    Security Guard Claims Colts Cheat

    Guard Claims Colts Enhance Crowd Noise
    BOSTON (CBS) ―
    The NFL may have concluded that the Colts weren't cheating against the Patriots on Sunday, but one of their own security guards is allegedly telling a different story.

    A day after some unusual sounds were heard during the Colts-Patriots broadcast Sunday, the NFL issued a statement saying what sounded like simulated crowd noise at the RCA Dome was actually created by the CBS production crew, not the Colts.

    But Bryan Foley, a photojournalist for CBS Station WBZ-TV, says an unidentified RCA Dome security guard told him Sunday that the Colts do enhance the crowd noise.

    Foley has been shooting sports for more than a decade. He was covering the game for WBZ-TV and claims the noise in the RCA Dome was deafening when the Patriots had the ball.

    "It was almost silent when the Colts had the ball," he said.

    The noise was so bad he asked a security guard about it.

    "I asked him, 'Do you go home at night with a headache? Because it's early in the first quarter and my head is already hurting.'"

    "He said, 'I don't know if you know this, but they actually pick up the crowd noise and pump it back through the P.A. (public address system)'"

    WBZ Audio Engineer Charlie Lucci said it wouldn't be difficult to enhance the crowd noise.

    "If you wanted to add crowd noise to any environment, if you were pumping something out, into the P.A., the announcer that kind of thing, there are recordings available of crowd noise; or you could make one yourself and you would just add it to whatever you're feeding into the public address system."

    It's not the first time Indianapolis has been accused of such tactics. The Pittsburgh Steelers complained about the same thing after a 26-7 loss at the Dome in November 2005. Since then, other teams have informally contended there is artificial noise pumped into the dome.

    The Colts have continually denied the accusations, and issued their strongest worded statement yet on Monday.

    "We trust this will put an end to the ridiculous and unfounded accusations that the Colts artificially enhanced crowd noise at the RCA Dome in any way," the team said.

    The telecast received the highest rating overnight rating, 22.5, of any Sunday afternoon regular-season NFL game since at least 1987 and had a 39 share nationally.

    funny thing is Nantz mentioned late in the game how sophisticated the colts crowd was....how they were so incredibly loud when the PAts had the ball yet you barely heard anything when the Colts had the ball...

    Because it's a legitimate issue. If the Colts truely are cheating, they should be punished.

    Like the Patriots right!? I can't believe you would even post this after the slap on the wrist your evil coach and owner rec'd.

    And the fact that Kraft complained when he's been condoning the cheating all along is even more atrocious.

    This isn't about the Pats.... It's about the Colts enhancing the crowd noise, which is cheating.

    It needs to be investigated.

    So was taping the opposing team's signals, but you weren't all up in arms over that, were you?

    750,000 fine plus the loss of a first round draft pick for doing what everyone else is doing isn't a slap on the wrist.

    The Pats caught the Jets doing the same thing in Foxboro last year but never complained to the NFL.

    $750,000 to the Kraft family is like the change you find in the seats of your car. You already have two first round picks and are already embarassing every team you've played so does it really matter? I say NOPE.

    Please include a link from a credible source to substantiate your claim that the Jets cheated against the Pats.

    It's funny how chowds are drawn to cheating stories like moths to a flame.

    How do you know, if it wasn't reported?

    Man, the Pats fans get absolutely shrill on this issue. Everybody cheats, they whine, in a desperate attempt to have the rest of the football world believe that somehow their Super Bowls are untainted. The perception of the Patriot way? Gone. Talk of dynasty, a team for the ages? Gone. History will not be kind to the Pats.
