From the Seattle Times
The NFL sent a notice to the New York Giants and Seahawks, saying it would be keeping an eye — and presumably an ear — out to make sure the league’s restrictions on artificial noise are followed at the game Sunday. The notice mentioned allegations the crowd noise in Seattle was enhanced, though it did not specify the origin of that claim.
“It put a little smile on my face when I saw this memo,” Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren said. “If I’m a fan, I take that kind of personally. Like, ‘If you think last year was loud or the championship game was loud, wait until Sunday.’ “
I was at last Sunday’s game against Arizona. It was really, really loud. I’m sure the New York Giants aren’t too pleased about the NFL’s little investigation, since it’s sure to be even louder this Sunday.
My completely unscientific prediction for the game: Seattle 24, New York 17.
