    Jets-Lions Ref asks crowd to be quiet?

    I just stumbled on this video on youtube.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XLQdUlK0_8&feature=related]Ref asks crowd to be quiet at football game. - YouTube[/ame]

    What's the meaning of this? Did there used to be a rule where the home crowd couldn't yell and cheer to disrupt the other team?

    There was one preseason in the late 80s/early 90s where they toyed with penalizing a home crowd for noise during a snap count or something like that. I think it was just preseason though. Not sure about this.

    I just can't imagine a crowd going that nuts for a preseason game.

    Broncos-Rams game in 2000 on Monday Night Football. The Rams defense was almost assessed a delay of game penalty because the Broncos offense couldn't hear because of the noise in the dome. I remember after the ref gave the warning, Kevin Carter encouraged the crowd to be louder.

    I was pretty young, but I believe the Chiefs were penalized for Neil Smith trying to pump up the crowd. Weird stuff.

    I remember watching the game that the OP posted about. The offense got two delay of games or false starts in a row. It was nuts.

    Re: Jets-Lions Ref asks crowd to be quiet?

    Pretty irrelevant nowadays considering pretty much all offenses utilize silent snap counts if/when they have to.
