the louder a stadium gets can help your team and hurt the other. This is why I think what the Atlanta Falcons have been doing the past two years is messed up.
”I think what we’ve done in 2013 and 2014 was wrong. Anything that affects the competitive balance and fairness on the field, we’re opposed to, as a league, as a club and as an owner. It’s obviously embarrassing but beyond embarrassing it doesn’t represent our culture and what we’re about” said Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank.
The NFL is currently investigating to whether the allegations are true to whether the Atlanta Falcons pumped in fake crowd noise during games. It would appear by Blank’s statement that he already knows the investigation is not going to turn up good for the Falcons. Atlanta actually ranked tenth in NFL attendance last year and if I was a fan I would be embarrassed.
