People losing their minds over this new horn. 

Alien Fart Horn

Packers are doing it because of scumbag "inherited" ticket brokers and Maude and Chester sitting on their asses for 3rd down.  So I see their point but a ****ing horn?  I say we open this up for consideration as to what should replace the Alien Fart Horn. 

1) 70,000 kazoos

2) 30 strategically placed Mexican futbol announcers screaming "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!"

3)  Gilbert Gottfried doing his best castrato singing Ave Maria

Discuss.

quit blasting noise pollution during the games and let the crowd make their own damn noise.  pretty radical, right?

when I first starting going to Lambeau regularly in the late 80s the place rocked and started it's own chants.  didn't need no steenkin' PA system blasting canned chants to "get the crowd going".   not to mention all the crappy commercials and other crap they constantly bombard the stadium with any time they can now.

sold my whole season package to a friend this year for the first time.  the above was part of the reason.

Welcome to the age of iPhone addiction. While not at the game last night, through multiple pans to the crowd in the stadium, I could see a number of fans in the hallmark hunched neck position obviously looking at their phones.  I think that's part of the reason for this "get the crowd going" schtick they are trying. 

I am not wanting to derail this thread, but it's so symbolic of this generation and the seemingly never ending requirement of being on the phone. Always. 

Been to a concert in the last 5 years? Jeebus. I don't even know why some of these "fans" pay 250 bucks plus to see their favorite artist when all they do is look at the LIVE experience on their phone! Why not just stay at home and look at it on  you tube?

OK, end of Old Man Yelling at Cloud Rant. 

I concur with everything, pboi.  I've noticed it in both places.  freakin' frackin' head buried in the phone while attending live performance people drive me nuts.

I've been to see hot bands that are just smokin' the place and when the song ends no one appears to be the wiser and there's no hooting/hollering/applause to show appreciation.  well, except me cuz I'm old school I guess and groovin' music really trips my trigger.  "but I just got a like on FB!" 

My fav is when two people are obviously on a dinner date and both are buried in their phones. World is going to hades in a handbasket.  

On another note, I liked it several years ago when before a kickoff or during ads the team would jump around (was the music "Jump"?) and get the crowd really into it -- until the No Fun League   told them they couldn't do it any more.

Not House of Pain- "Jump Around"?

That's the tune they play at Camp Randall at the start of the 4th quarter. Get's that place bouncin'. Not sure it would have the same physical effect at Lambeau.

Gladys and Herman would probably write a sternly worded letter.

Seriously, has anyone thought of a designated rowdy section?  If you go into it you know what you're getting into (not fight club)? Want to get a stadium amped up, have a bunch of good natured idiots bouncing around in a pen while George and Alice relax with an old fashioned somewhere else.
