    Indianapolis colts cheating?

    I just saw this on profootball talk.com and after listening to this i did recall hearing it in the game.. however i wasn't sure what it was.. now with what they said the Colts might be pumping fake crowd noise in throgh some speakers.


    here is the link http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

    CROWD NOISE SKIPS AT COLTS GAME?

    For now, we'll mention only that there are renewed question as to whether the Colts are pumping fake crowd noise into their home games.

    how isn't creating fake crowd noise cheating? It not anywhere near as bad as what the pats did.. but its still cheating.

    Re: Indianapolis colts cheating?

    stealing play calls is cheating.

    making crowd noise, particularly when your OWN team is on offense, is not.

    It's noise - it isn't breaking any official rules, and it's all alleged anyway

    maybe somebody somewhere cares (more than likely a fan of a team that has really cheated), but no, you'll have to do better than that - at least for me to give a shit.

    I refuse to get worked up over non-issues, but if you want to, more power to you - me, I'm too old for that shit.

    Re: Indianapolis colts cheating?

    Crowd noise made by the crowd is one thing, and its why home field is important to get that "12th" man out there. And your right, its only alleged, it could have just been a stall in the mic's or maybe even the transmission of the game feed. But if it is the doing of the Colts, it is cheating. And it wasn't happening when the colts had the ball.. only when the pats did.. so the home team wasn't on the field when this was happening?

    All in all.. im really just stating that cheating isn't exclusive to the pats. They just got caught! and im not worked up about that.. my packers dont play either of those teams this season, well not until the superbowl!

    Re: Indianapolis colts cheating?

    like I said maybe somebody somewhere cares, and if you see it as "cheating" then fine, but I can't see it as anything more than "unethical" - kinda like calling a time-out a split-second before an opposing team's kicker is about to put the game-winner through the uprights...not a violation of the rules per se, just exploiting whatever resource you can to squeeze out a win.

    Re: Indianapolis colts cheating?

    Violation of "the rules" or not (and if it is, it's gotta be minor), I find it laughable that most of the complaints are coming from New England fans (sorta like what I assumed would happen in my second post in here).

    soooo predictable...

    Sorry, but as far as "cheating tactics" go, this isn't even close to the same scale as what those guys did.

    once again, BFD - it's real hard to care about this...although I am sure that francesca would have an interesting thought or two to lend...perhaps crissycruz would as well...

    Yeah, I lost interest in NFL along time ago. I'm starting to get back into it again this last year though.

    Re: Indianapolis colts cheating?

    So is it cheating like the 06 St. Louis Cardinals putting up opponent pitchers speeds below what the television crew was recording?
    Or the 05 Huston Astros closing the roof even on good weather days to create more noise inside the park?

    Like the Jeebus says...I see it as being dinks more then cheating.

    Re: Indianapolis colts cheating?

    I can see where adrenaline's coming from here. "Crowd" noise is one thing, but to use fake crowd noise is overkill.


    It's like using a bunch of huge fans to help stop a kicker from making a field goal. Sure, wind is something he has to deal with, but let's keep it limited to real wind.
