#416: Crowd Noise as an Advantage

I don't like that crowds yelling at an NFL game can actually affects the game.  It's not like I think there should be a rule against it, I just don't like it because to me it's no different than throwing snowballs at the players to mess them up.  Also, it encourages fans to be quiet during the home team's offensive drives which stifles excited fans.  The solution will be for offenses to adapt so that they can run plays fine without being about to communicate audibly, but in the meantime, I think it's dumb that games might be decided because the scoreboard tells fans to yell and makes them feel like they have some purpose in life being the "12th man".  Severity: 3
