Tony Dungy, Dave Maynard would be so disappointed. From WBZ.com :
A day after some unusual sounds were heard during the Colts-Patriots broadcast Sunday, the NFL issued a statement saying what sounded like simulated crowd noise at the RCA Dome was actually created by the CBS production crew, not the Colts.
But WBZ Photojournalist Bryan Foley (above) says an unidentified RCA Dome security guard told him Sunday that the Colts do enhance the crowd noise.
Foley has been shooting sports for more than a decade. He was covering the game for WBZ-TV and claims the noise in the RCA Dome was deafening when the Patriots had the ball.
“It was almost silent when the Colts had the ball,” he said.
The noise was so bad he asked a security guard about it.
“I asked him, ‘Do you go home at night with a headache? Because it’s early in the first quarter and my head is already hurting.'”
“He said, ‘I don™t know if you know this, but they actually pick up the crowd noise and pump it back through the P.A. (public address system)'”
WBZ Audio Engineer Charlie Lucci said it wouldn™t be difficult to enhance the crowd noise.
“If you wanted to add crowd noise to any environment, if you were pumping something out, into the P.A., the announcer that kind of thing, there are recordings available of crowd noise; or you could make one yourself and you would just add it to whatever you™re feeding into the public address system.”
