    I watched some of the Yankees/Nationals game. They had what I thought was decent sound sweetening for the game. It wasn't like a laugh track where the sounds were real cheers or applause. The sounds were anything but real. They had a constant noise to represent the crowd background talk and then filled that will pseudo crowds sounds that I can't describe. It was nothing close to real sounds. It worked for me. It filled in the silence. They didn't try to pretend they were replacing the audience with a 'laugh track'.

    If this is the future, we'll all adapt and get used to it.

    My true personal test will be with how my emotions handle the NFL.

    I think the announcers will be more important than ever for all sports.

    I watched a portion of a game the other night. What was really weird was the cardboard cutout fans. Really? Why not composite some real fans? Maybe folks wouldn't understand the lack of masks and distance.....

    With regards to the fan noise, or lack thereof, it makes you realize the truth in the axiom that good video is 55% audio. Or whatever percentage you prefer seeing as this is the audio section.

    The cutouts is an initiative that some clubs offered to their fans. For a fee, they could send in a photo and get a cutout made and set in the seats.

    We did a live stream event for the San Francisco Giants the other day, the coaches, managers and players all weighed in on the cardboard, sounds and lack of fans, they miss the fans but they are
    glad to be playing at all was the impression we were left with.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Or it makes you realize that people only get excited about sports when they think other people are

    Do you know if they pumped the sound effects into the stadium PA for the benefit of the teams? I got the impression they did.

    ????. That makes no sense at all. Everyone gets more excited about everything when they are with a crowd. How about a rock concert where you're the only one in the audience. How about wedding reception with just the bride and groom and the parents. Consider an auction with two bidders in attendance. How about a riot with three people? How about the buzz you feel in NYC streets.

    I was just being a jerk because I'm not a big sports fan. Of course people get a buzz from communal activity. I should have kept my dumb mouth shut.

    That being said, I'll double down. I remember all the ladies applauding for Legolas the first time he showed his mug in one of the LOTR movies I saw in the theater. That was a fun communal experience. But I still like seeing movies with a quiet audience (usually I like that more). Or home alone
