What stadium is the toughest to play at as the visiting team?
Assuming the home team is winning. I will add options upon request to the poll.
The RCA Dome deserves some consideration. The Colts are 17-2 there since 2004, the noise level consistently gets to that of a jet engine, and teams try to lobby complaints that the Colts "pump noise" into the stadium (though they've never done that when I've been there).
I still think the piped in noise was an issue. Jaguars.com Senior Reporter Vic Ketchman has noted that the RCA Dome is not nearly as loud as it was before the complaints. Several Steelers players also said there was a noticeable dropoff in the level of noise in the regular season game and the playoff game.
Does he have scientific evidence to back that? Because an independent study was done immediately after those accusations were made, and it was found that the next week against Tennessee (a team that wasn't even a competitor last season) the RCA Dome actually reached HIGHER decibel levels than it had the previous week. So, unless he can debunk that, or provide his own evidence to the contrary, I'll believe the scientific evidence.
There was no scientific evidence. Ketchman and the Steelers' players were merely voicing their opinion that they felt the crowd level isn't as loud as it was before the accusations were made. It could be nothing more than coincidence.
