After the Pittsburgh Penguins held serve and took a commanding 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, the series shifted to Nashville. The Predators held serve as well at home and the series is now tied 2-2 going back to Pittsburgh. Apparently there are some Penguins fans now claiming that the Predators might have had some extra help playing at home. Allegedly the Predators are getting some good home-cooking by amplifying their crowd noise.
I believe Nashville is amplifying crowd noise. I used my own meter--read to the bottom of the article.

Atlanta Falcons did fake crowd noise as well. So it "is" a thing, but that reporter and that article about Nashville noise are a joke.

Nashville crowd noise puts Pittsburgh's crowd noise to shame.

This is not a new thing because the Atlanta Falcons got busted for pumping false crowd noise into the Georgia Dome about a year ago. The Seattle Seahawks have made a phenomenon about crowd noise by raising the 12th man flag before every home game. This is a part of home-cooking. This is why you work so hard in the regular season to get home ice advantage to have the hometown fans behind you cheering you on.
