Dan Steinberg of the DC Sports Bog tweeted that people were accusing the Redskins of pumping out artificial crowd noise during yesterday’s playoff game against the Seahawks. Numerous fans agreed.
Multiple Skins fans who were at the game have contacted me, convinced the team was piping in noise yesterday.

@dcsportsbog I was sitting in the club level section 322 row 12. Speaker above my head and I agree. The stadium would go instantly loud.

@dcsportsbog Definitely. Heard it clearly from 423, row 15.

@dcsportsbog um, yeah, there was definitely some artificial noise yesterday. Not the whole game, and not the first time.

This isn’t a surprise at all, teams are accused of this all the time.
