If you ever went to a Seahawks game you would know, if the Ref does call time out because of the noise, it would just be louder when time resumes. The refs know this, they may give SF one time out, but, that would be a mistake. SF should just bring earplugs, any earthquake gear they have and crying towels. This game will be one of the hardest hitting games you will see this year………………Go Hawks………..Hawks 38…….49ers 21
Whoopsy daisy. My bad. A team can lose yardage for excessive crowd noise.
When, in the judgment of the Referee, the level of crowd noise prevents the offense from hearing its signals, he can institute a series of procedures which can result in a loss of team time outs or a five-yard penalty against the defensive team.
So. After the Seahawks zip through their time outs they’ll be penalized yardage.
And if you have ever been to a Badger or Packer football game, when the defensive players start to make that quiet down motion, you’d know it is a good idea to settle down.��
