    I'm a huge seahawks fan! I never knew about that rule! Wow!!!!! The 12 man helps energize the clink. It's sad that there are no fans this year. Thank god my hawks are still winning. They sure do miss the fans though. I'm so happy to hear that the fans were just as loud back in the day😃

    I recall seeing this rule in action with the Cowboys playing the Eagles sometime during the 80s? When dick Vermeil refuse to hike the ball because he couldn't hear his play-calling. I think they charge the Cowboys a time out too. I don't quite remember I was too young? And I think the Eagles went on to win the Super Bowl that year?

    Week 17 of the 97-98 League Year, Barry Sanders was in sight of breaking the 2,000 yard mark. Lions fans anticipated teh record breaking moment and were so loud when the Lions were on Defense, the refs stopped play until the fans quieted down...

    This day and age there’s tons of technology utilized to hear each other on the field and sidelines. I mean they even put mics in players helmets for videos. They only had their voices and shitty weak ass radios back then that made it hard enough to understand clearly understand just over light construction work, let alone the reverberation sound in a stadium that you can feel in your body.

    Remember very well how John Elway would complain about the crowd noise during the days when the Broncos had to play in Arrowhead. The refs at one point warned the crowd when the Broncos had to start a drive inside their own 10. Elway got knocked on his ass by Derrick Thomas for a safety and we got louder. Fuck them refs 😂😂

    I vaguely remember seeing a game in that era where Boomer Esiason was hiding behind his bench trying to rile up the crowd to make noise....can't recall if it was an away game or what, but it seemed like he and Sam Wyche were doing what they could to make a mockery of the rule. It was easily one of the dumbest rules the NFL ever tried to put in place...and that's saying something considering some of the nonsense over the decades
