Another Arrowhead Stadium crowd noise video has surfaced

Chiefs fan and friend of the blog Chase Snyder posted a really great video to Twitter Sunday morning:

The clip featuring John Elway from 1990 is well known among Chiefs fans, but this one is from a Monday Night Football game against the Raiders from 1992.

The Raiders have third-and-43 because of a personal foul and a delay of game, and running back Marcus Allen and quarterback Todd Marinovich begin complaining to the referees about crowd noise.

Then, two announcements by the head referee:

  • “The defensive team has been asked to help to quiet the crowd. We appreciate your cooperation.”

No luck, so:

  • “If there is further crowd noise, the defensive team may be assessed one of their remaining timeouts.

Marty Schottenheimer then turns to the Chiefs fans with his hands in the air in an effort to quiet them.

A few takeaways:

  • This is the best.
  • Al Michaels is ageless.
  • How/why in the world did the NFL ever have a “noise” rule?
  • Who thought that was a good idea?
  • How did it last for multiple years?

Never change, Arrowhead Stadium.
