Nats Park has this same problem. They have the music turned up to NFL-stadium levels.
Somebody page Andy to the thread and he and I can trade commiserations and complaints for about 400 posts
So, do people like a loud park when they're watching on TV? I mean, if it's from the charge of the crowd rather than the stadium PA, I guess everyone does. But would it make you more likely to watch a game? I'm guessing the matchup, players, circumstances (playoff race?), and whether the game involves your local team influences the decision more.
In casual conversation I can't remember anyone saying they watched a game on TV because of the crowd. I guess ESPN thinks Yankee-Red Sox games are more of an event due to the crowd (at least they were events), and that might have worked the first 53 games they showed.
Its Time For........Dodger Earplugs!!!!
What I love about college football is that in at least SEC stadiums, the music comes from both teams bands.
There's so much music going on at a game nowadays 'cause I guess they figure the crowd has to be entertained and they aren't paying much attention to the game, anyways. I suppose every team probably has special music for their closer, too. It's kind of cliche now, but, once upon a time back in 1998 when they played AC/DC's "Hell's Bells" for the very first time with Trevor Hoffman coming in, it did send chills down my spine.
I think this definitely has an effect in soccer. Having super rabid fans has had a great effect on attracting casual fans and in some places, MLS games are seen as the cool place to be.
Tennis is about the only place you can still get that kind of quiet pastoral ballpark experience. Maybe cricket for those in the other hemisphere.
What's even more pathetic is that some teams like the Redskins are now pumping in artificial crowd noise in order to fool the TV audience
So does hipster just mean "young person" now?

I don't know how valid they are, but, yes, I recall reference to some studies that indicated that more decibels = more gulps and swallows. I think it had something to do with a heightened pulse rate and state of active alertness
Now if there were a similar deal being offered for the entire Kino and Criterion Collections
I come across the POV that atmoshphere is nearly as important as the teams/players involved often time on soccer boards and I wondered if anyone but a segment of the soccer-watching population cares much. (NBCSN seems to amp up the supporters' groups on MLS broadcasts in an effort to appeal to such people, who probably comprise the core of the small MLS TV audience.)
For example, if he attends a big win for his team, he truly feels that his friends, fellow fans, and himself helped win the game.
there are so many movies that I want to see available via TV and Netflix DVDs that I can barely keep up with my DVD acquisition pace as it is.
I don't know of any young people who enjoy ballpark noise. I find it completely bush league. I'm kind of surprised that there isn't more public backlash against this sort of thing.
I want noise at a ballpark, but it shoudl be coming from people cheering, clapping, chanting and yelling, not speakers.
That's an odd euphemism for theft.
Re: Loud ballparks:
Do you guys also worry about the youth of today? They're always walking on my lawn, and they won't get off unless I shake a stick at them.
We have goal music here in the UK. Fulham used to play Blur's "Song2"
hell, they've got TVs going sometimes now in our university library,
