    How Much Of An Effect Does The Crowd Really Have?

    There is no question that psychology plays a crucial role in sports performance. How many football games have you seen where the pressure of a clutch situation causes a player to make a poor decision and make you say to yourself "What on earth was that guy thinking?" Players from basketball recreation leagues all the way to the professionals often make poor choices that they wouldn't normally make under relaxed circumstances.

    Arguably one of the most influential factors that may cause a player to act irrationally is the atmosphere created by the noise of the crowd.Dealing with a noisy crowd (both home and away) has proven to be a difficult task as a loud crowd may cause a number of issues to arise, which include difficulty for players to vocally orchestrate, or to recognize, verbal play calls.

    The Football Crowd Noise Simulator Includes 23 Professional Sounds allowing for the perfect replication of a noisy football stadium.Each pad of the The Football Crowd Noise Simulator has a specific function that will mimic the sounds heard during common scenarios found in a high pressure football game.

    • Home Team Sounds - Crowd noise when the home team scores a touchdown, is attempting a field goal, intercepts the ball, fumbles the ball and sacks the opposing team.
    • Away Team Sounds - Crowd noise when the away team scores a touchdown, is attempting a field goal, intercepts the ball, fumbles the ball and sacks the opposing team.
    • Miscellaneous Sounds - Crowd cheers, ref whistle, crowd + band playing, crowd chanting "Defense - Defense", reacting to a big hit, booing, chanting a "5-4-3-2-1 countdown" and more.
    All sounds can be overlapped and used together to create a free-flowing crowd atmosphere simulated by the user as they click the pads according to what is happening during the practice session. The Football Crowd Noise Simulator allows both players and coaching staff to take practice sessions to the next level.

    For example, if you want to simulate a last second field goal attempt at an away game you can click "away FG ambience" to simulate the intensity of a roaring crowd, then hit "countdown" to replicate the play clock winding down. Finally click FG Make or FG Miss depending on the outcome of the kick.

    The Football Crowd Noise Simulator is not limited to any age group or skill level as the benefits can be seen across a wide range of players. Both professionals and those just getting into the sport will often times have trouble focusing regardless of how long they have played the sport.
