Falcons could lose 2nd-round pick for crowd noise

Failclowns cheat and they STILL lose!! Dictionary definition of a loser!!

Persistent chatter at the Scouting Combine suggested that the Falcons will be losing a second- or third-round pick in the 2015 draft for the infraction. The NFL has provided no insight on the magnitude of the penalty the team will be facing.

If it’s a second-day pick, it wouldn’t be a surprise. As cheating goes, attempting to disrupt the ability of the opposing offense to communicate seems to be a pretty big deal. Given that it wasn’t a one-time thing but a two-year pattern tends to call for an even more significant punishment.

Re: Falcons could lose 2nd-round pick for crowd noise

2d round sounds about right, .

In Can'tlanta they call their sound system "the 13th man" and it came about because their "12th man" is so often on the IR/PUP lists, .

Man I hope them and the browns lose their first round picks. That could definitely seal up one of those OLB prospects for us, Beasley, Fowler, Dupree, etc. i'm hoping Beasley or Fowler falls.

They did this for 2 years that they know about. A 2nd seems light, thinking it will be no less than 2 picks, one for each year.

Whatever picks they take,if they even take them,should be given to us. Hey,I can wish,can't I?

Re: Falcons could lose 2nd-round pick for crowd noise

I ask a question; which is more detrimental to the sanctity of the game?

A pay for performance system or piping in artificial noise(which would be a huge unfair advantage for anyone other than the Falcons)?

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time

IMO Goodell is going to slap them on the wrist but honestly what advantage did the fake crowd noise give them in that dump. Seattle is the real ones this kangaroo court ran by Goodell should really be going after, those ***clowns have used fake noise for years.

I was thinking about this as well, it obviously had more effect on division foes. Impossible to leverage out the penalty on that level but something to think about in terms of fairness. Sound authorized to be pumped in at home games against them would be one option, or take away the QB speaker helmet.

Has there even been another team punished since the Bountygate crap? Hammer sure fell on us without all this debate.
