    On twitter they are debating over who is actually responsible (9vsFox) and whether or not it was at the stadium. Wtfffff

    I haven't used the traditional foxtel IQ platform for quite a while now but do they still do the "press the red button" for additional effects?

    Would be good to give viewers the option.

    I suggested this over a week ago. Was never mentioned as something they were going to try until yesterday. But yeh, they just made it up independently. They’ve never stolen ideas from this forum before either

    You know what, you’re right.
    In just one week they were able to pull it all together. The sound engineers, the audio production, the written program which usually takes a few weeks...it all came from your post on a forum which they most certainly read.

    Don't mind the ambient noise, but when they try to add cheers when something exciting happens it's on delay and has that subtitled foreign film feel.

    The cardboard cutout fans are worse, especially when someone's put one of Peter Sutcliffe, a notorious serial killer in there...

    Its ok, certainly not horrible. To make it more realistic, needs more booing and:

    "Get em onside ref"
    "Oh you're a cheat ref"
    "Send him off"

    I really don’t understand how anyone can ‘hate’ it... it’s just in the background, it’s not taking the focus from anything else and is largely unnoticeable. And the other thing I’d add, it’s made up of actual crowd noise from previous events, so it’s not like it’s a fake noise, it is actual fans, just not in the moment. Clearly it’s not as good as a real crowd with real reactions, but stops the atmosphere feeling empty.
    I can understand having a preference one way or the other, but any firm negative opinion is over the top.

    A cutout of Peter Fitzsimmons would be funny
