“Pretty much a done deal” FOX will use fake crowd noise for games without fans

Fans quite possibly won’t be present for football games in 2020. But that doesn’t mean it will be quiet.

Via John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, FOX’s Joe Buck told Andy Cohen of SiriusXM Radio that “it’s pretty much a done deal” that the FOX and other networks will use fake crowd noise for games played without fans.

Buck also suggested that virtual fans will be used, so that when a wide shot happens the fans at home will see the appearance of a full stadium. Even if it isn’t.

FFS is humanity so mentally compromised that we have to live in a stage? This has nothing to do with Saints football but everything to do with that they will do with football this year.

On second thought, if they can drown out Joe Buck... make it happen. Permanently.

It certainly won't take anything away from the viewing of the game if there isn't going to be any crowd in the stadium to begin with. I have no issue with it. I hope they can mock up "Whistle Man" in the fake crowd. Will it be as good as a real crowd? Of course not. But, to me, it would make it marginally better viewing than a completely empty stadium. I simply see no negative as compared to the alternative.

Devils advocate... It is a 1/2 measure aimed at product quality but does not address the integrity of the game. Piping crowd noise into my living room does nothing for crowd noise present at a home field game.

If they were to pipe crowd noise into the game to simulate traditional football, would the noise volume be adjusted to match what that field normally sees?
