Tune in to the Seahawks game.....Unreal how loud it is.
There's some kind of phenomenon in the NW that makes the stadiums really loud. Oregon, Oregon st, Seattle, and the university of Washington all have extreme loud stadiums.
No old people at games and no regard for being a cool broseph who has to stay reserved.
No frat boys leaving in the 3rd quarter...
I knew this was coming. LOL,,,Get ready for the onslaught...
Foteen could not be more right.
Dang, good thing I'm not old. Can't even go to a game without being hated on.
It is THE loudest. Proven fact. It was also designed to naturally amplify sound. It's really a monument to stadium design. However, here is a link about it being so loud.
I think the reason Seattle is so loud is due to the stadium set up.
Just saw a view of the upperdeck. There isn't 3 or 4 sections empty.
I'm sure that helps.

Seems that way, and as everyone pointed out the stadium is designed very well. I know the MLS teams in the Northwest have extremely loud stadiums, at least comparatively as well as the Trailblazers.

Michelle Tafoya had a mic set up and took two steps back and was barely audible, she took one more step back past that and you couldn't even hear her....unreal.
Trust me from multiple first hand experiences in Seattle and BDS, the Seattle stadium is much louder. The only time I can say BDS killed it was for Rocky Block.
I go to 1 game a year and that year it was UT. So happy I got to see it.
The thing with Seattle is it is not a family type of event. A lot of young people get getting ripped but they stand up and yell their asses off. Kind of like a futball game in Europe.
Sound must travel better in the Pacific NW air. All those stadiums are way smaller than those found in the SEC but they are all considerably louder on average.
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
Woah. Someone acknowledged the MLS.

I had some involvement with the stadium during design development. I remember hearing conversation that the hyperbolic shape of their roof would create echoes. As I recall the discussions, the shape of the roof covering causes sound to bounce back down onto the field and then bounce off the opposite side. Sort of like waves in a swimming pool. Most stadiums allow the sound to exit, not the Seahawk's.
