NFL will allow teams to use video to rally crowd noise

The 12th Man doesn’t need much help when it comes to generating crowd noise, but the collective notoriously known as the loudest fans in the NFL who provide the largest home field advantage are going to get some anyway when the Seahawks head into next season at CenturyLink Field.

According to the Associated Press, starting in 2013 NFL stadiums will allow their clubs to use in-stadium scoreboards to encourage crowd noise during entire plays.  Teams will be permitted to use video to ignite crowd noise at any time, and the in-stadium scoreboards can use audio to spark their fan base until 20 seconds remain on the play clock – down from the 30 second cutoff of years past.

The alteration is the latest in a series of changes aimed at enhancing the in-stadium experience for fans.
