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 was actually created by the CBS production crew, not the Colts.
"CBS has informed us that the unusual audio moment heard by fans during the Patriots-Colts game was the result of tape feedback in the CBS production truck and was isolated to the CBS broadcast," the league said. "It was in no way related to any sound within the stadium and could not be heard in the stadium."
I know that many want to believe that the Colts were piping in noise. And I think where this story may have gotten its legs was in the head of some New England fan somewhere. (Note-how this video already has the Colts convicted.)
Sure the Pats thought it was loud, because it was. It's a dome. But no one in the dome heard that noise, did they? I have been to many games there, I can attest to how loud it can get. But to try to project the accusation that the Colts tried to use an unfair advantage against the Pats is both, ridiculous and it makes a person look as well-informed as a troofer.
Honestly, now. Are Pats fans having some moral and ethical issues with the fact that Belichick was caught cheating and desperately want to believe that everyone cheats, in order to justify their lack of outrage at their own coach's conduct? So much that they want to advance this BS theory, without first knowing the truth? That's all the NE fans could talk about yesterday and they did as if it was fact.
Well now, you have your answers. It was CBS. Put that in your pipes and smoke it. For crying out loud. I love football as much as anyone, but it's only a ball game and you won it. Be happy that you did. With all of the madness in the world, this is but just a minuscule speck at the bottom on the hierarchy of important things.
